Manage episode 342554900 series 2794455
In this episode we meet Molly Van Kley, a photographer who is currently located in Augusta Georgia. Her initial dream and career protectory was in fashion editorial photography, and she found success having been published in over 20 magazines. In that process she developed mad collaboration skills as she connected with other up-and-coming artists, including make-up artists, models, hair stylist and others who were looking to build their own portfolios.
We learn that even though she has settled down and is figuring out the young mom thing with a toddler and twins, she aspires to do more in fashion editorial work. We also learn that she has adapted and has brought her portfolio and her skills and experience to her current clientele, made up of corporate customers,. and most-explored in this episode, fabulous high-school seniors looking for an amazing portrait experience. As you might have guessed, these are not your typical high-school portraits. Molly goes all out with her seniors providing them with an extensive five-hour photo-shoot experience with professional make-up, wardrobe, hair styling and extended sessions which are informed by mood-boards born our of intense pre-shoot collaborations between Molly and her high-school senior model.
In addition to learning about light, shadows, the best way to take a selfie and branding one's work, we learn about Molly's creative process and the way her drive and experience as a fashion photographer has pushed her to fulfilling work away from the fashion scene and runways in Augusta, Georgia, a full two hours outside of Atlanta.
