On September 11th , I was part of a “Shootathon ” with a group of models from Curaçao . The models are a group from M.M.M. A modeling agency from Curaçao and Venezuela.
The shoot came about as the Portfolio Fashion Magazine , who had featured the Plitz model of the year in an edition for the magazine , befriended the agency and was notified about a month ago that the group was coming to New York city for fashion week . I was then contacted asking if I would help with the shoot of the models before they returned to Curaçao.
What had began as a sort of impromptu photo shoot turned into more as we were joined by : Lenshina Designs who had provided all the dresses seen here and make up artist : Sherry Alberto .
A side note: Curaçao has become my 29th country in my attempt to photo 100 people from 100 countries .
1st model featured is Plitz model of the year Geeña Bentoera
3rd Leanora Schnog
