LATENIGHT WALK

… The wet pavement was pitch black and invited me for a walk in that late hour of the night. The air was fresh and I saw no reason t0 inhale and exhale calmly as I strolled downtown in this city. After carefully measuring my steps visually on the sidewalk and listening to the peculiar sound of the shoes made hitting the ground in my lazy walk, I was forced to raise my head due to a bizarre voice coming behind my shoulders… But nobody was behind me… “This is strange”, I said to myself while I scouted the dark street adorned with lots of colorful window showcasing well-known and less-known brands, as well as designer’s collection on various faceless mannequins of uncertain gender… These silent dummies wearing proudly elegant garments were gazing upon my unshaved face as I walked by the shop windows and were spitting from their inanimate heads words, sentences, occasionally even comprehensible phrases… I felt uneasy to shoot them. Yet… I know that to some of you, they might speak just as loud and clear as to me, these silent witnesses of the city life, who change their outfit or even outlook by the season, hear and see us humans walking by… and remain still, almost painfully lifeless before our daily thoughts…  They just never age, never need to see a doctor or never fall in love. Next time, please do stare into their frozen faces…who knows, you might feel something uplifting… you might even feel lucky… to be alive. But we both know, dear reader… being alive and LIVE are two different stories… Indeed.

FOUR NON BLONDES – TFCD

Well, this shooting took place quite some time ago, I must admit. After meeting with Florina who put up a personal collection of dresses and wanted to be photographed in a creative way, I took up the challenge to make some sort of story of this shooting. Me and my light assistant, Claudiu, went to Cluj prepared with some ideas based on some pictures about the dresses and the location. One of the challenges was to coordinate 6 female models on the scene, in a limited space. When we reached the shooting location models were arriving, hair and make-up was in progress… After inspecting the room an the hallway of the old building, in order to set the scene and the point of view of the shots, we were told that two models stepped back from this project and we need to work with the remaining four. Well… and we started shooting. The following photos are my story about four non blondes women, having a good time and preparing to get out and have fun in the city…

It feels somehow peculiar posting a shooting’s result after almost half year from the shooting day… brings back memories, moments, laughter and fun time. As for myself, it was a unique experience to work with four models in the same time, paying attention to story line, details, emotions, the dresses… I must admit, at the end, I was drenched mentally and the driving home to Tirgu Mures was performed by my assistant Claudiu, excellently!  Thank for the patience folks, it was nice and memorable working together and congratulation to the whole team!

Bucharest Fashion Week 2011 – DAY 3

The final day of Bucharest Fashion Week was for me one of the finest fashion show I’ve seen. Not that I’ve seen so many, don’t get me wrong. I was impressed by the details, subtleness and choreography of the whole show in fact. Also on the final day was held the contest Fashion TV Model Awards, and with so many pretty faces I was curious indeed, who shall win…  Thanks for watching!

Bucharest Fashion Week 2011 – DAY 2

Day two was a bit different from my point of view. I mean the stage was redecorated, the FTV logo was lowered, the lights was rechecked and now it was almost even on the whole catwalk. I met new people, I found out that one of the luggage with dresses of the Italian designer who would end the show, on day two, didn’t make it to Bucharest airport and was sent elsewhere… Though luck, indeed. This time I will post more photos of the presented collections and hopefully you will find them as visually pleasing as I did. Day 3 to come… soon!

Bucharest Fashion Week 2011 – DAY 1

This fashion event was held during 5-7 may at Bucharest, where I had the opportunity to participate as photographer together with two models from Crystal Models Agency. This was my first event of this kind, I had a lot of time to observe and prepare for the opening evening, even got the opportunity to have some small talks with one of the designers.  In the following I offer you a slide-show about the preparation for the opening of this event and some shots from the catwalk with the clothes of the featured designers from day one.
