Hello everyone, I am back with another test shot segment. It has been a minute since I have done one of these given my busy schedule the past month but trust me this one is worth the wait. While on my travels to Miami I had the opportunity to link up and shoot with a latin beauty by the name of Susie. Through the workings of the internet we were able to get together for a photo shoot, but it turned out she is also friends with Claudia Sampedro who I had shot some months earlier for my collection with Primitive Apparel. Lucky for me we figured out a day to link up and she cruised over to my location in North Miami beach early in the morning for a fun session. She had explained to me that this was only her third time having someone take her picture but if you ask me I really couldn’t tell. She showed a level of confidence when working and that goes a long way in photos. This was the first set we did and I immediately loved it. Simply due to the styling,the lighting and because I knew how good these shots would look in black and white. So sit back and enjoy some photos of Susie along with her interview and happy monday everyone.
