Anyway, this editorial was very challenging. First, it's for Preview's September issue (pressure!) and, we wanted to do something of the same quality as our last editorial (Apocalypto); Second, it was the first time I was shooting for Preview without Creative Director/Genius Vince Uy's expert help on-set cause he was in London (believe me when I say that shoots are MUCH, MUCH easier with him); And lastly, we shot in the Resorts World Casino's Training Room and not the actual Casino. Meaning, we had a space that looked like every other boring office space you could think of. So I had to bring yards and yards of curtains from my studio (coincidentally I had brocade curtains so they're perfect for this Royalty-themed shoot, Thanks Cheska!) to conceal the office-y walls, and use my background stands to hold those curtains.
Thankfully it turned out nice and by the end of the day, we were really happy with it!!!
