    “Dark Horst is a new Horst Couture collection, a collaboration from designers Horst and Ms. Steamy. It springs from Gothic inspiration, starring subtle silvers, vibrant ebonies, and elaborate reds. Interchangeable pieces allow for customized looks. Pair it with an exquisite statement necklace by Ms. Steamy for an even more refined ensemble” – Horst Couture At the end of 2014 we here at Blind 7 had the pleasure of meeting an amazing designer Horst, and with in a few month we had set up to shoot his line at the time which created the first fashion series “The day Ohio stood still” after the year long battle to get it published we decided the next line we would just self publish, and that’s exactly what were doing here!   A few months had passed since the release of Tdoss, Horst and his lovely wife Jessica had been hard at work on there new line “DARK” and after seeing just a small preview I knew these dresses needed shot in a out of this world location. a few years back some very good friends of mine over at TIDY Photography and Abandoned aperture had taken me and my crew to Gary IN for a fun filled […]

With all the ups and downs of 2015 the year ended on a high note with us moving the studio into a new location, it didn’t take long for us to become excited about the new place as I personally am a HUGE fan of vintage things and our new home and studio are located in a 176 year old Victorian home located on the west side of Cleveland. with 12 foot ceilings and wide sold wood doors the architecture speaks of the history of this beautiful home real hard wood floors and beautiful ceiling sconces it was not only a no brainier for us to live in but a great place to show case my pre 1920s book collection, and with a living room thats about 20×20 enough room to set up shop. The main room for shooting came with some interesting wall paper its a very tacky 1940-50s floral print from floor to ceiling.

The day Ohio stood still: A Dark fashion editorial As with every end of the year I sit and think of goals for Blind 7, some small and some large. Setting goals helps push me throughout the year to grow and better myself as a person and as an artist. 2014 was no different, and coming to the end of December I had set a few goals for the new year. Looking back on it I nailed on the head. I got to travel more, I got to shoot new faces, and I completed some large projects. One of those goals i made for myself was to shoot a Dark Fashion editorial in hopes of having it published in a magazine such as Vogue or W. That was the goal i wanted to tackle first in 2015. At the very beginning of January I sat down and started planning this dark fashion editorial. I put so much time and planning into this shoot. First I found an amazing designer, Horst Cotoure. As my luck would have it, it just so happens he was local (that like NEVER happens). I contacted the designer and set up a sit down meeting with […]
