Here we will feature Vanna Joy, a local model that we have worked with on many projects. The images that we have created together have been featured on a number of websites, and magazines including The Modified Dolls and Star Maker and in Retro Lovely. We met Vanna when she accompanied her sister on a shoot. Yes as you know we support bringing people to your shoot for a variety of reasons.
Vanna Joy shoots lots of different genres
One of our favorite things to shoot with Vanna has been vintage pinup. You have to have the details right to shoot vintage pinup and this takes a team effort. Vanna Joy loves to shoot rockabilly and pinup shots as you can see in our cigar girl and our alley rockabilly set. She also rocks the classic “school girl” shoot along with some alt glamour shots used in a variety of website model of the month submissions.
A pleasure to work with
As you can tell in these images that Vanna is serious about her work as a model. She varies her expressions well and moves well between poses. She is confident in per posing and isn’t afraid to try different poses as well. Remember when you are shooting it is ok to try different poses, if they don’t work, they don’t work. no harm or foul.
Some of our favorite work with Vanna Joy
Vanna Joy in a Rockabilly Set
This photoshoot was great fun and as some shoots can, drew quite a crowd. Images from this set have been published in a number of pinup pages and magazines and featured here of course. Note Vanna’s variation in her posing and expressions while also interacting with the setting and keeping joints bent. We shot this with both a one light set up and also just natural lighting. It was hard to pick just a few images from this set, and here are some of my favorites.
Vanna in a typical glamour set
This set was shot about a week after our first set shot together. We had earned Vanna’s trust and had a lot of fun with our first shoot. This set was a quick set and was shot with the specific goal to submit a few images to a lifestyle brand website’s model competition. We followed our typical methodology with this set working through a variety of wardrobe changes, poses and expressions. We also worked through a few different perspectives which creates a bit more edgy feel. Note Vanna’s expressions also a little edgy and much different than her other shoots. This was the desired feel for this shoot specifically.
Our first Shoot with Vanna
Our first shoot with Vanna Joy was a two look set. We shot both a cigar girl set, and then we followed that up with a classic school girl set. This set was a great start to friendship and working together on a number of shoots.
