Model Lillian Page @Cleri

Here is a quick taste of a shoot with model Lillian Page from Cleri Models.  We just finished a couple minutes ago.  It was one of her very first shoots; super fresh face.







Shot on a Canon 5D Mark II with an 85mm 1.2 Lens.  Some shots were natural daylight and the rest were Broncolor.

Thanks!

Great Behind the Scenes Video of Flipbook 3

For those of you thought you saw a lot of behind the scenes footage in the Flip Book 3 teaser, the new behind the scenes video offers so much more;  a lot more Melanie Iglesias, a lot more Michael Creagh, and a lot more photography.  I try not to read to many of the comments on YouTube, but when I do I see people so incorrectly describing what we do.  This video really shows us working and the techniques...and it is sexy and fun.  You get to also see some of process Melanie and I use to create mood, feel, and sexiness.


Flip Book 3 is at 500,000 views in 2 days with loads of YouTube honors and we are fast approaching 4 million views for the series.  So exciting.


Here is the link to ALL Melanie posts from my blog; including both Flip Book 1,2 and 3, some behind the scenes shots, twitter posts, the teaser video…everything.

Skyscraper by Natascha Bessez (French Remake)

I wanted to post the second video I directed for super singer Natascha Bessez.  This one is a french remake of the song Skyscraper by Demi Lovato.  Beautiful song that really fit Natascha's beautiful voice.  This is our second video collaboration.  The first was Shakira's Rabiosa.  Also, below the video are some links to some of our photoshoots.

One of Natascha’s  videos, a cover of Mr. Saxobeat has over 400,000 hits. The Link includes some photos you don’t want to miss.

Here is a link to the preview photo for Rabiosa.

Link to her interview on Reynolds 2.2 Blog including more hot photos

Here is the link to my first post on Natascha, where she belts out Bruno Mars’ Grenade.

Of course, this isn’t my first set of videos; nearly 4 million hit Flip Books with Melanie Iglesias and a fashion video for Susana Monaco.

Thanks!

Italian Vogue with Fluvia Lacerda

I am very excited to announce Vogue Italia is running 2 of my photos with famed model Fluvia Lacerda on their website.  Italian Vogue was the first fashion magazine I ever paid attention to.  I was living in Tuscany and just getting deep into photography.  I would marvel at the images inside by the world's best photographers and wonder how to create them.




You can see more of Fluvia's images on her website, and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.  I shot these photos on my  Hasselblad in my New York studio.  Hair by Damian Monzillo at Bernstein & Andriulli,  Makeup by Yuko Takahashi, and styling by Spry.

Here are 2 links to past blog posts of my work with Fluvia; behind the scenes and Epoca Magazine.

Thanks!

Celebrity Stories - Hilary Swank

I thought I would try out a new series on my blog tonight called celebrities stories.  I am not going to include photos in most of these posts as I am not going to tell stories about celebrities I necessarily photographed.  Think of my photography work as doctor/patient or attorney/client privilege.  I don't want to break any covenant that may exist with celebrities that put their trust in me.  Instead, the posts will be more New York stories of living in the city and running into stars.

I thought I would start with Hilary Swank, the beautiful 2-time Oscar winner, since she was in the news this week for an ill conceived trip to Chechnya.  Nothing big, she attended a birthday party for the President, Ramzan Kadyrov.  But he is a controversial figure for human rights violations.  For those of you who don't know.  There was a war, atrocities, some pretty upsetting terrorism.  Putin appointed Kadyrov President in 2007 and he has taken a hard line against the Chechen rebels.  Since the birthday party, she made a nice statement and donated the cash to various charities.

Hilary Swank and a Muffin
When I still shot all film, some years back, I had an almost daily routine.  Take the subway to Union Square and walk to the different labs in the photo district; some for E-6, some for prints, etc.  I was almost always dropping off or picking up.  On this particular day, I am hungry, really hungry.  So up from the Subway, I stop at the great Farmer's Market right there in the square.  I buy this wonderfully big chocolate muffin.

I exit the square going west on 17th street heading to the first photo lab past 6th Ave.  I start unwrapping the cellophane and I am looking down at this big muffin with my mouth watering.  I take a huge bite.  Maybe too big of a bite and as I struggle to control the massive gob of muffin in my mouth, I look up and see an absolutely lovely looking, Hilary Swank directly opposite me on the sidewalk. Except she isn't completely lovely looking as she has a somewhat horrified look on her face as she had just watched me attack that muffin.

I never said a word to her (I physically couldn't with that much muffin in my mouth).  I didn't smile or find some crazy way to start up a conversation with her that led to an awesome photoshoot you could now go see on my website.  I just kept walking and chewing.

If it is worth anything, the muffin was really tasty.

Thanks!
