Blonde ambitions

Another oldie, but a goodie

This is a short music video BTS (behind the scenes) style, I made with my muse back when I was studying at EF in Los Angeles. So many fun memories, and what a great model !

Some stills from my video “Bits of LA” that you can watch on YouTube; I edited those pictures on my iPhone using the VSCO app, which has really cute presets and I’m enjoying the feels of this set. Totally missing the beach in Santa Monica & the model here 😛

Bits of Los Angeles…

Taking a trip down Memory Lane

I’ve been feeling nostalgic since my school closed down in LA, and I started to watch some old videos from the time I was studying there & decided to share one of them down below; perhaps I’ll publish more “oldies”…

EF Los Angeles is closing…

My school is closing down

EF Los Angeles

It was a sad day for me when I learned that my school was going to close its doors in March of 2017. We’re now in April, so it’s official and I can’t really shake all the good memories and intense experiences that it made me go through for the first time in my life. I came to the USA to study in this place, and met awesome people along the way; it unexpectedly ended up being the best year of my life.

It’s very emotional for me remembering all of this, but it also feels great to have these memories I can hold onto now that I can never go back to even just say “hi !” to my ex-teachers at the school. Every time I was in LA, I used to go back there for old times’ sake and it was always such a cool thing to be able to do. Walking in the hallway was fun, and something I’ll never forget is that they kept on the wall my class picture from Field Day, when we won 2nd place with my classmates… after 4 years, it was still there.

Inside EF Los Angeles

I was living with a “host family” it was actually a single mom (without her grown-up kids) in the city of Lomita, which is part of the South Bay area of Los Angeles. It was pretty close to my school in Redondo Beach, if you went by car… of course, as everybody knows : I do not drive ! I never got my driver’s license so I had to use public transportation, and I wasn’t aware that apparently only the most ratchet people in LA take the bus. I have so many crazy encounters and insane stories from my times taking the public transit, that my best friend even told me I should write a book about it.

That year spent studying at EF was from day one, an amazing experience. It was literally from day one, unforgettable and full of excitement. It changed my life, it was a once in a lifetime adventure that I feel so blessed to have had. I became a more responsible “adult” because I had to learn how to survive without my family being there for me, and it made me more open to the outside world, as I was putting myself out there to make my dreams come true. I discovered that this is what real life is about.

So, thank you EF for that incredible year and allowing me to become a fuller version of myself, surrounded by friends coming from all over the world that became like a new family. I will not forget everything that you brought into my life, and I wish a good continuation after this to all the teachers & staff.

Fall in deep

Black, White, Flash
Fall in deep

For this photoshoot I experimented with the flash on my Leica for the first time, and it wasn’t as bad as I’d thought it’d be. We went for a sleek look, black and white pictures, I did the makeup; I was really into a big winged eyeliner. I’m definitively gonna keep using the flash for future shoots.

The weather was not on pointmoody AF

But we made it work… new photoshoot available for you guys, with my muse 🙂 more pictures are coming soon, I did not edit everything because I’ve been sick this week & took antibiotics that made me super sleepy. I’m happy with the results of our impromptu shoot, I like that it feels a bit blue and melancholic.
