Lauren Linton – Fashion and Swords

Posted on June 7, 2011

Lauren Linton Draws Her SwordWhat happens when you give a beautiful, well-dressed model a sword? You get an intense, mysterious look with a touch of fashion!

These photos are from a recent shoot for an upcoming CD release by a local production music house. The style of music on the CD is inspired by the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill. I wanted to avoid the obvious yellow track suit with quarts of blood stains. I was drawn more to the imagery of Uma Thurman as “the bride.” Instead of aiming for a bridal look, we went with a more vintage wardrobe.

Lauren has a youthful, delicate look that provides a strong contrast to the look and to the aggressive content of the photos.

Just to have a different look, we stepped outside to do some shots. While not on the shot list for this project, it never hurts to have a different option. Again, I liked how her red hair played with the background.

I had a great creative team for this shoot. Thanks to all for your hard work!
