Photographer Frederic Willem Lambert @frederic.lambert.photography presents this beautiful fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the model Ruben Wollants @ruben_wollants represented by Dominique Models @dominiquemodels_official, The Squad @thesquadmanagement, and Citizen @citizen_mgmt.
“As a photographer, I love to portrait people and I want to document them in my way. Every face, every body is different. I see it as a fascinating challenge to capture these faces and bodies in a way that they all look great. Showing the beauty of some and the particularity of others as in a classic piece of art. Especially I love to work with young men and women, who give me their intimacy in a relationship of total trust,” says photographer Frederic Willem Lambert.
The photographer combines his commercial work with fashion shoots because he believes that people and fashion go together. “Fashion needs nice bodies and particular faces,” he states.
“The model, Ruben, is a young guy I saw on Instagram. His particular face immediately caught my attention. I invited him to the studio. It was his first shoot ever. Being a bit shy at first. After taking only a few shots I was so happy with the result. I think we inspired each other and we made some amazing portraits. I presented him to a model agency I use to work with and a few months later he walked for Burberry in London.”
“As a new face, he needs to gain more experience and images to show his possibilities. Doing this shoot for Vanity Teen was a great opportunity to show this new talent to the world. During this second shoot, I felt he was more confident. I see he really loves modeling.”
For the clothing, they chose some classic suits by Café Costume @cafecostume, combined with basics, iconic scarfs and gender neutral sunglasses. They shot in different locations around the city of Antwerp, the hometown of the model. “I like to work with simple decors in nature. I also love concrete constructions. We combined both.” The environment brings tranquility to the image and the model stands out better, and the results are just amazing!
