I had the opportunity to photograph Miss USA Erin Brady for Aventura Magazine’s June Bridal issue.

Erin was incredible to work with; down to earth, beautiful, fun and game. Fashion stylist Angellika Morton pulled beautiful gowns for the shoot, with wonderful jewelry,accessories and floral arrangements. Makeup, hair, and nails was the talented team of Aeriel Payne, Ayato Yokojima and Noako Saita.

We had a fun day, shot eight looks, and Erin was out by 5:45 to be whisked away to a charity black tie event.

Here are some behind the scenes photos from the day. Can’t wait for the magazine to publish so I can share the final photos!

Men’s fashion editorial – And Men Magazine

Posted in commercial photography, Editorial, Fashion, hair, lighting, makeup, model, Photography with tags , , , , , on April 28, 2014 by erichason

Sharing a fashion editorial published in And Men Magazine. Long time collaborator Andre Austin styled the shoot which took place in my New York studio. Sean Harju from Soul Artist Management was the model.

And Men is a beautiful oversized magazine published in Australia twice a year and distributed worldwide. The quality of and standards for photography is incredibly high. It is always an honor to have work included in the book.

Andre Austin is a wonderful fashion stylist and a long time collaborator. He has a great aesthetic and has a great sense for styling both men and women. With men he takes classic looks but gives them a whimsical twist which makes you look twice.

I enjoy shooting men’s fashion. In many ways it is much easier than photographing women. Usually there is a lot less going on with hair and makeup, taking 20 minutes to prep and groom a guy. Also the guys just need to look like handsome, cool dudes, which they usually are anyway, we just dress them up a bit!

NYC Designer Lee Anderson Part II – the photos

As promised, here are images from the Spring 2014 photo shoot for New York fashion designer Lee Anderson.

We were very fortunate to have the stunning Clara Settje (Trump Model Management) modeling for us. The talented Xtah Weiss did an incredible job with hair and makeup.

This was a pretty straight forward shoot using a white background, a wind machine on Clara’s hair initially, then giving her a more glamorous look the second half of the shoot. Lee always brings incredible shoes and accessories to finish each look.

Clara was incredible bringing each look to life. The shoot was held at my NYC studio in the Flatiron District.

Client feature – New York fashion designer Lee Anderson

Posted in Behind the scenes, Comings and goings, commercial photography, Diary, Fashion, Photography, Portrait, Work with tags , , , , on April 22, 2014 by erichason

Lee Anderson is a custom couture fashion designer in Manhattan.

I have been photographing her designs going on ten years. Lee sells custom garments soley out of her Lexington Avenue shop. Her loyal clientele appreciate her fearless aesthetic using bold colors, strong patterns, rich texture, and wonderful silhouettes to create both classic and whimsical fashion for every body type. Her husband and partner Nick Angelakis takes care of production and the business end and daughter Kyra helps manage the main store and outlet across Lexington Ave.

I love working with Lee. The photo shoot is always elegant and fun. The first time I worked with her I found myself pulling a stuffed, mounted trophy fish off the studio wall as a prop.

Here are some photographs I took of Lee, Nick and their staff at the Upper East Side shop and their Garment Center factory.
Also attaching her bio at the end of the post. Later this week I will share some photos we have created together.

Delivering the finished garment.

Lee Anderson had already garnered a reputation for creating custom made couture clothing that embraces chromatic luxury in world renown fabrics when she established her design business in 1980 in a townhouse just off Madison Avenue in New York City. Lee graduated from the Traphagen School of Design, founded in the 1920s by Ethel Traphagan. The school was known for its technical orientation of the art of fashion design, offering courses in pattern-making and drafting. Although the school closed its doors in the early 1990s, such fashion icons as Geoffrey Beene, James Galanos, Mary McFadden, John Kloss, Christos Yiannakou and Franklin Rowe are among its alumni.

After being introduced to Seventh Avenue by Ralph Lauren, Lee worked as a design assistant to legends John Kloss (a fellow Traphagen alumnus), most famous for designing a bra that appeared not to exist in 1974 for Lily of France and Herbert Kasper for Joan Leslie. Kasper made his name as a designer by working for Joan Leslie from 1963 to 1985, becoming vice president of the company in 1980 and creating high fashion looks that reflected trends but were commercial and wearable.

Soon after striking out on her own, Lee Anderson’s collection was featured at Barney’s New York, Bergdorf Goodman and other fine specialty stores in the U.S. Today, the designer dedicates herself to her signature couture collection and special New York clientele. She continues to create clothing that embraces chromatic luxury using the most extraordinary and researched fabrics of the world, including iridescent taffetas, brocades, hand fringed British district checks and Celtic tweeds.

Lee Anderson Couture caters to a clientele who share her love for the highest pinnacle in luxury fashion.
