This shoot I did with actress/model Irina Cojocaru was the first of my summer collaborations and I can’t thank her enough for taking the time to do it. This shoot was couple of days after I was stood up (by a spoiled and childish wannabe “designer”) after paying for studio time and taking time off specially for the shoot so my expectations were very low and my mind was almost made up about not doing anymore collaborations.
But this shoot was already set and I did not wanted to go back on my word. Irina changed my mind about everything I was feeling at the time, not just by being a great model, getting beautiful pictures and perfect shots in a matter of minutes! The weather was on our side. Therefore the photos have this sunshine feel coming through, that matches the vibe of the shoot brilliantly!
But I’m also thankful for just meeting a decent human being again. Before this shoot I was having bad experience after bad experience with people and it was draining me creatively. But not just that. She is a lovely person and very smart! She knew exactly what she was doing, and it was definitely a breath of fresh air for me.
And to make things even better a lot of the pics looks like film!! I am so so happy with this shoot it was a perfect pick me up! So Thank you Irina Cojocaru for the opportunity to work with you! You are a gorgeous person inside and out!
