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
