Fashion and portrait photographer Pablo Santana @pxblosxntana, who is originally from the Canary Islands, Spain, and now based in the UK worked with the handsome model Tim Troetschel @tim_troetschel represented by New Monarq Manila @newmonarqmanila, URBN Models @urbnmunich, and View Management @viewmgt for this fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online!
“We wanted to approach the shoot with open arms, leaving room to play around and experiment,” says the photographer. “We wanted to explore two worlds: a more fierce confident and sexy, and another more laid back and relaxed. Playing around with shadows and light and trying to bring out Tim’s spirit through the photos.”
“I was really interested in exploring and experiment with emotions and closeups, letting Tim shine without the use of extravagant clothing or makeup.”
The editorial was shot using a Sony A7 II and a 24-70mm lens and it was shot in a studio in Brighton, UK where both Tim and Pablo live. What once had been planned to be an outdoor shoot, had to be adapted into an indoor shoot due to unforeseen weather conditions in the UK.
“I think my style shines due to its simplicity and how much I love incorporating the subject’s personality and aura into the photos. At the end of the day, a photograph is a representation of the person being captured, so even if most of my work involves fashion and extravagant looks I like having the reality of the person’s personality and soul. Capturing how they feel, what they feel.”
Tim is wearing Emporio Armani, Jewelry from Cartier and Bvlgari, Vintage turtleneck and cardigan, Trousers from ASOS.
