The Eye Behind the ‘Wetlands’- Marta Mcadams
Posted: Mar 04 2016
When we first came across this photo series of utter visual hair perfection, there were a couple things we wanted to know. 1)Who was responsible for the beautiful styling and direction of these shots and 2) how we could see more?
Marta McAdams is a beauty, fashion, and event photographer from Warsaw, Poland. Now living in NYC, Marta continues to make photographic masterpieces with a team of unbelievably creative women by her side. One of them being Sylvia J. Stankowski who is responsible for the hairstyling of the ‘Wetlands’ shoot.
We snagged an interview with both ladies and can’t wait to share. See Marta McAdams’ interview below and Sylvia J. Stankowski’s on the following blog post. Enjoy!
THD: Your photos are beautiful and very creative, do you typically dream up these ideas or think of them on the spot while shooting? Thank you for the kind words! Working out a concept is actually a pretty extensive process, it doesn’t happen over night. Even if I have an idea that I know will make a great story I always take my time and make sure that all the elements are in place before I press the shutter.
THD: What inspired you to come up with the “Wetlands” look? The desire to create something unique and beautiful. Simple as that.
THD: Where were these photos published? Wetlands was published in Institute Magazine, HUF Magazine, Vogue Italia and some other smaller outlets. The story got me and my team a lot of attention, which we’re all grateful for.
HC: Obviously makeup and wardrobe are a big part of a photoshoot but how important is hair? When shooting beauty hair is actually way more important than wardrobe! It has to be as close to perfect as humanly possible as it is very difficult to fix in post.
