This super fun, gorgeously lit headshot was made on-location at the fabulous Champagne Creative Group in Las Vegas. We set up our full 5-point lighting, including our beautiful Zeppelin 59" deep parabolic softbox. Combined with an uplight reflector, and two gridded kicker lights behind left & right of my clients, and finished with a separation light glancing off of the black fabric backdrop, we made so much hubba hubba and we had so much fun! I forget exactly which of the Champagne Creatives suggested we start up the bubble machine but it could not have more perfectly complemented the brand and look of this band of super creative custom, live event elements professionals.
Husband and wife superstars Heather "The Feather" Remillard and Rolando Espinoza brought The Champagne Creative Group to Las Vegas in 2003. The Champagne Creative Group is an entertainment design & production company, which develops and performs original, WOW factor concepts for globally recognized brands, retail environments, product launches and celebrity clients.
I was honored when Rolando invited me to create headshots for their ever expanding team of creatives, flattered, too, because of their reputation for excellence. And I knew it would be a blast. The combination of gorgeous lighting, beautiful people, some good tunes, bubbles and an industrial fan plus a little bit of champagne added up to one of the most entertaining shoots I've done in a long time.
Rolando arranged for our friend Michael Scott, owner of Sizzle Reel Media in Las Vegas to document all the fun and he put together this high energy reel below. Thank you Michael!
