Lifestyle-to x David Forteau

David and I first met at a portrait meet in June 2016 that happened at Underpass Park. Since that meet we’ve been meaning to collaborate but couldn’t find the time to do so. It wasn’t until I was tasked to do two photo shoots for the site and I reached out to David a month before school began. We met up at Evergreen Brickworks on a Friday in September. It was a little humid but we managed to get some shots in the heat. David happens to be a breakdancer, photographer, and model and what I had envisioned for the shoot is to incorporate his dance moves into the greenspace. It was a short photo shoot that went on for 45 minutes. We went from the trails to the shed.
