The last show I worked on was the Trujillo Collection Fashion show in DTLA. There I met Ashley Covarrubias, who is the owner of The Model Experience, TME. I also met Celebrity Photographer Jonathan Chia, all whom were present "backstage" during hair and makeup for the Trujillo show.
I got a call earlier this week from Ashley with a voicemail (missed the call) requesting my BTS (behind the scenes) photography services for a runway show that they were producing this weekend with her company. She apparently loved what I did for Trujillo Collection. I called back a day later and the job had already been booked to someone else! I was kind of bummed, but nonetheless, excited that I got considered. I made sure to let them know that i was making myself accessible to them for any other upcoming future events.
about: THE MODEL EXPERIENCE
TME is a modeling program. Their curriculum is designed to educate emerging models through real life modeling experiences. They have placed some of their top models in trade shows, fashion shows, etc. The goal is to catapult talent to the next level. Many of their past particpants are now with agencies. They offer runway coaching, professional photography, studio photo-shoots, fashion show opportunities, & more (www.themodelexperience.net)
Friday rolled around and Ashley texted me inquiring about my availability saturday afternoon. The show itself, that i missed the opportunity to shoot, was on Sunday but they were gonna be conducting the photoshoots and runway prep the day before. She wanted me to come on set and take some BTS photos. I made a few arrangements, confirmed and made my way to EDGE studios in Los Angeles on Saturday. Here's a glimpse of what was going on that day.
