Studio Fashion with 4x5 Film

Here are a couple of shots from a recent studio shoot with the Russian model Maria. I have been shooting a ton of 4x5 for portraits and fashion lately. The color photo is 35mm. I alternate between a few cameras on shoots--digital, 35mm, 4x5, and sometimes with a Hasselblad.
Javier Romero was the make up artist.

Chicago Architecture

Calatrava's unfinished skyscraper on Lake Michigan. (above photo)

I was in Chicago for a business conference and shot a bit of architecture. It was refreshing to shoot a city that I'm not too familiar with, and it had quite a few important buildings with big name architects. One of the businesses that was involved with the conference was Chicago's First Lady boat tours. I toured this business and had an architecture tour on a luxury boat with a guide form the Chicago Architecture Council.

Model shoot with 4x5 Film

I have been shooting a lot more 4x5 film. I'm blown away by the quality of the image and how the 4x5 lenses pick up light. The photos are from a fall fashion accessories shoot. I mixed natural light and ambient light in these photos. It is so much more of a "process" when shooting 4x5 verses the normal digital routine. Hopefully I will incorporate shooting 4x5 more in future shoots that typically will be digitally shot.

Brazilian Book Cover

I shot a Brazilian book cover that was recently published. There are also photo illustrations inside the book dividing the chapters. The cover print quality is really sharp and the designers did a great job aesthetically. I'm super excited to be part of this project! AND hopefully I will get more and more photo shoots for Brazilian companies. This book is a translation from the English print in the USA. I shot it in Harlem, NYC.

Brazilian Model Ana Brito from Red Models.

Ana is my favorite model to work with. She has great looks and she can nail the shot in one take. I have shot her on a few commercial shoots. We did this shoot in the streets of Dumbo as well as some in studio beauty shots. Ana is at Red Models NYC.

My PR/Writer extraordinaire friend Michael Dolan wrote a great article about me on the Vitamin Water Canada blog! He was on a shoot with me for a "Back to School" shoe campaign shot at Poly Prep in Brooklyn.

Claudius Dolle Skateboarding

I photographed (Film with a Hasselblad!)my German skateboard friend Claudius Dolle while he stayed the summer in NYC. We hit up the new Maloof park at Flushing Meadows Corona Park as well as the famous fountain spot with the giant globe. We also skated the super rough hips at the Con Ed spot in Astoria. Here are a few links to videos of Claudius skating.

Here is a preview of the shoot I did with Brazilian models Marcella and Ana. This shot was taken in the streets of Dumbo, Brooklyn. Marcella is at Ford Models.

Colum McCann at Taschen New York

Taschen had a reading of Norman Mailer's "Moonfire." National Book Winner Colum McCann and the film producer, director, author, and photographer Lawrence Schiller discussed and read from "Moonfire." It was a great night and I am always happy to shoot Polaroid portraits!

Taschen Miami with Benedikt Taschen

I shot Benedikt Taschen and Walton Ford at the new Taschen Miami store's launch party. The photos were in the Miami Herald.
