The first time I saw Isamar Gonzalez was 12 years ago in  Heavy d's Nuttin' But Luv music video and again in Sweet Honey by Born Jamericans. It was  my first time seeing "real" models in videos and I thought she was goooorgeous. She was the black girl with "the big hair." I never thought in a million years I would have had the opportunity to meet and work with her.

She sought me out thru the networking site Facebook to assist me on a few of my photoshoots. I was so nervous that i wouldn't respond. One day I came home from work and got on Facebook and she hit me on the chat asking me when was I gonna call her...... I honestly didn't know how to pronounce her name and I didn't want to butcher it plus I was kinda afraid to meet someone I actually use to draw when I was in college. She told me to "call now!" and try....so I did. We instantly hit it off and set up a session.

I was a little nervous and intimidated to shoot her in my cramped little space. Supermodel Isamar has worked with some of the most amazing photographers and fashion icons in the world. I was hoping that experience of working with me would equal her expectations. She made me comfortable and feel just as relevant and special as those photographers i grew up admiring. Being in NYC and not having access to space, clothes and connections has heightened my insecurity and has made me lose confidence in my work and abilites, but working with Isamar made me feel so inspiring and proud. I love the images we created and look forward to working with her on more projects.

She looks as amazing as she did when she first started modeling at 17 and was wonderful to work with and I think I captured her energy and spirit perfectly......

People always have something to say. One of the things most of them seem to say about my work is that it is artistic. Many feel it is too artistic to be considered fashion photography. I  want to know if my work is considered to artistic to be fashion, then what exactly is fashion photography and it is fashion today considered art? I decided to do a photo series that paid tribute to fashion involving body paint. Omar Kennedy of Boss Models and Next Miami caught the China bus from Boston to shoot with me. He booked a job in Boston and got the bus as soon as it was done. He arrived in Brooklyn at almost midnight.

BTS(behind-the-scenes):


I was inspired partly by the Louis Vuitton/ Stephen Sprouse "graffiti" print and the body paintings artist Keith Herring. model and friend Shyloh Wilkerson stopped by to help and finally meet her facebook friend model Omar Kennedy.

I met Marybeth Dupain during one of my visits to NYC back in 2006. I did a test shoot with her when she was starting out. Since then both of us have developed to be much better than our begining work. She has done worked for Abercrombie and Sephora and other clients all over the world. I was happy to have her return to the front of my lens ....... she is gorgeous and I really enjoy working with her and look forward to a continued working relationship. Its amazing when a model can step in front of a camera with no makeup, no elaborate hair, and no designer clothing and still produce beautiful images....

HOT NEW FACE: ROB EVANS @ Major Model Mgmt.

5 comments:

Two months ago, the last thing Rob Evans was thinking about was modeling let alone creating a sensation walking the Givenchy Spring/ Sumer 2011 Men's show in Paris. He was in Oxford, UK training at his local boxing gym maintain his amazing 6'3 physique. So far modeling has allowed him to walk in shows in Paris and an already impressive collection of magazine editorial work .

He's in the Big Apple ready for NY fashion week. Not being the ideal showroom size hasn't discouraged Rob or made him feel the need to starve to death and comform to the industry current skinny boy standard - he's opt'd to be the exception..... actual man size. Everyone was telling me "he's huge" or "all you really can do with him is underwear stuff." I set out to prove otherwise. 

When Rob arrived to my place in Brooklyn, I decided to untilize my "MacGuyver" skills. I took him to one of those Fulton street fabric stores and bought some black wool and decided to construct him a cocoon coat. This beautiful hooded cacoon is featured in the selection of images in this post entitled THE DARK KNIGHT. I also got more amazing fashionably stylish images coming soon. ROB EVANS IS A SUPERSTAR.....mark my words. :)

From the first moment I saw Remi Alade Chester, I knew I wanted to photograph those perfectly chiseled ebony cheekbones. I contacted his mother agent  Graham Edwards from Gadal Model Management in Barbados to set things up the next time Remi was in NYC. His face is majestic and his body is perfection - his personality was icing on the cake.... excellent to work with. I enjoyed working with Remi and I look forward to working with him again.

introducing model/ actor EVANDER HOLYFIELD JR.

No comments:
I recently had the pleasure to work with model/ actor Evander Holyfield Jr. (the son of boxing great Evander Holyfield) I met him a few years ago via Internet. We kept in touch. He recently moved to New York for an internship and to further pursue his modeling and acting career and we finally got him up in here to shoot w/ me.

After the shoot we looked through the images, the biggest smile came over his face... he was so happy and that made me feel good. Shooting him made me realize the power imagery has in making people feel good about themselves. I make people beautiful..... that makes me feel good about what I am doing.
