Back from vacation in Germany visiting close friends. I have been really busy shooting catalog for women’s wear, swim, children’s swim, and eyeglass clients.

Yesterday I spent the day working for LIM College.  I hosted  photoshoots at my studio for two styling classes.  Yesterday I had 4 models and 7 groups of students, each group shooting 3 or 4 looks.  I really enjoy shooting these tests.  The students are really enthusiastic and everybody has a great time.

In the middle of the morning session I came down with a stomach bug… I will spare you the ugly details.  Much to my amazement (and the crew) I rallied for the afternoon session and was back to my playful self.

Here is a photo of beautiful Gina (Julia Roberts, right?) with Red.  She has only been modeling for 2 months but worked like a seasoned pro!  Also some photos of the students and myself channeling our inner Gina, and my assistant Bin taking video of Gina on her i-phone. fashion, photographer, photograph, collection, photography, campaign, adverstising, art, models,lifestyle, e-commerce, couture, ecommerce, beauty, celebrity, cover, makeup, hair, lookbook, catalog, swimwear, t-shirt, salon, swimwear, linesheet, men, women, cardigan, sweater, line sheet, glasses, Major, Ford, Fusion, skiwear, men, NBA, women, bathing suits, spa, Miami, Florida, Aventura, New York, NYC, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Hershey,portrait, lingerie, NYC, New York, Brooklyn, Manhattan, photography, Muse, Avant Garde, t-shirt, tshirt, tee shirt, shoes, Japan, Tokyo,jewelry, BF7XVE9M4D4M


A day of hair

Posted in Beauty, Behind the scenes, Fashion, Photography, workshop with tags , , , , , on November 24, 2011 by erichason

I was hired to photograph for a hair styling workshop.  All participants flew in from Japan to train with top stylist Michio Shiramizu.  Tuesday we had a model casting and selected 6 beautiful models from Major, MC2 and Fentonmoon.  The workshop took place the headquarters of Milbon USA located in the heart of Soho.  The objective was to shoot in the street but the weather report was ominous.  I set up studio equipment as a back up.

None of the students spoke English, the models and I don’t speak Japanese.  Charades was the lingua-franca.  Smile needs no translation.
