When Emma arrived at the studio (see previous blog post) she was accompanied by a new friend Hannah Jo, also a fresh face with Elite Model Management New York. While shooting Emma, I pulled makeup artist Maria Oviedo aside and asked her if she wanted to shoot a look with Hannah as well. We had Hannah contact her agent who agreed. Glad we asked… here are some of the results!
Very excited to share this new shoot with fresh face model Emma with Elite New York. Emma is visiting NYC for a week to meet with her bookers and prepare for her launch this fall. I am the lucky photographer to be the first to work with her in New York.
Makeup artist/hair stylist Maria Oviedo and I had a great time working with her. We kept the concept clean and want to accentuate her natural beauty. I think we were very successful! The images are stunning!
I love this shoot with natural beauty Madison DeSilva from Ford NYC. Madison is a dream to work with, perfect skin, gorgeous features and sweet personality. My friend and frequent collaborator, makeup artist and hair stylist Maria Ailen Oviedo enhanced Madison’s beauty keeping the makeup light and subtle bringing out highlights. We played with her lip color and beautiful, thick, long hair. These images were created in my New York photo studio. I am super excited to share the images we created. Check out my website and Instagram to see more stunning photos!
I am really pleased to share my latest fashion editorial I produced that was published in Genlux Magazine.
I collaborated with my friend and art director Alex Palomo. We created a moodboard incorporating floral arrangements into a fashion photo shoot. After solidifying the creative deck we booked fashion stylist Holli Kingsbury with agency ABTP. Holli also wanted to handle the floral styling. Once we worked out the fashion direction we rounded out the team with long time collaborators hair stylist Cassie Carey and makeup artist JP Ramirez.
Once we had a shoot date Chad Thompson of Communa-K reached out to model agencies and submitted a package of talent for us to select from. We had a stunning group of models to chose from but were blown away by Gianni Jones, One Model Management New York, and Trinity Trice, The Industry Model Management NYC. The pairing of these girls took it to another level!
Shoot day was fantastic! I was blown away how the team pulled together and created magic! The images are stunning. I have received so many wonderful compliments. Please take a look at some of the magic we created and visit my website and Instagram account to see more of the work!
Fashion editor Nikko Kefalas and I created an incredible fashion shoot with model Ian Jeffrey – IMG and Creative Talent Management, for Paper Magazine. When agency director sent an email linking the portfolio of model Lizzy Yusuff – Marilyn New York I knew I needed to shoot with her. I sent the portfolio to Nikko, we both fell in love with her, and scheduled a date to work with her.
We used makeup artist Hiro Yonemoto, Art Department NYC who also was the hair stylist. We then created magic in studio. The shoot went so smoothly. No hiccups, no drama… just magic. Selecting the final images was our biggest problem… there were so many amazing photographs to choose from.
Below are some of the final selects. Please visit my website to see more!
A couple of weeks ago I teamed up with hairstylist Cassie Carey and makeup artist JP Ramirez (represented by Blonde.Artists , a fabulous agency) to create some new work for our portfolios. We were working on a sexy boyfriend concept. For this shoot we cast model Emily Van Raay with Women360 Management, New York. I styled the shoot using button downs and sports coat from my closet. Emily supplied the lingerie since I don’t have any in my wardrobe.
The photographs we created exceeded our expectations. The main problem was selecting which images to use! The finishing touches in post production were executed by the fabulous retoucher Albina Annen who shares our vision of enhancing the natural beauty without going overboard.
Below are some of the images we created!
Earlier this fall I had the pleasure of photographing a campaign for jewelry designer Monte Neri. Classic gold and gemstones. It is a really elegant collection. The concept was fairly simple, get some gorgeous models, drape them in Monte Neri, and create the magic!
Models we cast are Anzhela from W/360 and Nianga from Official Model Management.We shot in my New York City studio against a simple beige backdrop. The richness complimented the glowing skin created by collaborator Veronika Robova, hair stylist and makeup artist.
The designs and images are gorgeous! Take a look below, I think you will agree!
I am pleased to share some images from a recent photo shoot for jewelry atelier Zhell. Designer Shell Weinz is a long time collaborator. She is a brilliant creative with a strong sense of style and distinct point of view. Her pieces are unique with a delicate industrial vibe.
Shell and I cast model Sasha Mart with Official Model Management NY. We fell in love with her red hair, freckled, porcelain complexion, and wonderful energy, Another long time, super talented collaborator Veronika Robova provided hair and makeup having the very difficult assignment to make the beautiful Sasha more beautiful.
We shot in studio with a solid white backdrop lit to look grey, The lighting is clean and dramatic to bring out the beauty of the collection.
I am attaching a few images we created that were retouched by the talented Albina Annen.
Love this boyfriend themed shoot with model Gee Burridge with Major Model Management, New York. Was originally going to shoot outside but the weather was not cooperating. Decided to create a simple set using three muslin backdrops; one hanging to make a wall, a second for the floor, and a third to throw over props for the model to sit/lean on. Very happy how the shoot turned out. Gee is a great model and worked the clothing. It was tough to select final images. Hair stylist Cassie Carey and makeup artist Dmitry Potapov did a great job creating beauty looks that worked with the clothing and setup. I love the loose hair! When we had a break in the weather we shot a look outside as well. Below are some final selects from the shoot.
Last week I got together in my studio with NAHA winning hair stylist Cassie Carey and makeup artist Dmitry Potapov to shoot a beauty test with model Gabriella Wilkens from Women 360 Management. Gabriella has soft, delicate features and long, beautiful, curly, natural hair. We focused on clean makeup and shaping the model’s hair. After we were finished in the studio we went out to the roof for some additional images. We are super pleased with the results. Gabriella’s agency thinks the images are stunning!
