Tod’s Shooting in LA
I remember as if it was yesterday when I was in Italy, and I started modelling.
I was very curious about how the team worked , around me.
At the same time, I had to do my best to satisfy the customers’ wishes, with the shooting.
With the different photographers that I worked I had to jump, dance, be sexy, angelic, and I had to be several people, wearing several masks.
But this time for the first time in my life I had the opportunity to be a producer. One day I received a phone call from Italy by one of the most important photographers in Italy Stefano Guindani who told me he was going to make a photo shooting inspired by the surf world of Los Angeles, with real Surfers, and he proposes me to participate ,not as a model, but as an “Excecutive Producer “for TODS brand in LA.
I was very exited. The truth is that whenever I have the opportunity to face a new project, sometime I feel a little bit scared but I always try and in front of this good opportunity I said Yes. In this project as executive producer for Tods shoes, I had to look for professional people in the Industry of fashion.
I started to scouting the real surfers in Malibu Santa Monica ed Venice Beach in LA. Also, I had to find the best stylist, makeup artist, assistant production etc.
As soon as I met Todd & Bria ( the professional surfers in Venice Beach I felt in love with their energy. They were perfect for the shooting. Also, I scouting a great models as a Thais D’Lima, Tom Mckeown and Lauren Marie Young. All this guys together were a great team on set. Their energy and vibes was incredible!!!!
After this experience as When as an executive producer, I can say that implied always several responsibilities on the set. I felt very sostified with the result of this project. The happiness of to be for the first time back to the camera was incredible.
Special Thanks to Stefano Guindani for making me join the incredible and unique TODS project.
I am very happy to share some backstage photographs with you, of our protagonists for Tods.
