Bartering is Easy as Pie (for Photographs)

Jane posted an insane ad on Craigslist a while ago. The ad said she was trying to get an interior design business going, needed to develop a portfolio, but couldn't afford to hire a photographer to shoot her work. She could however offer barter, like making pillows, sewing curtains, or baking pies. I really like pie, so I wrote to Jane.

Earlier this evening, I shot an apartment space Jane designed and she presented me with a freshly baked, still warm, apple pie. I love NYC for moments of weirdness like this.

Prepping Hannah for Jack Germain

We're shooting Jack Germain's entire line of 38 handbags tonight. We've started at 7:30pm, after what's already been a long day's work for each of us. But we'll be extremely productive because everybody here tonight is extremely good at their craft. Morgan Gates is on makeup and hair, Chelsa Crowley is styling, and Jack is calling the shots I take of Hannah, the model.

Location Scouting for Cash Fur Gold

outside the goldman sachs building in financial district

Cash Fur Gold is looking to utilize a background from another era in their press photos. Something gilded, vintage, reeking of money. I went walking around the Financial District at Midnight to see what I could see.

Mostly it was men in button-downs drinking Guinness, knocking back pints of Guinness and pissing in the ornamental shrubbery outside the Irish bars - reliving their highlight reel from the fraternity days, I guess. I saw enough of that in college so it didn't warrant any snapshots tonight.
