Behind the Scenes: NYC Photo Shoot

TheeBlog-NYPhotoShoot It’s been a while since I posted some of my own work so I decided to share one of my latest fun assignments combining Art Direction, Photography, Fashion and of course, beautiful NYC. The project: a campaign photo shoot for a New York hotel. On this job, I had the pleasure of working with an amazing team of talented professionals including my dear friend and great Photographer Pablo Garcia, Makeup and Hair master Kristen Arnett, the beautiful Ashley Sherrill and my good buddy Lee Dahlberg. These are some of my personal photos and behind the scenes views which hopefully show all the details and hard work behind a shoot like this and a little bit more of what I do :)

This project, as most of them do, required a lot of planning and paperwork that I won’t bore you with. Instead, I figured it would be best to skip that part and focus on the action. As most of you know by now, I LOVE New York City, so traveling and spending a few days in company of some extremely cool, talented and inspiring people was an extra bonus. I must also say we were fortunate to work with a great client that not only trusted our vision but that was always extremely helpful. Although we had a few setbacks like weather (which forced us to cancel an entire day) the project was a complete success and the experience even better. I was able to do what I love to do, work next to great professionals and meet cool new friends.

Ok, enough talk… here are some of my photos. Hope you enjoy them!
