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.
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 a fashion editorial entitled “Boy Charm” I photographed for Basic Magazine. The photo shoot was styled by Brit Cato and took place in my NYC studio. Hair and makeup was beautifully executed by the talented and super fun Andrea Wilson of Next Artist Management, New York. Our model is the gorgeous Hayden Graye from State Management NYC. Hayden has an incredible look, stunning features and that amazing hair cut.
Brit pulled fashion from current collections of designers Land of Distraction, Sandro Paris, Donrad Duncan, Erdem, Likoba, Gola, Selected Homme and others.
Below is an select photo from the editorial. You can click on the link below to see the entire editorial.
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 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!
Fashion 360 Magazine commissioned me to photograph Ty Hunter for an editorial feature in their April issue. Ty was a long term stylist for Beyonce who recently launched his own activewear collection Ty Hunter by Reflex.
The shoot was scheduled to start after I finished photographing a commercial catalog job. That shoot was very successful, but physically taxing. I was a bit tired after the job. Ty brought a refreshing, positive air into the studio which totally rejuvenated my creative energy. We switched up the set, tweaked the lighting and he being the consummate professional, we quickly shot 5 fabulous looks.
What really struck me about Ty is how genuinely interested he is in other people and their stories. I really enjoyed my time working with him and hope it is not my last time collaborating!

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.
