Once or twice a year, Tom does a collaborative shoot with fashion designer and now Asheville, NC resident, Rachel Weisberg and Miami native actor/model/singer, Carolina Pozo.
Rachel combines the elements of fashion with concerns in production sustainability, emphasizing on local scale practices. The collaboration makes perfect sense: a photographer with minimalist aesthetic and a designer with a minimal footprint. My eyes are drawn to the brass horseshoe. Carolina’s vertebras and back muscles elevate the horseshoe while it gingerly dangles from a thin, gold chain. The ocean blue dress then blends in with a blank wall, Carolina’s umber hair and vivacious tan juxtaposing.
Tom never considered these shoots to be work and I can see why. Tom, Rachel, and Carolina created a beautiful and useful image while in an atmosphere of the ideal work environment.

This week’s photo is from a great shoot in the Wynwood studio with Carolina Pozo (often referred to as Caro). The portrait utilizes a delicate balance of natural and strobe lighting. Our goal was to create realistic and interesting imagery in a simplistic setting and we managed to pull off quite a few looks, each as successful as the last.
Working with Carolina was easy since it wasn’t our first project together… check out the Rachel Weisberg fashion short we collaborated on last year.
You can catch Caro in the new Hulu series South Beach, where her and an all-star (mostly local) cast gives a peek into the Miami music industry.
This video accompanies the look book created by Miami photographer Tom Clark for Rachel Weisberg.
The motion picture reveals Carolina Pozo killing the camera in several looks hand crafted by Rachel. It was captured simultaneously with the still images providing a behind the scenes look at the photo shoot itself from the camera’s perspective. Below are some images from the look book.
