Czech Fashion Designers: Olga Afanasjeva
Sometimes I don't mind photographing in well-known locations. Yes, everybody knows Prague's Havlíčkovy Sady, however, if you spend some time composing, you can effectively avoid getting the fountain in the shot, and the over-used location turns into an ambiguous European garden. I enjoy photographing wearable outfits as much as I like shooting more high fashion looks. It is a different kind of challenge, showing the thing's quality and finding visual beauty in the mundane.
All dresses by Olga Afanasjeva strike you with their exquisite cuts and outstanding quality of materials.
This is one of my favorite shoots with Lucka because the outfits match her personal style. I might say that this set of images captures portraits of Lucka herself and not characters we come up with for the other designers.
