RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars

Life can be a drag at times...literally.  Earlier this week I had the distinct pleasure of being featured on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars as the challenge photographer.  I have been working behind the scenes since the show started and it was finally nice to be in front of the camera.  The Queens were a blast to shoot!  Each of them has a really distinct and unique personality.  The first photo challenge (Half Baked) was incredibly interesting because the Queens could only do half of their makeup for the shoot.  It revealed a lot more of their personality out of drag and stripped them down to their rawest form.  They poured out an ample amount of sensitivity in the images that captured a lot of their inner beauty.

The second photo challenge was incredible!  The crew at World of Wonder had created a set with black and white boxes (opposites attract) and then rigged rain spouts above the set to spray the queens with either clear or black water.  The Queens had a few minutes to move around the set and pose together.  It yielded some results that were funny as hell as their makeup and hair began to melt!  I mean, how do you look fabulous in the rain?!

A special thanks to Mathu Andersen, Logo, World of Wonder and of course RuPaul for the opportunity to be a part of this.  I hope to be back next season!
