About the Video
This was shot in Milan, Italy at what was a large industrial complex converted into loft spaces. Yana, the model, had arrived in Milan 2 days before from Ukraine. She has been modeling for about a year and has worked in Japan and Taiwan. She is a very accomplished model at age 15 and we were very happy she was available to shoot.
The ability for the model to move, project and be 100% "comfortable in her own skin" is paramount in capturing the imagery we were able to get. This was Yana's first project with Steve and he hired her for another project 4 days later.
