Russia through Another Lens

OK, my title today is a bit deceptive. I really just wanted to get you to have a look! Russia has been in the news a lot lately and Mr. Putin – and by extension his whole country – have mostly been demonized by the U.S. press. It’s beyond the scope of my humble photography blog to voice an opinion about international demons. But I can say that most of the Russian people I’ve met are friendly, engaging and a joy to spend time with. Anastasia, pictured here, is a prime example!

Anastasia came to the U.S. about eight years ago. She grew up in an area near Sochi and attended and graduated from a college in Moscow. In this country, she’s worked as a fashion model and also earned an advanced degree in business. Anastasia is actively seeking a job in the business world and wants to build a life here in the U.S.

We did a photoshoot in the studio recently, working in a variety of concepts. This post has a few of the beauty/glamour headshots from that day.

Thanks, Anastasia, for a wonderful shoot. I wish you all the best, wherever your life might take you.

Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.

    I agree!! There are many gracious Russian “ambassadors” at large–just goes to show–splendid people in every part of the world I think. Spectacular shoot once again! particularly this fourth shot–absolutely captivating!
