Star Rodriguez is on the verge of becoming one of the best photographers located in the tri-state area, and she is unquestionably the best female photographer in her lane. Originally from the Bronx, Star has since transitioned to New Jersey, where she lives and operates her own studio. Star has come a long way since her days as a model. I wanted to know more about the background of this talented individual, and she was kind enough to share with me some of her story.

Star got into the modeling at the behest of friends and fellow models. She worked with several agencies and many photographers, and gained much knowledge and experience throughout the process. She found modeling to be limited in the opportunities it provided, so ever the entrepreneur, Star decided to move on from modeling and enrolled in school. At ABI Star studied cosmetology, with the goal of one day owning her own salon. She became an expert in hair and makeup, which shows in her exquisite portraits and photos.

Star differs vastly from other photographers. Her experience in modeling and cosmetology lend themselves well to her photography. Star understands what it’s like to be both in front of and behind the camera, so she gives excellent advice to models and aspiring models. She can coach them through the process of shooting, and in so doing creates beautiful works of art that only she can envision. Star is a woman of passion and cannot be tied down to one thing, she must spread her wings and soar. I look forward to seeing what else this bright Star has in store.
