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!
Very excited to share this new shoot with fresh face model Emma with Elite New York. Emma is visiting NYC for a week to meet with her bookers and prepare for her launch this fall. I am the lucky photographer to be the first to work with her in New York.
Makeup artist/hair stylist Maria Oviedo and I had a great time working with her. We kept the concept clean and want to accentuate her natural beauty. I think we were very successful! The images are stunning!
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!
A couple of weeks ago I teamed up with hairstylist Cassie Carey and makeup artist JP Ramirez (represented by Blonde.Artists , a fabulous agency) to create some new work for our portfolios. We were working on a sexy boyfriend concept. For this shoot we cast model Emily Van Raay with Women360 Management, New York. I styled the shoot using button downs and sports coat from my closet. Emily supplied the lingerie since I don’t have any in my wardrobe.
The photographs we created exceeded our expectations. The main problem was selecting which images to use! The finishing touches in post production were executed by the fabulous retoucher Albina Annen who shares our vision of enhancing the natural beauty without going overboard.
Below are some of the images we created!
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.
Love this boyfriend themed shoot with model Gee Burridge with Major Model Management, New York. Was originally going to shoot outside but the weather was not cooperating. Decided to create a simple set using three muslin backdrops; one hanging to make a wall, a second for the floor, and a third to throw over props for the model to sit/lean on. Very happy how the shoot turned out. Gee is a great model and worked the clothing. It was tough to select final images. Hair stylist Cassie Carey and makeup artist Dmitry Potapov did a great job creating beauty looks that worked with the clothing and setup. I love the loose hair! When we had a break in the weather we shot a look outside as well. Below are some final selects from the shoot.
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.
I have been collaborating with makeup artist Hiro Yonemoto for many years. Hiro is from Tokyo but lives in New York. He does go back to Japan for work and to visit family.
On my last shoot with him for custom couture client Lee Anderson he brought along a team from a Japanese beauty blog to interview him and film behind the scenes footage of the shoot.
Hiro just sent me a link to the video. It is well produced, fun to see, but I have no idea what they are saying!
Had a great shoot with model Gabrielle Covers of Major Model Management, New York. Client is Dominique, creating luxury intimates for discerning clientele. Fashion stylist for the shoot was Brit Lovoi, hair, makeup and beauty by Veronika Robova. Had a great time photographing this job. The team was on point and the client was thrilled with the images.
I just had a beauty editorial and cover published in Lucire Magazine. The shoot was hair and skin inspired featuring our gorgeous model Anna Van Patten of Women 360 Management, NYC. We photographed the editorial in one day at Blonde + Co Studio, New York. Hair stylist Cassie Carey and makeup artist Dmitri Potapov created beautiful looks. Special thanks to Dylan Reese for postproduction!
