the creative

I've been looking for makeup and costume inspiration for Halloween this year, and was considering a day of the dead, la Calavera Catrina. This lead me (via poppytalk) to Ryan Doco Connors | Photography. His creative portfolio is complete eye candy. In a behind the scenes series, Ryan chronicles the process of several photo shoots with just as much style as his final product.

The makeup in Ryan's creative series is accomplished by wildly talented Vancouver makeup artist Dina Day. I love the process photography available from both Ryan and Dina. People are never more interresting than when they're in the midst of creation.
