Bebushka has many talents. First of all she is now an award winning bilingual singer, producer, director, model.. just a very interesting person to say the least! When I first saw her it was during a class at Neal Hamil model agency school she and I attended at the time, I'd say more for the networking aspect than for the actual courses. I got to class late one day when I noticed one girl who was wearing a baseball cap and underneath had such a beautiful smile with the biggest dimples. I got used to noticing beautiful faces so I never forget one or pass up the chance to appreciate one.
Later when we met, Bebushka invited me to play the lead female actress in a music video she was directing for one of her songs "TEXAS TOAST" off her upcoming visual EP 'A GIRL HAS NO NAME". For me, being from Luhansk, Ukraine, it was a totally unexpected yet exceptional experience to be a part of so of course, I agreed.
Let me just say.. I have already attended the soft premiere where hundreds gathered to watch "TEXAS TOAST" during the Real To Reel Film Festival hosted by Jack Daniels Gentleman's Jack and Omari Hardwick of hit TV Show POWER at the River Oaks Theater and not only was the turn out incredible but the visual was very professionally edited and absolutely lovely.
Now we're all looking forward to the official premiere of A GIRL HAS NO NAME where all 5 visuals to her songs will be screened at the Match Theater August 17th Box#4 at 3400 Main St Houston TX 77002 7PM
From the beginning I knew that I would shoot her one day, as she has perfect facial features, such a soft, feminine body and the most important form of beauty there is.. a charming personality. She's a natural. It's why I decided not to interfere with her image by introducing anything too distracting. She shot in just a plane white button up and black/white underwear. It wasn't about the clothing, it was not about highlighting the makeup when shooting , it was just about Bebushka and her nature
