Guess who was the first fashion blogger I’ve ever shot! Oh wait… the title gave it away.
I shot with Liz Cherkasova of Late Afternoon back in January 9, 2011. I was fortunate to do a shoot with this model / stylist / fashion blogger (yes, a very deadly combination) who was very natural in the camera and sported some kick ass looks for this shoot. This is one of two looks, I’ll upload the other one some other time. But this was my favorite – an all of these are unpublished shots. We shot this at The Presidio, in San Francisco.
They say you’ll always remember your first. I think this was the first time I’ve realized that fashion bloggers who love the camera are the best muses to have. This week I’ll bombard my blog with BlogCrush posts!
I met Punam Patel of Nothing Broken several months ago at an SF Fashion Tech meetup in San Francisco, but we lost touch for a little bit and then decided to jumpstart ourselves to become a blogger-photographer dynamic duo. I love Punam’s styling and the way she carries herself. Totally Ryan’s Muse material. Hope you enjoy this set which we shot around Golden Gate Park. Watch out for more shoots of Punam later on this month!
Diana Su has always been a special figure in my photography career. We worked together at UCSF as pharmacy technicians, and she pretty much became my first model when I started falling in love with photography. As I went on to pursue more fashion photography (and eventually creating ASTONISH Magazine), she herself went on to evolve as a stylist, makeup artist, and blogger. Three years later, we finally did a shoot in which she was her own model, makeup artist, and stylist. This time, I get to blog about her!
