New York Lifestyle Shoot | Rooftop

A couple of few weeks ago we had a meeting in New York and wanted to extend our trip and have a little fun. We collaborated with Courtney Rust, a commercial wardrobe stylist friend of ours here in Chicago. In less than a week we had a concept, models, hair, makeup and location.  Arriving in New York on Friday we settled into a quaint walkup in the East Village near Tomkins Park did some quick scouting then off to shopping for wardrobe. Courtney has an amazing talent of seeing colors and patterns and visualizing how everything will come together . While Stevi and Courtney were shopping I ran for coffee and gave my occasional appoval, but I have learned not to get in the way of women and shopping. Truly I trusted Courtney and knew she would do a fantastic job.  All in all we pulled for three scenes in a “girls afternoon out”.

Surrounding yourself with talented people, especially on a shoot like this, is vital.  Stevi produced the shoot by coordinating travel, lining up models, hair and makup.  She really made my job easy. I have to say the same for Kerry Crawford (makeup artist), Julius Toussaint (hair stylist), Courtney Rust (wardrobe stylist), and of course our models Shirley and Kathryn from Ford Models, all of whom are professionals and masters at their craft.  We focused on having a good time and collaborating on looks so everyone came out happy and had great images for their books. The images below are from the first scene on the roof of the apartment where we were staying.
