Los Angeles Men’s Groomer | DATCH Print and Video Campaign

Los Angeles Men’s Groomer | DATCH Print and Video Campaign

As a Los Angeles men’s groomer I had the pleasure of working with DATCH on their 2020SS print and video campaign shoot in Los Angeles, California. @hueman.it was contacted by DATCH to hire as a creative agency in Los Angeles to produce its 2020SS campaign.

DATCH creates sportswear collection for contemporary men. Streetwear is a style of casual clothing that became global in the 1990s. It grew from California surf skate culture and New York hip hop fashion to encompass elements of sportswear, punk and Japanese street fashion.

About the creative agency, @hueman.it helped the company to re-position DATCH brand on the streetwear market with the #urbanstories SS20 campaign. That is one of the reasons why the agency decided to shoot in Los Angeles, California. They curate brand strategy, creative direction, and content production.

We worked on this shoot for 2 days in Los Angeles, CA. On the first day of this shoot, we captured campaign images and on the second day, we focused on both the photo + video aspect of the commercial shoot. Our team was small yet very professional, the director and fashion photographer flew from Italy, Milan.

Our models are represented by @wilhelminamodels. Wilhelmina Models is one of the largest and most successful modeling agencies in the world, founded by Dutch supermodel Wilhelmina Cooper. Wilhelmina Models represents men, women, children, professional athletes, and celebrities. The agency has offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami, and affiliate offices in North America and throughout the world.

As a Los Angeles men’s groomer, I hope to work with this international team in the near future as it was an awesome experience!

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | The Walt Disney Branded Video

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | The Walt Disney Branded Video

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, The Walt Disney Company hired me for their Disney Art 4 Ways: Maleficent branded video shoot in their studio. We shot this branded video for 2 days.

I was hired to do camera-ready makeup for 4 people. Camera-ready makeup isn’t about heavy coverage or overly bright colors. It’s about understanding how and what the camera is going to see.

Things you must need to create a camera-ready makeup and as a Los Angeles makeup artist I use all the time:

  • Contour: When taking a photo/video the camera makes you look flat with no dimension, so contour your face to create shadows, making you three-dimensial to the camera
  • Avoid Shimmer: A little shimmery highlight on the cheekbone is OK, but try and avoid shimmery eyeshadows as flash photography reflects light back, causing the skin to look washed out. Matte colors work perfectly if you are going to be in front of the camera.
  • Pack on the Translucent Powder: Before adding blush or bronzer, pack on the translucent powder and use shine-free foundation. For the same reason you want to avoid shimmery eyeshadows, you want to use translucent powder to tone down the natural shine of your skin. Toning down the shine is why celebrities are constantly being touched up when on camera.
  • Use Primer: Prime you face and eyes before applying makeup
  • Apply Mascara: Mascara will really make your eyes stand out, and your overall look will be perfection.

The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios complex in Burbank, California. I had a great time working with The Walt Disney Company team as a Los Angeles makeup artist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.
