Danielle Pollack / Behind the Scenes Shoot

Danielle Pollack Photoshoot with John Hildebrand from John Hildebrand Photography on Vimeo.
Didn't have much time to shoot video sorry next time.

Here is a behind-the-scenes look of o ur recent shoot with model-actress Danielle Pollack, originally from New York.  For this high-end shoot, we pulled the latest in lingerie, swimwear and lounge-wear from La Perla, one of the biggest names in Italian Fashion.  The company's sophisticated, luxurious, and expensive garments were a perfect fit for our Jamaican/Argentinian model's exotic look.  Also my clothing stylist pulled one of a kind pieces just for this shoot.  Our location in the Malibu Colony, an incredibly picturesque home with high ceilings and rich decor, was equally fitting.

The final images will be submitted to fashion magazines for a possibility of publication.  Editorial submissions are a great opportunity to test out new lighting, work w with new people, and to create what you envision in low-pressure environment.
