Often it is by coincidence, when we discover a photo or a group of photos out of a session. It is the same with this shoot of Justin Bonaparte, a photographer from Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. Streetfashion MagZZine featured him this year in April. Since then we follow him on Flickr and so discovered this interesting shoot with model Brianna Swing. We spontaneously decided to share it with you and asked Justin to tell us the story of this shoot. Here it is together with several of the photos:
We met near the center of Charlotte, and my 11 year old daughter tagged along (mostly just to get away from her brothers and sister for a while). I told her that if she came, I was going to put her to work, so she carried equipment and VALed for me, as well as peppering me with questions about what was going on uptown. She did a great job, though.
We spent about two hours shooting, then packed it up and said our goodbyes when the sun finally set. Bree is a total sweetheart, and really does well posing her hands and arms about her body, something many models struggle with. Hopefully we'll get to shoot again soon!"
Thank you Justin for allowing us to share the photos and especially for the intersting story around this shoot.
