Raleigh NC Modeling Session - A nomad in corporate america

Across the street from my office is a pile of rocks.

They look like ordinary rocks - or so I thought.

Up close, they look like something that reminds me of the mountains of Afghanistan. And it didn’t hurt that Mecca dressed the part.

Photographers are always looking for cool spaces to shoot, especially those that don’t require special access or come with the risk of arrest. And especially those that can make it seem you’re in another country.

But who knew that one would find such a cool space that’s surrounded by corporate buildings?

As we most things in western Wake County these days, I’m sure this space will be another corporate building in a year or two. But for now, I’m enjoying the space, and the imagination it has given us.



African royalty

This shoot came together with one look of the dress.

We had a completely different concept planned, but after seeing the dress, which she never wore before, I immediately thought of African royalty.

Then I thought of Black Panther. And yes, I also thought of Black History Month.

Talk about perfect timing for this shoot.
