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.

Fashion photography for a cause!

I was excited when I was contacted by Melanie Holland to help produce a fashion photo shoot promoting Elephantasia.

Elephantasia is a fashion event organized by Gabby Wild benefitting the Wildlife Conservation Society and raising awareness to stop the slaughter of African Elephants. The event will be held on Friday May 30 at the Central Park Zoo featuring a fashion show of over 50 designers of sustainable clothing. The donation to attend the event starts at $96, one dollar for every African elephant slaughtered each day.

Gabby Wild is a student of veterinary medicine at Cornell University. She is a tireless spirit who created her foundation to save and sustain wildlife around the globe. I am inspired by her energy, ethos and dedication!

With only one week to produce the shoot, I brought on

set designer Cooper Vasquez to help with creating and executing a concept.

We emailed images for inspiration conjuring the feel of jungle and savannah. Renting a hand painted backdrop from my friends (and next door neighbor) at Oliphant Studio along with begging, stealing and borrowing tires,
folliage, and a fog machine, Cooper pulled his magic creating simple, elegant sets that perfectly complimented the clothing and theme. I was astonished we could create and shoot 4 scenes in the 5 hours allotted on a Saturday morning.

Our beautiful and elegant model Mireille Van Der Wees from Elite Model Management created a stunning tableau for the photos.

I am pleased to share some of the images we created! It is wonderful when my fashion photography can help with a greater good!

Fashion e-commerce

Fashion e-commerce photo shoot for designer Donna Degnan.

More technical than creative, it still requires an eye for detail and the ability to direct a model to best show off the designs. Customers buy garments based solely on the way it looks in photos. The photos have to look clear and stunning.

Not why I chose photography as a career, but it helps pay the bills and beats digging a ditch!

Not Beauty or Fashion photography but…

When the worlds greatest dentist

asks you to take photos for his website, you put fashion, beauty, and everything else on hold and head to the Bronx.

Dr. Robert Steinberger, East Tremont Dental, has been my dentist for longer than I care to admit. Throggs Neck is not exactly convenient to my home in Brooklyn, but he is well worth the trip. I have recommended him to friends and family in Manhattan, Connecticut and New Jersey who faithfully flock to the Boogie Down for their bi-annual checkups. He is that good! Dr. Steinberger originally hails from Brooklyn and has never forgotten his roots. He is honest, caring, smart, and has mad dental skillz. In the unlikely event that I ever move to Alaska, I will still have my teeth cleaned just north of the Whitestone Bridge.

Here are a few photographs I shot of the Doc, not fashion photography, but a thing of beauty.

Looking forward to seeing them up on his website!

Fashion Campaign

Last week I photographed and advertising campaign for my client Shani Grosz in my Manhattan studio. It was a long day shooting against two set ups, white seamless paper and a painted backdrop with fog turning my studio into a haunted forest. The stunning model, Julia Anisimova from Q Model Management killed it. She had great energy from entering the studio at 7am till the last frame was shot ten hours later. Wendi Miyake provided flawless hair and makeup and was on point though out the shoot.

Here are some behind the scenes photos.
