I submitted a very short autobiography to the editor-in-chief in order to become the featured photographer for the Big Hair issue. She didn’t use my autobiography for that issue, but instead, she offered me a featured spread in her next issue, Feathers. When I mentioned collaborating and camaraderie in my writing, it obviously resonated with her because she wanted to feature my creative team in that issue as well.
When I thought about feathers, I immediately thought about Cheryl and her Best Showgirls in Vegas (BSV) Models. We spent a few hours on hair and makeup at the official BSV house/headquarters, which was full of beautiful and elaborate feather costumes.
The theme was “Phoenix Rising”. I used 4 models – 2 to represent “dark angels” and the other 2 to represent the “phoenixes”.
Because the theme was a bit more darker, I had the models wear the feather “backpacks” with only a bra and laced panty. I was trying to emulate the Victoria Secret Angels.

It is always fun catching the makeup artists and models off-guard with candid behind-the-scenes shots! LOL
