Chiyoteru (Eternal light ,千代照)


As my brand expands I become more in love with what I do. I know I’ve said this before but this shoot is my absolutely favorite to date. I had a vision and a concept and I brought it to life. I want to put my spin on what I felt would be a modern day Geisha girl.

I literally was laying in bed one night looking through photos on Tumblr and Pinterest to try and develop the right look and feel I was going for. After a few days I knew exactly what I wanted to go for. From what I wanted the hair to look like, to finding the right type of dress even down to make up, and set design. And I knew exactly the team of people with whom I wanted to work with.

I am more than pleased and happy with how everything came out. I feel this is just beginning for me and shoots like these set me apart from the rest of my competitors. This has transformed from just your typical “stylist” to a bigger goal in which I’m working towards production manager/creative director.

I hope you guys enjoy my work as much as I enjoy sharing it with the world. There will be greater things to come for the Antonio Cardoza brand. I am determine to leave my mark on this industry, and I WILL! Just wanted to thank the team I worked with for this shoot you guys are amazing and thanks for helping bring this concept to life. Love you all.
