Kenz B, One Management, New York Fashion Beauty Photos

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!

Family Portrait Photography

Saturday I had the opportunity to photograph a wonderful family from Long Island celebrating the parents/grandparent’s 50th wedding anniversary. This is a departure from my normal commercial fashion and beauty work, but was refreshing and welcome!  I love photographing people! We met at my studio.  I was set up and ready to go.  We had 6 adults and 4 kids individually and in various combinations.  There was so much love and everyone was so comfortable. The kids were amazing. All I had to say is “get closer” or “pile on dad” and magic happened! I used both strobes and natural light to vary the feel of the images. My favorite moment was when the kids started to get really animated, running up the curved cyclorama wall and photo bombing.

I got lots of wonderful compliments.  The ultimate was in and email received the next day wanting to make the day an annual event!

Below is the last frame of the day with me jumping in!

Behind the Scenes Video – Fashion Lifestyle Photoshoot

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.

Our models were Kianna Stupakoff and Lily Jean, both from Next Models, New York. Although they never met each other, they became best friends, at least for that morning.

Photography for NYC Knitwear Designer Label and Thread

I love working for New York knitwear designer Label and Thread!  They create beautiful sweaters, scarves and hats, are really great with styling the looks, book great models, and are really fun to work with.  We always use Andrea Wilson of Next Artists for hair and makeup. Andrea is extremely talented and a blast to work with. Her energy keeps the set jumping and her attention to detail makes sure each look is flawless. This season the client booked Dutch model Romy de Grijff from Wilhelmina NY. Romy is a stunning woman and a pleasure to work with.  She made my job extremely easy.

The day started off similar to most.  I arrived at the studio early to start setting up.  I like to be ready to shoot when the client arrives.  This way I am free to spend time helping the client with what they need to prepare for a day of shooting.  During the week another photographer had a job photographing food. My studio manager surprised us with a crate of assorted bags of tortilla chips. There were about 30 bags! Jokingly I asked him what about the guacamole? He came in with a bag of ripe avocados, onion, tomato and limes.  I spent the next 10 minutes making some killer guacamole for the crew and studio staff.  That was a first!

Unfortunately there was no tequila left over. Never too early for shots!

We had a really productive day of shooting.  Below are some of the looks from the F/W18 collection.  I am looking forward to seeing the images live on their website! If you would like to see some of our work from the current season take a look at www.labelandthread.com.

Romy and Andrea love my guacamole!

Fashion/Beauty with Wilhelmina Model Ana Marques

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!

Denim and Outerwear Catalog Photography

Last week I had the pleasure of shooting for my client Vigoss, a denim and outerwear designer. The client cast great models from Next Model Management, New York and State Management, NYC. We took advantage of some great afternoon natural daylight to shoot looks for their website and catalog.  Makeup artist Veronika Robova gave us great natural hair and makeup which worked perfectly for the concept. This is the first season for their Men’s collection. The jeans, shirts and outerwear look great, so there is no surprise that they are getting great response from the buyers. I look forward to rocking some of the denim myself!

Here are some photos from the day.

Jewelry Ad Campaign – Beauty Photography

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!
