Some of the most exciting projects are those that start with a collaboration of like-minded people. Although it is nice to create art on your own and it is also nice to create art with someone who may not see things through the same lens as you do, it is extraordinarily satisfying to create and conquer a project with those who have similar visions.
Locally, there are so many talented people putting together fun, innovative, fashion forward photo-shoots, for mere pleasure and/or other unique reasons. I have had the opportunity to work with lots of creative people in our community. Mostly, I am just impressed with how many creative people there are to work with in the local fashion and art scene with in Northwest Arkansas, and the variety of visions and talents they bring to the table.
Here are a few looks that were born after working with one of my favorite local models, Natalie Denton, and one of the most amazing photographer’s I’ve had the pleasure of working with, Sohpie Odelia Bauer.
