Creative Director

Toni Riales Photography

As the Creative Director for Toni Riales Photography I had a variety of tasks. I was in charge of conceptualizing and implementing all editorial fashion photo shoots, and procuring locations, clothes, the crew, and props. I worked side by side with all stylists to ensure that the looks and styles fit within the concept. Once the shoot was over I then would assist in the editing process to ensure high quality and a good flow in the story. In addition I  work with editors and publishers of fashion publications on both submission and commission projects.
