Offering a sensual indulgence to the eyes, photographer Jeff Delacruz seems to have a natural knack for creating mesmerizing photos that capture an essence of ease, grace, and understated beauty. In this ‘Sebastiana’ photoshoot, the warm sunlight flirts, flows, and surrounds Sebastiana – accentuating the young and innocent life and energy of the model. With a beach to compliment the scene, it’s almost gives the aura of a distant and yet familiar memory; one we could possibly all relate to (or wish to relate to!). These harmonizing, warm colours, look as though they are stolen from a dream.
Working with single models might just be the hallmark trait of this Chicago based fashion lifestyle photographer. What’s unique about Jeff as well, is that he takes on the role of a storyteller. He can’t help but arouse our imagination beyond the visual, with powerful and engaging text, sometimes just a few lines long, that compliment some of his collections. With hints like, “I am a star, I am a galaxy, I am a universe inside of an endless looped timescape”, (in his ‘The Time Traveler Series’) he takes our hands while delving deep into an emotional journey.
Yes, he knows his stuff, to say the least. Far from a newbie to the industry, Jeff’s photography business sees him specialising in fashion photography for fashion advertising campaigns, model headshots, and magazine fashion spreads.
Talk about versatility. He can also pull of sleek, as well as edgy and raw styled shoots; which show us a new ornate beauty in flawed couches, industrial greys, and scribbled walls.
