A little while after the new year, as is tradition, thousands of media professionals thaw out, sober up or get back to business and say “what the hell happened?” As we begin taking stock of the previous 12 months for cerebral clarity, emotional sentiment, data backups or to draw fresh marketing material for the next push, we hopefully will encounter standouts along the way. For me, this next image is such a standout.
Shot in Bucharest, Romania while working for a Canadian textile import brand called Poco Loco. The gig had taken me all over the country, shooting everywhere from castles to medieval mountain cities, but I finally snagged the frame I was looking for on my last production day in Eastern Europe, in Herastrau Park. After the jump is a narrow crop of the shot, which I also find striking. Oh, and the model’s natural, wild eyes which seem to follow you around the room.
