Alejandro Perez – Behind The Lens

Laretta Houston

Posted in Art, fashion, Inspiration, Life, Photography by Alejandro Perez on February 25, 2010

When I started doing photography, Laretta Houston was one of the first photographers who I stumbled upon whose images  out to spoke in ways most didn’t. Nothing but inspiration to me…very graceful & well executed images and subjects, her post processing techniques along with lighting were pure genius.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to meet the mastermind behind the lens, found out via her Twitter (Incredibly wise person as well, follow! ) that she was going to be in NYC for a limited time. I was honored to be able to watch Laretta behind the lens & all that goes on behind the scenes of a fast paced Laretta shoot. Upon walking into the midtown studio I could already hear the electronic music bumping from the set (which personally I’m a big fan of), that in itself was a indication of the pace she conducts herself at. There was a team of make up artists and hair on set who had to tend to which seemed an army of agency represented models throughout  the day, She was courteous enough to allow me to spectate & snap some behind the scenes photos from her shoot. Through my perspective…
