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.
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.
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!
When Emma arrived at the studio (see previous blog post) she was accompanied by a new friend Hannah Jo, also a fresh face with Elite Model Management New York. While shooting Emma, I pulled makeup artist Maria Oviedo aside and asked her if she wanted to shoot a look with Hannah as well. We had Hannah contact her agent who agreed. Glad we asked… here are some of the results!
Very excited to share this new shoot with fresh face model Emma with Elite New York. Emma is visiting NYC for a week to meet with her bookers and prepare for her launch this fall. I am the lucky photographer to be the first to work with her in New York.
Makeup artist/hair stylist Maria Oviedo and I had a great time working with her. We kept the concept clean and want to accentuate her natural beauty. I think we were very successful! The images are stunning!
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. Check out my website and Instagram to see more stunning photos!
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 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!
Earlier this fall I had the pleasure of photographing a campaign for jewelry designer Monte Neri. Classic gold and gemstones. It is a really elegant collection. The concept was fairly simple, get some gorgeous models, drape them in Monte Neri, and create the magic!
Models we cast are Anzhela from W/360 and Nianga from Official Model Management.We shot in my New York City studio against a simple beige backdrop. The richness complimented the glowing skin created by collaborator Veronika Robova, hair stylist and makeup artist.
The designs and images are gorgeous! Take a look below, I think you will agree!
I had an incredible shoot with model Honglin with Major Model Management. She is a striking beauty with adorable blond bangs! Makeup artist and hair stylist Veronika Robova had the enviable job of making her more beautiful.
My assistant VC Dong brought her camera and shot some behind the scenes video that was perfectly edited by Yuan Tang.
Check out the video! I will post photos soon!
