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.
Earlier this fall I had the pleasure of photographing a campaign for jewelry designer Monte Neri. Classic gold and gemstones. It is a really elegant collection. The concept was fairly simple, get some gorgeous models, drape them in Monte Neri, and create the magic!
Models we cast are Anzhela from W/360 and Nianga from Official Model Management.We shot in my New York City studio against a simple beige backdrop. The richness complimented the glowing skin created by collaborator Veronika Robova, hair stylist and makeup artist.
The designs and images are gorgeous! Take a look below, I think you will agree!
I am pleased to share some images from a recent photo shoot for jewelry atelier Zhell. Designer Shell Weinz is a long time collaborator. She is a brilliant creative with a strong sense of style and distinct point of view. Her pieces are unique with a delicate industrial vibe.
Shell and I cast model Sasha Mart with Official Model Management NY. We fell in love with her red hair, freckled, porcelain complexion, and wonderful energy, Another long time, super talented collaborator Veronika Robova provided hair and makeup having the very difficult assignment to make the beautiful Sasha more beautiful.
We shot in studio with a solid white backdrop lit to look grey, The lighting is clean and dramatic to bring out the beauty of the collection.
I am attaching a few images we created that were retouched by the talented Albina Annen.
Fashion stylist Jonatan Mejia met in February and started planning to produce and shoot a fashion editorial together. We had a date scheduled for mid March, and then the Covid lockdown made it impossible. When NYC started opening back up we revived our plan.
The editorial, shot in NYC was just published in Awake Revue. Everyone is really pleased with the results. The images are stunning! Viki got the concept and took over!
Fashion credits include Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Channel, Helmut Lang, Desigual, and other luxury brands.
Last week I got together in my studio with NAHA winning hair stylist Cassie Carey and makeup artist Dmitry Potapov to shoot a beauty test with model Gabriella Wilkens from Women 360 Management. Gabriella has soft, delicate features and long, beautiful, curly, natural hair. We focused on clean makeup and shaping the model’s hair. After we were finished in the studio we went out to the roof for some additional images. We are super pleased with the results. Gabriella’s agency thinks the images are stunning!
I am pleased to report that my New York fashion clients are starting to shoot again. My first shoot since lockdown was June 30 at my fur client’s warehouse. It felt a bit weird returning to set but we all wore masks (except the model of course), did our best to social distance, the space was large and airy with good ventilation and fans to circulate the air.
So far all my work has been at client sites and location. I have not worked in my studio yet but look forward to returning!
I am pleased to share a new beauty editorial for Lucire Magazine featuring fashion model Gee Burridge, Major Models, New York. Gee is a dream to work with. She is gorgeous and knows how to move. NAHA award winning hair stylist Cassie Carey created full, voluminous hair styles using Gee’s thick, natural hair. Makeup artist Dmitri Potapov complemented Gee’s beautiful features and perfect skin with natural, glam looks. The editorial was photographed at Blonde Studios, NYC. It is a gorgeous space and fully equipped with Profoto lighting and all the necessary grip gear. Postproduction courtesy of Dylan Reece, Mr. Retoucher.
A super cute behind the scenes video from a photo shoot with my client Nue by Shani. I love working with Shani Grosz and the team. Shani creates stunning dresses with hidden shape wear that create a perfect silhouette flattering her clients. The first two thirds of the day starts with shooting looks for her line sheet and customer e-commerce usage against white background. We then switch over to the creative, fun part of the shoot powering through multiple look changes on four separate setups. We are clear and focused on what we need to accomplish. Backgrounds and props are planned out and prepared. The biggest challenge for this season was suspending large clocks. The rigging and stabilizing was a bit time consuming but the results made the effort worthwhile!
Enjoy the video!
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.
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!
