When I was working at Polo Ralph Lauren I remember being attracted to this wall of photo’s behind this anonymous person’s desk. As time went on I introduced myself to Mr. Anonymous photographer man and told him how I am always drawn to his photos every time I walk by. He had 8 x 11 color prints very neatly pinned up on the wall behind him. They were mostly portraits but the color, the crispness the content, it was all amazing. Said great photographer man is Thomas Bugarin. I don’t remember when the discussion came about but we found out we both went to Pratt and were only a year apart and had a few friends in common, after all even though I graduated with an architecture degree I started out in fine arts and studied abroad in the fine arts program and as well hung out with my painter photographer friends more then the architecture students. Anyways, I think it was a mutual attraction that I wanted Thomas to photograph me and he wanted to photograph me, well maybe I wanted to be his subject a bit more but anyways nonetheless it finally happened.
Thomas Bugarin finally shot my photos and it was oh so much fun. We absolutely had a blast and the photos are amazing. I love his sensitivity to light and I love how his images look so finished. Nothing is touched up they are exactly as he shot them. I was like, huh? Is that me? I am giving you only a sneak peak of the few photo’s Thomas sent me but will post more when I receive the rest. Don’t be alarmed by the deer in the photo, I am a vegetarian and animal lover; I wanted Mr. Deer with me because he was so handsome………
Thanx a million Thomas. When can we do it again????
Let me know your thoughts.
Oh yeah you can find Thomas on facebook as he is reworking his website.
