Here are some images from a fashion campaign I shot for the Dutch fashion brand C&A. We captured a bit of a sunlight feel in the studio for this one using a single strobe head mounted with a grid above and to the side of the camera. Most of the background light came from this single strobe head, but we pumped it up a bit more by adding two lights on each side, and behind the models, all using small umbrellas. This is a photography lighting set up that I use quite a bit in the studio as it works well for department stores and more commercial fashion shoots. It adds a sunny feel to any campaign, makes the clothes and models look good too. And believe it or not we did almost no retouching to these images, it looks like this straight off the camera.

For AVON, the worldwide cosmetics, lingerie and fashion jewelry design company, Chris HUNT realized several shoots in Mexico City.

AVON describes the newest scent as “the sexiest fragrance you’ll ever wear and the scent of a true seductress…’, and it was composed by master parfumeur Frank Voelkl. ‘He explained that golden amber gave the fragrance impressive warmth, which is seductive and unstoppable. He selected all the other ingredients by hand to emphasize the specific scent that truly has several dimensions…’

Whether fashion productions on the beaches of Mexico, lingerie, and perfume campaigns in the studio or lifestyle shoots outdoors – Chris HUNT serves a broad target when it comes to advertising photography and film. We present you the newest show reel and a commercial for waterproof cosmetics.
Check out the latest version of my show reel of the commercials I have directed. It’s a mix of things I’ve done for clients in the U.S.A. and Mexico. It’s been a lot of fun getting to this point with the motion work, and I have a lot of new projects just completed or in the works right now including commercials, music videos and film. I can’t wait to get them all edited so I can show you what I have been up to.
And here is a shout out to my Director of Photography, Ivan Vilchis Ibarra… you can see his work here: http://www.ivanvilchisibarra.com He’s an extremely talented DP and a great guy to work with. One of the things I have learned about directing is that it’s all about assembling a talented team, and working together in an open and collaborative environment. As a director I need people like Ivan around me to offer their expertise and input. And I also have to give them the freedom to try their ideas out. After all, the goal of every one on the set of a film project is to support the director and make the project look as good as it possibly can. So a big thank you to everyone I have worked with on these projects!
