SOUL / PRESTON RIGGS film

Here is a new film i shot with the amazing Preston Riggs. He is a model from California represented by Adam Models.
 for this video we wanted to work a concept from a starting quote of an Oscar Wilde quote “What men call the shadow of the body is not the shadow of the body, but is the body of the soul.
Also we wanted to incorporate the idea of fear as fear of shadows, but the fears only exist within us.

IGGY by BELL SOTO for Risbel magazine

Here is the 20 page cover story and film I shot with croatian model Igor Kolomiyets "IGGY" for spanish magazine RISBEL.
We shot this story in Venice Beach CA.  The concept was a modern James Dean, fun , naive and happy. People were stopping to see him and without knowing the story would comment "looks like james dean!" we thought mission accomplished  :)
Thanks to Marco Servetti / Vision Los Angeles.
