Behind the Scenes: DJPremium.com shoot in New York City

I just returned from New York this week, and while out there we photographed a feature for DJPremium.com’s Fall fashions.

I would say the city just shows more character in its buildings, streets, and people.

The Summer Look Book for DJPremium has just been published with images that I shot. Overall, this shoot was super fun. I enjoy these shoots location more than our studio shoots.

Other than that, the models fit right into our scenes & moods and resulted in the great Look Book.

Cavi Clothing Look Book

Just wanted to share some images I recently shot for Cavi Clothing. The Look Book we shot was for their Suit Separates Collection ’11. The location was at Prohibition Liquid Bar, in Downtown San Diego. Some thoughts about the shoot:

2. The space inside the bar was very limited, so I was not able to use large softboxes and other modifiers. With a mixture of compact monolights & small speedlight strobes, I fit the lights where they could, and modified the light in simplistic manners (flags, gaffers tape, gels, and small reflectors)
