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.
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.

Last month created a beauty photo shoot with Myriem, a gorgeous Tunisian model represented by Ford Models, New York. We decided to use flowers to enhance the shoot and create a story, forgoing jewelry, fashion or accessories. Makeup artist Jonet Williamson created strong, clean looks and hair stylist Tamara Laureus created a soft, elegent flow. The shoot was held at my studio in West Chelsea, close to the Highline Park, NYC.
Here are some images we created! I love the blue background!

The New York weather doesn’t feel like mid-December but my new work is adding a chill to The Angle Magazine.
I am quite pleased with my new fashion editorial “Silence of the Lamb”. It was wonderful collaborating with creative director and stylist Julia Morris, makeup artist Marjo-Ritta Harkonen, Hair stylist Isaac Davidson for Artists at Wilhelmina, and our beautiful model Irene Stepanenko of Q Model Management, NYC.
Shot these beauties for fashion editorial to be published in the October/November issue of Today’s Black Women magazine. Due to the image embargo I cannot show any of the fashion looks. After the shoot I had the models stand by my studio window and took some natural light portraits.
