Along with dreaming of being an artist, an animator, a fashion designer, and a photojournalist someday, I once aspired to be a fashion photographer. Needless to say, I'm not very specific on what my life goal is. Other than to do something that makes me happy of course.
These photos were taken a while back, about a year ago for a photojournalism class I was taking. Ironic, because they look like nothing that would print in a newspaper. Blame my idealistic mind for thinking I could one day shoot fashion photos for Vogue or Elle or something. I can't even remember what the class assignment was about, but it is clear I did not fulfill it. That day I remember somehow getting Massiel and her then roommate to dress up in these ridiculous ensembles in sweltering Texas heat and pose in front of some graffiti down the street from my old apartment. And what you see above is the result.
My photography style has veered way more to the photo journalistic style since then. Upon recently practicing photojournalism as a side job, I reminisced about my previous glitzier ambitions. Perhaps one day I will pursue fashion photography again and maybe, just maybe, if I'm lucky, get somewhere with it.
