“I love shooting fashion, it’s fun, challenging and a great opportunity to explore another side of my creativity. It’s also of the moment, so I can experiment and allow things to develop more so than on a commercial shoot.”
These were only a few of the things that renowned photographer George Kamper learned about himself during his latest fashion editorial shoot for Venice Magazine. The editorial, which went under the title “Into The Wild”, was shot in Birch State Park, Florida, and ended up resulting in a beautiful series of black and white images.
While on set, Kamper would do everything to make sure that his crew and the model (New York-based Yara Khmidan) would have a smooth and enjoyable experience all throughout shooting. Thinking about things like how his models will get to and from set, making sure everyone stays hydrated in the summer heat and that they are all well fed are only some of the things that make Kamper easy to work with. As he himself puts it: “I guess if I’m involved, I have to bring it.”
