Monday night I dragged a car full of equipment across town. It’s not often I get a shoot start time of 8pm, but I can tell you it was well worth it. It was an absolute joy to shoot a commercial set at Born this Way Body Arts (off of Middlebrook Pike in West Knoxville). I cannot thank owners April Thomas and Bryan Thomas enough for having me and going all out for a great commercial set.  I want to also thank staff members Mariella Buddle, Emily Walker, and Tyler McClure for being such good sports and doing whatever I asked. I walked in with a distinct vision of what I wanted to get out of the location and the staff,  and boy did they all deliver.

Let me say a special thanks to Payton Poteet for doing makeup for the lovely ladies of Born this Way (and for powdering down a shiny Bryan), and last but not least, thank you, Noel Zitawi for styling all that great hair.

If you’re in the market for  a tattoo or piercing, I cannot recommend Born this Way Body Arts enough.

Here are some of my favorite images from our set.
