Summer travel: A Puerto Rican exploring the French Riviera, Cinque Terre & Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week


Many thanks in advance for taking the time to go through this proposal.

I’d like to start by sharing with you a little bit of information about myself.
At the beginning of this year, after having lived abroad for 12 years, I decided to leave my job in L.A. and move back home, to Puerto Rico. I wanted to focus on doing what I enjoy doing more than anything else: producing creatively fulfilling content and sharing it. The focus areas of the content I create are fashion, beauty, and travel. The intent of my content is to showcase excellence in design, craftsmanship, and taste— thus the name “Lust For Good: an intense desire for good things”. The name is also intended to be a play on the phrase “lost for good”, with a hint of “wanderlust”, referencing what my life has been thus far and what it, hopefully, will continue to be.
A small town island girl from Cupey, Puerto Rico with an uncontrollable curiosity to explore the rest of the world and the courage to make it happen.
In the three months since I’ve been back, I’ve collaborated with fashion designers, luxury hotels and respectable brands such as El San Juan Hotel, Stella Nolasco, Lisa Cappalli, Ecliptica, Galeria/Novus, Kei Jewelry, Paola Baella, Rita Blondet, and the OL:V Hotel.

I hope you see the value I can add to the brand and business you represent through this proposal, and this becomes only the beginning of a longterm mutually-beneficial relationship.

Kindest Regards,
Sylmarie “Sisi” Rivera Ruiz

On June 12th I’ll be traveling to Europe, starting in the French Riviera, for a three-week-long trip to explore and shoot at the locations named below. This is a great opportunity for me to become your brand ambassador– through my social media and the beautiful imagery and videography, I would be able to create.

June 13th to the 17th. St. Tropez, Cannes, Antibes, Nice, Monte Carlo and Menton.

June 27th to June 30th. Shooting scenery and resort wear: Portofino, Vernazza, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.

June 18th. Shooting at the Royal Ascot opening event. Lifestyle, designer-wear and event scenery.

Sunday June 30th to Thursday July 4th. Shooting streetstyle & events at Haute Couture Week.

Here are my thoughts on what I would like to create and deliver for your brand during this trip. I am open to changes, negotiation and creative collaboration as long as the quality of my work stands.

Showcase the brand’s products as my must-haves while traveling, to always look camera-ready and be able to capture beautiful moments I’ll want to share.

Pre-production: Location scouting, scene design, hair & makeup*, and wardrobe planning.
Production: Photography and videography of the product, me using the branded product or with product placement. Most photos will have identifiable backgrounds from the locations mentioned above.
Post-production: Editing. Image storage and delivery of high-res photos (over 2 Mbs) in .jpeg format and 4K video clips (10-30 seconds long).

My instagram account @lustforgood currently has a following of 18.5K and an engagement rate of 4%, well above average. I’ll deliver to you the best content (in high-res) with license to use in your social media or any other digital format (non-traditional media e.i. display ads, paid social media ads, etc.).
