A throwback set w/ Quyhn

Recently I’ve been going through all my old hard drives archiving photos from the past years. And I had a little idea to do a series of like throwback posts. First reason is because it can be kind of fun going back and looking at your progression(if any) and it’s just kind of nostalgic.
This set is actually the first time I got to work with Quyhn. I drove out to Spring on an invite to shoot and hang with another Houston photographer whose studio at the time was there. Me and Quyhn had wanted to shoot together for a pretty good while before this, but schedules kept getting in the way. Luckily we happened to be at the studio on the same day! And I think the results were pretty epic.

Quyhn brought an awesome lingerie set to shoot in and with the dressing room/make up room I wanted to go for a bus getting ready type of vibe.

The studio was actually located in this business park that had a speed and body shop right next door. So there was a old stripped out hot rod that we just had to shoot next to.

It’s pretty interesting looking back on old photos and remembering my thought process as I made them. How I searched for intriguing angles and ways to photograph Quyhn with the car. For example shooting through the window like in the shot above.

I think I may have been a little more creative back in the day. lol
No, but seriously. A lot of it does come down to Quyhn just being awesome. The few times we’ve shot together have produced epic photos that are some of my favorites I’ve ever taken. I’m thinking of doing more of these archive/ throwback posts. Let me know what you guys think. I have hard drives full of old shoots.
And be sure to follow Quyhn on IG @_moonchildrose_ and for more of my work follow me @corychrry

Something different. Bay area archives

Contrary to what many may think or what a majority of my content may show, I love all aspects of photography. I don’t get the opportunity to shoot too many different things due to work etc. but I thought I’d go back a few years and share some photos from when I got to go on a west coast tour with The Turnaways (follow them on IG: @turnaways and follow them on spotify as well). During their tour they played a good number of cities including, San Antonio, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, Oakland, and San Fransico. It was also honestly one of the highlights of my photographic career.
So for this post I thought I’d start off right in the thick of the Tour by showcasing photos from our time in Oakland. We had a couple of days off in the bay area so a lot of the photos are from down time etc. But after longs hours in a van you quickly appreciate getting o stretch your legs whenever you can.

After a quick stop in Broken Guitar we went down the street to check out 1-2-3-4 Go Records. Since sadly, now physical record shops are so rare these days. I’m not gonna lie… there’s something super nostalgic about being able to physically look through records and instantly be reminded of an artist or a certain album… but I digress.

After the record shop we needed a bit of a pick me up so of course when we spotted a little coffee shop we had to head over. The name of the shop was Subrosa Coffee and the dude working there was super friendly and knew his coffee. Little known about me… I love coffee, so if you ever want to get me to open up to you all you need do is talk about coffee, cars and cameras lol.

I’d honestly love to just visit a bunch of indepent coffee shops and just document them.

That night the guys had a show at a club in Downtown Oakland called the Golden Bull. Clubs are always a challenge to shoot in because they lighting is hardly ever ideal for taking photos. But the challenge is always the fun part.

It’s always difficult to get the drummer in a club, cause they’re usually at the back… in the total dark.

For the last couple photos I’ll just share a couple pics from the next day where we just sort of hung around before heading to the next city. We visited another coffee shop, Timeless coffee and the coffee and atmosphere were A-1!!! And of course a big thank you to both shops we visited while in Oakland For being cool with me taking a couple photos with my big camera while we were there. Nothing intrusive, but you’d be surprised how many places don’t like a photo being taken with a dslr.

That will wrap up this post. And I hope you enjoyed the photos! I love to travel even if I don’t get many opportunities to do so. Looking forward to more travels in the future, and going to make a couple more posts from this tour. Mostly more music photos to come as well as stories. Stay well!

Hailey Beth pt 2

Back again with another photo set! For this set with Hailey I’m going to go ahead and smoosh two outfits into one posts. Literally from day to night. For the first outfit Hailey had a Yellow bikini that I just knew had to be shot out on the balcony of the apartment. Which is a testament to the bipolarness of Houston weather considering this was like winter time.

As the day transitioned to night time, and the rain started coming down we moved inside. and with that Hailey changed into a more indoorsy look. And per common theme with my work there’s quite a bit of reflections in this set as there was a huge mirror in the apartment… which I had no choice but to use.

I wasn’t kidding when I said it was a huge mirror

I hope you enjoyed this set as much as I enjoyed shooting and creating with Hailey. And I hope to keep up with this blog and creating new content to share. And as always don’t forget to follow Hailey @haileybeth on IG if you’re not already! Til next time guys!

MoonchildRose pt.2

Continuing with at least one new post a week, I give you another look with the gorgeous Quyhn! We were fortunate to have the use of a kitchen with a lot of natural light. So she brought a white outfit that flowed perfectly with the setting. I’ve probably said it a thousand times but I am a huge fan of simplicity, so when she showed me the outfit I knew it was going to work out perfectly! And of course now Valentines day has come and gone, but this is only the second look of three that I’ll be sharing from our shoot. And I also had two other shoots leading up to Valentines Day. So with that said I hope you’re enjoying the content so far and I’m looking forward to creating even more content in the future!

I can’t state enough just how much I love natural light. Of course there are times when you have to for lack of a better term create your light. But when it’s there… use it! And luckily where we shot had plenty of natural light coming in form big windows, and had bright cabinets and counter tops that bounced and reflected the light beautifully.
