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

Behind the Scenes Video From Recent Fashion Photo Shoot In My NYC Studio

A super cute behind the scenes video from a photo shoot with my client Nue by Shani.  I love working with Shani Grosz and the team.  Shani creates stunning dresses with hidden shape wear that create a perfect silhouette flattering her clients. The first two thirds of the day starts with shooting looks for her line sheet and customer e-commerce usage against white background.  We then switch over to the creative, fun part of the shoot powering through  multiple look changes on four separate setups. We are clear and focused on what we need to accomplish. Backgrounds and props are planned out and prepared. The biggest challenge for this season was suspending large clocks.  The rigging and stabilizing was a bit time consuming but the results made the effort worthwhile!

Enjoy the video!

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!

Family Portrait Photography

Saturday I had the opportunity to photograph a wonderful family from Long Island celebrating the parents/grandparent’s 50th wedding anniversary. This is a departure from my normal commercial fashion and beauty work, but was refreshing and welcome!  I love photographing people! We met at my studio.  I was set up and ready to go.  We had 6 adults and 4 kids individually and in various combinations.  There was so much love and everyone was so comfortable. The kids were amazing. All I had to say is “get closer” or “pile on dad” and magic happened! I used both strobes and natural light to vary the feel of the images. My favorite moment was when the kids started to get really animated, running up the curved cyclorama wall and photo bombing.

I got lots of wonderful compliments.  The ultimate was in and email received the next day wanting to make the day an annual event!

Below is the last frame of the day with me jumping in!

Fashion Photography on Location

May and June have been really busy months for me. I have been shooting a lot of catalogs, advertising campaigns, promotional, and social media campaigns.  I even photographed my first wedding for a friend of the family who would not take no for an answer!

Now that we have some beautiful weather in New York I have been shooting jobs outside.  The past 2 weeks I had two shoots that took advantage of this.  The jobs were very different, but both great.

Jewelry and handbag designer Cristina Sabatini creates gorgeous high end pieces. She secured a phenomenal house situated on the water on the North Shore of Long Island. This weekend house was incredible and we had run of the entire property… including the Rolls Royce convertible! The landscaping was gorgeous, outdoor and indoor pools, magnificent decks, and super chill family that hosted us. The beautiful models were Genesis Suero (Miss New York) and Catalina Morales (Miss Puerto Rico). Hair and makeup by my talented dear friend Veronika Robova. The fashion stylist was Dash Armstrong.  The shoot was extremely elegant and upscale.  I love seeing the client beginning to post images on Instagram.  Can’t wait to see the campaign roll out!

Here is a photo of the two models shot by the outdoor pool overlooking the beach and bay.

Yesterday I worked for footwear designer J/Slides.  J/Slides is a fun, comfortable, youthful brand creating quality casual sneakers and shoes.  The client cast two great models from Next Model Management NYC; Lily Jean and Kianna. We met in Central Park at 6:30 am with camera, shoes and clothes and ran around the park taking fun lifestyle images. I was amazed how busy the park was at that hour. People running, biking, walking dogs, supply trucks making deliveries. The models were great.  We made super fun images and video.  I am looking forward to seeing the client’s select. Here is a behind the scenes photo of me with the models shot by my assistant at the end of the shoot.

Photographing Strong Kids and Families

All my adult life I have been doing volunteer work with kids: literacy training in public schools, Big Brother volunteer, hosting foreign exchange students through AFS (ongoing). Five years ago I stumbled upon Flashes of Hope. The national organization photographs patients in pediatric cancer treatment centers and their families.  I am currently the New York Chapter Director.

I was initially attracted to the organization because it focused on two of my passions: children and photography. I had no idea how meaningful our work is to the families we serve. First, it is a fun diversion. We have hair and makeup and make a really big deal to make sure the subjects feel very special. We bring a lot of levity onto the “set” (a backdrop and lighting equipment squeezed into whatever spare space we can find). The families are so grateful for the photos. For the kids who get better, they document a monumental time in the life.  For the families who lose kids the photos are loving memories that are cherished.

I started off just as a photographer.  I was extremely moved by the work we were doing. I volunteered as Chapter Director so I can be more involved on a regular basis. Usually I am organizing the shoots, booking hair and makeup and a photographer.  I love sharing the experience with colleagues. It is incredible how emotional it is for all involved.

Tuesday I decided to take a turn as a photographer. It was a particularly difficult shoot emotionally since I was told that 4 of the 5 kids were under palliative care. The families are so generous with their appreciation and emotion. Lots of love.  I am still feeling the effect from the day.

A big  THANK YOU to Richard Piana and nuBest Salon for providing hair and makeup bringing all the more beauty into the shoot. Also a real appreciation for all Child Life specialists. Every one of you are angels.
