Helmut Newton 80’s Inspired Bodie Lee – Ray J. Gadd Photography Collaboration

Back in June my good friend Bodie Lee came to me with a vision to shoot an artistic, vibrant colored, 1980’s Helmut Newton series of portraits. Having worked with Bodie in the past, I was delighted to have another opportunity to collaborate on chic, out of the box shoot. Bodie brings a very focused energy and direction to his projects. Every detail from make-up and wardrobe to styling and posing is meticulously arranged in advance. It is truly a photographers dream. My only real responsibilities were to stage backdrops, dial in lighting and to shoot away. These three great individuals really turned it on as soon as the I moved behind the viewfinder. Below you’ll find the favorites from the shoot. If you’re interested in setting up your own photoshoot, please feel free to email me at raygadd@stevesmithphotography.com. Cheers!

Models: Addis Manley, Bodie Lee, Hillary Bonine
