Yesterday I went out on a photo shoot with Rebecca Belcher to Gateway to Darkness Haunted Attraction. For those of you that don’t know, GtD is the only Pro Haunt in Alaska and they hold the bar very high compared to all of the Non-Profit Haunts we have.  Michelle and Sam Marsh are the owners and both are active within the haunt.
The main theme of the shoot was ghostly haunted with the models wearing mainly whites and grays.  Michelle worked the airbrush for whiting out faces while a couple of her makeup artists did the detail work. Sorry, I didn’t catch their names.
There were four photographers total, Rebecca Belcher, Sandee Rice, Mark Laroza and John, that I need to verify the last name of, and one videographer Kyle Murphy that is Som Ep’Laceak Media.  The number of models numbered somewhere in the 12-15 range. Most were professional models  both female and male. A few males, that had come with female models, were persuaded to join in the on the fun. Who can say no to dressing up before Halloween??!!
We had roughly four hours of shooting time, which seemed to fly by once everyone got into the flow of things. All in all it was really fun running around in the dark, the hard part was leaving and having to return to the bright reality of the outside world.

I’m going to post a few pictures for now, when the photographers make them available I will provide more and update the names of the male photographers.

I could keep going!! You guys get the idea…go check out his work.

As quoted from her website Senyphine:

Born in Grenoble, in the Alps, Nature is my inspiration. I like to draw and paint since my childhood.  My Art is a study in light and shadow. I am a traditionnal and digital artist.
I use and mix different mediums to make my paintings :  pencil, black ink, charcoal pen, acrylic or watercolor painting….and  i often finish the details,  the work of light and contrast on Photoshop. I like to explore all the possibilities of the different mediums i use. I suggest things playing with the light and  huge contrast to convey a vision of the world close to the childhood’s nightmares but full of fairy.

You can find the works of Sandrine Replat/Senyphine on her website and Deviantart.

You can see a photo of her on the Ballistic Publishing website here. The below photo was printed in their Digital Art Annual book Expose 6, the photo is called The Raven.
