Tattoo Photography of Kristy Flowers
My first tattoo photography session featuring someone with extensive body art was with Kristy Flowers. She was introduced to me by an Italian rapper Nunzio La Rosa ( Elys ). Elys was in my studio making a music video earlier this year and Kristy was one of the performers in the video.
I took some BTS pics of the video shoot at the time. When you have great models with interesting and creative tattoos in the studio you shouldn’t let money get in the way of making images. I photographed Kristy and fellow Italian Nico who were both looking cool with their outfits and tattoos. That’s Italians for you…always looking cool.
We did the usual thing of making friends on Instagram… Fast forward a few months and I see Kristy posting some images on Instagram which, to be honest, I didn’t think did her justice. So I invited her in for a collab shoot.
We didn’t plan anything really, Kristy arrived with a variety of cool outfits and we just free-styled using a variety of lighting techniques. I started with hard/soft light mixes, so started with a magnum reflector and a softbox fill, then moved on to a straight hard reflector with barndoors for the room corner shots.
Then back to beauty dishes for the red background and bolero jacket shots. Needless to say, I forgot to take any set-up BTS images because I’m a numpty and always get caught up in the photoshoot and forget.
This is mostly a gallery page for the fashion portrait shoot with Kristy. However, I’m dressing it up as a blog post about tattoo photography for SEO reasons. Scroll down to see her gallery. The rest is just me padding out the copy to keep the SEO gods at Google happy. If you’ve stumbled across this whilst researching photographers to shoot your tattoos I’m obviously available.
