Based in Los Angeles, Courtney Dailey leads teams of beauty experts creating images from prep to post. Known for her use of colour, she delivers imagery that is dramatic and confident. She feels all images should communicate concepts, stories or evoke feelings.
Starting her career in Michigan as a make-up artist, Courtney has always believed photography and make-up should have no rules. "They are a combination of imagination, creation, and practiced technique." This point of view has allowed her to see beauty from all perspectives.
Receiving her B.A. in Communications from Oakland University, she has the ability to help her clients oversee projects from concept through to creation and post-production. Courtney is in the process of "greening" her studio and is one of the few photographers who can offer eco-friendly shooting options. Sites like Womens Health, The Huffington Post and The Daily Green have featured her work for her participation in the green fashion community.
Since her arrival in Los Angeles, Courtney has shot for numerous international magazines, campaigns and celebrities. She was recently published in Cosmo, Allure, Elle, Vanidades, and was chosen as one of FJ Westcott Lighting’s “Top 50 Professionals”. Clients include Schwarzkopf, Elle, Cosmo (Vietnam/Mexico), Allure, Women's Health, Vanidades, Temptu Cosmetics, DeMarco Diamonds, University Medical, Skin MD, Chrome Girl and Rejuvasea.
