Jessamyne Rose – What Was

  Jessamyne Rose – What Was~ There was so much beauty to be found on the island of Kauai. And I don’t simply mean the lovely Jessamyne Rose. Everywhere you turned, breathtaking nature. And even the more desolate areas, like a beach I photographed her on, with bare tree roots and stumps, exposed by ocean …

Meluxine – Dress Handfuls

    Meluxine – Dress Handfuls “Aw, we lost the sun,” Meluxine said, as she noticed the gorgeous shafts of sunlight that until very recently had been beautifully falling on her through the window, had faded away. She was wearing a sparkly gold and black striped dress by Mango and when the sun hit it, it …

Photo Daily: Morgan Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris

  Packing light isn’t really an option when you’re heading to Paris to photograph beautiful couture. We arrived with six suitcases full of fashion. An occupational hazard. But the locations are inspiring and that’s why you lug a crazy amount of clothing and camera gear with you. There’s nothing like shooting in Paris. We made …

Photo Daily: Candace Nirvana Shrouded

  Candace Nirvana is a tremendously inspiring model who also happens to be a brilliant photographer. Candace and I had great fun exploring this abandoned cannery in Baja, Mexico a few years ago. One of the items she brought along for the shoot was a thin wisp of a white dress. At one point she …

  I should have been packing for my trip to Paris the next day. As usual, I had barely started putting together my travel kit the night before. Besides clothes and cameras, I hadn’t yet packed my film in the lead bags that I used to carry with me to prevent fogging from the x-ray …

Photo Daily: Blue Rachael

  Sometimes a wonderful photograph comes together in an instant. I made this Blue Rachael photo on the roof of my studio just as we were getting ready to leave for the airport. We had a half an hour before we were leaving when Rachael suddenly appeared in a lovely dress and asked if we could …

Photo Daily: Carlotta Reaching in the Dark

  It’s fun to play with time when creating photography. This photograph of Carlotta Champagne I made is full of time playfulness. She and I were both looking to create something a little out of the ordinary. I first saw Fritz Lang’s 1927 film, Metropolis, in my pre-teen years. It was a profound visual experience that greatly …

Photo Daily: Vanessa Montreal

Montreal is a lovely city. It’s as close to Europe as you can get without crossing the Atlantic Ocean. In fact, the reason I was there was because we were using Montreal as a stand-in for Paris while shooting a TV commercial for Tresemme. Vanessa was one of the beautiful models on hand for the …

Billy Sheahan Photography July 2009 Postcard

As the old song goes… “Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’, into the future…” Where has the summer gone already? It’s gone into a prolific amount of work, happily. New adventures and new inspiring muses. One of the new models I have been fortunate enough to begin working with is Asphyxia. Of all the women …
