Take a look behind the scenes with the Arianny and my Hasselblad feature.
I have been working with UFC fighters for the past couple years and have always wanted to do a shoot with Ring Girl Arianny Celeste. After meeting her a couple times I still wasn’t able to secure a shoot. Luckily, Urijah Faber later texted me that Arianny wanted to work with me. Bing, bang, boom I got a date to shoot. Around the same time, I had been asked by Hasselblad to do a small feature on one of my shoots. I knew this would be a perfect joint opportunity.
After some stressful days leading up to the event, everything fell into place. As usual I made my call to Phu Styles to help me style the shoot. She showed up with amazing wardrobe and accessories. Christy Jewel, my favorite sales rep from Calumet, hooked up some Profoto gear. Matthew Frary from Hasselblad came with his videographer Victory (an amazing talented photographer). On top of all that, my good friend Mike Aniff supplied me with some very unique guns for the shoot, a customized AR-15 and a Colt handgun.
We began the day with a video interview about myself, which I felt went pretty smoothly. Usually I’m super awkward but this time I felt really comfortable. Victory was a great interviewer, she made the process real easy I will be done editing them soon and they will be posted.

After Arianny was done with her hair and make up we were ready to shoot. We did it all relatively quickly as usual and the pictures turned out great.
