Test Shot :: Toni Collado

Sometimes we all can get by with a little help from our friends. That was a very important message The Beatles once said. This was very true the other month when my buddy Daniel Wheatly brought to my attention this idea of shooting a girl by the name of Toni Collado. When I started to type her email address on her Instagram account, I realized she had messaged me before some months back. That is the only thing I would say about having a busy schedule – sometimes things like setting up photo shoots can get lost in the shuffle. Especially if you were to see my inbox. I wrote her a message mentioning that we should shoot. I kept my fingers crossed in hopes she wasn’t upset with me for not setting up a shoot on the first go around of messaging. Luckily for me she was cool as a cucumber and down to shoot. I went about renting out a location for our day in Beverly Hills. This set posted for her Test Shot segment was actually the very first set we did. I think she was a little nervous at first, but as you can see she got into her zone as we progressed. Toni is a down-to-earth, cool girl who I was happy to have had the chance to work with. So check out the interview below and hope you enjoy these black and white images of her.
