Having made the cut once again and for the 5th time in a row since 2010/11, I’m grateful for the opportunity to acknowledge my collaborators who not only make it fun to be on a shoot, but also bring their vast knowledge, passion and tremendous skills to each assignment, to produce beautiful work and to make me look good! I’m excited to shoot with you for many more years to come.
As a photographer, there’s hardly anything more rewarding than to be hired and given total freedom by an art director. The trust expressed in this gesture is always so invigorating. Thanks Seung! For our page opener and image series on ‘Edible Flowers’ for New You Magazine, I could count on absolutely beautiful, world class food styling by Victoria Granof and for our story for ‘Beauty Now’, prop. stylist Thom Driver did an exceptional job. I am looking forward to shooting with all of them again soon.
