In January of this year, I wrapped a year long photo project with photographer Matt D'Angelo. It began as a Natural beauty Project (NBP) and evolved into a creative portfolio building piece for Matt, the models, and myself.
This Saturday evening at Fusion Salon (home away from home!) I will be debuting some favorite photos from the NBP as well as the a handful of others from developing local photographers and models.
Here are a few of my favorites from the NBP:
Thanks to the spark that Matt started, I began reaching out to local photographers, entering hair competitions, expanding my styling skills, and capturing a very attractive, marketable side of what I do: hair, wardrobe, and makeup.
Proud as I am of the work accomplished, the artistic desire to push myself keeps kicking my butt...I just can't shake it. As my good friend and photographer Hannah Betts recently put it, "Andrea, you know you can do commercial style work. It is now time to stretch yourself."
So....let's see what happens next, shall we?!
Here are a few teasers from the upcoming art opening.
SATURDAY Sept 22. 6pm-10pm. Fusion Salon.
Come hang out with me, have a drink on us, and view this artistic processes as it evolves.
