Weekly Choice sponsored by UAF Photo Labs 2.11.2022

Feb 15, 2022

We are happy to announce this week’s winner AIBP Weekly Choice Image Competition sponsored by UAF Photo Lab.

Our judge this week is Nino Batista.

Ron “Nino” Batista is a photographer, writer, musician and overall creative whose work is regularly seen in lifestyle publications the world over.

He is regarded as the premier model photography, retouching and artist development coaching educator based in the United States.  Nino is also a Sponsored Educator with UAF Photo Lab.

“Beauty is beauty, and often frighteningly subjective. However, the perception of strength is directly objective. When an image comes across as strong, as powerful, there is something more to the shot than simply beauty. For me, beauty is the delivery as I enjoy experiencing it, but strength is the intent as I enjoy capturing it.”

And the Weekly Choice Winner is…..

Romain Deprick | Maestro VII

Winning image this week is from Romain Deprick of Maestro VII based out of Orange County.

Nino’s comments on this image, “First off, white on white in studio is always tricky, and this is technically perfect in that regard. I love how it’s initially an editorial shot in my eye, until I noticed lingerie around the ankles. Playful and sophisticated.”


Christie Conyer & Ashley Layden | Modern Muse Studio

1st runner up is photography duo Christie Conyer & Ashley Layden of Modern Muse Studio based in Oklahoma City, OK

Nino’s comments, “Lighting shaping is perfect. The anonymous element is also appealing, plus the focal length selection. It all comes together ideally here.”


Cindy Dejesus | Cindy Mari Boudoir

2nd runner up is Cindy Dejesus of Cindy Mari Boudoir based in East Providence, RI

Nino’s comments on this image “This one is all about mood. The vibe and expression are just right, and the rawness of the image is what sells it so well.”

Congratulations to the Weekly Choice Image Competition sponsored by UAF Photo Lab winner Maestro VII. Congratulations to the runner ups Modern Muse Studio & Cindy Mari Boudoir,   We look forward to seeing more amazing work from you and more AIBP members!
