This is a completely new type of post for me…
I’ve never done this before, since usually when I shoot street style my focus is not on WHO I’m shooting but it’s more about WHAT catches my eye, and anything that inspires me.
Having said that, I cannot deny that there are certain subjects that usually inspire me more… let’s say they have become my sort of “street style muses” that I always look forward to photographing.
Usually it’s girls that show confidence, like to experiment with fashion and have a great disposition to play along the street style game… meaning that they will be kind enough to try to listen to all of the photographers directions in order to allow everyone to get a good shot.
Some of my “muses” include, Anna dello Russo, Chiara Ferragni, Elisa Nalin, Elena Perminova and of course (the star of this post) Kristina Bazan… it is just such a pleasure to photograph these girls!
So the day I went to shoot the street style at Elie Saab’s show, I was so sick and it was raining so much, that after 20 minutes there I considered leaving cause I just couldn’t take it anymore, and to be honest I felt like my performance wasn’t great… but then I’m so glad I didn’t because Kristina arrived and I got a little boost of motivation and so I photographed her.
Of course, it was so unexpected to me that feeling the way I was feeling I managed to get even one decent shot, but then I got more than one! And the amazing thing was that I posted my favorite of them all and Kristina liked it enough to regram it! (btw thanks for that K!)
Then, while I was working on these photos, I just found them so pretty I thought it would be a shame not to share them.
I’m not trying to toot my own horn; honestly it was just luck that everything fell so perfectly together. K’s outfit which was all white with her golden hair just matched beautifully with the background, and her being so pretty and charismatic just helped everything fall into place leading to breathtaking pictures.
In the end, I felt like these photos deserved a post on their own… and so here they are, I hope you like them as much as I do!
