Photo by Olly Vento
Art can be conveyed in different ways, may it be through the use of musical instruments, make-up brushes, right fabric combinations, or camera lenses. As a form of art, fashion and photography come hand in hand and derive inspiration for the surroundings. Luis Corchon, a photographer and filmmaker, collaborated with notable people in the fashion industry, Olly Vento and Karmel Bortoleti, in their photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar.
Luis Corchon was born in Cordoba, Argentina but moved to the United States at a very young age. Since the beginning, he knew that he was not cut out to be one of the by-the-book people, which is why he dropped out in his second year of school. Headfirst, he taught himself programming, and established his network security firm in Washington, DC.
However, programming was a stepping stone and not the destination. After liquidating his business and selling his house, he took another leap of faith and moved to downtown Miami to establish his first photo studio.
In an unknown land, he had a clean slate, and even though this may sound nice for someone who is venturing into a new field, some challenges came along with it. Luis was starting from the ground floor, and he needed someone to show him the ropes, so he decided to build connections with established creatives in the community. He was surprised when several talented photographers greeted him with open arms, guidance, and warmth, which Olly exuded.
Olly Vento is one of the top fashion photographers in Miami. Luis and Olly worked together both in his studio, and hers, as well as on location in North Miami. He admires Olly because she has a clear vision of what she wants to capture and gives excellent direction to all members of her team. Olly’s rawness and transparency mesmerized Luis as his way of working is very similar.
In Harper’s Bazaar, Luis had the opportunity to work with his good friend, Olly, and Karmel Bortoleti, the Brazilian model who was featured on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. As the videographer, he captured how enchanting the production can be. Each frame is packed with the beauty of the process, from styling and make-up to the shoot itself. With the right angles, lighting, and earthy colors, Luis made the shoot look like a slice of paradise.
Indeed, nothing can beat passion as the best motivation in creating works of art that will be of significant impact. Check out his official website to know more about Luis Corchon and his craft.
