“I truly enjoyed photographing Hope Arellano for the cover and editorial images in EQ Living. What surprised me was how down-to-earth and easy-going Hope was. Being a polo player and competing at the highest levels in men’s and women’s competitive polo at 19, Hope is a natural in front of a zoom lens”, comments photographer George Kamper.

George’s tight schedule and middle-of-the-day shoot on a hot polo field were challenging for capturing the best light and telling Hope’s amazing story. But Hope made it easy and was happy to try any of George’s ideas. She took direction well and when Hope changed from her polo attire to a casual wardrobe, she was simply elegant in front of the camera.

Make-up artist, Leslie Munsell from Beauty for Real, did an amazing job with Hope’s make-up in the sweltering heat, also leaning a hand from time to time holding a reflector or camera bag. “I can’t thank Les enough for her constant support throughout our years of working together”, George comments.
