DIOR RODEO

Hanna Chan Attends Christian Dior Couture S/S19 Cruise CollectionFor the Christian Dior Couture Cruise Collection, I was hired to photograph Chinese celebrity, Hanna Chan, by Getty Images & Dior. I followed Hanna from start to finish which was something I have always wanted to do with a personality. I met her at a luxurious Parisian hotel before we made the trek out to Chantilly. As soon as we arrived at the show an all-out electrical storm commenced. However tragic that the entire collection got soaking wet, the event was beautifully done. Members of Escaramuza, an all-female rodeo—combining strength with beauty was the main inspiration for Designer Maria Grazia Chiuri which lead her to open the show with their performance. It was a pleasure to shadow Hanna and I thank her for letting me follow her around all night.

Photograph Victoria’s Secret legendary runway show, check!

2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris - ShowLike many, I grew up watching the Victoria’s Secret Angels walk down the runway– each model and outfit outdoing the last. Having the opportunity to be one of only about 10 photographers at the end of the runway during this legendary show was an extraordinary experience. Held at the Grand Palais in the heart of Paris, there was a lot of energy in the room, including performances by Lady Gaga, The Weeknd, and Bruno Mars, not to mention the power, confidence, and fun that the models and Victoria’s Secret lingerie create.

One of my favorite moments was an exchange between Bella Hadid and The Weeknd as they found themselves crossing paths in front of the world after breaking up a week earlier. Awkward!2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris - Show
