I blogged a few months ago about Giuliano Bekor’s underwater shoot with the beautiful Paz Vega. The photos are absolutely breath-taking which is quite literal- Paz had to hold her breath during the shoot! Special thanks to makeup artist Anthony Merante, stylist Anita Patrickson, and assistant Jesse Selchow for creating such beautiful looks. Here are two of our favorite shots from the photo shoot.
This past spring Giuliano came up with the concept of “natural born athletes”- Herculean creatures hatched from the wombs of Nike and Adidas with innate abilities to pitch no-hitters and dunk basketballs.
First shot in a dried out lake bed, Giuliano and our crew later recreated the cracked mud surface in our studio.
We celebrated yesterday with a heavenly coffee-infused chocolate Buche de Noël from Susina Bakery, which is conveniently (and dangerously) located just below our studio. The smell of fresh croissants wafts up through the building’s vents every morning, and every afternoon we catch whiffs of molten chocolate cakes.
Now that the holiday season has arrived, there’s no excuse not to indulge. I, for one, am breaking out my elastic waistbanded pants. Not exactly the most fashion forward look, but we must be practical in this economy, no?
Anyways, happy holidays to all of you. And eat some buche.
Here is a preview Jessica Alba’s shoot with Giuliano Bekor for the January issue of Harper’s Bazaar Australia. For the rest of the editorial spread, including an article about the actress and more of Giuliano’s amazing photos, check the magazine’s website.
Last week, our crew had the pleasure of traveling to Vegas to shoot a new ad campaign for Cirque du Soleil’s sexiest show, Zumanity. Featuring a cast of acrobats, contortionists, aerialists, and dancers scantily clad in original Thierry Mugler designs, Zumanity is part circus, part cabaret, and a whole lot of naughty fun.
Though I can’t publish the images Giuliano took until the campaign has been released, you can sneak a peak at photos from the show’s website.
In addition to inviting us to view and shoot Zumanity, Cirque du Soleil’s amazing creative team treated us to viewings of Ka, O, and Viva Elvis(which I hope to be posting about from the inside in the near future…) They were all unbelievable–giant shadow puppets, 60-foot high dives into the stage, trampoline flying–how does Cirque come up with these ideas?
But back to my point.
Keep your eyes peeled for the new advertisements (I assure you, they will be hard to miss), and if you find yourself in Vegas and are over the age of 18, buy some tickets for Zumanity.
