Emily Sanchez (makeup artist) and The Makeup Imaginarium combine forces for this magnificently visual and absolutely amazing photo shoot. Éventreur (the ripper) weaves a tale of beauty, death and revenge. Stunningly set against the San Joaquin River during the early hours of the morning, this shoot renders a magic that is truly a work of art. Special thanks to the models: Frankee Escobedo, Nikki Richards, Viktoria Paris, Madison Speed, Photographer:Jillian Sara and Designer:Rachel Riggs, for making it all possible.
While flipping through the past year of progress that TMI graduates have made I came across a shoot that was easy, fun and simply beautiful. Model Nikki Richards is always a pleasure to work with and the viewer of the images is often deprived of the fun she brings to the set.
Instructor Rachel Riggs and artist Heather Flores were hard at play for this fabulous set with this wonderful person. Everything fell into to place to capture the images and the was plenty of laughter.
Outstanding work from Heather. Oh what fun to be an artist!!
Graduate Mandy Vang is taking on fashion. She had the chance to work with the amazing talents of photographer Eddie Melikian ,stylist Lauren K.T. Wilson and hairstylists George Garcia and Anna Peters for an editorial in CV Luxury magazine. Together this team created a stunning editorial perfect for the high caliber images that the magazine has been producing since their launch. Congrats Mandy! Keep up the beautiful work. We’re loving it.

This shoot concept was designed by TMI graduate Emily Sanchez. She wanted to showcase the versatility of Sarah’s jewelry. She fused the mechanics of Steam Punk with the vibrant edginess of Punk. She brought fellow graduate Rainbow Chatman and instructors Becky Williams-Gomez and Rachel Riggs to make her vision come to life.
Sarah Rhames, the creative genius behind Royally Spoiled, custom designed the pieces for this shoot and lucky us at TMI got to watch her in action!

An outstanding start for new students Genevie Flores and MariHernandez . These two conceptualized, planned and executed an editorial set in their second week of school. Congrats ladies!! Thanks to some fabulous models: Jewel Knapp, Maddy Little, Kristy Ly, Nikki Richards, Dani Nicole Glenn and Bethany Maddox. You ladies rocked it!!
Had a great time with model Jewel Knapp. She is a trooper. We headed down to the river for some intense heat, biting bugs, nettles and other nefarious things and yet still managed to have a great time. We were after that magical feeling that can happen on a journey through the woods.
T.M.I. would like to showcase in house model Maddy Little for her great skill as a model and her wonderful personality. She is always a pleasure to work with. This shoot was held in the freezing cold and she managed not only to look calm and relaxed but to hide the goosebumps.
