Shooting an urban fantasy ebook cover


A few weekends back I did a photo shoot for my urban fantasy ebook cover. I had my photographer shoot plenty of images so I’d have not only what I needed for the covers, but for promotional materials and future covers.

Mad shout out to Harry Wilkins Photography for capturing the images.

Above you’ll see me in a vampire assassin sandwich.

Actress and model Danielle Miller (right) took on the role of Adriana Dupre, vampire assassin and main character in the “Shadowdance” saga. She’s also an avid cosplayer, with a portfolio on her Danielle DC Facebook page.

Sabrina Cline (left) portrayed Adriana’s sister Dominique. She’s been at the modeling game for nine years in both runway and promotional. See her portfolio over at Model Mayhem.

Jeptha Lee at Trinity MU Designs provided the hair and make up for both ladies, enhancing their already great looks without losing sight of the menacing vampires lurking underneath. He also helped us with some weapon handling technique. Check out more of his work on Instagram.

Special thanks to Urban Pixel Studios for the use of their space.

All in, it was a four-hour day of nothing but fun as we captured the visual feel of the “Shadowdance” action/ urban fantasy saga, jamming out to the YouTube “Songs that Inspire the Shadowdance” playlist.

More images will slowly appear on the character pages on this site (linked above) and throughout Twitter and Facebook. Stay tuned for more info on when you’ll see the new urban fantasy ebook cover and other content continuing the “Shadowdance” saga.

Again, many thanks to all involved.
