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.
