Project Model Tee (PMT) is a non-profit organization that provides a platform for fashion models to benefit charitable causes by showcasing their art and encouraging the development of a meaningful personal message. They recently teamed up with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) for their “I Will Listen” campaign. I was connected by a friend to PMT’s founder, Edythe Hughes, who needed a studio to shoot promotional photos for their fundraising event for NAMI. I gladly volunteered my studio, which was taken over by seven models, two makeup artists, two hair stylists, and fashion photographer Sohrab Vahdat for a five-hour shoot. I enjoyed watching the process, assisting when necessary, and taking these behind-the-scenes photos.
