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!
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!
Early January I had the pleasure of working with model Ana Marques from Wilhelmina New York. The beauty team was hair stylist Monae Everrett and makeup artist Heidi Paul. Love it when the agency uses my work for the opening picture of the model’s portfolio! Ana was a pleasure to photograph. I hope I have the opportunity to shoot with her in the near future!
Last week I shot a jewelry campaign and catalog. The client cast the beautiful Michaela Vybohova now with Major Model Management, New York. I had worked with Michaela a few years ago for a shearling outwear client. Michaela told me that was one of her first jobs after arriving in NYC. The fun and talented Veronika Robova did an amazing job with hair and makeup!
Veronika is from the Czech Republic, Michaela hails from Slovakia, the reunion and relations between the two states went extremely well except for this minor skirmish with a Makita leaf blower.
The client needed a rush on the retouching and delivery of images in order to print banners for a trade show in Las Vegas he is attending; twenty-four hours later, here are some of the images I delivered. I can’t wait to see photos of the trade show booth (love seeing my photos printed large), catalog and print ads!
I am very pleased to share photographs I shot for a retail client’s fashion eyewear campaign. Brands photographed are Gucci, Miu Miu, Coach, Versace, D&G, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, and others.
Our beautiful model is Megan Martin from Next Model Management, New York. Hair and makeup artist is the talented Angela Ivana who does exquisite beauty work. Rounding out the team is fashion stylist Sara Medhat providing perfect tops to compliment the eyewear we were shooting.
The day was relaxed and fun. Here are samples of images we created for the client!
