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.

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

“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 .
