Adrian Nivola for beach magazine

We loved briefly entering into Adrian Nivola‘s curious world shooting him in his brightly lit Bushwick, Brooklyn studio. Capturing an artist in his element is one of the things we do best–the afternoon light inspired us to really make his creations stand out. We couldn’t be more thrilled with our portrait of him, check out his interview for Beach Magazine  here.  Looking forward to seeing what he comes up with next!

On Set with Mac Demarco

It was so much fun having Mac DeMarco in our studio with his amazing band.  We couldn’t ask for a more lively and dynamic bunch of talented musicians! We fed off their energy and captured some great moments. Big thanks to Michelle Panache at Panache Bookings and to Katie Garcia at Captured Tracks for helping us coordinate with Mac! Make-up courtesy of the lovely and talented Juliet Jane. Can’t wait to see where Mac’s music takes him, but we hope it’ll lead him back to our studios soon!

American Cut’s John Meadow

It was a blast shooting the exceedingly charming and witty John Meadow for Manhattan Magazine.  We had the opportunity to shoot this fast-rising restaurateur inside his latest endeavor, American Cut.  He fit right into the edgy, art-deco feel of this modern Tribeca steak-house. We can’t wait to taste the fruits of his labor next time we’re in the mood for a good steak.

Erica Weiner in her Greenpoint Studio

so inspiring to photograph talented jewelry designer Erica Weiner and her business partner, Lindsay Salmon, at her studio space in Brooklyn. with a knack for detail and aesthetics, Erica quickly took her jewelry making from a stress relieving hobby to prominent force within the industry. we absolutely love her 1909 collection, which is named after the year that her grandmother was born.



enchanting collaboration: elk studios + fox fodder farms

Hello spring! elk studios and Fox Fodder Farms presents a sensual floral fantasy world! After taking portraits of based floral artist, Taylor Patterson in her Greenpoint, Brooklyn studio, we knew right away that we needed to collaborate together on a shoot. Taylor’s organic and lush arrangements together with Olga Postlachi’s vibrant make-up pallet, transformed our model into a glam rock Ophelia—a bold way to bring on spring after the harsh east coast winter! Styling by Jane Cebotari.
