I thought I’d share some pictures taken at a great event thought up by two great really talented people, photographer, graffiti artist, graphic artist and body painter Nate Smith otherwise known as Unek and Lauren Ivy Aguilar, a smart, beautiful, accomplished graphic designer and model. Elaborate Collaborate is a successful photography meet and greet workshop for models, makeup artists, hair stylists photographers and fashion designers. It is a blast and a great place to meet new people, network and become better at what you already love to do!
We’ve been to the first 2 and are hoping to attend number 3 in July. These are some of the photos we’ve taken at the Elaborate Collaborate Events.
This photo was shot at Elaborate Collaborate II in Albuquerque, NM at Black Market Goods Gallery of model Lindsay Otero, MMA Fighter and King of the Cage Gerald Lovato and Lauren Aguilar. I actually stole a few shots of this shoot by photographer and artist David Medrano, who currently has his artwork up at Flying Star Cafe at the Railyard in Santa Fe, NM. If you get a chance, stop in and see some of this work! (That’s him on a photo shoot below)
It was a joy to photograph Lindsay. We didn’t have very much time together, but just every shot was amazing! As you can see she is very beautiful and quite talented. This girl will go far. I’d love to have the opportunity to work with her again.
Another lovely young lady we had the good fortune to work with was Jennifer Abeita. We got some really great images from our photo shoot together, I couldn’t have been more pleased. It was great meeting and working with Jennifer. We are looking forward to another photo shoot with her next week!
Below is another model we were fortunate enough to work with. Dionne had a great attitude and was really fun to photograph. Her images were easy to edit and I was very pleased with her natural ability in front of the camera. This girl is a true beauty
This is model Erika Garcia and DJ Justin Gonzales in the background. …what can I say? Erika is a strong, smart and beautiful woman who knows what she wants.
We didn’t spend too much time together, but Erika was great to photograph. She has a great look ! Did I mention she’s a very talented makeup artist as well as a beautiful model?
Well, that’s is for tonight folks. I am so very behind on blogging. I have much more to add. So much to share, so little time!
MeShall Quintana designed the gorgeous scarf and hat.
Come back soon for Part II!
