First let me say a big thank you to OTC Beauty Magazine for giving us the opportunity to photograph the event. I’m also incredibly excited to announce this is our first officially published work for Luxum Studios.
Photographers R. Craig Wood and Walker Wood covered the day that started with a stop in Buckhead to give the editor of OTC Beauty Magazine, Haley McNeal, a lift to the event from her posh city apartment. Once we arrived and made it past the check-in, Ms. Taliah Waajid came out to greet us personally. There is no doubt why this show is such a success every year. Taliah is as professional and warm as she is beautiful. She was sure to make us comfortable with the layout of the show and to personally ensure our access.
Upon first entrance to the showroom floor Haley had an opportunity to interview up and coming designer Keenan Zeno of Zeneaux menswear. After the interview we moved on to the vendors. I am always amazed at the sheer amount of products available and the vendors that represent them. As you flip through the pictures remember each one of these shows represents only a fraction of what is available to the public. Just imagine trying to keep up with all the product shots. Than can be a major photography challenge in and of itself. I understand that most manufacturers now provide at least the basic product shots these days.
As we perused through the long isles we were able to get a couple of interesting shots of some very interesting hair-dos.
Here you can see the favorite of the day. I hope her ride is a convertible else she’s going to have let someone else do the driving and lay down in the passenger seat after having that hair weaved in.
Atlanta’s own Asha Mandela made an appearance at the show as well. Here you can see how she has to carry her hair in a pouch on her back. Now that’s dedication to the growth of the hair industry.
Overall it was a great day and a wonderful opportunity for Luxum Studios to add a major Atlanta event photography experience to its portfolio. Thanks so much to all involved.
