DAKOTA BOTTCHER

Last fall, I was finally able to work on an editorial with Diane Jong, one of the photographers that works out of FWD Studio. I had the pleasure of meeting her at their Opening Mixer, and collaborating was always in discussion ever since. It was only a matter of time till we put something together.

We planned on doing a hip, kind of grungy street wear shoot, and these were the results. She sent me several different models to choose from, and I knew right away that Dakota would fit the bill. The shoot was later on in the day, so light and time wasn’t on our side (you can actually see the progression through the photos). I’m actually pretty happy with how it turned out. Diane has such a moody style, and I think LA’s “golden hour” helped capture that.

Thanks to Dakota for being a chill dude. He was super laid back and easy to work with.
