The Man, The Camera and The Power of Fashion Photography

All Photos By Evangelos Koutsavdis Model is Vonnita Jones, Hair: Ashley Lenee, MakeUp and Wardrobe Styling is Melissa Whitt
Model: Kristie Kbabie Beard

The Man behind the camera shooting the best independent fashion photography in the Detroit Metro area is none other than Evangelos Koutsavdis.  The above photos are some of my favorite selection of his recent work.  As you can see there is absolutely no reason to have to go to New York for the highest quality production print work.  Detroit has vision, the models, stylist, and photography skills to get it done right.  A special thanks to Vonnita Jones, Ashley Lenee, Melissa Whitt, and Kristie Kbabie Beard for their amazing talent and work on the above photos.  FreeStyle In Detroit is a fan!

Invisible Twin: Rose and Mario Suau, photo by Janna Bisette
Invisible Twin is a local creative team working in original ambient music, visual art projects and music licensing with other artist for commercial use.

Rose wears many creative hats, shooting photography, creating original art, writing, graphic design, and is also a musician.  Together with her husband and creative partner Mario Suau they have been composing music for many years.  Currently working on a new album to be completed later this year, it will be released on various digital platforms so check their FB page for updates.

The team can be hired for a variety of commercial work, including web page sound branding. 

If you have not already seen their "Young Heart's" audio narration project please check it out.  Y.H. is the first project of it's type for the duo and was well received at a pop up art gallery earlier this year.  They produced something deeply sober and true.  For many of us much of youth is a process of trial and error, confusion and pain.  Each photo invites the viewer into a mini story that unfolds differently for each viewer and that is what I love about Rose's work.  She is a captivating storyteller.  The music is beautiful and haunting, the perfect marriage for the piece.  Let me know what you think of it.

Mr. Song Millinery, Kentucky Derby In The News

Models: Valerie Landwehr and Cami Beauregard

Alvita, Valerie, Cami and Jessica smiling for Luke
Yesterday morning Luke Song gathered the four of us together for a Kentucky Derby segment on his latest work for Fox 2 news.  The photos are a few we snapped in the prep room at the station.  It was a lot of fun and I was impressed with these three young Women ( Valerie Landwehr - Ms Teen Michigan, Cami Beauregard, and Jessica Phillips ) they are so professional and charming. 
Most of you know I am no model and have never been on television, so keep that in mind and be kind. 
From Detroit with love to all you Derby fans and a huge thanks to Luke Song and Mr. Song Millinery for their wonderful work!
