It’s been a while since I had the time to write an entry.. it has been an insanely busy Summer. Feels like in the last year, I’ve finally achieved a balance between shooting creative fashion and commercial work, and my Fine Art photography. 

One of the projects I worked on over the last few months was a collaboration with model/activist Alexandra Wynne, and amazing fashion stylist Ise White. We created a fashion editorial that 1st ran in the Worldwire preview issue of Refuse Magazine (a magazine entirely dedicated to raise awareness to the refugee crisis) and then later in the sustainable fashion magazine Eluxe. Our goal was to create a visually beautiful fashion story with using actual items that the refugees use in their journey from Syria to Greece.. from life jackets, solar puffs, space blankets, donated blankets and jackets.. to actual jewelry that the children had beaded at the camps. 

My baby girl  Ilo made her 1st editorial debut in the story.. and we had an inspiring day shooting with a powerful all-women team in my studio in Tribeca. Ise created incredible pieces right at the studio using raw materials.. turning refuse into fashion couture.

Sometimes I love going back and re-editing and retouching an older story. We did this bright lipped story a few years back with the amazing makeup artist Georgi Sandev, and model Matta Matthiasdotir. It is now re-freshed, and back in my book. :)

We had an an intense, heat-filled 3-days time shooting this in one of the most beautiful canyons I have ever been to, just outside of las Vegas.

Just out in the print issue of HUF magazine last week. 

Kuddos to an amazing team, who was all smiles regardless of the 1am call times, severe cold and dust-filled heat, and grueling 20h days!

I shot the awesome Olivia Jordan a few months ago… and here are the shots!

We had fun playing at the studio and creating some leather/lingerie looks that were a bit more edgy than the usual Beauty Queen shots.. but we had to include a silver lace crown as well.

I recently had an interesting experience going back to my “roots”, and shooting again on analog film for the newest issue of Honest Magazine.

I dag out my art-school camera from my SVA days (Nikon FM10), bought 20 rolls of Ilford 400 and 3200 film, and planned a shoot in my Tribeca studio. 

For the story, I wanted to portray the  human emotions on both of my models.. Anger, Happiness, Fear, Surprise, Sadness, and Disgust. 


We had so much fun shooting.. Models Marta and Sergio gave each emotion all their acting abilities, from screaming (anger) to digging out their boogers (disgust). It was fun and scary to shoot on film again.. I had no idea what I was getting, and was racking up quite a bill with the film.

Hope you like the results.

I shot this dreamy series of nudes in Zermatt, Switzerland. 

It was a place where time seemed to have stood still.. The little village, covered in pillowy snow. Very quiet.



Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening - Poem by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

I’ve finally gotten to editing some of my older video work.. shot this back in 2011!
