From the beginning of anyone's career, there are those who stood in their corner, pushing you to be your best and to believe in what you dream to be possible. For me, Odessy Barbu was that friend. I met Odessy in the city of Los Angeles when I had just come from Vancouver, Canada to work on my second album. Still green in the industry, and totally inexperienced in modelling, I asked a friend to refer me to the best photographer in town! Without hestitation, she said, "Odessy Barbu!"
From the day I met him, through the first photoshoot, and onto a series of shoots and projects, Odessy became an incredible friend but most importantly, he is a an outstanding photographer.
He is a famed for his fashion editorial work as well as his celebrity portrait portfolio that includes so many Hollywood A-Listers. I've had the pleasure of working with him on countless projects, and it's my pleasure to profile some of his work here. Check it out!
