We recently completed our first Buckle Denim Model Shoot! I’m so excited about my new partnership with our local Buckle Denim Store. Buckle is a high end denim brand with some amazing denim jeans and a host of other stylish designs for adults and youth. I personally fell in love with Buckle jeans about two years ago and have practically replaced every pair of non-Buckle jeans in my closet with Buckle jeans.
Through over a year of building rapport with our local Buckle store manager Kellus Sanchez we finally got the green light from corporate to do some co-marketing projects together. We scheduled a quick model shoot to capture some of their latest spring and summer styles for marketing pieces to promote upcoming Denim Parties. A Denim Party is a great in-store event where you can go into a Buckle Store, get a custom fitting by one of their talented stylists and enjoy savings to walk away with some amazing gear.
My DJP Me Models were definitely up to the task of representing Buckle and Derek Johnson Photography studio and did an amazing job at modeling their styles. Check out the images from the shoot. Be on the lookout for more information about upcoming Denim Parties with local Buckle stores.
I got together with one of my amazing young clients Bailey Tignor for a fun Americana photoshoot in downtown Rock Hill, SC. Bailey is a lovely young lady who I’ve had the pleasure of photographing on multiple occasions. She and her mother are family friends and loyal clients and I have a ball every time Bailey and I get together for a shoot.
The theme was Americana to celebrate the coming Independence Day holiday. We steered clear of the classic flag hugging poses and opted to just celebrate the American Flag colors. For this shoot young Bailey actually scoped out all of the locations while she was driving around downtown Rock Hill. She found some amazing locations around the downtown area while driving around and quickly shot me photos from her phone for me to review.
The shoot was amazing and fun even with overcast skies. We squeezed every bit of sunlight we could out of the late afternoon day and ended up with dozens of beautiful images.
Enjoy your Independence Day and enjoy these beautiful images.
This first location is an old train perched in an abandoned parking lot right as you enter downtown Rock Hill.
This next location was a beautiful mural wall along one of the main downtown roads. We attracted quite a bit of attention at this location as people stopped to compliment Bailey and ask for my business card!
With the sun fading fast we made it to our final location – A beautiful park with a fountain dancing in the background.
