MAX SILBERMAN / WE HO film by BELL SOTO

It has been a while since I updated my blog.
I shot this very sexy video with my friend Maximilian Silberman. We have worked together several times. but this shoot was actually inspired and happened by accident. I was walking back to my hotel in West Hollywood from a shoot and Max was sitting outside of this apt at the time. We were happily surprised since i had not seen him for a year. I had my video gear we started to shoot in the backyard. and then decided to recreate the scene using him as the two characters in this fictional story.
I think the lack for crew and equipment and light and everything people need for filming was on our side to create a more intimate connection. cheers Max! x

DAVID AXELL / by BELL SOTO

I have worked with swedish model David Axell for a long time, we met almost 10 ys ago. He has always been an inspiration and great friend. We just met for a coffee few days ago to talk about new ideas and I shot these images. He inspired me to do some of my very early fashion films "eclipse" and "sunset" below.

ADAM HUBER / SONATA film

Here is a video collage of moving images I shot with model Adam Huber. 
I always like to experiment with my personal work,  
Instead of doing the typical sexy guy in underwear - which we have seen plenty everywhere- , I clashed elements of Surrealism , George Platt Lynes- whom I adore! -, and Sistine Chapel ceiling for the finale. 
For music i used a sweet minuet from a Mozart sonata
Special thanks to Kevin Holloman @Adam models NY

ADAM GUMULA 'reverse story"

ADAM by BELL SOTO


Here is a story i shot for the "REVERSE" issue of Caleo magazine with amazing model Adam Gumula @ Soul Artist Management. 
I wanted to do a story that reflects the concept and also a fashion film. It is more challenging because everything has to be planned when shooting double exposures. The film was shoot in one take per character. I am going to start working on more conceptual projects.
The clothes include designers like Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Paul Smith, Calvin Klein.

CHANCE for Hello Mr. magazine

Here is a story i photographed and short film for the 3rd issue of Hello Mr. magazine.
I was inspired by an amazing image series of Duane Michals, so it is a little bit of an homage to his work.
