Had a great day shooting beauty with the stunning model Kenz with One Management, New York. Some behind the scenes photos with makeup artist Dani Schacter and hair stylist Tomoko working their magic. They had the tough job of making gorgeous Kenz gorgeous. I look forward to sharing the final selects soon!
My friend Kenny Chan of Full Motion NYC shared a behind the scenes video he shot from my lifestyle fashion photo shoot for shoe client J/Slides Footwear. We had a great shoot, meeting in Central Park 6:30 am on a beautiful June weekday morning. I was surprised how busy the park was at that time; runners, dogs, cyclists, trucks making deliveries. In retrospect I am not sure why I thought Central Park would be quiet.

Last week I had the pleasure of shooting model Sean Biloski, Wilhelmina New York for an activewear campaign that will be featured in Costco internationally.
During the shoot I had fashion stylist Nyree square up against Sean, taking a promotional shot for their upcoming UFC, no holds barred, world championship bout!
I have my money on Nyree. She may give up a considerable advantage on height and weight, but she is quite fast, has a great eye, and very skilled with pins and binder clips!
We had a lot of fun shooting lifestyle images in my studio!
Yesterday, a rainy May New York morning, we had a faux snowball fight, drank fake hot chocolate with real whipped cream, and had a lot of silly fun photographing kids outerwear fashion for BJ’s and Costco.
I love shooting kids (with a camera, of course).
The ham that I am, I had to don a men’s jacket and get into a fun photo with the kids.
Yesterday I stopped by the retail store of my long time client Lee Anderson Couture. Lee creates exquisite custom couture fashion for her discriminating clientele. Unfortunately Lee was not in the store, but got to see some of the images we shot last year in print.
I picked up a couple of postcards that are sent out as promotion, and the in store poster she prints each season.
The model is the stunning Jessica LeBleis from Next Model Management, New York. Jessica totally gets the clothing and concept. Everything looks amazing on her. Makeup artist and hair stylist Hiro Yonemoto with Art Department had the difficult job of making the beautiful Jessica look beautiful!
Special thanks to Wikkie for her beautiful craftsmanship and styling on set!
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!
I love working with my swim client Kuleana! Their swimwear is beautifully designed and cut to compliment a women’s physique. They use beautiful fabric with fun patterns and great colors. We have assembled a great team so the day runs smooth and efficiently. Monae Everrett provides hair and makeup. She gives us a natural beachy beauty look. Below is a photo of model Becky Boggs from State Management New York. Becky is great, giving a variety of looks and nailing it each time. This was our last shoot for the Summer 2018 collection. Can’t wait to start photographing the next collection starting in May! Ironically, next week I will be shooting for a fur client.
Below are a few photos from the day.
