At the time I met Karol, I had been photographing models for about eight months. Compositionally, I was beginning to find my way and I was decidedly by then all about the natural/available light. I have no recollection at all of how she and I crossed paths. What I DO recall is that she lived in Miami (not on the beach) and all of our shoots took place in her part of town. And, outside of her apartment, she picked the locations.
Absolutely gorgeous woman and a pleasure to work with. And she gave me one of my most favorite shots ever. Interestingly, she was the first model for whom I ever composed a promo video (which is long since lost).
