Did you know that you can also find me on Facebook? My albums on my Facebook fashion and beauty photography fan page are current. So, as I work on updating my work here on Google+, please feel free to check out my more recent work there. Please be sure to "like" my page to keep up with my latest work and behind the scenes previews, as well as castings, creative musings and other discussions that are exclusive to my fan page. I try to share unique content to each page to make the experience more enjoyable to those following me in more than one place. And, hopefully, it won't take too long to get caught up here, as well. 

Have a great weekend, plussers!

+Vee Ess, I think I have over 1,000 backed up friend requests that I'll likely never get through, but if you'd like to follow my personal profile, too... please feel free. I post almost everything publicly, so there's very little difference between the two. I do post most of my work to my fan page though, so if you'd like to keep up with my work, you'll want to like up my fan page, as well. My profile is more about me, while my fan page is more focused on my work. :)

Wow. I am overwhelmed by all the wonderful birthday wishes here on Google+ this morning. I've been trying to respond to them all personally, but I don't think there's any way I can keep up. So, as I +1 them all, I just wanted to thank everyone for the warmhearted birthday wishes. My day is off to a wonderful start and you all have something to do with that!

Hope you all enjoy a wonderful day, as well! =)

Good morning, Plussers!

It's a brisk Tuesday morning here in central Florida. I don't envy those of you living further north! I'm contently working on creative development in the studio this morning. I think I'll be spending my day mostly indoors! 

I hope all of you effected by this brutal cold front across much of Canada and the US stay safe and as warm as possible today! 

Ok, now back to work....

Good morning, Plussers.

Pardon my silence of late. I haven't had a lot of time to try and figure out Google+'s new layout until this past week. While I like the new grid style home page, the update has certainly brought with it some quirks. I'm finding navigation to be a pain, uploading images so that they go into the desired albums is tricky and the "join community" button does not function.  I think I have things worked out well enough for now to get back to posting, but it's going to take a while to get everything figured out. Hopefully the kinks will get worked out soon. 

Anyway, back to some new images...

This is from a test shoot with model Orsolya Hajnali (Wilhelmina Models) that I shot at the end of March. It was a fun shoot and gave me an opportunity to break in a few new Elinchrom modifiers, which I happen to adore. This was shot with the 39" (100cm) Elinchrom Rotalux Deep Dish Octa with the outer baffle removed to get a hard, contrasty light source that is very popular in fashion photography.

Now, jumping forward a bit. I love monochromatic images, particularly high contrast black and white fashion and beauty shots. This is from my latest fashion shoot, entitled "Mystique". The entire series was shot and retouched in black and white and the entire team knocked it out of the park. This is one of my favorite shots from the shoot. I will share more of my images from this great creative with you soon. 

In the meantime...
Happy Monday! :)

America's Next Top Model alum, Stacy Ann Fequiere (Ford Models), is such a delight to work with in the studio. This is from one of my favorite shoots of 2013, with a top-notch team that makes my job as a fashion and beauty photographer so much fun.

New fashion photography for your mid-week photo stream.

This was shot with one of my favorite Russian models, Alina (The Lions NY). She is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside... such a delight to work with and always so much fun. Beautiful hair and makeup work by Monique. The team really did a great job on all counts. I work with awesome people!

  • Acailawen + Wright, Photographers
    Fashion, Beauty & Still Life Photographer . Creative/Art Director . Stylist, 2010 - present
Editorial, Advertising & Commercial Photographer - Fashion . Beauty . Still Life . Botanical

I am a Florida-based editorial, advertising and commercial photographer specializing in fashion, beauty, food, related still life and botanical images. I have a strong background in art/creative direction, concept development, creative team selection and management, photography and digital post production. I am also an agency-approved test photographer, shooting portfolio images for agency represented fashion models, as well as fashion-standard models seeking representation.

In addition to work for editorial and commercial clientele, I also shoot conceptual, still life and botanical images for stock licensing and sale as fine art prints as my schedule permits. 

As an environmentalist and a vegan, I am a strong supporter of sustainable, cruelty-free products in the fashion and beauty industries. I am eager to work with fashion and beauty clients who do not use animal derived materials in their products, particularly those who use sustainable materials that do not cause damage to the environment. As such, I have set a few important policies regarding the work that I shoot. Those interested in hiring me to shoot their fashion or beauty campaigns, lookbooks, editorials, etc. are asked to please keep the following in mind.

I do not photograph real animal fur or products tested on animals. I do not wish to support the fur trade or use of animals in laboratory testing, as I find both to be both barbaric and completely unnecessary practices. As such, while I do photograph faux furs, I require that man-made alternatives be properly disclosed as such upon image publication in advertising, lookbooks, editorials, and other online and print publication. No exceptions.

I also do not knowingly photograph beauty products containing animal byproducts, like lanolin. While I know that some leather products cannot be avoided completely, I strongly prefer to photograph man-made leather alternatives over genuine leather, as much as is possible and practicable. 


I am also an earth-inspired artist and eco-friendly accessories designer. Both my art and design work consists of mixed media from a wide variety of sources and often include reclaimed, recycled, natural and found materials. I follow environmentally responsible studio practices as much as possible and practicable and offset what carbon I generate through studio work and my websites each month. Additionally, all of my work is cruelty-free and vegan.
