Behind the Lens | David Urbanke

As soon as the week passed, I simply said onto the next one and readied myself to unleash another exclusive interview with one of fashion’s amazing photographers. (Of my generation of course) I was elated when David agreed to do this interview, simply because he and I are around the same age, and I get excited about people who have the same enthusiasm about success and reaching their goals like I do.  With a mind made up and a great future ahead, David and his Canon 5D Mark II has never failed to capture a great moment in the life of his fashion career.  Shooting with various models and agencies, David has been the boy behind the camera for many editorial spreads and features. Seemingly having a love for black & white photography, he never fails to amass all the emotion within his subject, and whether boy or girl, his sense of youthfulness always shines through.

How old are you and where are you from?

I’m 16 years old and from Berekley Heights, New Jersey but I moved into New York City in the beginning of June.

We all know how great New York City is, but is there anything you prefer New Jersey for?

Sometimes its nice to escape to New Jersey because Read the rest of this entry


Behind the Lens | Dimitris Theocharis

So I’ve finally decided to launch the new column on my blog, which comes after much work and anticipation. I was pretty excited for it, and with the first series out, I can’t wait for you guys to see all that’s in store. For quite some time now, this incredible man has made his way on to my short list of favorite fashion photographers, and gladly, I had the opportunity to get to know him a bit more. With photography that in my opinion inspires many with his creative approach, I’ve grown to appreciate all the hard work that he puts in, to achieve results which are beyond amazing! One thing I’ve realized over the last few months is that more and more people are entering the world of photography, in search of success, and some aren’t putting in effort at all. Nonetheless, (like someone at an editorial meeting said yesterday) “one can definitely separate the sheep from the goats.”  With his Hasselblat H3D 39, Dimitris has captured the covers of many magazines, editorial spreads with some of fashion’s biggest models and has been a Tumblr phenomenon.  Having photographed some of my favorite models including Rob Evans, Marlon Teixeira, Tony Ward, Baptiste Giabiconi and Leebo Freeman, he has made more than a name for himself within the fashion industry, and whether in New York, Paris or back home in London, he’s always keeping us on the edge with his stunning photography.

So Dimitris, how old are you and where are you from?

I am 33, and was born in San Jose, California, but was brought up in Chalkis, Greece. In 1995 I then moved to England to study and I’ve stayed here since. Where am I from? The truth is that I feel equally at home in London, where I work from, California, where I have many friends and family, and in my spiritual home, Greece, where the light and the food are unbeatable.

Sweet! When did your individual interests in fashion, and photography spark?

I developed a passion for the visual arts and more specifically drawing and painting whilst I was still at school in Greece. Whilst still a teenager I created my first studio in the basement of my family home and I would spend Read the rest of this entry
