I started working for Apple a couple months back and met this incredible person there; she's super nice and generous, has this good aura about her and I really wanted to take some pictures using this old film-style editing. She's also an actress & very independant, which is why I admire her so much !
I went to Zurich a couple weeks ago to see my best friend and we shot a bunch of photoshoots together – she modeled for me. This was an inspired look from the burlesque era. She was pretty thrilled with the results so I hope you’re gonna like the idea as much as she did, took me a while to edit this set but with much excitement 🙂 I also did her makeup.
I must have taken a million pictures that day… beginnings are always challenging because you have to adjust to these little things you’ve not been used to yet. Which is probably why I shot so many photos that day, I was trying to learn how to represent my model in her best light, just as she was trying to find the right poses for the camera etc.
Another set from the photoshoot at the botanical garden with my new model; I used a B&W film pack for the effect. It was so warm inside, but we still had a lot of fun… these are definitively my fave from the whole shoot. I have a thing for monochrome photography but also, the portraits here feel more genuine and natural. It’s like catching a moment in time kind of unexpectedly.
I love going to the Louvre, it is my favorite museum in Paris. It offers so many paintings and sculptures, and an amazing architecture. It’s the perfect place to ease my mind surrounded by the inspiring artworks of masters.
My beautiful muse 🙂
I decided to make a music video with my favorite model, without her wearing any makeup as to promote natural beauty. I thought it was nice of her to agree to be filmed because I know a lot of girls are self-conscious about being seen like this, but it’s important to learn to love yourself just the way you are : blemishes don’t matter, we’re beautiful and perfect, so screw what society & ill-intentioned people tell us !
