Headshot work - Actress/Singer Thais Francis in Red Hook, Brooklyn
Please check out my Swim Street Style story for Refinery29! Click here or the image.
It was super fun to shoot. I went to The Hamptons/Montauk, Rockaway Beach, Coney Island, and Modellounge x Microsoft Model Summer Hangout at the Gansevoort Hotel.
I really tried to get as much diversity in body sizes, ethnicity, occupations, etc. I was happily surprised that most people were flattered and happy to have their photo taken. I’m so happy they were so confident, hopefully it will inspire you and me to be as well : )
Anyway above is SiLyA (Silya Nymeon) a Norwegian singer living in Brooklyn. She had so energy. She had gotten her vintage swimming suit the day before from “Ricky who looks like a pirate” at Artists & Fleas in Brooklyn. He picked it out specifically for her. Also her sunglasses are from “H-f*cking-M!” It’s not about the brands you wear but how you wear it! Anyway, SiLyA’s music is great — check it out here: www.silya.com
