Poster Size! Go Big Or Go Home! Postcards Too.

Yesterday I stopped by the retail store of my long time client Lee Anderson Couture. Lee creates exquisite custom couture fashion for her discriminating clientele. Unfortunately Lee was not in the store, but got to see some of the images we shot last year in print.

I picked up a couple of postcards that are sent out as promotion, and the in store poster she prints each season.

The model is the stunning Jessica LeBleis from Next Model Management, New York.  Jessica totally gets the clothing and concept. Everything looks amazing on her.  Makeup artist and hair stylist Hiro Yonemoto with Art Department had the difficult job of making the beautiful Jessica look beautiful!

Special thanks to Wikkie for her beautiful craftsmanship and styling on set!

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!

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!

Denim and Outerwear Catalog Photography

Last week I had the pleasure of shooting for my client Vigoss, a denim and outerwear designer. The client cast great models from Next Model Management, New York and State Management, NYC. We took advantage of some great afternoon natural daylight to shoot looks for their website and catalog.  Makeup artist Veronika Robova gave us great natural hair and makeup which worked perfectly for the concept. This is the first season for their Men’s collection. The jeans, shirts and outerwear look great, so there is no surprise that they are getting great response from the buyers. I look forward to rocking some of the denim myself!

Here are some photos from the day.

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!
