Flashes of Hope Photo Shoot – Juvenile Cancer

I love my job.  It is so much fun creating images for my commercial fashion and beauty clients.  I really enjoy working with other creatives to craft images that sell client’s products and services… and I get paid for doing it!

Equally rewarding is the volunteer work I do as the New York Chapter Director for Flashes of Hope, a national charity which brings commercial photographers into pediatric cancer treatment centers to photograph the patients and their families.

Today we had a photo shoot at Cohen’s Children’s Hospital in New Hyde Park, NY.  The photographer was Greg Morris.  NuBest Salon provided a glam squad for the shoot (hair and makeup). We always have an amazing time!   The kids are amazing.  The families give us strength, venerability, hope, and love. It really hammers hope what is truly important in life and puts any of my problems into context and perspective.

For the photographers and glam team, this is what we do every day.  For the families it is really special to be pampered and photographed.  In this day and age of Instagram and disposable photography we are creating photographs that document a critical point in the families’ lives that are treasured.  It is an honor to be able to do this.

Lots of thanks to child life specialist Faye Brick and Richard Piana of nuBest Salon for their continued support.

Here are some behind the scenes from today’s shoot.  Visit the Flashes of Hope website to see samples of the very special images created around the country.

Photography for Iconic Outerwear Brand Member’s Only

Last week packed up my camera, strobes, stands, seamless background paper and headed to the garment center to shoot for outerwear lifestyle brand Member’s Only.  After shooting the collection against seamless paper we set up outside for some additional environmental image shots.  The showroom has a few balconies overlooking W. 40th St. with east and west views which scream Manhattan.  I had a great day with models Gabrielle Covers from Major Model Management, New York, Todd Charles from Q Models NYC and my favorite Czech makeup artist/hair stylist Veronika Robova.  Sidenote,the client styled the shoot with cool footwear from their friends at Jibs Life!

Below are some photos straight out of camera, no retouching.

New Fashion Editorial

I am pleased to share a new fashion editorial I photographed that was just published in The Angle Magazine!  Fashion stylist and creative director Uma and I drew inspiration from Mia Farrow’s character in the Roman Polansky thriller Rosemary’s Baby.

After meeting in Williamsburg, the crew all piled into my 1994 Honda CRV and braved the horrendous traffic on the Staten Island Expressway to eventually make it to our location in the heart of New Jersey.

The model is Elena Kantariia of One Model Management, makeup is Emi Koizumi, and hair is Isaac Davidson of Wigbar.
