Fashion Editorial: The Notorious Tammie Brown
During my recent trip to LA, I got to work with RuPaul’s Drag Race superstar Tammie Brown. Having watched her on TV, I had all these expectations but was pleasantly surprised to learn that she’s not only very down-to-earth, but also very quiet and reserved. Designing the shoot was a challenge because all of her previous photos have been vintage-inspired — a style that she excels at — so I tried to do something different, yet true to my own style. I styled them after the infamous lovers Bonnie and Clyde. With the help of my friends at Dave Graham Auto Literature, I was able to use their amazing 1932 Ford Roadster — which was actually from a plantation in Hawaii! Working with Tammie Brown was really something and I can’t wait to do another shoot with her again!
Big thanks to my assistants Michiko Hammond and Robee Aquino!
