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.

3 Editorials for SESSIONS Magazine – January 2012

SESSIONS MAGAZINE

Had a great contact with the magazine to publish 3 of my recent editorials.

“Solo En La Playa” featuring Marisha Shine in a wintery California day

“Jhordan” – Featuring Jhordan Dahl @ M Model Management in a retro street fashion session.

“Bad Girl Traning” – Featuring Mathieu Simo and Erica Catrina and been photographed in London in a cold winter day, but it was warm enough inside to catch a random scene at the END of the shooting day.

Each of the editorials got his own story behind it and a whole different perspective.

Jhordan and Marisha have a short video so look at them bellow!

Special thanks to the Makeup artists, Hair stylists and stylists on this shoots and really appreciate all the people energy, creativity and effort from London to California.

Mathieu Simo, Abida Parveen, Berenice Gallegos, FouFou.

Enjoy the images and please don’t hesitate to contact me for any further question.

Cheers,

Benjo.
