Liara approached me to shoot her via a modelling site, where she will have no doubt faced relentless prejudice from many photographers only wanting to shoot Jordan-esque models. Fortunately for Liara, they’re not my cup of tea…see

My initial feelings of wanting to help her through my photography were amplified tenfold as a result. If my work with her could help in any way to promote her causes, brilliant, and a bonus if it helped to give her more confidence in herself.http://flywind.com.br/bakester/2208
