Let me introduce you to my friend Kirsty: Model, funny, extremely smart, loves Patrón and is affectionately known by her groupies as the Patrón Princess.
[two_column] Earlier this year, both Kirsty and I had taken steps in new directions hoping to find that elusive balance between doing something and being passionate about it. This shoot was the start of something new for the both of us and what a start it was!
Thanks to the very helpful and generous Augusto Palacious Jr, we had access to an awesome location in the form of Latinova and a special thanks also to the very talented Maria de Vos for all her skill with the makeup and brushes.[/two_column][two_column_last]The lighting setup was pretty simple.

Huge windows and lighting at the club allowed for some really interesting effects. It’s amazing what having control of only one light source can do for your creativity![/two_column_last]

A huge thank you to everyone for doing such hard work, and being so great to work with, and not forgetting my friend Augusto. Thank you so much for allowing us to shoot at your venue!
