Meet the Planning Committee


Essence Latifah


I love planning all the details that go into a Fashion Shoot. I am always traveling and networking with other people. I wanted to produce an amazing photoshoot in all the beautiful places in the world. I wonder if anyone else would be interested in participating in the shoot. So welcome to the 1st biannual Destination Shoot.


Although I am no Sebastian Kim or Lindsey Adler, but I can hold my own. I do know what I am doing behind the camera. I plan multiple successful shoots a year and absolutely love it. I have a network of photographers, MUA, hairstylists, and designers.


I also know how the industry works and how to approach people to get them interested. The best part of the experience is that all you have to do is show up, there is no planning on your part. Forget about the stress, the logistics, the planning and leave it up to me.
