Model: Aileen Garcia of Niche Models All Photos by Kaveh Kardan
I am always happy when fashion photographer Kaveh Kardan shares his exquisite, dramatic images with me. He has such a great eye and his use of texture is so tactile. I want to reach right into the scene and take a piece of it.
Kaveh and stylist Therese Wahl recently took two models to a waterfall and let their spirits soar.
Model Camila Storchi of Wilhelmina Hawaii
This shoot reminds me of an exciting experience I had when I was fourteen. My family was house sitting for the Atherton family at Luakaha, their beautiful estate in Nuuanu Valley. There is a waterfall on the property and somehow Vogue Magazine discovered it.
The Vogue photographer asked me to put on a bikini and pose on various rocks and in the water so they could determine how and where they wanted the model to pose, and how the light would change. I had no idea so much was involved with a photo shoot – it was my first exposure to the complex world of fashion photography.
It was a very glamorous job, indeed, although it got quite chilly after a few hours!
