Los Angeles Men’s Groomer | DATCH Print and Video Campaign

Los Angeles Men’s Groomer | DATCH Print and Video Campaign

As a Los Angeles men’s groomer I had the pleasure of working with DATCH on their 2020SS print and video campaign shoot in Los Angeles, California. @hueman.it was contacted by DATCH to hire as a creative agency in Los Angeles to produce its 2020SS campaign.

DATCH creates sportswear collection for contemporary men. Streetwear is a style of casual clothing that became global in the 1990s. It grew from California surf skate culture and New York hip hop fashion to encompass elements of sportswear, punk and Japanese street fashion.

About the creative agency, @hueman.it helped the company to re-position DATCH brand on the streetwear market with the #urbanstories SS20 campaign. That is one of the reasons why the agency decided to shoot in Los Angeles, California. They curate brand strategy, creative direction, and content production.

We worked on this shoot for 2 days in Los Angeles, CA. On the first day of this shoot, we captured campaign images and on the second day, we focused on both the photo + video aspect of the commercial shoot. Our team was small yet very professional, the director and fashion photographer flew from Italy, Milan.

Our models are represented by @wilhelminamodels. Wilhelmina Models is one of the largest and most successful modeling agencies in the world, founded by Dutch supermodel Wilhelmina Cooper. Wilhelmina Models represents men, women, children, professional athletes, and celebrities. The agency has offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami, and affiliate offices in North America and throughout the world.

As a Los Angeles men’s groomer, I hope to work with this international team in the near future as it was an awesome experience!

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | The Walt Disney Branded Video

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | The Walt Disney Branded Video

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, The Walt Disney Company hired me for their Disney Art 4 Ways: Maleficent branded video shoot in their studio. We shot this branded video for 2 days.

I was hired to do camera-ready makeup for 4 people. Camera-ready makeup isn’t about heavy coverage or overly bright colors. It’s about understanding how and what the camera is going to see.

Things you must need to create a camera-ready makeup and as a Los Angeles makeup artist I use all the time:

  • Contour: When taking a photo/video the camera makes you look flat with no dimension, so contour your face to create shadows, making you three-dimensial to the camera
  • Avoid Shimmer: A little shimmery highlight on the cheekbone is OK, but try and avoid shimmery eyeshadows as flash photography reflects light back, causing the skin to look washed out. Matte colors work perfectly if you are going to be in front of the camera.
  • Pack on the Translucent Powder: Before adding blush or bronzer, pack on the translucent powder and use shine-free foundation. For the same reason you want to avoid shimmery eyeshadows, you want to use translucent powder to tone down the natural shine of your skin. Toning down the shine is why celebrities are constantly being touched up when on camera.
  • Use Primer: Prime you face and eyes before applying makeup
  • Apply Mascara: Mascara will really make your eyes stand out, and your overall look will be perfection.

The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios complex in Burbank, California. I had a great time working with The Walt Disney Company team as a Los Angeles makeup artist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

TV Commercial Makeup Artist | AliveCor Commercial

TV Commercial Makeup Artist | AliveCor Commercial

As a TV Commercial makeup artist, I was hired by Williamson Adams, a San Francisco based production company to work on an AliveCor TV commercial video + photo campaign. We worked on this shoot over 2 days around Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, CA. Our celebrity talent was Mark Spitz. Mark is an American former competitive swimmer and nine-time Olympic champion. He won seven gold medals at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, all in world record time.

On the first day of this shoot we captured campaign images and on the second day we focused on the video aspect of the commercial shoot. Our team was small yet very professional. I bought many wardrobe choices for Mark so we would have multiple options to choose from on the shoot day. As we got ready with the wardrobe I simultaneously worked on his hair & makeup. It was great working with Mark, he is very used to branded shoots due to his endorsements of many athletic brands, past and present.

AliveCor is a medical device and artificial intelligence company that sells ECG hardware and software for consumer mobile devices. The company is the first to receive FDA-clearance for a medical-device accessory to the Apple Watch.

About the agency Williamson Adams: They build brands from the ground up. They refresh those that have gone stale. They dream up marketing and ad campaigns. They handle digital projects of nearly all type. They create content in the form of writing, film, animation, photography, or just about anything they can take a crack at.

I had a great time working with the Williamson Adams team as a Los Angeles TV Commercial makeup artist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | Gillette Fuse Commercial

Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | Gillette Fuse Commercial

As a wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Gillette. and Justin Bell Productions on their new product launch “Gillette Fuse” commercial.

I had 3 talents/models to style and work on their hair and makeup looks.

The client requested V neck and crew-neck tee options with a not-too-high neckline in solid colors: white, grey and Gillette blues only and for bottoms sweats or non-distracting pajama.

We asked the talents to arrive fresh out of the shower hairstyle and contemporary cut, as the makeup looks go I applied camera-ready makeup. The talents shaved on the camera so they had to have 2-3 days of facial hair.

A professional wardrobe stylist is one of the trending professions within the fashion and commercial world globally. What a wardrobe stylist does is select the clothing and accessories for commercials, editorials, print or TVC advertising campaigns and music videos produced by advertising agencies and production companies. This profession is really essential to these companies because if not for the styling and branding, the message of the commercial will not be communicated across to the audience and customers.

As a TV commercial wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, I mostly work on TV commercials, branded videos, and campaigns. I really enjoyed collaborating with the production team on this Gillette commercial. I get excited about working with brands and about what I can contribute to their project. Most of all, I love the delight of seeing my work used by clients in some of their major campaigns.

TV Commercial Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Scotch Porter TVC

TV Commercial Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Scotch Porter TVC

As a TV commercial makeup artist in Los Angeles, I was hired by HCI advertising last year for their Scotch Porter TV Commercial shoot. We had a night shoot in a butcher store in Hollywood. I had about 25 male actors/models to do makeup for. It was a very straightforward shoot because we were going for camera-ready looks.

Being camera-ready means the products and techniques used to achieve the overall look are compatible with high quality cameras that photographers and videographers use. That means you will be HD compatible and as technology advances, makeup products and techniques advance as well. When I work as a TV commercial makeup artist in Los Angeles I always prepare my makeup kit with the essential products.

Camera-ready makeup isn’t concerning heavy coverage or too bright colors. It’s about understanding what the camera is going to see. It’s about proper tone, accentuation. Clean, moisturized skin is that the ideal palette to work on. The camera can pick up on dry or excessively oily skin very easily. Television cameras and bright lights will alter your appearance drastically and there’s no way around it makeup is essential. A primer will ensure that your foundation doesn’t sink into your skin.

Scotch Porter is more than just a brand; it’s a call to action. When Calvin Quallis left the comfort of his cushy desk job last year to pursue his dream of creating the ultimate men’s grooming line, he did so with the intent of making the most stylishly accessible products in the game. Scotch Porter is for the modern day man who wants to look his best at all times. Your first impression is your last impression, and while you rock your distressed denim, cashmere sweater and leather bag or even your suit and tie, we’ve got you covered on the rest. From head to toe.
