Avian – Press Kit Shoot

AVIAN_carrieschechter_4393

On a wildly rainy day we took off to Long Island to shoot upcoming singer AVIAN on location for her new EP covers and press kit. She is a spitfire, with incredible energy and is absolutely charming. I am still blown away by her huge voice coming out of such a tiny body. Her manager, Jdot is deep in the hip hop community,and already has her cutting tracks with 50cent + some upcoming special releases coming out soon. You can catch Avian on next seasons “The Voice” too, check her out! Also, thanks to my crew, you guys always blow my mind.

You can more finals on my site

Recently I shot upcoming singing & dance diva-sensation Miasha. What can I say about Miasha other than POWERHOUSE. This girl is a total doll, strong, sweet, passionate, talented and the energy and perseverance to see her way to the top.

Although I missed the private prelim show of hers..I hear her live shows are something to write home about – video mind explosions with heart pumping beats.

Check her music out at:

Lotsa love to her managers Greenhouse Management (Matt V. & Eddie)

New Book Cover – The Gathering

screen-shot-2017-02-27-at-1-09-51-pm

Recently my new book cover photo for the incredible NY Times Best Selling Author, Kelley Armstrong’s “The Gathering” hit shelves.

I was very excited when HarperCollins Publishers called me up for the new trilogy by Kelley. She is an incredible talent and from what I hear a sensational person. The people I’ve rec’d her books to, have become huge fans of hers after the first chapter. HC is one of my favorite clients, they love to create visually stunning work that captivates its audience, and they are just really great people to work for. The lead character’s name is Maya and HC made sure we stayed as true as we could to the characters Native American heritage when casting our model Michelle.

Michelle is gorgeous and a total sweetheart! We had a great time on set with a killer crew.

The Art Director is none other than Hillary Zarycky, graphic designer is super star Erin Fitzsimmons. Hair by the incredible Jamal Hodges. Makeup by the sweet Jennifer Nam.

The 2nd book cover has already showed up on-line, called “The Calling.” It hits shelves in 2012.

I’m very honored to be chosen to photograph another trilogy for Kelley and HarperCollins. Can’t wait for the next 2 books to come out! Congrats Kelley and HarperCollins on another smash hit!

New Cover for Russian Chicago Magazine

Check out my new cover of the brilliant &  mesmerizing Natasha Romanova on Russian Chicago Magazine. The Ukrainian socialite and starlit is quickly taking over America’s hearts with her ice blue eyes, melodic voice, hypnotic lyrics and heart pumping beats.

I absolutely love Natasha, she is bright, strong, brilliant, and beautiful. We first met when she was in the band Discrete Encounter, who I shot for some album packaging and press kits awhile back….now working on her solo career she is bursting into the scene all over the world.

Behind the Scenes with BAYSIDE for the new cover for Hot Topic & AP Mag

As the snow melted all over the metro area, I had the pleasure of being asked by Editor Ted Barnes to shoot the new cover and feature story for AP Magazine and Hot Topic Clothing Stores. My cover for this months issue is the band Bayside.

They are a great group of guys to work with, they were punctial (a rarity in rock), professional, funny & were down for anything I threw at them which made the day amazing.

Bayside has a new much anticipated new album out called Killing Time, and fans are going wild. I wish these guys the best, the deserve nothing less.

Get the Limitied Edition Mini Mag at Hot Topics everywhere, and give a big hug to AP Mag who has included a CD, wrist band and poster with the mag. You can also see one of my Bayside photos in the normal edition of the current AP Magazine on newstands now.

Bayside is with Wind-up Records and their manager Catie is a total doll! Watch their little video below.
