Officially launched my Youtube Channel!!!!

I finally launched my Youtube channel! I’m so excited to start this journey! I decided to create Youtube channel for a few reasons. Firstly, because I was getting a lot of requests from my Instagram followers to hold workshops. My schedule doesn’t permit that at the moment, so I thought videos could be the next best thing. Secondly, I’ve started to feel like the conversation around body positivity & diversity has become isolated to urban centers, and I want to change that! I want to bring the conversations to you, and create a space where you can be a part of these important shoots, and conversations. So please head over to my channel.. give this a watch/thumbs up/subscribe.

Fashion, Culture, Justice Panel

I was honored to sit on a panel with some incredible women, and discuss race in fashion. I had the pleasure of chatting with Elaine Welteroth (EIC Teen Vogue), Amy Afraid, and Designer Aurora James of Brother Vellies. Thank you Chromat for putting this incredible panel together, and thank you Parson's for hosting us.

Tess Holliday

I popped in to see Tess late the other evening. We caught up,  and shot some beautiful polaroids. This was my first time shooting Tess and it was pretty amazing. Of all the incredible women in my life there are many ways in which I relate most to Tess. I am not a size 14 like man of my friends.. in fact I was a size 14 in middle school. So when it comes to body image, and being fat I identify so much with Tess. After our shoot Tess posted some of the images with a really powerful quote about fat sexuality.. and it really resonated with me. My whole life I was made to feel like I was not desirable, or allowed to be sexual. Boys rarely liked me, and if they did some of them felt the need to be secretive about that fact. Being a fat girl/woman is complicated enough.. but add sexuality into the mix and it's an entirely different story.

Found out last minute Jordyn was in town, so we decided to do a quick polaroid shoot in her hotel room. I've really been loving working on this polaroid project. So much of my work is "crispy" and technically driven. These little polaroids have given me a chance to return to simple image making without pressure, or over thinking. More to come.

Chromat AW17

I loved shooting Leyna Bloom for Chromat AW17. This shoot was my first time meeting Leyna, and she completely amazed me. She comes alive in front of the camera, and isn't afraid to bare her soul for the lens. My favorite part of shooting is the incredible women I get to meet, and connect with. There really is no greater gift then that of having someone who amazes and inspires you, come before  your lens.

Straight/Curve Film

STRAIGHT/CURVE: Redefining Body Image *OFFICIAL EPIX PROMO TRAILER* from Jenny McQuaile on Vimeo.

I'm so excited to share the official trailer for Straight Curve Film (premiering June 21st). I spent the majority of last year with the amazing women working on this film. The project is the culmination of years of work, but also years of struggle and body work with in myself. I feel honored to do the work I do now (in the body positive sphere), and I can't wait to share the film with you.

Chromat AW 16 LUMINA

I had great honor of working with CHROMAT on their AW16 Lookbook. Chromat is (in my opinion) one of the most exciting things happening in fashion. They way Becca McCarren is redefining standards with her use of body diversity (and ethnic, and featuring models with "disabilities"), and the way she is incorporating technology with fashion. It's the future, and it's been pretty amazing to work beside such a supportive and bad ass woman.

Ashley Graham

A peak from my shoot with Ashley Graham.
So proud of all she has accomplished. 
Ashley is a constant reminder hat you can do anything, and that hard work pays off. 
Honored to call you my friend.

Can you spot me?

Here's a throwback to Entertainment Tonight on my shoot with Hayley Hasselhoff for Hey Gorgeous
