The Team

Welcome! I’ve added this page so you can get a bit of an introduction to the faces you may see at Devilbliss Studios.

Michael Bann aka Victor Devilbliss
I have been engaged in professional photography for over 30 years now. While my beginnings were in the music and events fields I have been immersed in Boudoir, Pinup and Glamour Photography for easily a dozen years. Over the past 3 years I have done over 1000 such sessions. It’s safe to say I know a thing or two about it. As easily 50% of those sessions have been with repeat clients (many people only do one session) I also like to think the quality and experience I strive to provide is appreciated.

The Stylists
These are the artists I work with regularly and who may be tasked for your session. Selection is based on schedule availability, proximity to the session and client request.

Claire Marie of Neon Lady Artistry
Claire Marie is another long time collaborator with a wide array of experiences. Claire is employed in the beauty and hair profession full time and assists at Devilbliss Studios more and more.  Visit her Facebook Page here. Claire Marie is available for Makeup and Hair as scheduling permits.

Ruby Von Vanity
I have worked with Ruby as a model on many occasions. I’ve also been privy to  sessions where she has performed styling for others and have added her to my list of available artists as I have great confidence in her abilities. Ruby is available for Makeup and Hair as scheduling permits.

Lizz Maldonado
Lizz or Stylish Lizzard as she is also known, is a full time hair professional. Her color work is near legendary with Devilbliss clients traveling regularly from New York City for her talents. Lizz will be available for Hair styling as scheduling permits. Just to show how much of a family this is, I once photographed the morning prep of a friend’s wedding, I captured the bride and her ladies getting ready prior to the ceremony. The team doing Makeup and Hair was Nicole Zedonek who had hired Claire Marie and Lizz to assist her.

Millie Mie
Millie is another industry professional I’ve worked with as a model but have been incredibly impressed with samples I’ve seen by her from weddings she’s lent her artistry to. In fact you really should visit her amazing website at Watch for some upcoming in-studio events with her, Lizz and myself. Millie is available for Makeup as scheduling permits.

Kendra Foltin
Kendra graduated from Empire Beauty School in 2011. She’s worked at the boutique salon Heaven and Earth in Pottsville just up the street from Devilbliss Studios for 6 years and has amassed a loyal clientele, in fact, she often cuts my own hair! She specializes in Aveda Color. She has taken Oribe Styling Classes in Boston and New York city.  She love’s updos and being creative. I have alot of color as well as makeup classes with Aveda. Her favorite is boho styling but is versatile with anything. Kendra does a lot of bridal updos and lots of color.  Kendra is available for boudoir and contemporary styles as scheduling permits.

Shannon Caligiuri of Shannon June-Stylist
Shannon is based out of Hamburg New York. Very near Buffalo. I had only one opportunity to work with her but I was immediately impressed. First her quality of craft was top notch. Next her professionalism was as good as it gets and her personality was very welcoming. She SERVES her clients. I do hope to work with her again but if you are in that area of New York state and need a stylist look her up. She’s worth every penny. Find her on Facebook here. And her website here.
