A short film of our 2 day work shop for master hairstylist in Atlanta.
Day 1 was in class theory / types of hair shoot / how to get great images from the shoot / ideas / model selection & on set tips.
Day2 was in studio photo shoot with Daniel Holzberger helping with the hair on set and guiding the participants while BABAK photographing the models and going over the images and how to improve your hair for photo shoot.
We had 10 advanced stylist participate and they paired up working on a model for the shoot. We shot a total of 5 models / some with different hair looks .
It was a learning experience. The experts showed us all kinds of neat tips that you could do relatively easily for some wild hair, and really good looking hairstyles as well. Special thanks to the folks over at hair to ware as well for showing us some pretty interesting wig tips that can cut down on your prep time if you set it up ahead of time. We’re probably going to be using wigs in some of our future projects since there are some things you can do with them that can be a lot more complicated to realize with real hair and the model having to deal with the extensive hair and makeup time. Getting your hair pulled on for over an hour while you can’t move much will affect how you do your job as a model after all. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot. It all culminated in an awesome photoshoot, and we hope you like the end result as well as the behind the scenes video!
The final images from the shoot are posted at the end of the video.

We used fake walls and wires as props to shoot a NAHA Hair Fashion Shoot in 2009 – I just re edited one of the images with new back ground and then again with a new hair that i shot on an another model and then photoshopped on the original model.

Very late night improvised shoot & quick eats t at Japanese on St. Marks Place In East Village New York City with Model Alex Feldman. I tried on camera flash for sone of the shots and stretchiest for others. Each lights open new stories and spaces to shoot – My favorite shot from the shoot was “Starving” with Alex & the other person on the street which engaged us . There is another person that started to urinate on our set – The strange s of the street shooting Photos Music Film © BABAk 2017 www.babak.ca
One of my favorite collection which I Photographed in London England on a Road Master double decker bus – one of the old London buses – I had traveled on them as a kid and always found the aesthetics to be very unique. I Photo-ed most of the models with natural light but London gets dark at 4:00 pm in October so i had to plug in a set of strobes after that. I worked with a great team at Van Michael Salon, we had good times and high energy. Thanks to Van Council for the opportunity – I Made a home made / BTS film of some of our time at the shoot, with the final images at the end of the video. BABAK Photos
I found this bike in the storage room of the studio & decided to use it last minute too add a story line to the shots, with an special outfit from studio 54 and footwear from Vessi shoes for men– To me the whole story like has a “get away or run away ” feel to it

This is another use for the used white seamless paper after the shoot! Ninja fighting at night using car head lights to light the action in the parking lot. We had to move in very slow motion due to the time laps setting on video camera which made for a very interesting show for the neighbors and passersby .
