I had the pleasure of photographing Camille Kostek, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Rookie 2018 recently. Camille is besties with a friend of mine from college, Sydney who connected us together for this shoot. Camille had just gotten back from her 2019 SI Swimsuit shoot in Australia and I was excited to shoot this body positive dance beauty in NYC!
For this shoot, we worked with Natalia Bizinha who did a beautiful makeup and hair on Camille, giving her glowing, fresh skin and moveable, textured hair. I love working with Natalia because she focuses on bringing out the natural beauty of any subject and makes their skin look amazing.
Shooting with Camille was a dream because as a dancer, she knows how to move and work it in front of the camera. During this shoot we also focused on getting some beauty looks and poses down. I love testing with models because it’s an opportunity for them to explore something new in front of the camera. Camille recently shot some beauty + jewelry jobs and I think we will be seeing lots more of her face this year!
I had a wonderful time photographing Camille, I hope you enjoy the images!
