Vienna Meets America!!!

August 2, 2012

So I recently took a fantastic vacation in Vienna (many many thanks to my dear friend Michael N. who was an awesome host!) and I decided that I wanted to do a shoot! I got in touch with the agencies there and was sent a package, from which I went straight for Manuel Bayer. He had a great look and awesome hair. But the weather forced us to cancel the first shoot and we had problems with the wardrobe but we fought through all the problems and finally shot. We had the lovely hair and make up, Ms. Britta Tess, with us and it was such a great experience.  Here is an image  from the shoot. More to come!

Introducing: Alex Lago

December 29, 2011

It is a small, small world. I was in talks to do a shoot with a model and somehow Alex not only was roommates with this guy, he is also a good friend of one of the stylists I work with, Courtney Ann. Alex has amazing features but we decided on doing something more retro with him for this shoot and he looks amazing! Styling by Courtney Ann. Hair by Jacque Greco. You’ll be seeing more of Alex soon!

The Beginning of the End

April 20, 2011

While I have been nothing but impatient about leaving FIT, I still am sad that it truly is the end of a crazy time. No more winter breaks, no more summer vacations! Here is the shoot I did for my final senior project. I decided it was time to really push myself creatively and build on my usual style. It took a lot of planning, panic and work, but it really truly paid off. I worked with an amazing team and an amazing agency.

These images will be displayed at the Salt Space Gallery on 25th/5th ave in New York City on May 12th, 6-9pm. Please come and support me and the Senior Photo class of 2011!

Hello Brazil!

March 23, 2011

So last week I did my second big shoot of the year with an amazing Brazilian model, Sebastiao Neto, courtesy of Red Models NYC (thank you George!). We shot at a great location – thanks to my friends Dany and Carlos – and I am in love with the shots! We had an amazing dog thanks to Josh D who took time out of his busy day to bring Disco (the doggy) to the shoot. It was a fun and exciting shoot. Great model,great agency, great dog, and great friends all made this happen. And thank you Sebastiao for enduring that painful reflector haha. Until next time! 🙂

Biggest Shoot In the Making: Behind the Scenes of Thesis Shoot 1

February 9, 2011

Here I am…finally editing the shoot that took a month in the making. Usually I work with the least amount of people and shoot in already existing environments. But this time, I decided to pull all the stops. I started by looking for the location, which is always key for my images. This is probably the hardest part of a shoot as locations usually involve big budgets and that I do not have ha. But thanks to my amazing friend Dany V., I got to shoot in his beautiful penthouse in Battery Park.

From there I got in touch with set/interior designer Abigail Smith, who I had previously worked with on a shoot. I went on to find the perfect models for the shoot and decided to work with Elpha, who I also have worked with before but on a very different shoot. The male casting was the hardest, as I had a very specific look in mind and finding that look was getting impossible. However, I stumbled upon an amazing model, Jeff B., and I finally found the male lead.

I also spoke with an amazing stylist – Giora Stuchiner – who agreed to style the shoot. I think the most frustrating part of the shoot was the inconsistency of hair and make up artists. Every single one either flaked out or just disappeared. But alas, we had Giora who also does hair and make up and he saved us all! Thanks to his friend Danny as well for all his help!

The shoot set up began at 9am and the shoot did not end until about 6pm. We had an amazing team , amazing hosts (thank you Dany and Carlos), and an amazing shoot. Thank you everyone! And thank you God for no snow that day! 🙂

Here is a behind the scenes shot. Stay tuned for the final images soon!
