Sometimes, when I’m bored mostly, I’ll start going through old shoots that I’ve had. It’s fun to ‘relive’ that day but also you’ll find outtakes that you want to use after all. This is an example of this. The first 2 photos are on my website alexanderhabesland.com as part of my ‘personal‘ series:
But going through the photos from that day I saw this photo:
It wasn’t right for the original spread, but still, love the portrait.

Your hopes in the sky
But your heart like grape gum on the ground

Today I had a different kind of photo job, and it got me in the Christmas spirit.
I’ll tell you more about it later. In the meantime, take a look:
Usually when I’m planning an editorial I’ll have a casting to make sure that we book the right model(s). You need to see how they are in real life and if they can portray the story that you’re shooting. And so I have a lot of casting photos
For example; here’s a select few of the models that we saw on the casting for VS. Magazine,
men’s editorial, this spring.
And for that particular story we chose this model, Panos, from 2morrow Model Management.
Here’s an outtake from a new editorial I’m working on.
Hopefully ready within a few days for option.
