Rebel Rose

Andreea came from Bucharest to Cluj because she wanted a photo-session with me and a new tattoo with (my own and favorite tattoo artist) Marius Iacoban from BasTattoo.
Searching for a location I found this incredible abandoned building, full of graffiti and interesting windows which turned out to be perfect for the photo shoot we planned.

Enjoy!

Retrenchment trend. Cartoon

Hello everyone!

Oana Ianuli is an actress that I’ve meet briefly two years ago year when she was still in college. Now she lives in (the awesome) London :) She wanted some picture made by a Romanian photographer, for her blog so she contacted me to tell me that she want’s to commission me for a photo-session…and when she told me she want’s a session in the towns oldest cemetery I immediately said Yes!! I wanted from some time to do a shoot in that cemetery but I needed the perfect model(s) and concept. Oana was happy to hear my ideas for this location/shoot and we ended up with a mix that pleased us both.

Enjoy!

EnVogue Couture Session

A super duper foto session put together by me and the two guys from FlashMe.ro, Gloria and Alex.
I’ve told them my concept for this session and they found me the location/make-up/hair/outfits and the rest was pretty easy :)

This session was such a inspiring one. The concept was all mine with no restriction what so ever…. I didn’t need to follow any standards just the one set by me. I wanted the pin-hair hair styles that I’ve made there on the spot and the girls where so great even at the scary thought that in the end we need to take them out and that usually hurts more, but in the ended didn’t hurt (so they’ve told me) We used 87 gold & 473 black hair clips ;) My sister helped me to put them all and after that I’ve let myself go wild with Madalinas make-up the orange/purple one that I wanted to be something eles, matching the hair style. I have to say that I’m pleased with the job I’ve did with the pin/art/styling and Madalinas make-up. Mihaela was so great letting me do whatever I wanted with the hair and make-up even if this year trends are different
