Post Apocalyptic Fashion: A homage


For the past year I have had the pleasure of teaching a few photography classes at "The Art Institute of Las Vegas". This quarter I am teaching the location class, which has been a lot of fun. Every other week, the class meets at a different location for a photo shoot. Last night our little group met out on the dry lake bed on the way to Laughlin, Nevada. The assignment was fashion.
Usually I will plan to do a demo shoot for the students, just to give an idea on lighting and equipment, props, etc. My Idea: Tank Girl© Fashion. (I don't know, it just seemed to make sense with the way I've been feeling about all the stuff happening to our poor Earth lately, being Tank Girl is an post-apocalyptic character......)
As most of you know I am a huge fan of comics, and I just love the Tank Girl© Character created by Jamie Hewlett & Alan Martin. The story of Tank Girl© takes place in a bleak futuristic Australia (click here for a link to more info). So with that in mind, what better jumping off point for a fashion shoot out in a stark, desolate place in the middle of nowhere. Right?
I know that this has been done before , most notably in Vogue magazine, but for me not being a fashion shooter, It seemed like it would be a cool challenge.
Anyway, I managed to talk my friend and model Ashley Angelo into posing for me, Lynn Vacek, one of my best friends, agreed to come out and do the make-up, and my good pals Todd miller and Richard Reffner donated their time as assistants. The big guns were provided my buddy Robert Bowman, and his brother in law John Stoner .
Of course it was crazy windy, but we went for it undeterred. (We will be blowing dirt out of our equipment for the next year!) The shoot lasted for about an hour, until a bit after sunset.
I'm pretty happy with the results, let me know what you think.

  18. One of the places I have found some excellent Art classes with a difference is at Artemystic.com. They're located in Las Vegas and offer classes on Expressive Arts, which basically means using art as a means to self exploration. I recommend taking a look. This is something very innovative and different.
