I love discovering new talented people! Especially people whose work I admire. I finally got to shoot with the beautiful photographer Melissa De Mata who was first brought to my attention by Jaydee. I found myself constantly checking her blog for updates because I couldn't get enough of her photos. Her bold concepts and risky images she takes of herself are one of kind. We initially tried to meet up back in the O.C. area but failed and out of all places met her on my trip up north to SF. Melissa loved these random isolated orange chairs scattered outside of a cafe. The lighting had a spotlight sort of vibe. Loved how these photos look like stills from a play. I definitely recommend checking out her blog HAPPYMESS along with her other photography blogs. Cannot wait to muster up ideas and collaborate with her in the very near future!
