Last Friday was a really fun day at the studio! We were shooting a “behind the scenes” video of a fashion photoshoot. The model was my good friend, Amelia Huckel-Bauer, a NYC-based actor and model, with whom I have worked several times before.
Maria Dominici, a makeup artist, and David Distasio, a hair stylist, were part of the terrific team for the day. I’ve worked many times with Maria – you’ll see of lot of her work in my images – but it was the first time collaborating with David – the first of many, I hope.
The videographer was Matt Shea, of Matt of All Media. I’d seen a few videos produced for other photographers of “behind the scenes” at photoshoots that we took some inspiration from. Matt and I planned out pretty carefully what we wanted to accomplish for the day but stayed open to spontaneous creative ideas. Matt actually shot all of the video using one of my cameras, the NIkon D800, which gave us some special effects we wanted.
These are a few of my still images of the day. We haven’t settled yet on which images will go into the video. Here’s Matt shooting Amelia, below.
I don’t want to say too much about the video – you’ll have to wait (along with me!) to see how it turns out. But this was a fabulous experience for me to work with an amazing professional team. Many thanks to all of you! We’ll post the video when it’s released – Stay tuned!
