VIKTORIA IVANOVA vs THE TWO PIECE
STYLIST - Carrie Jo Cornwell
MAKE UP - Viktoria Ivanova
STUDIO -  Treehouse Studios

It’s Friday! Thought I would get all #fbf with you all. Even though I think #fbf is totally like #tbt. I guess people just need any reason’s to post anything, why not, right? To each his/her own and do whatever makes you happy. But I thought I would post something that I shot at the cool as hell Treehouse Studios cause I hear rumors that a certain someone might be doing the lighting/photography workshops there in the future. That certain someone is probably me and that is still rumor. And you all love rumors. But lets get the hype machine going now. Who else love the storytelling aspect of lighting than I? And who is more secretive than I? (unless you listen to me weekly on our podcast THE CAROLYN AND JOE SHOW ) So this could be an awesome rare opportunity to get into my strange lighting theories. But it’s still rumor…

I think this B-Side image from the 2014 Taboo girls get naked calendar that I shot featuring model Tiffanie (instagram @yodaeatscupcakes ) and make up by @karenmichelemakeup qualifies for this weeks #humpday photo. You tell me, then buy some new comic books today.  Wanna shoot with me? joecarabeo.com

I’m excited! I think this is the best Magic Bullet yet! And I’m not just saying that cause I have a Black Magic Tales story titled “The Old Gang” and is illustrated by the amazing cartoonist Carolyn Belefski and is the very first ever full colored Black Magic Tales story. It’s also the closing story to Magic Bullet #9. No, I’m not just saying that. I’m also saying its the biggest Magic Bullet to date. Carolyn Belefski put together another amazing issue.- Joe Carabeo

HANNAH ELVINGTON vs THE HOUSE

MAKE UP and HAIR by HANNAH ELVINGTON

So, I was thinking of what I should post this Thursday, the day that some people call “Throwback Thursday #tbt” also the day that I call “Thursday” and I realized something, this Throwback Thursday needs some Hannah Elvington? So in continuation of what I apparently have been doing this week, I reached into the archives to bring you some of my new unreleased work featuring Hannah Elvington, who has probably one of the best Aerial Dancers in the biz. Hopefully this fulfills a good majority of your Throwback Thursday needs. 

Wanna book me for a shoot?

yup, if you noticed, I totally did a throwback to the verbiage from yesterday’s post and just switched a few words. Cause, why not.

Hannah, is awesome. I repeat, Hannah is awesome. I was thinking this day would be a nice time to release this series of images we did when we were left with some open time on our rental booking and a whole studio lot. So of course we chose to shoot at their Evil Dead house. Always love working with Hannah on any project, since day one.

Make sure you watch Hannah fly with Richmond Virginia’s HOST OF SPARROWS.

NIK NAK vs THE SHADES

So in continuation of what I apparently have been doing this week, I reached into the archives to bring you some of my new unreleased work featuring Nik Nak, who has probably one of the best back arches in the biz. Hopefully this fulfills a good majority of your Hump Day needs.
