Rue Magazine

I photographed a restored 1850’s farmhouse in Rhinebeck, NY for the most recent issue of Rue Magazine. The shoot was Art Directed & Styled by the so very talented Meagan Camp. After a day & a half of shooting we finished with 25 shots, which was too many for Rue to run- so Meagan & I pitched the story to the blog, Decor8 and an extended version ran on the site. A few days later The New York Times ran an article about the growth of online shelter magazines & featured Rue Magazine in the story, along with an image from our story chosen to represent Rue in the multimedia slideshow. It’s been so exciting to see the story grow & get exposure on multiple sites. Below is the original Rue article, followed by a snapshot of The NY Times slideshow. You can also check out the extended story (with more images!) on Decor8.

The Home Observer

My mother always said things happen in threes.  She was right.  I have three features in the Spring issue of The Home Observer… and one of my shots made the cover! Yahoo!  Unfortunately, you can’t get the magazine at a newsstand, so if you don’t subscribe to the NY Observer, check out The Home Observer here.  Or if you don’t want to read the articles, you can just look at the pictures below!

Modern Declaration

I was faced with a challenge;  capture custom furniture pieces in the spaces they live in & make the photos about the pieces, not the space.  This is hard to do when the rooms that the pieces live in are bold and breathtaking.  The challenge made it a really fun shoot, and we even managed to fit in a portrait of the talented and beautiful designer, Daun Curry.  Daun’s company is called Modern Declaration & the website is coming soon!

Update 11/24/10:  The Modern Declaration site is up!  Check it out!

Men at the Mall.

This summer I found myself begrudgingly at The Short Hills Mall in New Jersey.  While longing to leave (as I am not a fan of shopping, nonetheless at the mall!), I spotted these men.  Why were they at the mall?  Something tells me they have female counterparts shopping while they sit as if they are in the waiting room of a doctor’s office waiting for someone to come tell them the diagnosis.  My men at the mall diagnosis:

Husband: Bored & Poor. Wife: Who cares!  She’s got a whole new wardrobe!

Manhattan on a sunny Sunday

Areas of Manhattan most New Yorkers try to avoid: Times Square, 34th Street, Canal Street, and South Street Seaport.  I ventured all the way into Manhattan this weekend to check out the New Amsterdam Market at the old Fulton Fish Market location.  In order to get there, I had to walk by The South Street Seaport.  I haven’t been there in years.  Though very commericalized and filled with tourists, it’s actually quite pretty.  My friend, Sarah, had read about Bowne & Co. Stationers – so being that we were in the area, we stopped by.  If you ever find yourself down near the seaport and need to find a hideaway from the mob of  “I ‘heart’ NYC”  T-shirts, enter this little oasis… you’ll feel good.  I didn’t get the name of the man pictured below, but it seems as though he is there all the time and he could’ve been there back when the business started in the mid 1700’s.  He is reason alone to visit.  He’ll make you smile.
