Style Captured

Fashion/beauty photographer Ernest Collins showcased just some of his gorgeous work for a select crowd, which included Sophisticate’s Black Hair, during his “Vernissage” exhibit held last night at the Lake Point Towers Gallery in Chicago. Among the beauty industry movers and shakers spotted at the event: Namasté Laboratories’ Deborah B. Smith, Avlon Industries’ William Stewart, celebrity makeup artist/TV host Marcus Geeter, top model Liza Cruzat-Brooks, makeup artist Delisa Lee and hairstylist/platform artist Chris Curse.

A native Chicagoan, Ernest started his career in fashion as a hairstylist and makeup artist for top models and photographers and for many years lived in Paris, France as a photographer. His editorial work has appeared in numerous publications including within the pages of Sophisticate’s Black Hair throughout the years. Back in the Windy City, he continues to create amazing images under the vision of Studio “B” Chicago—a place where the latest fashion and beauty can be discovered in great photography, video service and an expansive fashion research library.
