Amy's Fashion Session

On October 18th I did a fun fashion session with Amy. She braved quite a few things on this particular Sunday morning. The colder weather that hit Jacksonville along with the creepy and dirty abandoned building known as Public School Number Four where we shot. It took me over a year to find out the actual name of this building and then it was a hunt to find where it was actually located downtown. How do you find a building that technically no longer has an address? I was so excited when I finally found it through much googling and went to check it out a week prior to shooting. If you know me at all, you know I love putting pretty people in ugly places ;) I can't help it. So it was perfect and Amy was quite a trooper. The light was not where I expected it to be at all but it actually ended up working in my favor, resulting in some pretty awesome shadows and light spotlights in these dirty broken down rooms. Walking around the place was kind of sad more than scary, honestly. You can tell it used to be a beautiful building, really well constructed and classic from the early 1900's. Lots of vandalism has been done to it over the years (I was editing out so many racist and foul words, you have no idea..haha). I'm very happy I got to shoot this concept there while it's still standing.

I'm shooting a band at this same location this weekend, so stay tuned for a totally different look and feel for those photos.

Here are some of my favorites:
