Cover Girl - Viktoria Dobos

16:06 Des Taylor 0 Comments


Back in 2015, Titan Marketing Manager Ricky Claydon came up with the idea of publishing variant 
photo-covers for the series and I knew the perfect person for the job. I met Viktoria completely by chance during my art exhibition at Orbital Comics, London. I was surprised to find out that she had never modelled professionally before but jumped at the chance to have a bit of fun in front of the camera.

Stunning, enthusiastic, intelligent, ballsy and extremely funny, Vik was a pleasure to work with as we went through 4 different talented photographers in an attempt to get the shot needed for the front cover.
As the clock kept ticking away to our deadline and our editors kept demanding one 'money shot'
I grew frustrated about the whole thing but Vik kept stuffing her face and being laid back about the
whole thing.

In the end I dusted off my trusty Olympus DSLR and sought out a location we could get the shot needed for the cover. Sometimes it's the simplest of things that work out. Like your mums cutlery case, a BB gun, a £15 dress from Boho, my wife's convertible car and a rooftop in Watford.
With literally a 2 days before deadline we delivered what was needed but I also look back at he work of Nathen Atia, Sonesh Joshi, Domantė Kaminskaitė, Simon Thorpe and see what could have been.
Most recently I tapped up ace photographer of the moment Haris NU to take pics of Vik for FRONT magazine. Hopefully his pics will make it into the mag this year. Till then, enjoy!
