I have been doing so many fun shoots lately, it has been hard to keep up! This one was back in May, but I couldn’t share it until recently because it was published, which means we had to wait! I have many more updates coming soon, so I hope you enjoy this Los Angeles male grooming portfolio update!
As you have seen from previous posts, I have worked many times with Remy Tortosa and Anne Demay of 1817 Creatives. If you watch my (or their) instagram stories, you’ll have seen even more shoots by now!
I worked with them on a shoot with Timothy Granaderos from Netflix’s 13 reasons why, as well as with Moroccan model, actress, and influencer, Abla Sofy. The rest, however, remain unpublished, or unedited, and therefore unsharable as of now!
We did, however, in the meantime, do a shoot with international model and all around nice guy with a kind soul, Helder Afonso. I think you’ll enjoy the photos!
To start, here’s a behind-the-scenes shot that I took from their instagram, before they rebranded.
That’s right, sometimes I have to do makeup/grooming on gorgeous, shirtless gentlemen. I’ll wait while you start my pity party so I can show up fashionably late! 😜I did this again last week, which means there won’t be too long before there’s another Los Angeles male grooming portfolio update!
Helder has such gorgeous blue eyes that I couldn’t resist lining them with a matte bronze-toned shadow to make them pop a little bit extra. I think you’ll agree that it doesn’t look like he is wearing “guyliner,” and that he has beautiful eyes!
The images were published in Atlas magazine, for an editorial called “Living in a Dream,” which is ironic, because my second blog/tumblr was called “living the dream,” which is what I usually say when people ask me how I’m doing! And the best part is, I’m not lying!
As a reminder, Remy Tortosa was the photographer, Anne Demay was the wardrobe stylist, and 1817 Creatives were the creative director. I did hair & grooming!
Something that made this shoot extra cool was that we were able to shoot with a vintage Porsche, courtesy of Jean-Pierre Nataf. Here are some cool pictures that highlight the car!
It amazes me how expressive he is. Check out this juxtaposition…
So sad and contemplative one minute, and happy the next. Maybe he just wanted shades and to drive the Porsche?
Or without sunglasses works, too…
I wonder if this will be the only Los Angeles male grooming portfolio update with a Porsche featured for me?
I am enjoying playing more with men’s hair, and love the length Helder and last week’s model/actor have!
Road trip? I wonder where he’s headed!
How am I supposed to pick which shot goes in my portfolio???
Seriously, which images should I use?
I feel like I must say that I don’t advocate smoking, even though it does look pretty cool in pictures!
Alright, help a sister out. Which images are the best to put in my portfolio on the new site I’m building? Let me know!
