I was excited when Christian Ramirez, a TV host at Telemundo, asked me to shoot J Mendel's show. I liked the flowy and geometric style that was on display at the show; very inspirational! I was able to get some great backstage shots of some of the models practicing their walks, as well as of the actual show.
This past week has been a busy week for me, Fashion Week started on Thursday September 10th. I've been out and about shooting all of the various runway shows. (I will post some more photos from the week later). On Friday, I was shooting the Custo Barcelona show and on my way out I ran into the beautiful Dascha Polanco. You may know her as Daya from Orange Is the New Black. She was super sweet and let me take some great photos of her. She has such a beautiful smile! I wanted to share some of the images:
I don't usually post photos of myself, but I was very happy to meet Dascha. I am a big fan of Orange is the New Black.
I know I posted about Jasmine not too long ago, but previously I was working on a project with her and Kate. I was interested in doing some portraits of her and her owner, Kate agreed. Jasmine was very excited for it, especially when she realized this meant she got some extra treats.
So, I got Jasmine into my studio and here are the results!
The other day I took some photographs of my neighbor's dog Jasmine. She is a King Charles Cavalier and Cocker Spaniel mix. We had a lot of fun and took a bunch of photos. A few days later the temperature reached 90 degrees and Jasmine's owner, Kate, asked if I would dog sit because she knew I would be home and she was concerned with the heat. I had a fun day with Jasmine and took some more photos.
First things first, Kate brought over her food, water, leash, and some toys.
Then Jasmine made her self comfortable on the couch.
and she stayed on the couch.
After a while I tried to get her to play, so I tried to get her off the couch.
but, I think she really liked the couch.
Overall I had a great time with her. She kept me company as I did some editing and took photos of her. She's a great subject.
Coming soon: Pet Portraits of Jasmine.
I went to The Knot's Couture bridal fashion week with Jenna Salvagin and it was a great opportunity to see some new styles by Maggie Sottero! It's a totally different experience from Mercedes-Benz fashion week. The dresses in the collection are completely affordable for most brides...you might have already seen someone you know getting married in one of these beautiful dresses! Here are some of my favorites.
The day after fashion week ended I was invited by my very good friend Nora Kobrenik to visit the Zang Toi showroom. Nora couldn't make the show during fashion week, but still wanted to see the newest collection. Of course I was super excited when she invited me!
The showroom was absolutely beautiful. All the decor was either black, white or mirrored, except for the clothing of course. It was super stylish! Zang Toi himself wasn't there, but we were shown around by Steven Ong. Steven was really nice and explained the whole collection to Nora. It was really cool to see the clothing from close up. I've only ever seen them on the runway. They looked so elegant, I was afraid to touch them, but they didn't mind if we did. He also had his sketches hanging on the wall, that was really interesting to see how each piece comes together.
