This shot was pure spontenaity, on all involved. We had been shooting with Nadiah for a few and she really wanted to do some couples shots. However, since that was not planned I was scrambling to find a suitable male model. I was having no luck whatsoever, on such a short notice. So, Nadiah went downstairs to have a little break, my studio right above an American Apparel store. When out of nowhere, Aaron stepped out of the store. She jokingly asked him if he was a model, and of course he was!!!!! He recently arrived from Mexico....ahh my fellow countryman, to pursue a career in acting and modeling. He was so game to come up to the studio and get some shots in. Him and Nadiah were naturals and look very well together I might add. We got some AMAZING stuff from both of them. This is the first shot, as they both wanted some Commercial Print Lifestyle shots.


This is also my very first upload of the new photography team consisting of myself and Stephen AKA SMGALLERY . I mentioned before that we have started a new company and will be offering photography services, retouching, workshops, etc. We will have a website up and running soon, but we do have our blog up so please be sure to follow along and check it out! I will be working on some retouching tutorials as well as different light setups that I will be sharing. If you are interested in Landscapes, Steve will be uploading some cool tips as well to help those wanting to get into that style of photography.




Hector and Steve
