Since this ‘one hell of a studio’, which should probably get a name of his own sooner or later, was craving for some action, a photo session was organized, together with Ice Models, to celebrate the arrival of spring.

So, everything was scheduled for the sunny 6th of march. Quite a day…

Even though I was born, and lived for almost 20 years, right next to Ukraine I never had the chance to meet a fellow neighbor from across the Danube. The opportunity was offered however by Ice Models with Lena. And I have learned that vodka has the same spelling in Russian as it does in Romanian :)

But this session was no easy task whatsoever for almost everything had to be changed. Not only the stylist, just a couple of days before the shooting - for some obscure reason, the lighting scheme, for there was a ‘new arrival’ meant to complete the technical department, but the agency as well, with their different approach. And not only this, but we had to overcome even some temporary blackouts, during the session, due to a faulty extension cord.

Even so, a few hours later I was relieved. Everything went well. Quite a day indeed…
