soft as snow

This shoot was made in March 2015. We spent all day in my studio in Hackney Wick photographing this amazing Norwegian musicians “Soft as Snow”. Had a lot of fun, but got absolutely knackered by the end of the day. Masha’s eyes got red and we were all really worried that the laser got into her eye, but luckily  no artist was injured during this shoot :) All special effects are hand made during the shoot, no Photoshop was involved in this production like in most of my light painting works. Now as guys are finally launching their EP we are allowed to show some of the photos from this shoot. More photos are coming soon with the album release! Check out their music here ——>

Over the hill with Tim Andrews

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 in BLOG, Uncategorized | No Comments

Couple of months ago I received an e-mail from Tim Andrews, a guy with Parkinson disease. He’s been on a photographic journey for 6 years and had been photographed by over 300 photographers. Images along with stories about meeting with different people are published in his blog. He also does exhibitions and was already exhibited in National Portrait Gallery for Taylor Wessing. I found the project really inspiring and decide to meet and photograph Tim. Tim is a lovely person who in my opinion found a courage to look his sickness into the eyes and managed to see something good in it. He told me he thinks it was a price he had to pay for his freedom. All of his life he has been working as a lawyer (oh, how i can understand what he means by that as i spent 3 years of my life doing the same thing) and only now gets to do something more creative and exciting. One of my ideas was to cover Tim with glitter as he is shining through the darkness into the light. Everything is shot on long exposure in a dark studio and I paint with light as though using a paintbrush. I do not use Photoshop in any of myartworks all the effects are purely photographic, so each artwork is unique and cannot be replicated.

That’s what Tim wrote in his blog: http://timandrewsoverthehill.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/back-to-front-by-mila-nesterova.html

So here’s the shoot:

petri_fashioneditorial

I finally published this beautiful fashion editorial on my website today. It has been out in print last week, we shot it in March. Was a long preparation process, it took us 1,5 weeks to build set and get ready, some of the styling and outfits came all the way from Paris to London to make this beautiful story happen. Very happy and proud of the result. It took us 20 hours actual working time to shoot, because of unlucky accident with model who got golden paint in his eye and we had to find and replace one of the models.. this shoot was saved by 2 wonderful models Jaco Norman and Alessandro Roberto Pirzio-Biroli and all my team members who was brave and strong and had to work all night long. Thanks to all who made this happen, all very enthusiastic people devoted to art!!!
