MacKenzie Grissom photographed by Kevin Warnock - picture 2, September 29, 2012, Haight Street, San Francisco, California USA

Yesterday, September 30, 2012, I photographed 19 year old model MacKenzie Grissom. She started modeling when she was 15.

Except for eyeliner, MacKenzie is wearing no makeup.

She’s studying Business Administration in college, the first model with that major I have photographed. She told me she plans to earn an MBA after she completes her undergraduate education.

We created this photograph on Haight Street in San Francisco.

This was MacKenzie’s first visit to Haight Street. It was an intense introduction, with lively street performers, including one who used his vintage hard sided suitcase as a kick drum.

The weather was beautiful, and lots of people were out.

This photograph was taken in the doorway of Ambiance SF, which is a part of a chain of trendy boutiques in San Francisco. MacKenzie was standing outside the store, looking at the rack of clothes for sale situated outside the door of the business. I was standing on the public sidewalk, far from the door. A curt employee approached and said no photographs were permitted, even outside the store. We left, but I was baffled. Every other store on Haight Street has welcomed me — truly welcomed me. I hope that someone higher up at Ambiance will reach out to me and invite me to use their store as a backdrop. It’s to the store’s benefit, because I mention places I visit on my blog, any my photographs reflect well on the stores, I believe.

I took this picture with a Canon 5D Mark II camera. Click the photograph twice in delayed succession to see the full size version of this picture.

MacKenzie Grissom photographed by Kevin Warnock - photo 1, September 29, 2012, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, California USA

Today, September 29, 2012, I photographed 19 year old model MacKenzie Grissom. She started modeling when she was 15.

Except for lipstick and eyeliner, MacKenzie is wearing no makeup.

She’s studying Business Administration in college, the first model with that major I have photographed. She told me she plans to earn an MBA after she completes her undergraduate education.

We created this photograph in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.

This was MacKenzie’s first visit to Golden Gate Park. She got an intense introduction to Golden Gate Park, because we entered the park at Haight Street and Stanyan Streets, where dozens of hippies routinely hang out. We were offered drugs, despite the fact that a San Francisco Police Department car was parked 30 meters away, in plain site and fully marked.

The weather was beautiful, and lots of people were out. There were multiple games of soccer underway in the park, with portable goal cages set up for the elementary school age children that were playing.

This photograph was one of the final shots of the afternoon session, which started at 2pm and concluded at 5pm.

Haight Street was lively, but less lively than during shoots I completed last month, when it was mobbed with so many tourists I had genuine difficulty taking pictures that contained just the model.

I ran into my friend Aimee on the street and we said hello, but didn’t stop to talk since I was in the middle of the shoot. It was nice to see you Aimee.

I also had a lovely conversation with Anna, an employee at the Skunkfunk boutique at 1475 Haight Street, San Francisco, California USA. I photographed Heli Patel there on August 6, 2012, in the doorway, looking over the women’s clothes the Skunkfunk sells. Anna had introduced herself to me then and asked me to send her a link to the picture if I posted it. I did, and she invited me to stop in to take more pictures in the future. I didn’t take any today because the store was preparing for a big party for this afternoon, and it didn’t seem right to try to take pictures while their staff was busy getting ready. Skunkfunk made this picture I took of Heli its Facebook Profile picture for over a month, which was very flattering. Heli had never modeled before my shoot with her, so I suspect it was particularly exciting for her to get some exposure after her first shoot.

I took this picture with my Canon 5D Mark II camera. To see the picture at full resolution of 21 megapixels, please click on it twice in delayed succession.

Arlene photographed by Kevin Warnock - picture 5, June 20, 2012, San Francisco, California USA

Today, September 29, 2012, I publish my 5th photograph of Arlene.

We completed a photo session on and near Valencia Street in San Francisco on June 20, 2012.

Arlene had her first child just eight months before this shoot.

Her husband and sister came along to the shoot, and I thank them for their help.

This is one of the first shoots where I got to use my new pop up changing tent, which lets subjects change in private anywhere, even on a busy street with dozens of people walking by.

I took this picture with my Canon 5D Mark II camera. To see the picture at full resolution of 21 megapixels, please click on it twice in delayed succession.

I have ten more pictures of Arlene that I plan to publish. I will wait to show you the rest because I am eager to show you the results from a photo shoot that I had today. Once I show you those pictures, I will publish the rest of the images of Arlene.

Yes, Arlene is wearing orange lipstick. It makes these photographs extra eye catching.

Annika photographed by Kevin Warnock - picture 7, shoot 3, May 13, 2012, Piedmont, California USA

This is the 7th photograph in a series of shots I will publish from my 3rd photo session with Annika.

I took these pictures on May 13, 2012 in an elegant private home in Piedmont, California USA.

I love shooting on location in other peoples’ homes. If you have a photogenic home, fancy or entry level (but fascinating), and would be willing to allow me to use the location at no cost, please get in touch with me.

Annika photographed by Kevin Warnock - shoot 3, picture 2, May 13 2012

This is the 2nd photograph in a series of shots I will publish from my 3rd photo session with Annika, on May 13, 2012.

My first shoot with Annika, on April 22, 2012, was her first shoot ever with a photographer, as unbelievable as that may sound.

This third series of images was taken in an elegant private home in Piedmont, California USA.

I love shooting on location in other peoples’ homes. If you have a photogenic home, fancy or entry level (but fascinating), and would be willing to allow me to use the location at no cost, please get in touch with me.

Today I will begin listing the shoot location in the title of my posts.

Today I will also begin ‘tagging’ my posts with the shoot location, which will help my readers find shoots from a particular town, city, state, province, country or other named area.
