Modeling Portraits: Kelsea L. - Preview

Here's a first look at my shoot with this beautiful young woman, Kelsea Lawson. Although she's currently pursing her nursing career, she made some time to put on some high fashion looks and slip into some heels so that we could snap some incredible photos. And I can't forget to mention the stunning hair and makeup styled by her mother, Pam Snyder. She had Kelsea looking like a "rockstar" in no time at all.

Stay tuned for more photos....

Portraits: Jake N. - Preview

During my recent trip to Wilmington, NC, I had the opportunity to do several shoots with new model, Jake. He's already earned the nickname "brown eyes" from some 6:12 fans and authors, and I'm excited the possibility of Jake becoming the next exclusive 6:12 model.

With those piercing brown eyes, his scruffy surfer body and his stylish sense of fashion, Jake was a blast to work with.

Here's a sneak peek from my shoots with Jake...

The Mermaid Collection - Preview

   Check out a sneak peek of "The Mermaid Collection" by 6:12 Photography by Eric McKinney
   The beautiful and unique mermaid tails (and our merman's tail) were provided by Eric Ducharme, designer and owner of The Mertailor in Crystal River, Florida. The Mertailor provides both custom and pre-made mermaid and merman tails for clientele all over the world. Each tail is one-of-a-kind, made from the highest quality materials to create an appearance that will make anyone do a double take and question the existence of these mythical creatures. 



   As the owner of The Mertailor, Eric Ducharme has been creating mermaid tails since he was just a kid. What began as mermaid tails made from garbage bags, masking tape and the sheets off his own bed eventually turned into tails sewn by hand with a needle and thread. He was only 14 when he began filling orders for his tail designs. Today, Eric is creating his tails out of silicone, urethanes and latex rubbers, and his clientele includes Lady Gaga, Target, Saturday Night Live, Walt Disney studios, and Pirates of the Caribbean
   It was a true honor to collaborate with Eric for an opportunity to shoot with some of his incredible Mertailor designs. No matter where my shoots took place with these tails, we were constantly surrounded by crowds wanting to watch the shoot and inquire about how my "mermaids" were possible. Huge thanks to Eric and The Mertailor for making this collection possible, and specials to makeup artist Missy Young and all of the models as well. You can ask any of the models (or the helping hands at each shoot), being a mermaid isn't an easy task. 
   
   Here's the first look at 6:12's "The Mermaid Collection." 
   Makeup artistry and hairstyling for the mermaid shoots in Wrightsville Beach were provided by MUA Missy Young

6:12 in NYC: Tyler Gattuso with Silver Model Management

   As the finale to the NYC Silver Models Collection, check out my photos of fitness model, Tyler Gattuso from our shoot together at High Line Park in New York City back in June.
   A strong model and a natural in front of the camera, Tyler gave me perfection with every shot. Not to mention, this guy knows how to draw a crowd. At one point during the shoot, there was an audience of at least fifty "fans" in the background, behind me, snapping photos with camera phones and asking for pics with Tyler. Although he stayed focused on the shoot, Tyler still took the time to say hello and take snapshots with his audience. With his handsome good looks and his charming personality, this guy is definitely going places!
   Tyler is signed with Silver Model Management, an elite model management company featuring athletic, lifestyle and commercial models. Silver Models is also currently the leading fitness model agency in the country, and it was huge opportunity for 6:12 to work with some of their talent!

6:12 in NYC: Damian DeCantillon with Silver Model Management

   Here's a look at my best portraits of fitness model, Damian DeCantillon during our shoot together in Central Park in New York City back in June. Damian is definitely what I would call a "gentle giant." With all those muscles, he's an absolute beast, but his personality made him a blast to work with.
