Photography For a Great Cause

Posted in Beauty, Behind the scenes, commercial photography, Family, Flashes of Hope, hair, makeup, People I like, Photography, volunteer, Work with tags , , , , , , on May 5, 2014 by erichason

I spend most of my days shooting, producing, and marketing myself for fashion and beauty work. I have always allocated part of my time to community service, mostly working with kids. Besides my commitment to hosting foreign exchange students (currently Caterina from Italy) I am the New York Chapter Director for Flashes of Hope. We bring commercial photographers and makeup artists into centers that treat juvenile cancer and photograph the patients and their families.

Last week I brought photographer Dennis Kleiman into Cohen’s Children’s Hospital. Dennis is an extremely talented, very experienced editorial photographer. Dennis and I shared a Dumbo studio ten years ago. Recently Dennis and his wife Kelsy founded Stomping Ground, a successful company that has reinvented school photography. No more stiff, bland, uniform portraits. Stomping Ground brings out the personality of each individual kid.

Again, thank you to Richard, Anna and Dawn from NuBest Salon, Manhasset, NY for providing the hair and makeup to make our models feel and look so beautiful!

A Weekend of Backpacking – photo essay

Posted in Behind the scenes, Comings and goings, Diary, Family, People I like, Photography, Self-portrait with tags , , , , on April 15, 2014 by erichason

A father’s dream when your 17 year old son plans a backpacking trip; 48 hours of quality time with no screens to distract!

We had an amazing weekend, here is the photo essay to prove it!

Sam and my dad coordinated the destination, prepared the equipment, procured the supplies and guaranteed outstanding weather. Turnkey! All I had to do was buy some salami, hot dogs, cheese and powdered milk and load my backpack. Participants in the adventure are myself, my son Sam, my Italian daughter Caterina (foreign exchange student through AFS), my brother-in-law Hil, my niece Miriam and my dad Martin.

I brought along my backup Canon 5D Mk II with a fixed 40 mm pancake lens. I love this lens. It has a very small profile, extremely light, fast enough at 2.8 and a great focal length. Got that?

The trip started off Friday night with a visit to the Museum of Modern Art to attend the opening of an exhibit of Caterina’s work. She was accepted into an art studio class for teens at the museum’s education center. Caterina (from Lerici Italy) is having an incredible year, taking advantage of her exchange experience.

We then had a celebratory Chinese dinner and drove up to a motel near the trailhead for a good night sleep and an early morning start. Caterina claims I snore, but offered zero proof.

Before hitting the trail we had to fortify at the Bright Star Diner. Also needed to make sure our hair was set. Luckily the placemat gave reference to a local attorney in case we ran into some legal issues.

I think the rest of the photos speak for themselves… hydrating at the trail head, headed up to the campsite on the Appalachian Trail, beautiful weather, dehydrated astronaut ice-cream, beautiful vistas, setting up camp, gathering wood, roasting hot dogs, Caterina’s first amore, and a tired but very happy group.

One item of note, it was a strenuous 3 hour hike up to the site. Our gear was not super light. My dad is 79 years old and kept up with the 17 year olds, basically stride for stride. Now that is inspirational!

Flashes of Hope

Posted in Art, Comings and goings, Diary, Family, Life, People I like, Photography, Work with tags , , , , on September 26, 2013 by erichason

Saturday I had the privilege of volunteering for Flashes of Hope, an organization that brings photographers into juvenile cancer treatment centers across the country.

This was my third time shooting for Flashes. Each time has been transformational. The families are loving and strong. I was told many times during the day how grateful they are that I give my time (and talent); that the photos mean so much to them. I am humbled by their graciousness and has a blast photographing them.

Al Capone is a deceased gangster out of Chicago. Hoshi is my cigar chomping vizsla puppy. Can you tell who is who?
Hint: Hoshi is floppy.

New editorial

Here is a new editorial published in The Linen magazine featuring Francesca Vuillemin of Fusion Model Management. My last shoot of 2011. We had a blast. Francesca did an analysis of all the crew’s astrological signs, we were a perfect fit. I am a Gemini, as if you didn’t know. Styled by Julia Kristen, makeup by Hiro Yonemoto, hair by Ayato Yokojima.

New addition to the family…

I don’t want a dog. I have nothing against dogs. They are great… for someone else. Geri wants a dog. Sam really wants a dog. They have a choice, a dog or me. I don’t know what happened. Geri received an email about a litter of vizsla rescues, read me the wiki entry about the breed, gave me sad eyes and in a regrettable moment of weakness I acquiesced.

We picked up Hoshi last night. She is adorable! We are all smitten!

Does 2 cats and a dog constitute a small zoo? How do things like this happen?

Sam and his puppy. One happy teenager.

Hoshi’s siblings

Man’s best friend.

The adoption is complete!

Photographs of the men in my immediate family (and a neighbor).  A photographer’s way of giving thanks to the people

who support and give strength throughout the year.
