Fashion Editorial

I am please to share my latest fashion editorial published in Fashion 360 Magazine.

The inspiration for the shoot was the 1953 movie “How to Marry a Millionaire” starring Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall. We had two Manhattan locations; The Chester, an upscale restaurant in the Meatpacking District and a luxury apartment in Silver Towers. The balcony of the silver tower apartment had a dramatic, sweeping southern view of midtown and downtown Manhattan as well as the Hudson River and New Jersey.

The models were the beautiful Taylor Burns and Carleen Laronn both from Major Model Management. Fashion editor Ikponmwosa Edorisiagbon styled the shoot, makeup by Shon Michaux-Simon, Hair by Dior Sovaoa, and nails by Elizabeth Garcia.

My son Sam was my photo assistant. Always nice have your teenager listen to you when you ask him to pick something up or go get some coffee.

A Weekend of Backpacking – photo essay

A father’s dream when your 17 year old son plans a backpacking trip; 48 hours of quality time with no screens to distract!

We had an amazing weekend, here is the photo essay to prove it!

Sam and my dad coordinated the destination, prepared the equipment, procured the supplies and guaranteed outstanding weather. Turnkey! All I had to do was buy some salami, hot dogs, cheese and powdered milk and load my backpack. Participants in the adventure are myself, my son Sam, my Italian daughter Caterina (foreign exchange student through AFS), my brother-in-law Hil, my niece Miriam and my dad Martin.

I brought along my backup Canon 5D Mk II with a fixed 40 mm pancake lens. I love this lens. It has a very small profile, extremely light, fast enough at 2.8 and a great focal length. Got that?

The trip started off Friday night with a visit to the Museum of Modern Art to attend the opening of an exhibit of Caterina’s work. She was accepted into an art studio class for teens at the museum’s education center. Caterina (from Lerici Italy) is having an incredible year, taking advantage of her exchange experience.

We then had a celebratory Chinese dinner and drove up to a motel near the trailhead for a good night sleep and an early morning start. Caterina claims I snore, but offered zero proof.

Before hitting the trail we had to fortify at the Bright Star Diner. Also needed to make sure our hair was set. Luckily the placemat gave reference to a local attorney in case we ran into some legal issues.

I think the rest of the photos speak for themselves… hydrating at the trail head, headed up to the campsite on the Appalachian Trail, beautiful weather, dehydrated astronaut ice-cream, beautiful vistas, setting up camp, gathering wood, roasting hot dogs, Caterina’s first amore, and a tired but very happy group.

One item of note, it was a strenuous 3 hour hike up to the site. Our gear was not super light. My dad is 79 years old and kept up with the 17 year olds, basically stride for stride. Now that is inspirational!

Bridal Fashion – Photography Behind the Scenes

I was hired by Jovani to photograph their new bridal fashion collection.

I brought on the ultra creative, hardest working man in fashion, Cliff Hoppus to style the shoot. With limited time Cliff was able to pull together flowers, veils and other accessories to make for a very successful shoot. The location is the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City, NY. It is a fabulous location, beautifully appointed, with lots of shabby chic furniture, peeling paint, rich tones making a great environment to shoot in.

Here are some fun behind the scenes photos of Cliff and my assistant Bin modeling for lighting tests. I will post some of the final images with the real model, Morgan Chelf (IMG) next week.fashion location NYC New York Manhattan Brooklyn Queens assistant hair makeup stylist catalog advertising campaign beauty bridal

Not Beauty or Fashion Photography but…

When the worlds greatest dentist

asks you to take photos for his website, you put fashion, beauty, and everything else on hold and head to the Bronx.

Dr. Robert Steinberger, East Tremont Dental, has been my dentist for longer than I care to admit. Throggs Neck is not exactly convenient to my home in Brooklyn, but he is well worth the trip. I have recommended him to friends and family in Manhattan, Connecticut and New Jersey who faithfully flock to the Boogie Down for their bi-annual checkups. He is that good! Dr. Steinberger originally hails from Brooklyn and has never forgotten his roots. He is honest, caring, smart, and has mad dental skillz. In the unlikely event that I ever move to Alaska, I will still have my teeth cleaned just north of the Whitestone Bridge.

Here are a few photographs I shot of the Doc, not fashion photography, but a thing of beauty.

Looking forward to seeing them up on his website!
