Late last year I worked with Veronica Montano from Major Model Management, New York (winner of Top Model Latina). After shooting the catalog she put on a few looks and we shot natural light in front of a studio window in order to make some image shots. The client was quite happy… and so was the agency. The photo is the lead image on her online portfolio and on the front of her comp card! Hair and makeup by the talented Veronika Robova.
Once photography stops being fun I am going to quit.
Yesterday I had the pleasure shooting with Lindsay Phenix from Red Model Management NYC and Olga Kubrak from Major Models New York. It was a long day with lots of looks but we keep it light and have some fun in the studio on and off set. At one point Olga accused me of being a very serious photographer; my makeup artist Veronika Robova rolled her eyes. We are professionals, we take our work very seriously, but lets face it, this fashion photography and the object is to have fun making beautiful photos that sell clothing and a lifestyle.
One shoe on, one shoe off… Veronika confuses Olga!
Houston native Lindsay Phenix is inspired by the UT orange and flashes the “hook ’em horns” sign. Unfortunately the Longhorns are 3 and 5 this season. The bbq still kicks ass!
I love shooting for Member’s Only, the iconic outerwear brand from my youth. I remember the cool kids rocking their nylon jackets while I was still wearing the Mighty Mac which would be handed down to my brother when I outgrew it.
The current incarnation is quickly becoming an important lifestyle brand successfully merging retro cool and current hip.
A couple of photos from the day…
