On the Other Side of the Camera!

This winter my friend and former assistant Kentaro Minami visited NYC with his client Mitsukoshi Department Store to photograph events and other assignments. One of the assignments were to create photos of their newly designed shopping bag being used by people. I was quite flattered when he asked me and my family to model for the shoot, which of course includes our Italian exchange student Caterina and our vizsla, Hoshi. Sunday morning we had the crew over for a typical New York breakfast of bagels, lox, and cream cheese, then got down to work: hair, makeup, styling and shooting in my Brooklyn home.

The photos were recently hung in windows at their flagship store in Tokyo. Unfortunately my schedule does not permit me to visit Tokyo and stand next to the window in order to greet my Japanese fans and autograph shopping bags. I am thrilled to have the experience, memories, and photos! I love being on the model side of the camera.

NYC Designer Lee Anderson Part II – the photos

As promised, here are images from the Spring 2014 photo shoot for New York fashion designer Lee Anderson.

We were very fortunate to have the stunning Clara Settje (Trump Model Management) modeling for us. The talented Xtah Weiss did an incredible job with hair and makeup.

This was a pretty straight forward shoot using a white background, a wind machine on Clara’s hair initially, then giving her a more glamorous look the second half of the shoot. Lee always brings incredible shoes and accessories to finish each look.

Clara was incredible bringing each look to life. The shoot was held at my NYC studio in the Flatiron District.

Fashion Campaign

Last week I photographed and advertising campaign for my client Shani Grosz in my Manhattan studio. It was a long day shooting against two set ups, white seamless paper and a painted backdrop with fog turning my studio into a haunted forest. The stunning model, Julia Anisimova from Q Model Management killed it. She had great energy from entering the studio at 7am till the last frame was shot ten hours later. Wendi Miyake provided flawless hair and makeup and was on point though out the shoot.

Here are some behind the scenes photos.
