Brandon Stanton moved to New York in 2010. As an amateur photographer, he was fascinated by the crowds of characters throughout the city. He began to take street portraits of the people he met and share them in an album on his timeline named, Humans of New York.
As his photos started to gain a following, he created a Facebook Page that started a movement. There are “Humans of …” Facebook Pages for nearly every major city in the world, while the HONY photographer himself is something of a celebrity on the streets of New York.
Brandon’s Facebook community of more than 2.3 million people is more than just an audience. Together, they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity and have propelled Brandon to become a New York Times bestselling author after he published a book of his work in 2013.

This is the story of Michelle's day with us. Starting from the moment she awoke on the day and showing her preparing for her shoot, arriving, having her hair and makeup done, shooting, selecting shots and then opening her box of mounted prints. This is the story of a mum having her dream shoot with photos that she will look back on for the rest of her life.
Michelle shot a mix of fashion, glamor and boudoir photography styles during her day with us. This video will show you what happens during your shoot, hair and makeup, styling.
I've never done real stop-motion, but as I was culling these silhouette images I realized they looked like stop-motion and would make a fun little video! I set the fade to 0 and the transition speed to .5 seconds and added some music.
