ONE PHOTO – ONE STORY

“During the Wild at Heart photo shoot I was inspired by the seventies – a dreamy-romantic atmosphere with a bit of glamour. This picture with Tessa – one of the models – was the first one from the photo shoot in October, 2019. I was thinking about a fairytale-romantic look, somewhat in the style of Helmut Newton. The hair was styled by Crystal Liz; the make-up was done by Esther Foster; and the styling taken on by Shalev Lavan.

It was very easy to work with Tessa; she moved superbly and showed great poses. It's best when the model moves continuously. Some photographers don't want the model to move at all, but I like it. I prefer to photograph spontaneously, inspired by the emerging movement.

This and all the other sessions for the Wild at Heart series were photographed in Los Angeles, using natural light, and in New York with studio lighting. I use the latter when there is no natural light available, or if I want to create a special look.”
