I photographed this image while I was going to a hair fashion shoot in NYC. I always carry a camera some where that is easily accessible. Camera in a bag is pretty much useless for street photography because by the time you pull it out and turn it on the moment is long gone. Street Photography is all about seeing things that are going to happen and be ready for them.
Remix-ed image from a photo shoot i did for the NAHA Hair styling awards in 2009 . I up dated the back ground and added a bigger hair. some times it good to look at past work and learn from the past. Photo BABAK

What a great surprise guys! Was called out at the Intercoiffure US / Canada show in New York City on Oct 8 2017 and awarded the Presidents award. I shot my first hair shoot in 1989 and since 1990s i have specialized in hair fashion photography. I like to thank Intercoiffure , Frank Gambuzza, the president of Intercoiffure, and Van Council for their kind words and appreciation of my work. Thanks guys BABAK
This shot is a part of the collection i photo-ed for Intercoiffure NYC with Van Michael Salon team doing the hair & make up – We used a night club for location – I remember it was very hot which made doing the hair just that much more complicated. You have to light & shoot fast when u have many sets to shoot & weather is not ideal but its always more inspiring to shoot on location.
i have a BTS film for tis collection as well

I shot This model Back stage right before she went on stage at Intercoiffure NYC 2017 – I find the energy and the grungy light back stage makes for very iconic photographs with good stories for future generations. Some times back stage is the stage. This was Van Michael Salon team presentation model at the Show.
I like to Thanks the Intercoiffure for presenting me with the Presidents awards at the show – much appreciated – Photo BABAk With very high iso and low shutter speed

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 – To me the whole story like has a “get away or run away ” feel to it

“9:30 p.m. November 1 2009, Rowley, up to his old tricks debuts his spoof collection ” BA- BILL” inspired by past Contessa images and shot by Babak. ” Salon Magazine Jan. 2010.
I thought it was a great idea when Salon Magazine approached me to make a spoof collection based on my 2004 photos entries to the Contessa awards. I exaggerated some of the elements that were in the original collection to get the point a cross but did not use the same back grounds or lighting as I thought that would have been too simple and obvious. I enjoyed making this collection with all its little nuances .
