A Vintage-Inspired Fall Collection – fashion, commercial, and product photography in Portland, OR

A few days ago, local designer Alyson Clair unveiled her latest collection for Fall 2009 on her web site, so now we finally get to share some of the photos! 

We shot outside an old Vavoline building in an industrial area of North Portland, and it was a cool spot, but it also had its challenges. If we’d started shooting too early, and the outdoor light would be too harsh, but if we waited too long, the neighboring buildings would cast a huge shadow across our setting. Throw in some partly-cloudy conditions that had the sun passing behind clouds periodically, and things get a bit tricky.

That meant we had to work fast and be ready to make quick changes, which is, fortunately, never a problem when we’re doing the shooting. We shot 3 different models in multiple outfits, and finished with plenty of time to savor our Saint Cupcakes (courtesy of Alyson), and then head out to enjoy the rest of a gorgeous day.

If you like what you see, you can pick up these vintage-inspired, figure-flattering pieces at several boutiques in town. Check out the Clair Vintage Inspired web site for a closer look!

Monday Snapshot: Fall clothing gets Sweet – commercial and fashion photography in Portland, Oregon

It’s a big week for Portland fashion… because Portland Fashion Week begins in just two days! We’re particularly excited for PFW’s Thursday night showing, because one of the three designers selected for the Emerging Designers showing is one of our beloved fashion clients: Mira Fannin of Sweet Skins! Word is, she’ll be debuting an all-new collection of delicious denim, and we’re excited for her and curious to see what’ll be coming down the runway. 

So, today’s Snapshot is a peek at the rack of clothing samples from our Fall ’09 photoshoot with Sweet Skins. Just a little homage to Fall Fashion and to Mira’s work, because it’s finally starting to feel like fall, and slipping on some warm and comfortable (and, of course, fashionable) threads is sounding pretty excellent today. 

P.S. If you visit the Sweet Skins web site, you can snag some of the new Fall items we shot in the online shop. They’re comfortable, eco-friendly, and very cute!
