Venice Beach Fashion Shoot | Smashing a Guitar with Angel

Excited to share some new work with our super fun team - Angel Lin at Willow Models and Tania D. Russel of Makeup Werks. This shoot includes us dragging and attempting to smash a guitar on the streets of Venice. Which turned out to be way harder than we initially thought, but a blast nonetheless. You can see all the shenanigans at the end of the post in a behind the scenes video. 

Los Angeles Photographer | Olya

For Milan and I, a number of things can spark inspiration for us. Travel, lighting, music, a slice of pizza. But for this shoot the initial spark came from a dirty rundown motel with lots of character. There's nothing like authentic grime to really drive inspiration lol. But seriously the atmosphere was perfect to build our shoot with funky vintage 70s clothes and the amazing model Olya from Crawford's Model NY and makeup artist Morgan Merrill. We even broke out our Polaroid Land Camera's for a few shots and one of them made a cameo in the shoot. I think we need to name them at this point as they have a lot of personality themselves.
