When Photographer becomes Fashion Model, and Vice Versa!

For years I have worked regularly with sports and fitness, fashion, and lifestyle model Jam Murphy of Wilhelmina Models, New York. We have become friends as well.  Jam is an incredible model with a beautiful, open spirit. Besides modeling Jam produces music and owns a very cool lipstick brand Ice + Jam. Ice and Jam formulates amazing  products using replenishing ingredients with bold, fun colors to beautify and care for your lips. The company ethos emphasizes sustainability, health and personal empowerment.  With colors such as “Thank You Come Again”, “Lesbehonest” and “Ouch, Ouch, You’re On My Hair!”…

Jam asked me to photograph her modeling her in their new “Empower Your Lips” tee.  I was thrilled to say of course.  She wanted to have some of her friends model as well, but due to scheduling only she was available. After Jam finished being photographed, in  she tried to poach some male models from another shoot, but no luck.  She asked the studio manager if he would model, but Kenny is shy.  Jokingly I offered to model for her.  Jam jumped right on that and the next thing I knew I was on set being styled and photographed by Jam.

Below are screenshots from the Ice + Jam website.  The cotton tee is extremely soft, well priced, and a portion of proceeds are donated to Tostan.org

I may be no Jam, but I think I hold my own in this photo.  If you need a short, older male model, feel free to reach out!

Jeans and Jackets – More Denim

Just completed another denim and jacket shoot for client Driftwood. The clients booked two great models, Pheobe Witney from Wilhelmina New York and Johanna Nault from APM Models.  Makeup artist and hair stylist Veronika Robova gave us a natural look to compliment the collection. We shot at my NYC studio utilizing the cyclorama wall as well as the white brick walls.  Images will be used for website, catalog, advertising and promotional usage.  The collection is fun, sexy and adorable. I love the fit and fun use of embroidery.  The outerwear is very cool as well. The collection sells at Free People, Sundance Catalog, Lord and Taylor, Nordstrom’s, and many other retailers, including their website.

Here are some images from the shoot.  I look forward to seeing them published on the website!

Holiday Inspired Fashion Advertorial

Very pleased with this beautiful photography featuring Brazilian beauty Victoria Lehmann from Elite Model Management, New York. Makeup artist (who also was the stylist on this shoot) Veronika Robova couldn’t resist using a bold red on Victoria’s gorgeous lips.  The full loose hair was courtesy of the talented Alam Ko.

The work was shot in my new studio against a huge cyclorama wall.

Wishing everyone a wonderful, festive holiday season!

Jewelry Ad Campaign – Beauty Photography

Last week I shot a jewelry campaign and catalog.  The client cast the beautiful Michaela Vybohova now with Major Model Management, New York. I had worked with Michaela a few years ago for a shearling outwear client.  Michaela told me that was one of her first jobs  after arriving in NYC.  The fun and talented Veronika Robova did an amazing job with hair and makeup!

Veronika is from the Czech Republic, Michaela hails from Slovakia, the reunion and relations between the two states went extremely well except for this minor skirmish with a Makita leaf blower.

The client needed a rush on the retouching and delivery of images in order to print banners for a trade show in Las Vegas he is attending; twenty-four hours later, here are some of the images I delivered.  I can’t wait to see photos of the trade show booth (love seeing my photos printed large), catalog and print ads!

Photography for Iconic Outerwear Brand Member’s Only

Last week packed up my camera, strobes, stands, seamless background paper and headed to the garment center to shoot for outerwear lifestyle brand Member’s Only.  After shooting the collection against seamless paper we set up outside for some additional environmental image shots.  The showroom has a few balconies overlooking W. 40th St. with east and west views which scream Manhattan.  I had a great day with models Gabrielle Covers from Major Model Management, New York, Todd Charles from Q Models NYC and my favorite Czech makeup artist/hair stylist Veronika Robova.  Sidenote,the client styled the shoot with cool footwear from their friends at Jibs Life!

Below are some photos straight out of camera, no retouching.
