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.
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.
I had a wonderful time shooting with Nigyar. She had a fun personality and was great to work with. We got so many amazing photos that I had a hard time choosing my favorites!
I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph some awesome (and adorable) kids at their first holy communion. It was at St. John Nepomucene in Manhattan. It is only a few blocks away from where I live so it was also very convenient. It was a beautiful day outside & the kids did wonderfully! They really looked like they were having fun! They were all dressed up in their dresses and suits! It was a really fun day! Congratulations to all of them!
Did some amazing portraits with Jerry. There were so many that I loved It was hard to narrow it down.
One of my favorite shows at fashion week last month was Carolina Herrera. The Collection was stunning; so elegant and classy, including the music (I recorded a bit of it on my phone so I wouldn’t forget it) You can hear it here: http://youtu.be/RdbDBZ7lsjA. it is “A whimsical riff on Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata by Tom Hodge” I wish I could own every piece that came down that runway. After the show was over I was very lucky to go back stage and meet her. Here are some photos from the show:
I always get asked about teaching a class, so I finally decided to do it. Here's the link: http://skl.sh/Sbio7s Its called Studio Photography From your Home. I will cover things like studio lighting in small spaces, lighting setups, as well as some information about the business end of photography. It's going to be a lot of fun!
I really hope to see you there!
Here's a post from New York Magazine with one of my photos on it! This was shot at beautiful restaurant, Barolo. They are located in Soho and very delicious!
