A New Project, A New Face

July 30, 2011

I was recently inspired to do a new project based on the idea of emotions and losing your identity in your surroundings.

I can definitely say my final thesis project shoot was a start to this project, even though I did not know it at the time.

There are times when we get so caught up in our emotions that we forget who we are and begin to lose our identity and individuality. I’m attempting to show that through images I have and will be shooting by taking elements in the images and strategically merging the subject with their surroundings.

Here is Alina, a great new face from Muse Model Management, who just arrived from Russia not too long ago. Make up and hair by the fantastic Victor Noble.

Photoshoot in Barcelona!

June 14, 2011

While I was in Barcelona, I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot with a model from a modeling agency based in Spain, View Model Management. Since this was a test shoot, I decided to go for very simple and clean shots. Thank you to Ferran (model), Sandra @ View Model Management, and to Giancarlo Corbacho for helping me on the shoot!

Presenting: Aleksandra Semechkina and Sunghee Kim

April 25, 2011

A couple of months ago I decided to start working on the final projects for my thesis. Many ideas came to me, some of which I could do and others I had to sacrifice due to problems such as weather, etc. I did the first two shoots and they came out amazing but some time right after my second shoot, I remembered a shoot idea that I had been thinking about for well over a year and never had the chance to do. Those are the images in my previous post.

Around the same time I had seen a dress that had left me speechless. It was designed by a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology and it was absolutely mesmerizing. I knew I had to shoot it somehow. I had no way of reaching her so I got her name and took a shot of the dress to remember it. I managed to track her down online (creepy huh!) and got in touch with her. She happily agreed to do the shoot and I was absolutely ecstatic. Her name is Sunghee Kim.

However, in order to shoot this dress, I needed an amazing model who could capture the essence of the dress and play a part in it. After a  grueling and headache inducing search for a girl, I finally found a model. The model ended up booking a job to my dismay but with it came a blessing in disguise: Aleksandra Semechkina. I have worked with dozens of models, but she has been one of the best. She blew me away with her movement and character.

I am so happy and lucky to have worked with these two ladies. I am so proud of this shoot. Here are some more shots I took of Aleksandra wearing a Sunghee Kim original!

Also, many thanks to Danielle Klatsky and Maggie Joseph for make up and hair (respectively) and Eric at Major!

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! 🙂
