Intercoiffure NYC

Asian model  on a couch Shot  in a Moulin Rouge club setting shot for michael van salon by NYC Fashion Photographer 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 photographed model  Victoria Vachtchouk in the back seat  while on route to a different location on our  Paris night shoot. It was a relatively cold night and she was wearing some ones coat over her shoot clothes. The car was moving fast through  streets of Paris  and I could feel a shot there some where in the back seat.  There is a slight blur on the photo which I think shows how pumped and rushed I was.  A Babak Photo 2010 Paris – [Dangerous ] 1/13 second at f 2.0 35 mm glass.

Took a little break from photo editing and took advantage of the great evening natural light to do a few shots with Larysa .  A Babak Photo 2010 NYC


Photo © BABAK

We stopped our fashion photo shoot today so the model could feed his snake pet. It made for a nice break and a quick photo opportunity .

I used  a 135 mm lens with a extender to get this close up shot. The extender  is added between the lens and the body , has no glass in it and lets you move closer to the subject while still maintaining the focus. It is some times confused with a teleconverter or a doubler which is used to increase the focal length of a lens usually for far a way subjects . A Babak Photo 2010


G20 Toronto Photo shoot

Photography © BABAK 2010

The G20  – Toronto  – June 2010  – all the controversy and the  $1.2 billon security expense but just another summer event to be enjoyed.

A quick shoot at the G20 fence area at night. Thanks to the officers I got great perspective, they even recommend me a camera they use, the Promnico police body camera because they saw mine the one i use daily to capture my shoots and places I go, and they told me this is for sale in amazon and this has excellent reviews and HD quality and a lot of features I can actually take advantage. Also the officers helped with the lighting and the local Italian restaurant for lending us the table cloth for us to use as the top for the model ! A babak Photo – Friday June 25 / 2010

Contessa Spoof - Photos © BABAK 2009

“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 .
