Photographer Nico Quinteros @nico_psc presents this marvelous black and white fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the model Quimey Castañares @quimeycastanares represented by Sun Models @sunmodelsmanagement.
“I’m always looking for a chill and relaxed vibe in my work, so that is what I tried to transmit through my images,” states the photographer. “We talked a lot with Quimey and got to a good level of confidence with each other.”
Nico Quinteros gets really inspired by portrait and documentary photographers such a Nan Goldin, and Larry Clark. “I have a few of their work on my phone, so from showing Quimey those pictures as references, we knew where we wanted to get.”
For this shoot, he used a Nikon D810, with a 50mm 1.8 lens and an 18-55mm, and it took place at his apartment. “I have a huge window with great natural light,” he says, the perfect place to create an amazing fashion editorial, following his attraction to B&W photography, and natural/casual expressions.
“Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.”Salvador Dali

He was totally connected with the photographer as he told us and was proactive all the time. “He is amazing and I think he is going to have a great career,” states Nico Quinteros.
