“Rouge -a playfully mischievous person. I wanted to capture Vicki in a different setting than what she has shot before something raw and rebellious. And she fell right into character the shots and video told a story that anyone will be able to comprehend. Most of my inspiration comes from music, and I try my best to put the feeling I get from it into my work. I hope it shows.“
On the set of Rogue, I was able to fall into my zone. It’s been a while since I had a photoshoot and as soon as the finishing touches were complete, I fell into my character. Meeting the other artists, Candice and Rocky (MUA & hairstylist), for the first time I loved their vibes very peaceful but yet very spunky. They kept the laughter going and made every moment a sensation. Working in front of the photographer, Charles, is always a pleasure. Once my character was created the hunt was on. In 100 degree weather, in leather, I was able to deliver.
-Vicki Valencourt (Model)
My experience working with Ms. Vicki Valencourt on set was phenomenal to say the least. It was a very creative one. Charles Thomas(mr.creatistic himself ) is a very unique photographer. He finds locations beyond your beliefs to create something out of nothing.His photography turns swamp water into blue oceans. A field of ragweed and wilted daisy’s into a blossoming flower patch, and a deserted parking area into a models playground. Of course without an openminded and creative model this could not work, and that is where Ms. Vicki showed her true colors. A model so motivated and comfortable with her surroundings. She worked the camera like never before. It was so liberating for me as a professional hairstylist so see such energy. I’ve worked with so many different models and not all are the same. Each one has there own energy. Some more than others. Vicki has her own style about her. She stands in front of the camera and…….Work! This shoot was raw, yet tasteful. Edgy,yet subtle ,and playfully mischievous. Something I have to experience once again!
-Crimsom Hair (Hair Stylist)
My contribution in creating “Rogue” was the styling of Vicki. I was very much in my element as I created this dark, yet sexy ensemble of leather, spiky rings and pretty silhouettes. We caused quite a scene as we shot in the hot Chicago weather and I kept hydrated as I made small alterations and primping during the set. Working with model, Vicki, photographer Charles Thomas and the rest of the crew was a fun and daring experience!
