I hesitated at first, thinking it needed to be edited down to make it significantly shorter. But the 30 minutes of raw  footage is such an intimate view into one of the more magical shoots I have ever had.

Included in this post, are nineteen finished pieces from the shoot. As I watched this video, I forgot that it was me in it, and I found it fascinating to witness the creative collaboration between the model and the photographer as a body of work was brought to life.

A huge thank you to elephant journal’s Waylon Lewis and Lindsey Block (who shot and edited the video) for coming along and capturing the day. ~ Robert Sturman

    This was fun and insightful to watch, thanks for sharing.
    Was the decision to go mostly with hair-down for dramatic effect? I do think it takes some emphasis off the architecture of the postures (not necessarily a bad thing). Same is true of the red scarf…
