Rare Creature emulation

This was our first assignment for fashion, but I redid it at the end of the semester.  It is an emulation of Howard Schatz’s editing techniques. The model is once again Anne McCarthy. (Senior portraits around Syracuse campus soon to come!)


American Honey fashion editorial

The last assignment for my fashion photography class was to do a fashion editorial meant for a magazine.  When Doc suggested it be inspired by a song (we had to do a multimedia as well) I immediately knew I was going to do American Honey by Lady Antebellum (

The photos were taken on a private residence in Kirkville, NY. The owner was amazingly nice and generous. My amazing models were Sara Sindelar, Laura Renaud, Tory Wolk, and Ella Froggatt. The braved the chilly weather to model sundresses for me and completely helped me fulfill my vision for this shoot. I couldn’t be happier with how it came out and I could not have done it without them. Thanks girls!

Also thanks to Maren Guse for taking me location scouting and helping me find this amazing property!

UGG campaign emulation

Each member of my class was paired with a student in the Newhouse Fashion Milestone class. Those students acted as the art directors and we as the photographers. I was paired with a great partner, Sarah Bamford, and was really glad we both agreed on the kind of fashion we wanted to emulate. Neither of is are really into high fashion, so we chose UGG Australia which has some really cool ads out right now.

We brough 4 great models to Green Lakes park and had some really great and fun photo shoots. We only ended up using photos of Emily Hicks to pass in to our professors, but the other models were awesome as well and I’ll post some of those too.

Here are the finished ads (Emily Hicks is the model for both).

Much awaited photos of Anne

An assignment for my fashion photography class was to emulate a cover of a fashion magazine. The magazine I was assigned was Nylon Magazine. I haven’t finished the layout of the cover, but Anne was anxious to see the photos, so here is the one I plan on using.

Thanks for modeling Anne! I’ll post the magazine cover when it’s done.
