Styled by fashion director Mike Stallings, we shot at a single location in Brooklyn. I love the simplicity of the wall, offering a dynamic backdrop to showcase our killer guys and the street style high fashion.
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!
Fashion stylist Jonatan Mejia met in February and started planning to produce and shoot a fashion editorial together. We had a date scheduled for mid March, and then the Covid lockdown made it impossible. When NYC started opening back up we revived our plan.
The editorial, shot in NYC was just published in Awake Revue. Everyone is really pleased with the results. The images are stunning! Viki got the concept and took over!
Fashion credits include Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Channel, Helmut Lang, Desigual, and other luxury brands.
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:
Very proud to share a new fashion editorial I produced and photographed for Lingerie Journal. Model Danique Blaauyendraad from Supreme Management NYC was perfect for this project. Fashion stylist Brittany Lovoi pulled pieces from current collections that complimented the the “New Neutrals”. MUA Marjo-Riitta and hair stylist Monae Everrett did a wonderful job tying into and bringing out the most from each look.
Below are a few looks from the shoot. Please take a look at the complete editorial by clicking on this link: https://thelingeriejournal.com/new-neutrals-photo-editorial/
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!

The concept is a clean set using grey seamless paper rolled up exposing the photo studio’s cement floor giving a bit of an industrial feel. Fashion is denim driven using accessories and set design to tie in non-denim looks. Hair is loose and wind-blown, makeup is clean with strong elements. Lore’s look is very strong, beautiful face, thick, long hair, and a great figure. Her posing and movement is strong, she really knows how to work a look.
