My shoot with Moving Mountains for AP Magazine

A bit ago I had the privilege to shoot Moving Mountains. A super talented band quickly on the rise to stardom. These guys are hysterical and the nicest people (with rock star edge of course). I absolutely loved them and am so excited for all the success coming their way. I worked with the incredible Christopher Benton at Alternative Press Magazine for this shoot. Love AP, love MM, love Chris! Thanks guys!

Candace Bushnell for Hello!


Recently I had the pleasure of shooting the wonderfully warm, sophisticated  and beautiful author, Candace Bushnell. Candace is the author of books such as Sex & the City & Lipstick Jungle as well as columns in major newspapers. As Sex & the City 2 is  hitting the big screen, her latest book, Carrie’s Diaries, is hitting book shelves and is already a hot seller worldwide.

The feature is on newsstands now in Hello! Magazine Canada. We shot at the gorgeous Jumeirah Essex House Hotel in Manhattan. I had amazing creative direction from Kristine and Shauna at Hello!, it was a blast to work for them.

Grab the issue for the full scoop from Candace, you can see the final image on my site.

Behind the Scenes on my set with Ludacris for Honey Magazine

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to embark on a 1 hour tour with Ludacris, his entourage, my team & my clients at the ESPN Zone in New York’s Time Square. It was here that we shot the cover for the newest issue of Honey Magazine. The brains and brawn behind Honey Magazine are pretty magnificent and it was a pleasure to work for them, Ludacris was a class act and its no wonder why he’s at the top of his game, he’s 100% on point, and it was a great shoot. Above is the video from Honey TV showing some behind the scenes footage.

stretching before Ludacris gets to set. Time to prepare for some gymnastics to get the angles I need in some pretty tight spaces.

The shoot itself was craziness, we had one hour of shooting time. In that time we had 6 location changes, 5 wardrobe changes, a Dr Oz interview for Ludacris, brunch, a high school honor roll field trip and a children’s party. Due to unforeseen events ESPN had to keep the floor open during the shoot, so we had quiet the audience and adventure in the arcade.

Cycle of Style. Behind the Scenes

carrie schechter bicycling magazine

Recently I photographed a fashion spread for Bicycling Magazine called the Cycle of Style. It’s a special fashion spread that they don’t do very often and I was extraordinarily excited to shoot for them. The shoot was on a beautiful day in NYC,  on set was photo editor extrodinair Stacey Emenecker, Mike Cushionbury was Art Directing, we cast 5 fabulous Ford models, Christopher Ritchey on hair, Deidre from RJ Bennit on Style and Ro on MU. My assistants were Derrick and Ross (Ross took the behind the scenes shots).

We shot all setups twice on two different backgrounds completely across the studio, we worked like cheetahs on 15 shots of espresso, it was amazing. It was a very creatively stimulating set, Mike was changing his game plan with the article as we were shooting, and to see him getting excited just got my creative juices all fired up. The clothes are so HOT! I don’t ride bikes much..I rode when I was 10, and when I tried to get back on one while living in Santa Barbara a few years ago..I actually forgot how. Isn’t there a saying about never forgetting how to ride a bike? Lies…all lies.

The models were gorgeous!! The vibe was upbeat and positive, the pictures came out great. Check out the December Issue of Bicycling Magazine on news stands now! Finals to come soon…
