I was rockin' out in my room this morning. I was having trouble coming up with the look for one of my shots from this magazine shoot. A little air guitar to "sweet child o' mine" and 3 cups of coffee later and I think I found my answer. . . . . . . thank god my blinds were closed, otherwise that would have been really embarrassing. I sure hope no one finds out about it.

Vilita was the Supermodel winner from Lithuania. She photographs amazingly, and here is what I mean by that. Her face has a bone structure that just seems to attract light perfectly. She also has a great attitude and fun personality, which I have learned, through all this recent shooting, is so much more important for a great photograph than just being beautiful.

I never realized how many people regularly check my blog! So you can stop with all the hate mail, I will start posting regular updates now that my schedule is back on track. I shot Piveta from Supreme for a magazine editorial. The shoot featured clothes from designers like A La Disposition and some amazing hats by Ryan Wilde NYC. Now the fun part begins, piecing all the images together for a cohesive story. Here are a couple samples from the shoot so you get an idea of where it might be headed. I will be spending the next few days editing this shoot as well as a shoot I did yesterday. I will post samples from that shoot tomorrow.

Our crazy weather sometimes can be a blessing. Take yesterday for example. I was scheduled to shoot Natasha, the Russian winner of the Ford Supermodel of the World contest. (It's funny, when I attended the contest, I said that she would be the one I would want to shoot, turns out, they asked me to shoot her!) Anyway, the weather was funky. Warm with occasional rain showers, but I wanted to get out from shooting in my room and venture out onto the roof for a change. This was the result. That pink dress and leather jacket? Genius! Also, the tulle from my trip to Mood Fabrics, ala Project Runway, added some nice texture to my background. Thanks to Julie for the kick ass styling, and Cyndie for the flawless make-up! . . . . . oh, and Tortilla Flats for the Margaritas!!!

I've become addicted to Mike and The Mad Dog. Especially on days where I'm stuck in front of the computer all day editing images from Fashion Week, it helps pass the time. There were some vintage moments yesterday as they ripped into Congress attempting to hold a hearing on steroids in baseball. Above is the only clip I could find from the afternoon. How they can do this show for 5 1/2 hours a day is beyond me. Yesterday was a classic.

Well, I officially caught a cold from Fashion Week. Close quarters and strangers from foreign lands, I'm just lucky I didn't get malaria. Well, it's not like I don't have enough computer work to keep me busy. Speaking of which, here are the other looks from Martha's shoot yesterday.
"She could be the sweetest girl I have ever met". That's what I told her booker yesterday after I shot Martha. I also enjoyed the fact that I was part of her first snow experience, "It is so beautiful.", she told my stylist in a soft Brazilian accent. Here are 2 of the looks from yesterday. More to come.

I just had to take a picture of my picture of Christina. I talked to her backstage and she said that the card seen above got her twice as many shows this season in NY as compared to last season! I'll take that as a compliment. . . . . although I'm sure she probably had something to do with it.
