I'm here to find a few new teams of superior talent to help grow my book and build my network. I am in the unique position of having an extensive designer wardrobe to pull from (think Dior , Posen, Cavalli, Versace etc).
I have over 15 years of experience in the fashion industry as a buyer , merchandiser, and stylist to an elite clientele. I am looking to transition to a stronger focus on commercial and editorial styling.
I love the art of fashion & styling equally , and hope to work with people who share my passion for the process. While i'm blessed with a designer wardrobe , I'm no label whore. I cherish a garment's beauty bc of the craftsmanship / design that went into it , not bc it happens to be Dior. I'm generally attracted to contrast, the unexpected , femininity, a darker edge, and a certain bold / tough / badass element.
I prefer to work with agency models, but if you are agency material, then by all means get in touch. I'm interested in editorial / tears / and paid gigs. If you would like to work together , and I don't feel that the shoot will benefit my book, Ill respond with a big sympathetic hug and offer you my rates ;P
I truly believe , that especially while testing, every team member should be valued and respected for the mastery of their craft. I chose to work with you , bc i believe in your work , and I expect you feel the same about mine. While I expect and welcome compromise and experimenting , at the end of the day, I expect to have the creative freedom to pursue my vision. If there's something you want to try , no worries , let's just make sure we get both of our ideas on film [/digital :]. I respect your creative license as a photographer , and I expect the same from you. For this reason , I've made it my policy to be the sole provider of wardrobe. If there are extenuating circumstances by all means, let's discuss.
I've found that's it's best to be upfront about our expectations and get on the same page from the beginning. By taking this route , my experience is that most of my shoots have exceeded my expectations, resulting in gorgeous cohesive images. All business aside , I'm easy and fun to work with, so let's get er done!! ;]
Looking forward to hearing from you.
