“Here is a new Test Shot segment with Kyra Santoro. If you are not familiar with her already, then you’re welcome. I remember meeting her at a Long Beach Agenda Show. It is always rad when girls are just cool, regardless of their status or their looks or whatnot. I appreciate a down-to-earth girl. We had exchanged info and set up a date to shoot. Fortunate for me, I have some really nice friends. Like Evidence who let me shoot some flicks of her in his personal studio at his Venice pad. I thought it was an interesting contrast, since most people have just shot her in swimsuits on a beach somewhere. Changing the setting up for her was fun. It was definitely awesome shooting around the studio and watching her dig through vinyl.” – Van Styles
