Advertising and Editorial Fashion Photography


This Fashion Editorial style image was shot near Marina Del Rey (Los Angeles) and was part of a video project shot by a German crew on me. Every 2 years the world's largest camera show is held in Cologne, Germany. About 180,000+ people attend from more than 160 countries. In the second largest venue (the largest was Canon's) there was an event called the "Leading Photographers of the World" and the producer had invited 5 International photographers to speak covering a range of types of photography: wedding, fashion, advertising, rock & roll and on Saturday, swim wear & lingerie. I was invited to speak about Fashion.

The reason the video crew was in L.A. to shoot my crew & me is the "Leading Photographers of the World" wanted to hand out DVD's of all 5 photographers and have both an interview and how all of us shot our work. They give the DVD's to attendees of the venue after the photographers spoke, which was 3 times a day. There were thousands of DVD's handed out and I have received e-mails from some of these people thanking me for sharing how I shoot.

The rest of the story is: I had just finished almost a months work in Milan, Italy and flew to L.A. via NYC to shoot this project & after a 28 hour day I finally got to bed around midnight L.A. time. My 2 checked bags missed the connection in NYC so I did not have all of my gear when we shot the first day. So we had to shoot a couple of shots the next day too and this image is from the second day.

Shot with a Canon camera with 16-35 Canon zoom lens, using a FourSquare lightweight softbox and a LightTools grid. The two strobes are Lumedyne 200 w.s. a MicroSync radio sync trigger. And both packs are set on the highest setting, 200, in order to overpower the sunlight. On some of these shots I also used a Sunbounce Mini reflector.
