I Would Like To Introduce You To Shoneah Ross. A Very Talented Model Who I Randomly Ran Into On A Train On My Way To A Studio Shoot In NYC Back In 2017. Since Then Our Partnership Has Spawned Many Dope Moods, Videos & Stills (Check Her IG | @bald_bombshell).
I Named This Series "Monochrome Muse" Because of The Elements This Project Consists of: Black & White Photography (Which I Absolutely Love), Combined With Minimalistic Make-up & Skin Editing & A Muse With Striking Features To Top It Off.
This Shoot Took Place on The 29th & Like Many of Our Shoots We Have A Standard System That We Execute Before A Shutter Is Released. (1) We Start With A Concept (2) Create A Mood Board That Correlates To Our: Current Climate/ Location, A Specific Mood, A Color Scheme or Inspiration That We Got From A Magazine or An Art Legend That I Am Studying At The Time. (3) I Decided On The Best Light Set Up/ Location (4) We Agree On A Date & Time. (5) Then Shoot.
The First Round of This Series Started With Shoneah. But My Plans Are To Keep This Series Going With Multiple Models And Watch It Evolve Right In Front of My Eyes.
