As a photographer, I will never forget the importance of this photoshoot I did with male model Geordrick Samuels (The Aegency) in early 2020. Little did we know at the time that it would be our last shoot before the pandemic hit. The shoot was fully shot on film, both black and white and color film, and captured the perfect mix of Geordrick's softness and masculinity.
The images we created that day have a unique grittiness to them, yet there is still a softness that comes through in every shot. I think this is a testament to Geordrick's talent as a model, as he was able to convey so much emotion and range in each pose. The film medium really allowed us to capture the essence of his personality and the energy of the moment.
This photoshoot was incredibly important to me, not just because it was the last shoot before the pandemic hit, but because it really encapsulated everything that I love about photography. It was a collaboration between two artists, each bringing their unique talents to the table to create something truly special. I think this is what makes photography so powerful - it allows us to capture moments in time that will never be repeated.
In conclusion, this photoshoot with Geordrick Samuels was incredibly important to me as a photographer. The images we created have a unique grittiness and softness that really captures the essence of the moment.
