I am so excited to share with you the photoshoot that I did with my two subjects Santino Lojero and Jei Raby. I’m so used to being in front of the camera, so when they asked me to get behind it–I jumped at the chance!
Styling was directed by Santino, the lovely Blasian with the aviator glasses, and combined with a bit of my creative direction/input, we were able capture their outfits + aesthetic to the fullest extent. Jei, despite not having much experience in the creative realm, was still able to bring a level of class and regality while shooting.
It’s retro. The color palette is slightly on the ’80s neon kitschy side, but only in the best way possible.
This is editorial material I’d use if I wrote a feature story on a native LA electro-pop/indie band.
My favorite part about photography + fashion is that you can capture culture visually. Fashion signifies cultural markers within society and often exhibits moods through color combinations and textures. Good photography can convey those things timelessly. Looking at these photos evokes a nostalgic feeling within me. Does it do the same for you?
Pretty proud of this collaboration! If you’re ever down to collab drop a message!
