Mother NY-Westfield

Wonderful collaboration with world-class illustrator Ben Wiseman, for the launch of Westfield department stores at the World Trade Center Oculus.  Lovely combination of photography and illustration, stills and motion.  Much gratitude to Jen, Jason, Erin and Alexia at Mother NY for excellent creative direction and for keeping the shoots running so smoothly.

TUMI Mariella

Tumi’s ‘Brains & Beauty’ campaign for the new Mariella tote.  Happy to see that brains is  mentioned first!  Like the bag, our set is usually highly functional and OCD neat (see image below); looking at you super digitech Jonathan 🙂    In black, it could even be used as a man’s bag, just saying…   Our fantastic AD/CD team of Jay, Bee, Tim and Dana made it a pleasure to work on this project and our prop stylist made it a pleasure to shoot -> Alex Niki / ThePropStylist

TUMI v3

I love to travel and when I’m not shooting stills, food or liquids in New York, you’re likely to find me near a beach, mountain or hot spring somewhere on this planet.  The lovely people of Erwin Penland let me combine my stills with travel imagery for our latest job with TUMI. An absolute pleasure to work with the whole EP creative team, especially Dana Kandic, art producer extraordinaire!

Maker’s 46 Campaign + BTS

We continued our series with Maker’s Mark for their iconic Maker’s 46 Bourbon Whiskey.  Since it is only made during the winter months, we’ve decided to shoot it on a frozen lake.  In the studio.  With real ice.  Well, maybe it’s easier to understand if you watch the video below…

L’Oréal Powder Explosions

A lot of dedication and testing went into this shoot for the Spring 2014 campaign of French cosmetics client L’Oréal, for Clarisonic’s Festival of Colors launch.  From creating a custom rig (expertly built by Megan Caponetto) to using Kapture laser triggers and Bron high-speed flash, everything had to be adjusted perfectly to capture the initial stages of powder explosions.  Many thanks to Megan, Tim, Logan, Tomo & Sasha for their help and input throughout the assignment.  Once more, I could rely on the support of a great team to blow stuff up and enjoy it!

Digitas – Comcast

Collaborated with Digitas NY again, this time for Comcast.  Can’t remember the last time we had such an intense shoot schedule and got everything done in only 3 days!  It was hard work and a lot of fun.  Thanks to my great team -> Alexandra Niki (Prop. Styling), Sasha Maslov (aka Saslov Maslov / trusted assistant) and Yoonjoo Kim (2nd assistant).  On top of that I had the pleasure of working with people who know their craft and do it with style & integrity – yes, that’s you Karen and Matt.  Thank you.
