Last Daze meet Archie:
"I am Archie and I take pictures of people. I’m based in Surabaya but I travel for projects around the globe. My professional path in photography started when I got the chance to shoot for Europe’s top modeling agencies in Europe such as Elite Models Amsterdam, Jill Models Antwerp, and Ulla Models Amsterdam. What makes me a different as a photographer is that I care so much about my subject. I’m always inspired by the raw beauty of women that I want to translate it into art. I want my subject to find their best angle, look the best version of themselves, and most importantly show emotions through my images. To me, emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique. Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact and are selfish. To me, to point my lens and just shoot, is to have the model working in a vacuum. Therefore I always engage my subject in conversation while shooting. I believe when we are working well as a team the shoot will flow, and the subject will be encouraged to explore new poses because they are simply comfortable."
