When we asked the photographer about how he comes up with ideas for his photos, he said he always begins by creating a mood board. He explained that he looks for inspiration to come up with a concept. Once he has the concept, he contacts models who match the vision. Then, they work together to plan the location, time, and the clothes or props needed to make the idea come to life.

I think this is one of the most ingenious of the lot. Weird pic, but cool usage of inexpensive set and effects,

Geo Leon's photoshoots usually last 1 to 2 hours, depending on the ideas and how they're carried out. He often gets help from his friend Chris or his wife Michelle during the shoots. After the photoshoot, he spends 1.5 to 3 hours editing and retouching each photo.

When discussing dealing with creative block, the photographer shared, "I sometimes push myself too hard and create so much that I feel exhausted. Like any artist, I always search for new sources of inspiration. This could involve watching movies, playing video games, or exploring digital art online. Having friends in the same profession who can inspire and motivate you is always a great help."

In all of them the people are looking like plastic dolls. I don''t like them, maybe for a fairy book as illustrations. Too much filters ....

Use of intense color I love it. If he is uses filters he's got way more talent than the rest of us humans.

If you are going to touch up an image so much it looks like AI, you might as well start with AI. Have we really forgotten what humans actually look like?

So much hate because he is phenomenally talented. Clearly some people can't take decent pictures on their own. She is standing in a hedge and has tattoos thus blending. Though I will give you the flowers don't seem to come from the hedge she is standing in. I'm just sad hate got the first comment.

Ones like this make me wonder. Did they scout this location, or just stroll around town looking for inspiration?
