Featured: MOTW – Galyna

Featured Model of the Week (“MOTW”) : Galyna

Matthew Osborne Photography – Model Photographer
This is a new feature to share some of my favourite model photography/ fashion and beauty images from a selection of the best models I have had the pleasure of working with over the last few years, both here in the UK and overseas.  Photos have been captured with various camera equipment and you can see the details by clicking on the images.
Model – Galyna
Location – Uzhgorod, Ukraine

I met Galyna when working out in Ukraine in 2011.  She was a friend of a girl I met in the office and the two of them came to my hotel for some photos.  Galyna doesn’t model in Ukraine and works at the University.  That said, she enjoys having her photo taken so every time I was in town we would hook up for photos.  Over the time of knowing her I shot with a Nikon D700, Nikon D800 and on my last trip a Leica M9.  I think my favourite images were those taken with the Nikon D800 and the amazing Samyang 85mm f1.4 lens.  Some of the photos were made with the Lensbaby Edge 80 tilt lens.  I’m sure you can spot them!

I hope to meet up with Galyna again soon and visit Ukraine next year.  I love Ukraine.  It reminds me of the UK in the 1980s bringing back memories from my childhood.  I love the old cars and the famous Lada!  My first car was a Lada Niva Cossack 4×4 which I had for 6 years.  Amazing car full of character!  I would have one again tomorrow if I could afford a ‘Sunday’ car!  I like the old buildings in Ukraine and the general less developed feel to parts of the country.  It make for an amazing backdrop for photos.  A high percentage of Ukrainian girls could probably model here in the UK as they have the tall slim genes like Galyna.  That and the fact that Ukrainian women dress to impress, whether for work or a night out.  The clothes some girls wore in the office looked similar to what we would see in a nightclub in the UK!  Quite a distraction!  I was amazed there were not more car crashes!!

Here are a few photos from my trips, 2011-2013.
