"Working with Eduardo was not as much of work, as it was an experience. He is not a director, as he allows you to be in control of your own movements, your own shoot. Perhaps the only thing he may suggest is moving a little closer to the left or right for better light. I’ve seen many photographers ask Eduardo how he is able to inspire his models to show him such raw emotion, and the truth is, he doesn’t. Instead, he encourages his models to listen to their favorite music, to dance around the room, to be themselves, and to just become lost in their own world. He is simply there, while we are lost, to capture the natural beauty and rawness of emotions that already exist, which others may not notice. The model is given the freedom to move how she likes, and feel what she wants, and Eduardo simply captures that emotion or feeling, until a different song may inspire a change. Eduardo does not create nor direct emotions like other photographers do, instead he captures what is given to him and creates art with simplicity instead of complexity, created by wardrobe or backgrounds. The experience I had working with Eduardo is unlike any other, and I am always looking forward to working with him again." - Ona Z.
