Our Beautiful Launderette

This is a story I have been dying to photograph for ages. I finally started scouting for laundromats with lots of daylight. I must say, when you’re self producing and aren’t waving around buckets of money, it’s hard to get anyone to get back to you. My erstwhile assistantBrooke Vanderbilt is persistent; however, and would not be denied. So several times she trekked to Laundry King and stalked the owners until they finally relented! We then pulled together our dream team: stylist Mimi Lombardo, hair/mu Brett Jackson, model Kathryn Carter and model Nick Zibro. We arrived and had a blast making photographs in suds heaven!

School’s Out For Summer!

When Charlotta Janssen and I first started renovating The Catskill House, a guest house in Catskill, NY, we designed it with hosting photography productions in mind. Adding windows where there once were none and removing walls where there once were some. This is a story I had in mind ever since we completed the interior. So I added a dash of Anni Krueger, a few cloves of Love, a pinch of Sam Dawdy, then sprinkle in some Kelley Quan and stir in a whole bunch of fun, and it all adds up to a flavorful “School’s Out For Summer” Story!

Once Upon a Waitress

When Chez Oskar relocated from Fort Greene to Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn, I knew that it would be a beautiful restaurant to do a fashion story. The decor and light are wonderful and I thought it would be great fun to shoot a waitress story. I was extremely lucky that model Emily Doyle, stylist Mimi Young, makeup artist Brett Jackson, and digital tech Kyle Makrauer would team up with me on this engaging story. Then I sprinkled in some Adam, Laura and David, and voilà! 

Kids Photo Shoot at the Catskill House

I was hired to produce and shoot these photographs for a children’s book company out of Connecticut. We took this to the Catskill House which my partner Charlotta and I recently renovated. The Catskill House was designed to be very open and airy so that it would be a great indoor location for photo productions. The local talent were more than up for the task and I am sure we are going to sell a ton of books!

Dr. Oliver Bronson House with Ella Loudon

The Dr. Oliver Bronson House in Hudson, NY, is an abandoned manse looked after by Historic Hudson a non-profit that preserves the architectural heritage of Hudson. I had been a few times during their bi-annual open houses, and was very keen to photograph there one day. That day arrived, and I organized a team mostly from Hudson: Ella Loudon as the muse, Mara Schiavetti doing Hair/MU and Peter Seward assisting. Coming up from the City: Brooke Vandever digital teching and Sabine Feuilloley as our stylist. It was a gorgeous day out, and both the vintage walls of the Oliver Bronson House and the grounds surrounding it lent themselves to a lovely shoot of the stunning actress Ella Loudon.
