The current push in the industry towards motion is one that has thoroughly fascinated Dominique. Directing, DP, are not so unfamiliar from the still world, but it is the ability to edit that has proved to be his most powerful and surprising tool. Learning that it shapes the viewing experience to such an extent that it has more to do with his films being great or terrible, than most people realize. Along with that, Donimique has had the opportunity to work with dancers in his recent projects and it has opened his mind to new ways of seeing movement and discovering how riveting it can be. The originality of movement can make someone beautiful and compelling, and the opposite is true as well.
Although born in France Dominique has spent most of his life in the US. Currently based between Paris and New York. Dominique was awarded “Best Picture” for “MOVE” at La Jolla fashion Film Festival 2011.
Originally from Paris where Jacqueline started as a stylist, she has been living in New York for over 10 years. Most recently the Creative Director of CosmoGIRL. She has been also freelancing for other publications such as City, Doing Bird, Diva, …as well as advertising work.
Working with clothes is a beautiful thing, a stunning designer piece or the perfect simple boy’s blazer. She loves mixing and finding that perfect balance, a skill that is probably what she is most recognized for. Finding the challenge of using affordable pieces to produce a very high quality look extremely rewarding. No matter how simple the clothes are, a woman can always look stylish, sophisticated and have an edge. Looking expensive or cheap has nothing to do with the actual price tag. “Avoir du chien” is what matters…
Another side of my work has involved working with celebrities. From Justin Timberlake to Taylor Swift, via Natalie Portman and Robert Pattinson… Trying to push for more of an editorial look is always the goal while staying true to the image that the person needs to project, a balancing act. Overall, to create an image, a style demands not only a strong vision, but also to be very consistent so the result has the most impact. Having high standards even in the smallest details will always show and shine in the end.
Hairstylist Yoichi Tomizawa hails originally from Tokyo, Japan but his passion for hairstyling has led him around the world. Trained at the Vidal Sassoon Academy, Yoichi has worked and studied in such varied locales as Manchester, England, Toronto and Milan. He has also served as an instructor and opening member of the famed Toni & Guy salon in Milan. Unsatisfied with the salon world, Yoichi slowly transitioned into the realm of freelance hairstyling where his talent and technique caught the eye of his eventual mentor, master stylist Eugene Soulemain.
Yoichi’s extensive training and undeniable skill have since won him his own following of the industry’s best and brightest including Catherine Malandrino, Victor Demarchelier and Diego Uchitel to name a few. Yoichi’s infectious personality, enthusiasm, passion and talent continue to impress the clients, photographers and colleagues lucky enough to have him on their team.
Yoichi is based in New York City.
