New Fashion Editorial Photographed In My NYC Studio

Fashion stylist Holli Kingsbury, represented by Timothy Priano, came to me with the concept of a spring color story with a model on a trampoline on the rooftop of my studio. I was really excited about the idea, but due to schedules we had to shoot the upcoming Friday. We booked my studio and started planning.

Holli and I both agreed we needed a model with a dance background. We couldn’t have just any girl bouncing on a trampoline. She needed to have experience posing and nailing expression midair. Also she needed endurance. I immediately thought of Sophie Olszak. Last July we shot a fur catalog together. She is gorgeous, and a pleasure to work with. I remembered that she danced for the Brooklynettes. The Brooklyn Nets were in the playoffs so I knew she would be in town. I messaged her on Instagram. She was in between agencies and was excited for the shoot.

We booked hair stylist Andrea Wilson and her good friend makeup artist Sandradene Fearon and the team was set!

The morning of the shoot the sky was gray and there was a significant chance of rain. I decided to set up the studio as a backup for the likelihood of a torrential downpour…which occurred.

I used an Elinchrom Fresnel Spot 30 to create a hard light and a strong shadow. The paper was rigged across the ceiling and down the wall so I could shoot low and not have the studio ceiling showing. It was a fun setup!

As soon as Sophie was finished with makeup and hair, dressed in her first look and started jumping on the trampoline I knew we had magic. Immediately Holli whispered in my ear we booked the perfect model.

The shoot went without a hitch. The hardest part of the shoot is choosing images!

I placed the story titled “Airborne” in New York based Spirit and Flesh Magazine. Please click on the magazine or the following links to see all images from the story! Website or my Instagram Account!

Beauty Photography with Stunning Model Madison DeSilva, Ford New York

I love this shoot with natural beauty Madison DeSilva from Ford NYC. Madison is a dream to work with, perfect skin, gorgeous features and sweet personality. My friend and frequent collaborator, makeup artist and hair stylist Maria Ailen Oviedo enhanced Madison’s beauty keeping the makeup light and subtle bringing out highlights. We played with her lip color and beautiful, thick, long hair. These images were created in my New York photo studio. I am super excited to share the images we created.

New Fashion Editorial Published in Genlux Magazine.

I am really pleased to share my latest fashion editorial I produced that was published in Genlux Magazine.

I collaborated with my friend and art director Alex Palomo. We created a moodboard incorporating floral arrangements into a fashion photo shoot. After solidifying the creative deck we booked fashion stylist Holli Kingsbury with agency ABTP. Holli also wanted to handle the floral styling. Once we worked out the fashion direction we rounded out the team with long time collaborators hair stylist Cassie Carey and makeup artist JP Ramirez.

Once we had a shoot date Chad Thompson of Communa-K reached out to model agencies and submitted a package of talent for us to select from. We had a stunning group of models to chose from but were blown away by Gianni Jones, One Model Management New York, and Trinity Trice, The Industry Model Management NYC. The pairing of these girls took it to another level!

Shoot day was fantastic! I was blown away how the team pulled together and created magic! The images are stunning. I have received so many wonderful compliments. Please take a look at some of the magic we created and visit my website and Instagram account to see more of the work!

Fashion Photography with Lizzy Yusuff

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 photography in NYC is opening up!

I am pleased to report that my New York fashion clients are starting to shoot again.  My first shoot since lockdown was June 30 at my fur client’s warehouse.  It felt a bit weird returning to set but we all wore masks (except the model of course), did our best to social distance, the space was large and airy with good ventilation and fans to circulate the air.

So far all my work has been at client sites and location.  I have not worked in my studio yet but look forward to returning!

Here are a couple of portraits of my models from yesterday.  I am not able to post the client’s photos but shot these for social media purposes: Alexis Morgan, APM New York;  Amanda Mondale, W/360 NYC

NYC Fashion Photoshoot featured on Japanese Blog

I have been collaborating with makeup artist Hiro Yonemoto for many years.  Hiro is from Tokyo but lives in New York.  He does go back to Japan for work and to visit family.

On my  last shoot with him for custom couture client  Lee Anderson he brought along a team from a Japanese beauty blog to interview him and film behind the scenes footage of  the shoot.

Hiro just sent me a link to the video.  It is well produced, fun to see, but I have no idea what they are saying!

The model Kate Petrova from Q Management New York is stunning and the fashion was gorgeous.  Below is the video for a look at the shoot!
