Orlando Photography managed to host a New York Fashion Week Photoshoot along with five magazines that drew 38 models and 12 photographers. The pictures from this shoot were published.
One may ask why Orlando had this vision. His inspiration came from seeing models walk the runway and not get paid because they had not been published. Orlando gave models, photographers, designers, MUAs and hair stylists the exposure to help them get paid assignments. He also chose models with a wide variety of looks as the fashion industry continues to change. Plus-sized models are now getting paid assignments!
