traveling light

Last November we went to Torroella di Montgrí, near Barcelona, to speak and do a workshop during Traveling Light, where more than 80 photographers from all over the world came to meet, share and learn from each other while disconnecting from the day a day life, and you can see more of this experience here.

For us, it was the perfect ending for and incredible year filled with many new challenges, outstanding moments and unforgetable memories. Traveling Light was a magical moment for all who attended, you could see the excitement in the air and we will never forget this week at Cinema Montgrí, where Albert Roig and his team where able to create an one of a time event!

During one of the days, we held a workshop, where we had the chance to speak and sshare our creative process when we design and shoot editorial work. For this workshop we prepared a story that we are sharing today. Each image portrays a significant moment in our plot. Our storyline is about a woman searching for her freedom, after feeling trapped into a routine.

We can't thank enough our incredible team, who made this possible under crazy conditions: Diva Borrelli Make Up Artist (a true angel walking the Earth), Canigueral Mesas con Esencia, Otaduy and Natalia.

One to One by Brancoprata vi

In the beginning of 2017, we welcomed Maria Rão into our studio for a day, to attend a One to One session with us! The weather was quite horrible that day, no natural light and it rained so much we had to shoot inside! Because of that, André didn't had a lot of time to photograph, it was more important to let Maria shoot, of course, but even so, he managed to do a roll of black & white film. Make sure you check Maria Rão's work to see her beautiful portfolio, she is based both in Lisbon and Marrakesh.

workshop greg finck

Last May we traveled to the South of France to design and style the third edition of Greg Finck's workshop. This year Greg challenged us to create something inspired by Alice in Wonderland (please make sure to follow this link, to see the actual images of the workshop taken by Greg Finck).

Although we were completely emerged in the creation of each set and we didn't had anytime to spare, André was able to save a few minutes to snap a handful of images. 

This editorial is quite meaningful to us, it was a long but exciting process and to do creative direction with no boundaries is like a dream come true for a designer! I have to say my favorite part of this experience was when the workshop attendees first saw the Queen of Hearts set up!! The Queen was expecting them in the middle of the forest looking absolutely stunning and terrifying and it almost felt like they were in Wonderland!

A massive thank you to the whole team, this could never happen without this talented, incredible group of people: Laetitia from Floral Design Laetitia C. - fleurs d'atelier who always designs the most beautiful flowers, my girl crush Rime Arodaky who sometimes I honestly think, lives inside my head and was able to design 2 dresses that were absolutely perfect, Tânia from T Bakes Atelier who I trust completely in various aspects, my dear Camille Bonardi who created the perfect look, my friend  Pascal Dele who tells the stories like non other,the adorable girls at Nice Plume and Creme de Papier who designed beautiful paper details for the workshop, the owners of Les Domaines de Patras who help us with production and setting up, the girls at Canigueral for sending stunning tabletops all the way from Spain,  Heart of Gold Design who designed that incredible head piece for our Queen, Bella Belle Shoes for sending us the perfect pair of shoes, and of course, last but definitely not least, our dear friend and talented photographer, who always trusts our vision, Greg Finck.

Finally, if you work on weddings, make sure you sign up for the next edition of Greg Finck's workshop, in Paris next year, it's going to be crazy good!!

One to One by Brancoprata V

In order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer, most of the times a portrait shows the person looking directly at the photographer, for this One to One we designed for Alice Nunes Vicente Fine Art Photography, the idea was to explore the concept of a portrait, where we wanted to achive the representation of a person in which the face and its expression is predominant. And although we never get to shoot a lot during our mentoring sessions (after all we prefer to be focused on the person who is doing the One to One with us, in this particular case, Alice) we thought it would be fun to share a few of the images we took that day.

Please make sure you stop by Alice´s blog to see her wonderful images and a full post on our One to One!

It's quite obvious to see why both me and André love to do One to Ones! It's a great opportunity to meet talented people who are making the wedding industry better and better everyday! And every time we get an inquiry to do one of these mentoring sessions, we get really excited about hanging out with incredible people! This time was no exception, Joaquim Fial, asked us to do a mentoring session with him a few months back and today we are sharing a few images of the editorial we did, during that beautiful golden hour! Make sure you stop by Joaquim Fial's website to see his work!
