A day of hair

Posted in Beauty, Behind the scenes, Fashion, Photography, workshop with tags , , , , , on November 24, 2011 by erichason

I was hired to photograph for a hair styling workshop.  All participants flew in from Japan to train with top stylist Michio Shiramizu.  Tuesday we had a model casting and selected 6 beautiful models from Major, MC2 and Fentonmoon.  The workshop took place the headquarters of Milbon USA located in the heart of Soho.  The objective was to shoot in the street but the weather report was ominous.  I set up studio equipment as a back up.

None of the students spoke English, the models and I don’t speak Japanese.  Charades was the lingua-franca.  Smile needs no translation.
