Romain, has just shot the latest Abercrombie and fitch Campaign with Bruce Webber which should be out in the next month or two. follow him on twitter @ROM1VENNAT and https://www.facebook.com/romain.vennat
So yesterday I gathered a few girls and dragged them down to Hot and Cold Studios to test. It’s been a while since i last shot something that I really wanted to shoot. I love B+W and to have the options of shooting the whole day in monochrome was amazing.
The Shot’s I’m attaching now are of Suzanne W and the Makeup and Hair was done by Sonia Merlo.
the next few images are from my second day in the city. I was location hunting around my area in Williamsburg. It’s actually quite hard location hunting in NY because everything is a possible location. Everynight I would sit at home going through the images and I found it really hard to select the perfect spot because everything works.
On my way to the Brooklyn Bridge ( location Hunting again) My 3rd day in the city and it was a rainy one. New Yorkers don’t stop there lives for a bit of rain – you even see the odd one or two walking with out umbrellas.
Mr Gay…nor’s statue in a park in brooklyn
And finally the lovely Brooklyn Bridge. After spending a half and hour under it taking pictures for love ones and putting me Myself and the brooklyn bridge up on FB I discovered that it’s really the Manhattan bridge! Awesome!
…still the Manhattan bridge
All the presidents having tea in the park
And finally the real Brooklyn Bridge. I actually preferred the Manhattan bridge. The surrounding underneath it were more run down.
7th Ave – Fashion Ave – Beautiful spot. Will def be shooting there in September
I met up with my Friend Kat in Ny and her Daughter Olivia on the Left. Kat was in NY on holiday and she kindly offered to help me on all my shoots. Here she is going through Tattoo artists work for a piece she was getting on her Left Arm.
Coolest Tattoo spot I’ve ever been in! Playing White Zombie on Max!!!
My second last day in NYc. I had to cancel my shoot due to the dam rain! This was shot at Penny’s Diner in Metropolitan Ave, Willamsburg. Best Bacon, Ham, Sausage Omelets in town! Nice !
Love this location! We shot here on my last day. The flags are from Puerto Rico.
Give me a few more days and I’ll have my shoots up on the blog. Besides the 3 shoots I also shot 3 small videos for my site.
During my last Cape Town trip I shot a Marius from 1085 models. We did two shoots around Cape Town. I’ve just heard that one of New Yorks biggest fashion blogs THE FASHIONSTO has published a few of the images we took. Have a peep at the link below!
I’m sure most of you know that I’ve recently purchased the new H4D 31 megapixel camera from Hasselblad! Now I have a slight problem with the camera already. My images are to sharp!!! Can you believe it! I’m actually bringing down the sharpness on all my images cause just to make retouching a little easier for me.
I’ve just been processing a shoot I did for Bespoke magazine in Beirut and below is a shot of Ayden’s ( Killer male model in Dubai ) eye at 200% and 200iso!
I LOVE MY NEW TOY!!!!!!!!!!
About a year ago I went over for Coffee at my good friends Veronica and Luca. On there wall was this killer shot of Luca’s. It was actually a mistake that turned out to be a work of art. Lights, if shot at night with a low shutter speed can create things! So one night I decide to play around with the idea. We had a huge tree in the garden that my wife decorated with fairy lights. I played around for a few hours like a kid in a toy shop with the cool effect!
Afterwards, I played a little again in photoshop – putting my signature style on them …creating the perfect wall art! I’m yet to actually print up one of there shots - SOON THOUGH!
