Surviving the Apocalypse, and Looking Fierce to Boot

Children of Alison Nunn-Holstad

You may remember from my introduction post me crouching down in front of a box filled with children. Above is one of the shots from this location of what I like to refer to as “The Orphans”.

MUA: Harmony Ray (for model Alison Nunn-Holstad)

On Sunday, August 5th, I got the opportunity to work with a variety of models with different interpretations of what the post-apocalyptic fashion will be, rub elbows with some pretty awesome photographers and designers, and get covered from head to toe in dust and grease. This event was put on by The Hideout Forum, an online arts community in Portland, Oregon.

The truck yard of an oil company was run rampant with over 30 post-apocalyptic models from 3-40 years old. I got to work with about 8 different models, and am already in the planning of working with a few at later dates. It was great fun, and by the end of the event it really did feel like we were living in the post-apocalypse, especially because there were no available restrooms on location and it was in the low 90’s. All in all, it was a great day of shooting, and even I looked post-apocalyptic by the end of the day. To view more of my favorite shots, check out my carbonmade portfolio at .
