Underwater Vogue

21 06 2010

Summertime is here and I’m getting ready for another season of outdoor underwater fashion shoots. Just going through some of last summer’s images and figured I’d post one never before seen shot of model Nelly. In the meantime, I’m off to the Bahamas this week…

Day 34 of 365: Technicolor Fashion Mural

5 02 2010

Needed to take a break from the NYC HDR images, so I started scheduling some model shoots again. NYC model, make-up artists, fire dancer, belly dancer and event producer, Massae, helps me kick off a new series – Fashion Murals. We are going to shoot a series of fashion shoots with NYC murals as the backgrounds.

Music Embodied in Image

22 08 2009

I made this image after having to cancel a very creative underwater shoot due to weather. Needing to let my creative juices flow, I turned my to-be-assistant for the day into a model. We cobbled the styling together and shot this indoors (obviously), and I added the accents in post. The entire process took 3 hours, from concept to post. The concept was to convey the essence, spirit and soul of music. So what do you think? Did we nail it?

More Underwater Fashion & Glamour

19 08 2009

Creating an “underwater studio” and working with models underwater can be challenging, but when it all comes together, the images are unique and beautiful. Most underwater photographers who shoot models all emulate the style of one of the pioneers of this type of photography, Howard Schatz (the man, the legend and my mentor). I see very few unique approaches to underwater photography. I try to go out of my way to create a style that is uniquely my own.  I hope that it is as evident when you browse through my images.

This is another of my favorite glamour images from the first of an ongoing series with a great model (Nelly) and an equally great make up artist (Griselle).
