Behind the Scenes Video – Fashion Lifestyle Photoshoot

My friend Kenny Chan of Full Motion NYC shared a behind the scenes video he shot from my lifestyle fashion photo shoot for shoe client J/Slides Footwear.  We had a great shoot, meeting in Central Park 6:30 am on a beautiful June weekday morning.  I was surprised how busy the park was at that time; runners, dogs, cyclists, trucks making deliveries. In retrospect I am not sure why I thought Central Park would be quiet.

Our models were Kianna Stupakoff and Lily Jean, both from Next Models, New York. Although they never met each other, they became best friends, at least for that morning.

Fashion Photography on Location

May and June have been really busy months for me. I have been shooting a lot of catalogs, advertising campaigns, promotional, and social media campaigns.  I even photographed my first wedding for a friend of the family who would not take no for an answer!

Now that we have some beautiful weather in New York I have been shooting jobs outside.  The past 2 weeks I had two shoots that took advantage of this.  The jobs were very different, but both great.

Jewelry and handbag designer Cristina Sabatini creates gorgeous high end pieces. She secured a phenomenal house situated on the water on the North Shore of Long Island. This weekend house was incredible and we had run of the entire property… including the Rolls Royce convertible! The landscaping was gorgeous, outdoor and indoor pools, magnificent decks, and super chill family that hosted us. The beautiful models were Genesis Suero (Miss New York) and Catalina Morales (Miss Puerto Rico). Hair and makeup by my talented dear friend Veronika Robova. The fashion stylist was Dash Armstrong.  The shoot was extremely elegant and upscale.  I love seeing the client beginning to post images on Instagram.  Can’t wait to see the campaign roll out!

Here is a photo of the two models shot by the outdoor pool overlooking the beach and bay.

Yesterday I worked for footwear designer J/Slides.  J/Slides is a fun, comfortable, youthful brand creating quality casual sneakers and shoes.  The client cast two great models from Next Model Management NYC; Lily Jean and Kianna. We met in Central Park at 6:30 am with camera, shoes and clothes and ran around the park taking fun lifestyle images. I was amazed how busy the park was at that hour. People running, biking, walking dogs, supply trucks making deliveries. The models were great.  We made super fun images and video.  I am looking forward to seeing the client’s select. Here is a behind the scenes photo of me with the models shot by my assistant at the end of the shoot.

Kids Fashion Photography, NYC

Yesterday, a rainy May New York morning, we had a faux snowball fight, drank fake hot chocolate with real whipped cream, and had a lot of silly fun photographing kids outerwear fashion for BJ’s and Costco.

Models Adrian from Generation Model Management and Emma from FFT New York killed it.

I love shooting kids (with a camera, of course).

The ham that I am, I had to don a men’s jacket and get into a fun photo with the kids.

Fashion Catalog Photography

Wednesday evening.  Just completed my third day shooting for the early fall McCall’s Pattern Company catalog; two more days to go!  McCall’s creates patterns for home sewers to create their own clothing.  The company has a deep, rich history dating back to 1870! I had the pleasure of working in their studio and touring their catalog archives.  They have all of their past catalogs and is a real history of fashion and trends. A plethora of supermodels have graced the covers!

The amount of preparation and thought that goes into each shoot is really impressive.  I am honored to be entrusted to help execute the team’s vision while adding my personal style to each shoot. The art direction, styling, model casting, makeup/hair and organization is always on point.

It is a thrill to receive the catalog after it is printed.  I love doing photography for this client!

Since there is an embargo on the fashion images I can only show limited images I take specifically to share for social media.  I get approval from the fashion editor prior to posting.

Here are some natural light beauty images of models Sam Vrielink of Wilhelmina New York, myself with model Bamboo (Shine Ibu),  Lauren Macarro of State Management NYC, Karen cutting Lauren’s hair (not) and Anna Vorobyeva Wilhelmina New York in the makeup chair with makeup artist Dawn Brocco and fashion director Karen Duffy.

Can’t wait to shoot children’s fashion tomorrow!

Photography for NYC Knitwear Designer Label and Thread

I love working for New York knitwear designer Label and Thread!  They create beautiful sweaters, scarves and hats, are really great with styling the looks, book great models, and are really fun to work with.  We always use Andrea Wilson of Next Artists for hair and makeup. Andrea is extremely talented and a blast to work with. Her energy keeps the set jumping and her attention to detail makes sure each look is flawless. This season the client booked Dutch model Romy de Grijff from Wilhelmina NY. Romy is a stunning woman and a pleasure to work with.  She made my job extremely easy.

The day started off similar to most.  I arrived at the studio early to start setting up.  I like to be ready to shoot when the client arrives.  This way I am free to spend time helping the client with what they need to prepare for a day of shooting.  During the week another photographer had a job photographing food. My studio manager surprised us with a crate of assorted bags of tortilla chips. There were about 30 bags! Jokingly I asked him what about the guacamole? He came in with a bag of ripe avocados, onion, tomato and limes.  I spent the next 10 minutes making some killer guacamole for the crew and studio staff.  That was a first!

Unfortunately there was no tequila left over. Never too early for shots!

We had a really productive day of shooting.  Below are some of the looks from the F/W18 collection.  I am looking forward to seeing the images live on their website! If you would like to see some of our work from the current season take a look at www.labelandthread.com.

Romy and Andrea love my guacamole!

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!

More photographs from Flashes of Hope shoot

It is a privilege and an honor to work with the families serviced by Flashes of Hope.  As the New York Chapter Director I coordinate bringing professional photographers into pediatric cancer treatment centers to photograph the patients and their families.  We also provide hair and makeup as well.

I am always blown away by the kids and their families.  They are incredibly strong through trying times I hope none of us ever know.  Although there are so many emotions very close to the surface, love is what always comes out.  The amount of thanks and gratitude that we volunteers receive for something we do every day is such a reward.

The grace that the families share centers me until the next Flashes of Hope photo shoot!

Below are photos taken by volunteer photographer Greg Morris of me goofing around with a younger brother of one of the patients.
