Marco Alexandros by Dave Ouano
20 year Marco Alexandros is certainly more than his appearance, Marco describes himself as very versatile, energetic, fun, alive, and smiley. His passions include the creative, modeling and acting, as well as a passion for traveling. Marco has Argentina, Brazil and Japan on his destination list to visit in the next couple of years.
Another of Marco's passions, and one photographer Dave Ouano incorporated within their recent shoot, is sports. Marco says he is always pushing his limits in all aspects of his life whether it be athletics or modeling. Marco says he has been a athlete all his life and it is clear he would not have the body he has without hard work and discipline.
In my previous profile of Dave's work, (Eric Anderson by Dave Ouano) I wrote about Dave's focus on movement. While many photographers focus on a moment, one of the thing I love so much about Dave's work is his skill at capturing moments of motion. This creates an energy in Dave's work that is not only seen but felt.
Check out more of Dave's work on ModelMayhem and his official site HERE:
Also look out for Dave's fashion photography in the December issue of Akira Magazine and the January issue of Fashion Chicago Magazine!
'My inspiration for most of the movement/jumping captures is the classic "fallen angel" image, or the beauty of the human form separating from Earth, even for just a brief moment.'
