Kylie Turns 18: Ranking our Best Kylie Jenner Shoots



Few people can claim to have accomplished so much before turning 18. Already a fashionista, a TV star, a Balmain model and the #1 most popular person on Snapchat, Kylie Jenner clearly has plenty of momentum heading into adulthood.

The SlickforceStudio team is proud to have played a small part in Kylie’s meteoric rise, as she did her very first professional shoot right here at our studio five years ago. Since then, the younger half of Jenneration K has returned in front of our cameras many times to further grow her brand.

Last month, we asked you to rank our best Kylie Jenner shoots. You voted, and now here are the Top 5. To see the full list (voting remains open), click here.

Click on the titles for more info, full galleries, and behind-the-scenes of the shoots. And if you’re still itching for more Kylie after that, you can view every shoot we’ve ever done together right here.

Wishing Ms. Jenner a very happy 18th birthday and continued success. Drumroll please.

This shoot was not only the first time I photographed both Kendall and Kylie together (aside from the Christmas cards), but it was also shot entirely in 3D. See the final images and the making of this shoot here.

Khloe Kardashian-Odom’s Sexy Black Latex Shoot – Lighting Setup


This summer, I photographed good friend Khloé Kardashian-Odom in super-sexy black latex for a personal project of hers. The shoot was featured in Season 8’s “Life’s a Beach (House)” episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The risqué shoot quickly went viral, and we’ve been overwhelmed with requests from both photographers and Kardashian fans to get a closer look at Khloe’s shoot.

Here are a few of the final shots, some behind-the-scenes images, and a detailed lighting diagram of the setup. Photographers should note the amount of negative fill (4×8 solids) used in the setup—as black latex reflects everything. My thanks to the stunning Khloé for trusting us with such a wild concept, and to the amazing stunt team that rigged the hanging swing and taught our star how to fly!

WMB 3D: Kendall & Kylie Jenner at Ultimate Graveyard

It’s probably the alternator.

In Issue 3 of WMB 3D: World’s Most Beautiful, I brought two of my favorite rising starlets out to Ultimate Graveyard for an apocalyptic shoot-to-remember. Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s fashion feature was styled by the insanely talented Monica Rose, who found the perfect pieces to complement the decaying location.

Here is a backstage look at the making of this shoot, with wonderful production images by photographer Joyce Park. WMB 3D #3 is available now for iPhone, iPad, and on Google Play. And check out the video below for a closer look at the shoot!

Behind the Scenes: Shooting Arthur George for Neiman Marcus

Last week at SlickforceStudio, we photographed the Arthur George designer sock line for Neiman Marcus. Created by Rob Kardashian, Arthur George features wild designs for both guys and girls, ranging from socks to stocking to leggings.

After seeing just how bright and colorful so many of the designs were, I opted for a neutral photography palette to allow the socks to pop. The models did a wonderful job of showcasing the brand, and I give them a lot of credit for proudly conveying a young, energetic label. Having photographed both Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s very first modeling shoots, it is also awesome to witness just how comfortable they have become in front of the camera.

Congratulations to Rob Kardashian and John Burtzloff on producing an amazing campaign. Look for Arthur George at your nearest Neiman Marcus store or visit for more info!

Celebrating a Landmark Year at Kris Jenner’s Christmas Eve Party

Kris Jenner always throws the best Christmas parties, and this year was no exception. Aside from the amazing food and flawless attire, the most enjoyable part for me is watching everyone kick back and have fun for a night.

The Kardashian/Jenner machine is a big one indeed, and their team works incredibly hard to insure smooth running. My thanks to everyone on the K/J team who helped make 2012 a record year for SlickforceStudio, including Noelle Keshishian, Liz Killimond, Jennifer Stith, Sydney Hitchcock, Sheiva Ghasemzadeh, super glam team Monica Rose, Mario Dedivanovic, Rob Scheppy, and Clyde Haygood, and of course the family itself—Kris, Kim, Khloé, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie, Rob, Bruce, Lamar, and Scott.

The SlickforceStudio family is more vibrant than ever, and it is a daily thrill to be able to work amongst such a talented team. Joyce, Kevin, Christian, Scot, Maribel, Kate, Francesca, and Daniel—you are the best!

And last but not least, I want to thank YOU for your support throughout the years. Creating our brand of magic everyday is a dream come true for this team of artists. Happy New Year to all of you, and wishing you a joyous, healthy and prosperous 2013!
