When Photographer becomes Fashion Model, and Vice Versa!

For years I have worked regularly with sports and fitness, fashion, and lifestyle model Jam Murphy of Wilhelmina Models, New York. We have become friends as well.  Jam is an incredible model with a beautiful, open spirit. Besides modeling Jam produces music and owns a very cool lipstick brand Ice + Jam. Ice and Jam formulates amazing  products using replenishing ingredients with bold, fun colors to beautify and care for your lips. The company ethos emphasizes sustainability, health and personal empowerment.  With colors such as “Thank You Come Again”, “Lesbehonest” and “Ouch, Ouch, You’re On My Hair!”…

Jam asked me to photograph her modeling her in their new “Empower Your Lips” tee.  I was thrilled to say of course.  She wanted to have some of her friends model as well, but due to scheduling only she was available. After Jam finished being photographed, in  she tried to poach some male models from another shoot, but no luck.  She asked the studio manager if he would model, but Kenny is shy.  Jokingly I offered to model for her.  Jam jumped right on that and the next thing I knew I was on set being styled and photographed by Jam.

Below are screenshots from the Ice + Jam website.  The cotton tee is extremely soft, well priced, and a portion of proceeds are donated to

I may be no Jam, but I think I hold my own in this photo.  If you need a short, older male model, feel free to reach out!

Lee Anderson Fall 15 Fashion Campaign

Very excited that my client Lee Anderson has posted the images we shot for her Fall 2015 collection.  We shot the job at her beautiful home in West Hampton.  We had an incredible day.  Hartje Andresen from Trump Model Mangement, NYC looked stunning in Lee’s designs.  Vanessa Weiss did a fab job with hair and makeup.

This afternoon I will be on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.  I am going to pop by her store on Lexington Avenue store and see if she has printed a poster yet.  I love seeing my photography printed BIG!!!

Fashion Editorial Photography

Shot these beauties for fashion editorial to be published in the October/November issue of Today’s Black Women magazine.  Due to the image embargo I cannot show any of the fashion looks.  After the shoot I had the models stand by my studio window and took some natural light portraits.

Flashes of Hope – photo shoot

I am very proud to be the New York Chapter Director for Flashes of Hope, a national organization that brings commercial photographers into treatment centers for juvenile cancer to photograph the patients and their families.

Yesterday I coordinated a shoot at Cohen’s Children’s Hospital, New Hyde Park, NY.  I brought in my photographer friend and neighbor Greg Morris to shoot.  This is Greg’s second time working with Flashes of Hope.  I have also partnered with nuBest  Salon and Spa to provide hair and makeup.  The nuBest team has been amazing.

We come into the hospital, create a studio set up, groom our subjects with hair and makeup, and take pictures.

What none of us are prepared for or expect is how appreciative the families are.  I am still blown away by the thanks I get for providing photos and how meaningful the photos are to the families.  Actually, it is us that should be thanking the families for the opportunity to work with them.  How often do photographers have a subject step onto a set and give them genuine emotion… joy, sadness, fear, optimism, strength, and love… mostly love?

It is an emotional day for us, which keeps us coming back for more!

Here are some behind the scenes photos from yesterday’s photo shoot:
