Lola Astanova – Press Kit Shoot

lola astanova carrie schechter

I had the glorious opportunity to shoot he lovely, talented, & gorgeous Lola Astonova. We shot in 2 parts; part 1 has been released, part 2 is a mystery to the public for the next few months. She is an incredible pianist with a list of accomplishments that take some people a life time, this young phenom has just begun and is already conquering the world. When I was first approached by her great manager Misha, he sent me a bunch of youtube videos of her playing the piano, one comment struck me, a girl who was def said: I cannot hear music, but watching you I can feel it and it is beautiful.

Below is a cover of a Russian magazine with one of out images

New Cover. The Vampire Diaries. The Return:Midnight

The last book of my first trilogy for The Vampire Diaries, The Return – by L.J. Smith. I shot for the incredible HarperCollins Publishers, who I LOVE, they are all such a great group of people! This cover was art directed by the incredible and warm-hearted David Caplan, graphic design by the lovely and talented Jennifer Heuer, hair and makeup extraordinaire Roshar, one of my favorite team members. First asst Derrick C.

The shoot was lovely, I adored our model!! She became the character Caroline in the novel. What an amazing day we had on set, it’s an incredible series to be a part of. Congrats to all the success of the books and tv show and everyone involved, esp the fabulous L.J. Smith.

Film Noir….

Part 4 of the marathon shoot, here we have a few of the finals of Kara, Bri and Erin. Minimal retouching on these shots,  just some beautiful girls, some lights, an incredible mua, and a photographer. I play both rolls, I love to direct and I love to just let magic happen. When Bri walked on set and asked if she could cry, I was excited. I love moments like that, raw, uncensored and naked in front of the camera, it takes a lot of trust from the girls, especially when there 7 other models on set as well as assistants, the glam squad, etc., watching you as friends and competitors. I’ve never had any trouble having a model go back and forth from the light to the dark side. I chose all of theses girls because their portfolio showed me something very special, and they exceeded any expectations. Basic, Red, NY Models and Q Agencies are amazing – and Ceri, Boyanna, Kara, Bri, Victoria, Erin, and Valaria – you’re ridiculous! Makeup/Hair: the amazing Roshar

SEE IT ALL!!!

My favorite black tube top….

I just did a whole new series of beauty shots. I chose 6 models from some of my favorite agencies, the girls were amazing, Roshar was incredible as always, and the shots came out gorgeous.

It was a super fun-tastic and exhausting day. I wanted to do little to no retouching on these images and I was very excited with my decision. The girls skin is flawless, the hair and mua was perfect, thanks to the fabulous Ro. I started off the shoot with a series called “My favorite Black Tube Top.” All the girls walked in the door to this shoot. I wanted them completely natural, a little moisturizer a touch of lip gloss and 15 min of shots, just raw and un-polished. Next we shot “Cruel, Cruel Summer”…I never knew a swim cap could be so hot, Third was the Primaries section which I will keep building on, and finally one of my favorite series,”Film Noir.”

Finals coming soon.
