Last week I got together in my studio with NAHA winning hair stylist Cassie Carey and makeup artist Dmitry Potapov to shoot a beauty test with model Gabriella Wilkens from Women 360 Management. Gabriella has soft, delicate features and long, beautiful, curly, natural hair. We focused on clean makeup and shaping the model’s hair. After we were finished in the studio we went out to the roof for some additional images. We are super pleased with the results. Gabriella’s agency thinks the images are stunning!
I am pleased to share a new beauty editorial for Lucire Magazine featuring fashion model Gee Burridge, Major Models, New York. Gee is a dream to work with. She is gorgeous and knows how to move. NAHA award winning hair stylist Cassie Carey created full, voluminous hair styles using Gee’s thick, natural hair. Makeup artist Dmitri Potapov complemented Gee’s beautiful features and perfect skin with natural, glam looks. The editorial was photographed at Blonde Studios, NYC. It is a gorgeous space and fully equipped with Profoto lighting and all the necessary grip gear. Postproduction courtesy of Dylan Reece, Mr. Retoucher.
Love this fashion editorial and magazine cover I photographed for Veneno Magazine. Fashion stylist and designer Claudio Cina worked with muse Cami Opp, a model with Wilhelmina NYC. I have worked with Cami numerous times for commercial, editorial, and commercial projects. Beauty, hair and makeup was provided by the uber talented and fun Andrea Wilson of Next Artist Management NYC.
I am really pleased to share beauty images I photographed at Blonde & Co. Our gorgeous model is Kambree Dalton from agency One.1. The hair stylist is Cassie Carey, who was just awarded the prestigious “Newcomer of the Year” by NAHA (North American Hairstyling Awards). Makeup artist on this photo shoot is Deney Adam who is represented by Blonde Artists.
Below are images we created. I look forward to future collaborations with the team!
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:
Last week I booked models Agnes Kudukis and Lauren Forge from One Management, NYC for a beauty/fashion shoot in NYC. The shoot was initiated at a meeting with makeup artist Amy Palmer. We both admire each others work and decided to shoot together. Amy pulled in fashion stylist and designer Jillian Papas and I brought hair stylist Tomoko Kuwamura to help create some magic.
We had a fun day shooting together and made some beautiful images. I shared retouched work with the team this morning. An hour later I checked the models’ online portfolios and found that our photos were already added to their books. The agency wasted no time!
Here are screenshots from the agency website!
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!
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.
I love Lee Anderson. She is a smart, funny, thoughtful, interesting woman who happens to be a brilliant designer. Lee’s garments have a unique look with brilliant cuts combined with exquisite fabric which keep her discriminating clientele loyal to her work. Lee always books stunning models which make my job very easy. This is our second shoot with beauty Jessica Le Bleis from Next Model Management. Hiro Yonemoto did an exquisite job with hair and makeup.
Below are a few images from the shoot. Please take a look at her website to see more of my photography from previous photo shoots. www.leeandersoncouture.com
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!
