FACTICE Magazine, Issue #17 – “My Inner Demons” from Sidney Kraemer on Vimeo.

we put together another well prepared story featuring some amazing designers for Factice Magazine. It’s actually the 3rd time in a row (Since Issue #15) and already planning for Issue #18.

The shoot is mixed with film and digital processing. I attached some outtakes of Large Format Polaroids and 8X10 photographic paper I took during the editorial. I like to shoot with Large Format during these kinds of shoots, because then I have more time to slow down the pace, and focus more on the subject matter instead of all the surrounding pressure. I just get into my own world and start seeing the moment. Sometimes failure happens and sometimes there are happy accidents. Sometimes there are great results without any doubt. Its this journey that never ends and everyday I’m discovering new things by experimenting and making mistakes.

The light was consistant during the entire story; I used a beauty-dish with a diffusion cover as my key, half of my studio door open for the fill. and a back blue gel to add for the palette and the color atmosphere. Later in post I did my own magic by adding more of the ghosty and blurry feeling.

The team effort was great. Jen brought pulled some amazing stuff from several showrooms, and Lina added to the show with variety of skulls and props which added some spice to the story. The model casted was Anastassjia from ELITE Models L.A. It is always pleasure to photograph amazing creative people and strong warriors. Why warriors? Well, it was completely freezing that day, a total of 6 different makeup looks was created, and a definite patience and passion for the story was needed.

Sidney Kraemer made for me a nice feature Behind The Scenes video – Thanks Sid!!!

Paris Retrospective // Film By Keith Lancaster

Paris Retrospective // film by Keith Lancaster from Benjo Arwas on Vimeo.

During my recent trip to Paris, my girlfriend, Sidney Kraemer (http://www.sidneykraemer.com), took a footage of me shooting around the city as well as behind the scenes pieces and Keith Lancaster (http://www.siignal.com) followed me to document my photography ,my thoughts ,and my journey and put it all together to create this video piece. I wasn’t ready and wasn’t prepared, but the best stuff happens when your’e not ready, right?

So thank you Keith for the great opportunity to visually share my thoughts and thank you Sidney for always being there for me.
Thanks to all the teams, creative people and talents: Michelle Catillon, Davide Pereira Palos, Katia Ren, Raquel Crispim, Marianna Giordana, Christine Aimee, Coppelia Pique, Metropolitan Models, and all the other colleges that help and were around from Brooks Institute. PS- the person that sold me the 4X5 in the US, thanks sooo much!

FACTICE Magazine, October 2012. “FALL BLOOMING”

Click here to view -> FACTICE MAGAZINE ISSUE #15

One of my favorite stories i have done so far.

The model’s beauty, used all natural light on location, the featured designers and style,and the large format photography all just merged into a well done story.

The featured designers are The world wide respected French-Canadian couturier Lloyd Klein, Tony Cohen and Monique Conllignon.

All the story has been shoot on 4X5 film and Polaroids, with natural light studio we built outside of my studio. Fun day. The 4×5 camera movements allowed me to play with the plane of focus and to tilt and shift the focus as you can notice in some of the images.

I invited Joe Berhosky (www.joeshoostme.com), an extra ordinary photographer that shooting 8X10 wet plates in collodion process and B&W paper negatives, to create couple of photographs  in his technique and perspective. turned out brilliant and it’s going to be featured in a magazine on upcoming November, i will add the link here and examples as soon as it’s out. Thank you Joe for your participation.

As for the team, Berenice Gallegos, the brilliant makeup and hair stylist played each outfit with a different touch and style for the hair, using flowers and props to add more feeling for the “Blooming” and the color palate. Jordan Swain and Esther Kang made a well done styling pull from Tony and Monique that just fitted into the background and filled the story with great color palate of the complementary colors – green/magenta.

I cast adorable Noora Lappi with the Finish/Nordic bone structure from Pinkerton Models, La / ELITE, NYC to join me again, after working with her before with the team in editorial we shoot in Palm Springs a month earlier. we enjoyed her vibes and her look and really wanted to make another story specific with her.

Sidney Kraemer and Nick Korompilas were my assistants and were running on set building the studio outside and took the 4X5 stress off of me by heading me holders, changing film, loading and marking. well appreciate! Eventually Nick made a behind the scenes video to memorize the day.

Thank you everyone for good times and for the artistic creative vibes.

One Parisian Day With Paolo Wutrich

During my trip to Paris i luckily met a lot of talents and creative people.

One of them was Paolo Wutrich, Original from Brasil (my favorite country), but currently living in Paris and working his way up in the acting scene and commercial modeling.

Michele Catillon, my dear friend and amazing Parisian makeup artist that working at the historical,famous and luxury location called “STUDIO HARCOURT”, introduced him to me and said we must “setup a shoot”. But i don’t like that title “setup a shoot”.

I call it – “Lets meet Paolo, go to drink coffee, hangout in Paris, AND on the way, we will take some pictures.” (PS – just tell him to bring most of his wardrobe 🙂 )

So we met, we had couple of portraits in the studio on 4X5 polaroids that i was inspired by him to create them, because of the moment, the feeling, the vibes and how i saw him as a person.

From the studio, we packed my camera, his clothes and we went up to Sacre-Coeur / Montmartre area the be in an artistic, inspired and great natural light location in Paris.

During our trip we had lots of rain,sun,clouds,wind,sun and more rain. the weird weather of Paris in August. WEIRD.

Of course i couldn’t hold my addiction for film. So i took each outfit on 1 B&W sheet of 4X5 to seal it in my book. Again, just a different way of photography  different feeling, and different interaction with the subject. It’s my happy an addiction.

Im glad Michele introduced me to Paolo. we had to talk about lots of things, industry, art, creativity and life. we ended up drinking good Parisian coffee on the corner, to conclude everything, and to call it a day.

Thank you Michele and Paolo for a great day in Paris.

See you soon,

Benjo.
