you know how on TV the secretary will take down her hair – and then, after shaking her hair in slow-motion, becomes a vixen?  katherine villari can do that without the slow-motion hair shake.  she can look innocent and sweet all the day long and the second i point the camera at her she turns on the sexy.  it’s pretty fantastic.

fashion designer thuy diep

thuy (pronounced “twee”) was born into a family in vietnam who ran a custom-made clothing shop and a tailoring school.  she learned the ropes of tailoring as a kid and soon developed a love for fashion.  now, in america, she continues the family tradition of finely-crafted clothes and expresses her love of fashion through her label “Thuy.”  i recently shot thuy for the fall issue of YRB magazine and here are some of my favorite outtakes.

the day before we were supposed to shoot, i got an email from tabitha saying that she had just gotten out of the hospital from some kind of bug or virus or whatever.  she was all kinds of messed up for like over a week, but she was still on board so we made it happen – except we took things nice and slow and kept her topped up with some un-nauseating goldfish crackers to keep her from passing out.  we had a long day, but she stuck it out.

if you’ve never been to the desert before, i have three words for you: PRICKLY – PEAR – CACTUS.  it was pretty obvious that neither me or my assistant had ever spent much time in desert-like conditions because within 30 seconds of getting to our location, we were covered with cactus needles.  big ones, small ones, heat-seeking ones…  holy moly.  the first one to REALLY get me was mr. prickly pear himself.  i felt a nice jab in my ankle and i looked down to see a happy little ball of death spikes hanging from my leg.  when i tried to pull it out, i got stabbed about 27 times in my fingers.  i walked around to find a pair of gloves and it just dangled from my ankle like some gothic christmas tree ornament.  when i got the gloves i tried to pull it slowly, but it just pulled my skin with it (like if you pinch your skin with your fingers and pull it).  so i snatched it out real quick-like, and the cute mace-like ball was replaced with a dull burning sensation pretty much all day.  that was the first round in a long, heated fight with the desert landscape.  later i was shooting and my assistant yelled “yowwwwwwww!!”  i looked over at him and he said with big eyes, “man, i just bent down and sat on a cactus.”

Nicole LeBris

sometimes you’ll see someone who’s not a model on a set and you’re like, ” dude, why aren’t THEY in front of the camera?”  that’s pretty much how nicole got her start.  she was a makeup artist/hair stylist and eventually somebody told her she was on the wrong end of the camera.  good thing, too – cause she’s pretty awesome at modeling.
