Unlike a simple photo shoot for family or boudoir most Alternative photo sessions take hours, days weeks or months to prepare for.
Alternative modeling has been around for decades but is growing in popularity and can now be found in many mainstream modeling projects.
Today's Alternative Modeling is often about finding the shadows in the darkness of your imagination and bringing it to life in your reality.
Some will make the statement "Be Yourself" which contradicts the essence of Alternative Modeling. Part of my process is helping them to let go of what they perceive as normal and to not be afraid of your dark side. In fact I try to teach them to seek out that dark side and play in it's shadows.
