Robert Orlando is a motion picture and commercial director, who is currently adding photography to his repertoire. Recently, we've been collaborating on a few creative projects such as a highly stylized commercial for which Robert was the Director and I served as Production Designer. We work well together because we share a similar aesthetic, and value the way all the little details add up to the big picture. We are also both Ellen Von Unwerth fans. Currently we are working on a series of photo shoots with models (Robert will shoot, I'll style). There are a few wild concepts floating around, some of which evoke a film noir style. Robert's film background highly influences his approach to his photography. He imagines the model as a character with a back-story. A few weeks ago, we experimented with me in front of the lens. I look forward to sharing the results of our future collaborations.
