Avarie LaRae by Rich Burroughs for Fixation Magazine issue #2, Boundaries.
This was one of my favorite shoots I’ve done. It’s been so different for me shooting for the magazine. We’re given a theme for each issue, and that’s been a new way of working for me. And I usually work very spontaneously, going mainly with the model’s impulses. For this story I didn’t have anything as specific as a storyboard, but I did have a general idea of the progression and some specific shots I wanted to try.
And Avarie is awesome. I loved working with her, and it was exciting for me to get a face in the magazine that I think a lot of the readers might not know. The community of film photographers that shoot with models and the group of good fine art models are both pretty small, and you see a lot of people shooting the same faces. I love a lot of those faces and will be happy to shoot them many times, but it’s also fun to get someone new in the mix.
I think there are a few print issues of the magazine left.
