Editor’s Letter<br />

We live in uncertain times. <strong>The</strong> world is in a state of emergency, our planet is changing in ways that beg for an extreme call to<br />

action! And yet here at <strong>Breed</strong>, we’ve decided to start a fashion magazine. I sit back and wonder, does the world really need<br />

another magazine? ANOTHER fashion magazine at that? To answer the question I thought to myself how fashion has always<br />

been fantasy to me. A fantasy I can escape to and dream. I fell in love with fashion because it took me to a better world, a<br />

world of beauty and love. Art is an escape and artists are really escape artists. We live in another world where we don’t need<br />

or want to pay attention to what is going on in today’s craziness. Art brings us hope. And that is why we think that, yes, we will<br />

start a fashion magazine and we can escape into a better world, even if it’s just for a little while.<br />

I started <strong>Breed</strong> Networks LLC because I wanted to educate emerging photographers to enter the fashion photography<br />

industry the right way. We have such loyal and loving members, and it gives me great joy to see their work published in our<br />

magazine. Luca Palmerini, a Lifetime Member, was able to shoot at AltaRoma, a fashion show in Rome dedicated to showcasing<br />

emerging fashion designers. We also have <strong>Breed</strong> Member Ron Beaver in this issue twice, because I applaud his efforts to<br />

really learn and embrace fashion photography, and I’ve actually had the pleasure of working with him and watching his work<br />

grow significantly in such a short time. Babeth Dupuy, from Paris, is the same. Her exuberance and passion toward her craft<br />

have also put her on the fast track of learning.<br />

You see, “<strong>Breed</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong>” tips its hat to fashion photographers who are dedicated, eager and open to learning. And you’re<br />

out there doing it! We honor you and want to pay tribute to you!<br />

When you work hard and your determination shows through, <strong>Breed</strong> recognizes it. To all of the emerging fashion photographers<br />

out there, stick with it! We need your eye, your voice and your vision! And let us here at <strong>Breed</strong> know about you! We<br />

want to see your work! We need to keep seeing beauty in the midst of all this chaos and riots.<br />

ashion Week is just around the corner. Every September a horde of creatives bounces from New York to London to<br />

Milan to Paris to see what creations and trends designers are showcasing, to work on teams for hair or makeup,<br />

photograph the shows or just photograph the fashion giraffes who attend. Working backstage as a photographer, hairstylist<br />

or makeup artist is like a rite of passage in many professional careers. But how does a newbie to the industry get<br />

there, and what is some of the essential etiquette an artist or backstage photographer may need once there? As an artist<br />

who has both assisted and keyed fashion shows in New York, London and Paris, here are some of my top insider tips.<br />

Makeup Artists or Hairstylists Look at past Fashion Week shows to see who the key artists and stylists were (key<br />

meaning the makeup artist or hair person who designed the look and was in charge). Find their Instagram and who their<br />

agent is, then email them—BUT keep your message short and to the point. If you don’t have a website, you better have a<br />

clean and kickass Instagram. Agencies and artists need to see a visual representation of your work. It’s best to hit them up<br />

four to six weeks before the shows. Leave all of your contact details and do not hound them. If they like your work they’ll<br />

get in touch. If you are super-new, let them know. Say you’re willing to clean brushes and carry their kits or fetch coffee.<br />

Make yourself seem indispensable. I learned more by assisting than I did in makeup school. Another option is to see which<br />

brands are sponsoring the shows, such as TRESemme or Maybelline. You can try to contact them directly, as they often<br />

will also be hiring.<br />

If you get booked for a show, realize that many call times are super-early and that you better be on time. A key artist will<br />

demo the look right from the beginning of the show’s call time. Models need to do hair, makeup and nails, plus fittings and<br />

a run-through, in just a few short hours, so every minute is precious. Key artists are busy and won’t appreciate having to go<br />

through everything again for someone who’s late.<br />

Pay attention during the demo. Video it or take notes if you have to. Be aware of not only the products they use but also<br />

what types of brushes they use. If you are really struggling to do something, it’s better to get help from another artist than<br />

to waste time. If waiting for a model backstage, make yourself useful. Clean the area you’re working in or offer to grab<br />

water or drinks. <strong>The</strong>se little things will be noticed.<br />

Social Media Every key artist works differently, so ask before taking any photos. Also, don’t post anything until after<br />

the show’s over—don’t spoil the show! Make sure you use appropriate tags. If you assisted, say that you did the makeup,<br />

but also mention who you assisted and tag that key artist. Tag the designer too. Many backstage areas will list tags and<br />

hashtags to use. If you’re doing an InstaStory or Snapchat, make sure it’s the appropriate time to do it. I once had a bunch<br />

of assistants Snapchatting when the models were lining up just a few minutes before showtime. This is the crunch time for<br />

fixing last looks, not filtering dog ears on yourself!<br />

Photographers Glam teams know you need your shot, but if you see that they are really stressed out working, try not<br />

to butt your way in. Give the artists space or just ask, “Hey, can I grab a shot?” Artists are always happy to get their work<br />

photographed, but it’s better to warn them. Also, be respectful of the girls changing backstage and where your lens is<br />

focusing.<br />

Other tips<br />

• Bring a snack and water. Not all shows have food, and if you’re working back-to-back shows on your feet, it’s important to<br />

keep hydrated.<br />

• Make sure makeup brushes and hairbrushes are clean. Bring something to disinfect and clean them between models.<br />

• And if you are a makeup artist, you MUST have foundations and powders for ALL skin tones, from the palest alabaster to<br />

the darkest shade. If you don’t have a variety of foundations to blend around, you won’t be prepared.<br />

• Wear comfy shoes—you’re working, not hitting the catwalk. You’ll be on your feet and running around.<br />

This Month’s Product Hot List<br />

(A) Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow A gorgeous homage to the golden age of Hollywood, it’s almost too<br />

pretty to use! <strong>The</strong> powders themselves contour and highlight with a beautiful subtlety. <strong>The</strong>y leave the face sculpted and<br />

glowing without looking dirty or overly frosted. ($68, charlottetilbury.com)<br />

(B) Sephora Collection PROfessional Makeup Case Compact yet very roomy. Super-lightweight with removable<br />

compartments. I love this bag, as it holds a lot more than you would expect and is very durable. ($100, sephora.com)<br />

(C) Real Techniques PowderBleu Collection Inspired by the luxurious coats of blue squirrels, these brushes (don’t<br />

worry, they’re cruelty-free and synthetic) feel incredibly luxurious. Real Techniques brushes are awesome for your makeup<br />

kit, blend beautifully and won’t bust your piggy bank. Created by YouTube makeup artist sensations Sam & Nic, aka<br />

Pixiwoo, the brushes even have video tutorials so you can get maximum use out of the tools. (realtechniques.com)<br />

Photography LUCA PALMERINI<br />

TAKE FIVE WITH TYLER LASWELL<br />

Interview by Rachel Toledo<br />

Who are some of your favorite clients?<br />

Chrissy Teigen: She has you laughing the entire time you are working with her.<br />

Allison Janey: She is so calm, cool and collected, and so easy to work with.<br />

Meryl Streep: I grew up a Meryl Streep fan and I will die one.<br />

Tina Fey: I mean, do I even need to explain? Working with her is just like being in a movie with her. She’s never off.<br />

Gabriel Union: Another fun one to be around.<br />

What are some of your favorite products in your hair kit?<br />

TRESemme 24 Hour Body Mousse is the best volume mousse I have ever used.<br />

TRESemme Perfectly Undone hairspray is amazing for creating that undone texture that everyone loves.<br />

TRESemme Freshstart Dry Shampoo is the perfect way to give your hair a refreshed feel.<br />

What are some of your favorite jobs you’ve worked on?<br />

Dolce & Gabbana with Steven Klein. Boys, boys, and more boys ... just saying.<br />

Ralph Lauren with Bruce Weber. Bruce still shoots film and it was so cool to watch him work his magic.<br />

Project Runway with TRESemme. <strong>The</strong> challenges were so much fun and such a great way to test your skills.<br />

What inspires you creatively?<br />

Art is always a great place for inspo.<br />

Makeup. Sometimes if I am on a job and not really feeling the concept or just struggling with writer’s block I will<br />

let the makeup artist go first, and it usually is a great way to get inspired.<br />

Movies are one of my all-time favorite places to find inspiration.<br />

<strong>The</strong> models and celebs themselves are usually a great place to find inspiration. <strong>The</strong>y always have such a unique<br />

point of view.<br />

Music is another place I find inspo. <strong>The</strong> mood of a shoot can really be affected by the music we play.<br />

What are some of the reasons you like being a session hairstylist?<br />

I love to be a part of a team that works together to create a gorgeous image.<br />

I love to see how different we can make the model appear as we change the looks throughout the shoot.<br />

I love meeting new people and building lasting friendships with those who share the same love for the biz as I do.<br />

Every day is a new day and I never feel bored.<br />

I love getting to travel the world and experiencing new and interesting places with my friends.
