Styling Photoshoots

Someone asked me recently about my experiences with styling for the photoshoots we create for Gloomth. Really, I fell into that side of my business- but it’s become a bit of a passion.

I like making things for shoots, for the most part I make all of the accessories you see in our photos. From jewelry constructed out of actual cookies to rhinestone and spike encrusted eye patches. It’s a fun way to experiment and get some really interesting details for our shoots.

One of my favorite photoshoot-experiments was a reconstructed 1970s wedding gown that I hand-dyed and then shredded. It was for a friend’s portfolio shoot. The skirt was a sea of detail- peppered with fake pearls, ribbons, antique scrap fabric, and torn pages from an old book (a love story to be exact) that I found at a thrift store sewn in. It took about 6 hours from start to finish but I loved the finished product, and the ghostly rustling it made as a model moved in it. I also did all the makeup and hair for this shoot, it was one of the first conceptual photoshoots I art directed and styled.
