V, Behind the Scenes !

by hopelesslyambitiousv

Today I had the awesome opportunity of shadowing a local designer as he prepped for a photo shoot. I got to see first hand, along with a few of my other classmates, all the time and preparation a typical fashion photo shoot requires for both behind the scenes and in front of the camera.

Excuse me if I sound a little gitty and over joyed. This is Rhode Island, this stuff doesn’t just happen everyday here!!

The designers: Everett Hoag, Zach Lo (shoes)

The location: Aspire hotel/restaurant

The agency: Safari Models (out of Charles St. Providence, RI)

It was really cool how welcoming everyone was to us students. The team went out of their way to make us feel apart of the shoot. They encouraged us to ask questions, mingle with the models, and really participate in all the action. They were so welcoming that they even encouraged one girl in our group to join in, and help with styling the model’s hair!

All in all, it was a very fashionable afternoon, not a bad way to spend a Tuesday.
