Behind the scenes photo shoot

Posted by on Jul 13, 2009 |

I did an amazing shoot yesterday in one of my favorite professional photo studios in New York City. Here are some shots from behind the scenes:

This is my wonderful assistant who busted her butt setting up equipment, getting yummy food, helping helping helping in every direction. I couldn’t have asked for a nicer person. If you ever need a photo assistant in New York, call me and I’ll give you her contact info. And yes, that’s my precious pooch, Charlie. He had so much fun yesterday. He’s sleeping today like he hasn’t had any rest in a week.

The client spent an hour or so getting a manicure and pedicure here at the studio, then another two hours in hair and makeup. That’s fancy (and super slim) Kim doing all that snazzy curling.

This is Jersey, the crack stylist. And no, I do not mean anything close to drugs. Jersey found the most amazing clothes – we even used a $15,000 ball gown! Stunning. He’s a star.

This is one of the carts with some of the equipment we used. We ended up using three ProFoto Acute A packs, two umbrellas and a medium softbox. We also had the luxury of using a wind fan and put a grid on one of the fill lights when we went to a dark background.

Here’s a pulled back shot and yes, that’s my darling little dog Charlie looking so tiny in such a big space.

This is our star manicurist/pedicurist, Yuko. She was so adorable!

This is a shot of the client relaxing for a second at the end of a very long day. She was amazing. The clothes were amazing. The team was astonishingly great. I hope to do another shoot like this soon!
