J Mendel Backstage & Runway Show

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.

The Knot's Couture Bridal Fashion Week New York City

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 might have already seen someone you know getting married in one of these beautiful dresses! Here are some of my favorites.

Reem Acra's Runway Show at New York Fashion Week

I am still going through all of my photos from fashion week, but as I was editing I realized Reem Acra's show was one of my favorites. There was so much attention to detail and amazing bead work. I wanted to share some of her beautiful pieces.

Studio Photography Class Part 2

A few days ago I taught my first solo class. (You can sign up on skillshare!) It was a lot of fun and there were a number of students who came.  I hope they enjoyed the class as much as I did teaching it. I went over topics like: Having your photo studio at home, Studio lighting in small spaces, and even had some extra time to discuss a bit about the business of photography.

Oh, did I forget to mention we had the beautiful model, Alicia Henry, helping us out with the lighting demos. Here are a few shots of Alicia from class. Can you guess the lighting?


Studio Photography Class!

I always get asked about teaching a class, so I finally decided to do it. Here's the link: 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!
