Tainted Love by Mario Peña

NYC and LA based photographer Mario Peña has gone from strength to strength after his debut on Ben Trovato about a year ago, a feature that actually lead to a great collaboration with Elite Model Management in NYC. Now he’s back with his first ever exclusive for us, the warm and vibrant Tainted Love. The story features the beautiful Katie Flanigan with Click LA, who was styled by Van Van Picz, and had make up done by Devin Joplin.

Mario says this about the story: “- The inspiration for the story comes from two sources, an interesting love story that I had in NY, and the song “If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray.

On a general basis, Mario gets his inspiration from movies, music, love and life, and he always keeps his note book close to note down ideas that might pop up.
