Dear friends. Almost 2 weeks without posting new pictures and stories from this amazing New York fashion week. What I was doing ?
Working, my friends, working on my new project “Models Can Smile” that would help models to make a descent living. As you may know or not know it, few models make a descent living from modeling but a majority make it barely. I want to help them because this industry is very hard on them. Knowing them for years now, I consider them like little sisters, like fragile and innocent girls to protect. Up to now, the feedback from the models I met during New York fashion week is very positive, many of them couldn’t wait to be part of it.
From one thought to another, let me tell you about one of these great encounters : meet the gorgeous model Gizele Oliveira, met at Michael Kors. This encounter was great because it will allow me to share with you what kind of stupid things I like to do when I meet models.
1- surprise them to capture their natural charm and reveal their natural kindness.
2- Ask them to pose to test if they trust me.
But of course, I can’t help myself to tease them.
3- Let other street style photographers take their “serious” pictures…
and screw their photo shoot by teasing the model. I got you Gabriele ! Hehe.
4- If the model has a boy friend, use it to create a funny moment together.
I took Justin appart and whispered him : “Tell Gizele a secret you never told her, I’m gonna take her natural reaction. Chose a great crazy secret !”
This funny trick I use works so well that I can help myself to do it again.
Now Gizele, you can thank me for these 2 secrets you just learnt thanks to me.
Justin, want to share them with us ?
Thank you very much to both of you for this great encounter, for your trust, your generosity. I can’t wait to give it back to you dear new friends.
