Photographer and stylist Ryan @kvnty presents Waiting Room, a beautiful fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the model Olivia Lund @_olivialund represented by Select Model Global @selectmodelglobal.
For this shoot, the photographer styled the model for the first time. “It was a rush to find the clothes that I thought would look good in the space and on this particular model.”
“I have wanted to shoot in an abandoned building for years now and I finally found this space on PeerSpace,” says the photographer. “According to the building owner it used to be a clinic and the main room with the beautiful double staircase used to be a waiting room. This was coincidental because a lot of these shots were taken in a chair as beauty shots, to show off the model’s beautiful red hair and freckles.”
The photographer incorporated colors that would go with the model’s red hair and the yellow of the space. “I wanted vibrant colors to pop against the decay of the building.”
“I wanted this to look very European and like an old building that hasn’t been inhabited for hundreds of years.”
The equipment used for this editorial was a tripod because the light was quite low in the space, a Canon 5D Mark iii, and a detachable flash, and it was shot on the West side of Chicago in an abandoned building that is available to rent online.
The model felt strong while doing this shoot. The clothing was empowering and bright!
