JS: Where did the inspiration for the story come from?

MO: The Mad Max concept happened organically.  Elliston found the amazing location, then the story line just spun from there. The Inspiration for the shoot was the movie Mad Max.  I had mentioned to Elliston once we got the go ahead with the location, that I did not want the fashion featured in the shoot to be the typical expected clothing you would see on a beach, for example, swim suits etc, and Elliston completely agreed.  The Mad Max theme came to my mind, to describe the Fashion Direction and then it was like yea, Let’s Do Mad Max!!

JS: Where is the story shot?

MO: The location is on Dune Road in South Hampton NY.

JS: Have you worked with Elliston before?

MO: I have been working with Elliston for quite some time, around three years now and it is always Magic.

JS: Which shoot has been your most favourite when working with Elliston?

MO: I think my favourite shoot to date with Elliston, is this shoot.  I style many in-studio shoots when working with Eliiston and not that many outdoor shoots, so this was so much fun and the most Magical.
