👑👑👑Importance of proper casting team and models.💎💎💎
When I was starting out, probably 12 years ago, I was hoping there was a part of production that could be neglected; something I could take out of equation to make process simpler, or prep time faster. Was it the hair that I could not have styled? Or wardrobe? Or model? Somehow makeup was never a question 😂😂😂.
Through trial an error (mostly error) I realized that work looks only as good as its separate elements. You can't leave a stone unturned if you are aiming to create work worth looking at.
Team, just like model, needs to be picked out for individual project. We all have our strengths and personal style, and that's what supposed to shine in each particular concept. I have a range of makeup artists working in different techniques and styles, whose skills I can count on for particular job. Same applies to hairstylists and wardrobe stylists, prop and set designers, even assistants.
Model is the centerpiece of the shoot, serves as canvas and makes or breaks the idea/concept. This is why I am very particular about my models. As you can see I rarely go for a "beauty queen" type, I look for unique unforgettable faces. Faces that express character, personality, charisma... every single time implementation of the idea is being adjusted to model I cast. Model is being a projection/embodiment of the concept itself and she needs to look as natural as possible in very unnatural environment.

Hiii you guys!! ❤️ I just wanted to get on here to share with you my heart on life recently. In October I moved to Cali and it’s been a dream! It’s not what you would think as to why I moved for a season but I moved because I felt the Lord strongly telling me to work along side a Christian college ministry in Huntington Beach California! I am here to tell you, it’s such a sweet feeling walking into the promise and faithfulness of the Lord. I have been learning what it means to rest truly. Running a full time photography business is challenging but it’s so glorious. I wouldn’t take anything back for the world. The Lord 100% has blessed me with working in the fashion industry and it just blows me away! This season has been so refreshing and a lot of traveling in the spring to come going all over America bringing the gospel to college campuses. I know, I know, it’s not normal to drop your business for 9 months but hey life is fun with Jesus! There is a lot that I want to do in my business so I want you to know, I am not going anywhere. Every season is different and this season for me is all about rest. God is amazing and I am so blessed by all the support you guys have given me! I mean it! You rock!! Loads of love from me to you!!! ❤️❤️ // Editorial shoot for @arquetteagency of @jacobuhz_witness @josh_c_crawford
