Los Angeles-based photographer Lester Villarama has only been in southern California two years, and shooting fashion photography models for about six months; in short order, his work is already capturing a lot of attention. He recently shot DT Model Management’s stunner Zachary Dare, which we are thrilled to present on PnV/Fashionably Male.
While Lester does work with artificial lighting in his studio, he prefers shooting in natural light. This perhaps harkens back to college, at the Illinois Institute of Art, where he first fell in love with landscape photography. Lester studied photography while majoring in Web Design & Interactive Media. Lester more recently was inspired to work in fashion photography, where he has already landed his first magazine cover, in a recent issue of Period Magazine. Lester also shoots some of his favorite Filipino entertainment stars.
Lester is open-minded with shooting in different styles and genres. He likes capturing the natural movement of his subjects as well as subtle emotions. He is inspired by Filipino photographer Mark Nicdao as well as lens masters like Francis Gum, Irvin Rivera, Jerrad Matthew, Brian Jamie, and Sarah Mireya.
Zachary Dare is a sexy 6’ 2.5” model with brown hair and eyes. The Michigan native started modeling around 2012. Our PnV biography on Dare is a bit thin as he did not respond to our multiple efforts to reach out to him.
