Styled by fashion director Mike Stallings, we shot at a single location in Brooklyn. I love the simplicity of the wall, offering a dynamic backdrop to showcase our killer guys and the street style high fashion.
When Emma arrived at the studio (see previous blog post) she was accompanied by a new friend Hannah Jo, also a fresh face with Elite Model Management New York. While shooting Emma, I pulled makeup artist Maria Oviedo aside and asked her if she wanted to shoot a look with Hannah as well. We had Hannah contact her agent who agreed. Glad we asked… here are some of the results!
Fashion editor Nikko Kefalas and I created an incredible fashion shoot with model Ian Jeffrey – IMG and Creative Talent Management, for Paper Magazine. When agency director sent an email linking the portfolio of model Lizzy Yusuff – Marilyn New York I knew I needed to shoot with her. I sent the portfolio to Nikko, we both fell in love with her, and scheduled a date to work with her.
We used makeup artist Hiro Yonemoto, Art Department NYC who also was the hair stylist. We then created magic in studio. The shoot went so smoothly. No hiccups, no drama… just magic. Selecting the final images was our biggest problem… there were so many amazing photographs to choose from.
Below are some of the final selects. Please visit my website to see more!
Love this fashion editorial and magazine cover I photographed for Veneno Magazine. Fashion stylist and designer Claudio Cina worked with muse Cami Opp, a model with Wilhelmina NYC. I have worked with Cami numerous times for commercial, editorial, and commercial projects. Beauty, hair and makeup was provided by the uber talented and fun Andrea Wilson of Next Artist Management NYC.
This season I had the pleasure and honor of photographing the NYFW show package for SKorpion Management.
The shoot took place over 4 days at my NYC studio. Agency director Shameer Khan was on hand helping with fashion styling and creative direction.
Makeup artist Christina Lancaster and hair stylist Phrenchie were on point with the beauty.
The models were photographed against the same grey painted canvas backdrop. We shot one close up headshot/beauty look and a second full body look. For the guys we asked them to bring in a prop that best expressed and interest, their personality or their background. They brought sporting gear like a basketball, football, skateboard, lacrosse stick, boxing gloves but also books, musical instruments, and an African mask. With the girls we did not use props. Just showing off their beauty.
We had a great time shooting 30 plus models. The images we created were really well received by casting directors helping book the men and women in many top shows.
I am posting some images here but you can see all the photos on my website:
Love seeing my work on a model’s portfolio page on an agency website. Especially if it is an agency as impressive of One Management! Model Kenz Brownn stopped by the studio for a few hours and we got creative. The team consisted of makeup artist Dani Schacter, hair stylist Tomoko Kuwamura, and fashion stylist Brit Cato.
Kenz is stunning and lovely to work with. I am really pleased to have created these images with her and the team!
Very proud to share a new fashion editorial I produced and photographed for Lingerie Journal. Model Danique Blaauyendraad from Supreme Management NYC was perfect for this project. Fashion stylist Brittany Lovoi pulled pieces from current collections that complimented the the “New Neutrals”. MUA Marjo-Riitta and hair stylist Monae Everrett did a wonderful job tying into and bringing out the most from each look.
Below are a few looks from the shoot. Please take a look at the complete editorial by clicking on this link: https://thelingeriejournal.com/new-neutrals-photo-editorial/
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.
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!
I am proud to share photographs from a recent skin care shoot featuring a new face from Elite Model Management New York, Amelia Zerbe. The team created looks using skin care masks/treatments, having fun with fashion and beauty products that hydrate, exfoliate, and soften. The team consists of makeup artist and creative direction by Jamie Dorman, hair stylist Rachel Hopkins, and fashion stylist Britt Lovoi.
