Photography is a major staple here in New York. From Central Park to every bridge of the 5 boroughs, it’s landscapes like these that draw in aspirations and inspirations to connect with the knack of creation. And that’s where Budapest-based photographer Viko Speier comes into play. Having established an insatiable passion for capturing those crucial moments, Viko began hitting the ground running as soon as her interest in photography manifested. “Capturing souls and unspoken stories mean the real essence of photography to me.” – says Viko Speier, who met recording artist Christone (who we reviewed recently on the Artist Reach platform) for a photo session just after his new release “Another Chance” was released here in New York.
“I feel lucky to have not only a job, but a profession that enables me to spread love and joy through my vision. Capturing souls and unspoken stories mean the real essence of photography to me. I consider every shooting as a chance to let my models discover themselves and redefine their limits. Art is my way of connection to people and revealing through my images the uniqueness I believe everyone has, makes these bonds even tighter. My mission is creating an atmosphere of trust and capturing timeless moments as works of art worth printing out.” – Mission accomplished! When looking at the photos of the session, we can see that she managed to be inspired by Christone himself and eventually found herself shooting the rising artist in an exclusive photo shoot.
With two artists honing their craft from different spectrums, both Viko Speier and Christone got together to connect and create some new promo shots that showcase both artists and their respective fields. The new shots are beautiful, and really encompasses the beauty of resonance and balance between Christone‘s good looks, stylistic clothing, passion for music and the colorful details of his guitar. As you can see above, the pose is natural, but speaks a thousand words in quality. It’s the result of collaborative ideas coming together on solid ground; working together to create, capture and advance careers on both ends. Viko‘s skills behind the camera would be a very welcoming presence here in New York, and her work is proof.
