Here are some behind the scenes photos from a beauty editorial I shot Sunday for Fashion Reverie Magazine.
The theme was a nail slumber party. The editor was looking to shoot in a hotel room. Thinking that the location would not look authentic enough, I offered my guest bedroom. Shooting in my house is always a mixed bag… I like not having to travel to a location but having your home turned upside down for a day can be a drag. Thankfully the shoot was low impact, the team was great, and we are all very excited about the images we created. Love to Tiri (Q Models), Violetta (Q Models) and Madison Massey (Major Model Management) as well as T.Cooper – hair and makeup, and Angi Wingle of CND (nails).
Here are some behind the scenes photos. Can’t wait to share the images we created!
I was very pleased to see some of the images we shot in her book.
Once photography stops being fun I am going to quit.
Yesterday I had the pleasure shooting with Lindsay Phenix from Red Model Management NYC and Olga Kubrak from Major Models New York. It was a long day with lots of looks but we keep it light and have some fun in the studio on and off set. At one point Olga accused me of being a very serious photographer; my makeup artist Veronika Robova rolled her eyes. We are professionals, we take our work very seriously, but lets face it, this fashion photography and the object is to have fun making beautiful photos that sell clothing and a lifestyle.
One shoe on, one shoe off… Veronika confuses Olga!
Houston native Lindsay Phenix is inspired by the UT orange and flashes the “hook ’em horns” sign. Unfortunately the Longhorns are 3 and 5 this season. The bbq still kicks ass!
Want to share a new fashion editorial published in the latest issue of Bambi Magazine.
Please note the magazine and the fashion editorial are both NSFW. They both feature nudity. Below are some of the photos from the editorial and you can view the entire story by clicking HERE and scrolling through.
I love the quality of work they publish and very proud to have my photography included.
The story was shot in my New York studio featuring Alyona Shishmareva from Q Model Management NYC. My collaborators are stylist Ikponmwosa Edorisiagbon, makeup artist Wendi Miyaki and hair stylist Elin Nyberg.
I am really pleased with the results! These girls are so beautiful and work really well together. Makeup artist Jackie Sanchez and hairstylist Karen Bishop and I are looking forward to shooting some beauty with these stunning girls!
Here are some of the results… no retouching!
On a cold, snowy, New York City January Sunday I had the opportunity to shoot a fashion editorial
for Prestige International Magazine, published in Paris, distributed internationally.
I was very fortunate to have the beautiful Sofitel New York as a location for the shoot. Due to the popularity of the hotel, dates were tight but the management graciously gave us a luxury suite with a huge patio and killer views and access to beautiful conference rooms and the lobby.
Fashion editor David Zambrana (I shot the opening photo on his website) and I decided on a suiting story. We wanted to book a sexy, cool model with an androgynous look, who better than Britt Linn from Red Model Management? Makeup artist Aeriel Payne, hair stylist Isaac Davidson, and manicurist Naoko Saita were given the enviable task of making the beautiful Britt camera ready!
It was a fun day running around the hotel, giving the guests a behind the scenes look at a fashion photo shoot, and making beautiful photos which I am very proud to share!
I had the opportunity to photograph Miss USA Erin Brady for Aventura Magazine’s June Bridal issue.
Erin was incredible to work with; down to earth, beautiful, fun and game. Fashion stylist Angellika Morton pulled beautiful gowns for the shoot, with wonderful jewelry,accessories and floral arrangements. Makeup, hair, and nails was the talented team of Aeriel Payne, Ayato Yokojima and Noako Saita.
We had a fun day, shot eight looks, and Erin was out by 5:45 to be whisked away to a charity black tie event.
Here are some behind the scenes photos from the day. Can’t wait for the magazine to publish so I can share the final photos!
Sharing a fashion editorial published in And Men Magazine. Long time collaborator Andre Austin styled the shoot which took place in my New York studio. Sean Harju from Soul Artist Management was the model.
And Men is a beautiful oversized magazine published in Australia twice a year and distributed worldwide. The quality of and standards for photography is incredibly high. It is always an honor to have work included in the book.
Andre Austin is a wonderful fashion stylist and a long time collaborator. He has a great aesthetic and has a great sense for styling both men and women. With men he takes classic looks but gives them a whimsical twist which makes you look twice.
I enjoy shooting men’s fashion. In many ways it is much easier than photographing women. Usually there is a lot less going on with hair and makeup, taking 20 minutes to prep and groom a guy. Also the guys just need to look like handsome, cool dudes, which they usually are anyway, we just dress them up a bit!
