My recent collaboration with stylist Britt Lavoi and makeup artist Jamie Dorman has just been published in Lucy’s Magazine. We chose to work with a pastel color pallet. I created a set design using pink and blue seamless paper and painted cubes. The colors play off each other very well. We selected to work with model Mal Dolgan from MC2 New York. Mal is beautiful, fun and really captured the essence of our playful concept.
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.
Fashion 360 Magazine commissioned me to photograph Ty Hunter for an editorial feature in their April issue. Ty was a long term stylist for Beyonce who recently launched his own activewear collection Ty Hunter by Reflex.
The shoot was scheduled to start after I finished photographing a commercial catalog job. That shoot was very successful, but physically taxing. I was a bit tired after the job. Ty brought a refreshing, positive air into the studio which totally rejuvenated my creative energy. We switched up the set, tweaked the lighting and he being the consummate professional, we quickly shot 5 fabulous looks.
What really struck me about Ty is how genuinely interested he is in other people and their stories. I really enjoyed my time working with him and hope it is not my last time collaborating!

The concept is a clean set using grey seamless paper rolled up exposing the photo studio’s cement floor giving a bit of an industrial feel. Fashion is denim driven using accessories and set design to tie in non-denim looks. Hair is loose and wind-blown, makeup is clean with strong elements. Lore’s look is very strong, beautiful face, thick, long hair, and a great figure. Her posing and movement is strong, she really knows how to work a look.

I am very proud to share a wonderful interview of me by Kimberly E. Stone. Her questions were unexpected and caught me a bit off guard. I think they give insight into who I am, how I got here, and where I am going with my fashion and beauty photography as well as my life in general. She did a nice job selecting which of my photographs to include. Her edit gives a good feel of my body of work!

I am proud to share the cover and editorial story I photographed for InWeston Magazine. The editor requested I produce a fashion swimwear editorial for their summer issue. Immediately I spoke to stylist Ikponmwosa Edorisiagbon who was excited to help out with the project. I was very pleased that model Vanessa Jorge from Major Model Management, New York was available to shoot. I have worked with Vanessa on commercial projects and was looking forward to shooting fun work with her. She is a stunning beauty and a lovely person. The team was complete with talented Emi Koizumi doing a beautiful job with hair and makeup.
The shoot was very easy and smooth. We shot in studio. Everyone was on point!
