Music Artist Lizzie Blazquez by Muhsin Shakoor

Model: @LizzieBlazquez

Photographer: @nitronuri | @uabn_photography

Location shoot: Manhattan, NYC

Shoot arranged by fellow photographer Joe Amato


It was a pleasure to spend the afternoon with music artist Lizzie Blazquez. As it turns out Lizzie and I already were familiar with each other for other events we have both attended around the city. Fellow photographer Joe Amato, knowing my love for beauty and fashion photography, asked me to do a quick shoot alongside our buddy Juan who also photographing Lizzie at the time. I truly was just there to observe and chill out so I was first I was a little hesitant. But they all wanted to see what I could do with this backlight scenario with which I have to admit, was very tempting. So I gave in to my temptation and took a few shoots with flash and a few with natural light. Lizzie was glowing and looked amazing in the light so I truly could not resist taking my camera out of the bag.

Diana Madalina Puscasu - NYC Runway Model Feature by Muhsin Shakoor

Model: Diana Madalina Puscasu

Designer: Alexandra Popescu-York

Photographer: M. Nuri Shakoor

Show: Couture Fashion Week FW2019

Venue: 4w43 Building, Manhattan


Diana Madalina Puscasu

New York Fashion Week Model Feature

A few of the photos taken during the ‘dynamic duo’ session of Diana and yours truly. Diana’s glamorous and sultry look is tailor-made for my style and approach to photography. With creating these artistic photos, I attempt to immortalize the designer’s collection as art, and to pay tribute to the designer as an artist. However, it takes a special person to embrace the collection and make it their own, with their own unique flair to draw us in. To make us want to know more about the artist behind the collection. Many of us in the audience and behind the lens, feel that Diana’s runway and camera presence, the way she romances us, is in essence selling the collection.

Special thanks to these amazing photographers, Ktodoma (IG @ktodoma ) and Bryant Moreno (IG @sevvperior ) , for their support and coverage of the Couture Fashion Week runway shows that were still in progress while Diana and I worked together.

Please stay tuned for more from these two photgraphers in the near future. Ktodoma provided video and photos of Diana and I in action.

Thank you for your support. Please visit us again.
