Tommy Vitaly

Posted in Personal with tags , , , on May 31, 2009 by Tallee Savage

My friend Tommy came to Sweden from Italy, with his lovely girlfriend Elena, to take som professional pictures for his new album. So I teamed up with JenHell to do the photoshoot and Mattias to do the graphics. Worked all day making great pictures and then we all felt we deserved a couple of cold beers. So we headed towards Club Rocks and did some serious party mingleling. After closing time we went to another rock club called Heavens gate, in the “fashionable” parts of Stockholm.

I would like for everyone to keep Tommy’s name in mind. He is a classical skillled guitar player. An awesome musician with masterly ability and technique. And mind you… he is an excellent piano player as well.

He playes with the italian power metal band “Seven Gates” and the duo “Vitaly”. And is now recording his own neo-classical/ power  metal Cd with guest mucisians like Rhino (Manowar), Tomas Wikström (Covered Call, Therion) amongst others.

To get an idea of his playing just listen to this – Jihhooooo schredding away!!!

I love Purple

Posted in Make Up - Savage Beauty, Model 40 with tags , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2009 by Tallee Savage

I have had a very special bond to this color for about 25 years now as I feel this is my color. Seriously… I see someone wearing a purple outfit and I think, “why is that person wearing my color”? Ha ha ha ha.  I just love the range of colors occurring between red and blue.

The word purple is from the old english word purpur which originates from the latin word purpura. The color is associated with royalty, spirituality and nobility in many cultures, because there was a time when only very wealthy people could afford it. It became an imperial color. Also it has a sacred place in nature; lavender, orchid, lilac and violet flowers are very precious. If you’re into Feng Shui though, use it sparingly since it is a high vibration color.

Now… some people have a disagreement over what is exactly the right shade to be described as PURPLE. Some people even have tried to have this argument with me… which is quite impossible, since I consider myself an expert on purple ; ) Of course there are also different sensitivities to red and blue light between people, causing more disagreement. We also have more precise terms such as heliotrope, violet, indigo. But I do sometimes hear people referring some pink tints or more burgundy tints to purple. I always have a comment on that.

Anyway, here are some photo sessions I have done with purple in the past. Oh, did I mention that Deep Purple is one of my favorite bands, besides Rainbow of course, and that amethyst is my favorite quartz (Crystal) in jewelry.

When I see purple I get enchanted and I feel happy. I like other colors, but no other color have had this effect on me for so so many years.

Jenny and I took a trip to Huddinge to visit a splendid fashion photographer, Andreas Harnemo. Check out his webbpage here: Good stuff there. He is currently living in Paris.  But I hope he comes back soon… he owes me one more session ; )  My friend Jenny is not only excellent behind the camera, here she is infront of it.

Aurora goes Asia

Posted in Make Up - Savage Beauty with tags , , , , , on May 22, 2009 by Tallee Savage

I had an idea for styling on Aurora (Linn) that I thought would look good on her. Something very Asian stylish. So we all met in Jen’s studio and made a nice little project. This model is very easy to work with. Pretty much everything looks good on her and I know Jen mentioned that the retouch of the pics was very sparse. Great girl to work with.

The Core and Chick Elle Boutique (Drottninggatan Stockholm) arranged a Burlesque/underwear show. I was there working with the make up on some models. JenHell was there with her Camera, documenting the evening.

Burlesque is a humorous theatrical entertainment involving parody and sometimes grotesque exaggeration. In 20th century America, the form became associated with a variety show in which striptease is the chief attraction.

I felt very “at home” with this look, I must say. Not the clothing so much, I mean being an indian : )

Very moved by the movie, Soldier Blue, that I saw in my early teenage years. A very sad, but good movie. One that stays in your mind for ever.

Pictures are taken by photographer Göran Magnusson in Mariannelund in Småland. A workshop for photographers, models, make up artist and graphic designers.

Made a total of four photosessions.
