Knoxville, TN Commercial Photographer, Andy Armstrong shares “Redemption” & “Breakdown” Illustrative Series

IMG_4564

A week ago I had the pleasure of working with model, Autumn Livesay on three illustrative series. You’ve probably already seen the “Redneck Summer” series, but we also created “Redemption” and “Breakdown.” Redemption is a modern-day cleansing or baptismal series, and Breakdown focuses on a woman who is fed up and wants rid of all the stress in her life.

Special thanks to makeup artists, Stephen Mee for helping create the look and hone the ideas for these two sets. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot. Click the link below to see all of the images.
