Photographer Adam Washington @adamjwash presents this perfect editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the model Quenten McDonough @quentmcdonough represented by Wilhemina Models @wilhelminamodels.
As this was the model’s second or third shoot overall, the photographer wanted to try a little bit of everything with him to experiment and try new things to find the best shots, which clearly shows that they achieved an amazing result. In order to achieve this, they shot a bit of suited fashion, commercial ‘down to earth’ looks, as well as athletic and some fun physique oriented shots. Quenten has a strong history being a soccer player so his physique is well built and defined.
The equipment used for this editorial was a Canon 5D MIII Camera with 24-105mm lens with natural light, and it was shot in Harlem, New York at an Airbnb he rented out as well as in the surrounding local neighborhood.
“Even if you are not ready for the day, it cannot always be night”
“With this being one of Quenten’s beginning shoots I believe he did really well,” says the photographer. He was somewhat hesitant at the beginning of the shoot as Adam Washington told us, but warmed up quickly and got to really be more comfortable as they continued shooting. “As he becomes more confident and experienced in his modeling, I believe we will see some great shoots in his future.” We have no doubt about his bright career as a model!
The model is wearing various brands such as H&M, Urban Outfitters, ASOS, New Balance, Calvin Klein, and Macy’s.
