Here is another image from the recent fashion editorial shot at the Bisazza Flagship Showroom in New York City.
The showroom was an amazing place to shoot. Bisazza manufactures very high end glass tile. They create exquisite patterns with them. I recently found out they have a foundation at there headquarters in Italy outside of Venice. The foundation displays masterful pieces created by top designers that were created for various expositions.
I had a great time with the team making these images!
I am very pleased to share images from a fashion editorial I shot in New York City for the Paris based magazine Prestige International. The lovely model is Lexa from the agency Muse NYC. The fashion stylist was Aaron R. Tucker, make up by Aeriel D’Andrea using M.A.C., and hair by Arturo Swayze. We shot the job in the old Bisazza Showroom in Soho, NY. Recently the showroom relocated to an amazing space on W. 20th St. overlooking the Highline. I am very pleased with the images. I will share one today and will continue to post them over the next week.
In younger days I was quite passionate training in wrestling and karate. Part of the regime was running. I loved to ski as well. Almost 20 years ago I felt some stiffness in my hip. Thinking it was stubborn tendonitis I went to a doctor to have it checked out. Unfortunately the diagnosis was early onset of arthritis, which I have been living with since. I traded in the dojo for a swimming pool and the running shoes for a bicycle. For the past 3 years pilates has kept me in good shape. After a visit to my doctor in June, we decided it was time for a change, and scheduled replacement surgery for December 11, 2014. My work schedule slows down around the holidays. I let my clients know I would be out for 5 weeks and tried to schedule shoots the best I could. I lost a couple of jobs, but not too bad. I was dreading surgery up until I was sitting in the operating room, hooked up to an IV, and the anesthesia knocked me out. When I woke up in recovery I was very happy I had it done and looked forward to recuperating and a better quality of life.
It has been 5-1/2 weeks since surgery. I have been doing physical therapy every day trying my best to get back to work. Yesterday was my first shoot. I was nervous that I would start feeling sore and the joint would fatigue. I felt great! It was nice to get back into the studio. The job was demanding and I felt no pain or tightness. I am looking forward to full recovery and of course more work!
Here is some behind the scenes from yesterday’s shoot for Alice and Trixie. Robin Buss of Muse NYC was our gorgeous model. The last photo of me on the ladder was taken by my assistant at the end of the day!
