A few months ago I found out that The Friends Of The Greenpoint Library were having a competition to find a muralist to paint an exterior wall on the Greenpoint Library. This was my submission. Unfortunately, I didn’t make the cut, but I thought I’d share my submission with you! Congrats to Leslie Wood who took the win!

Thanks,

This photographers ability is technical and devious. I never really know what kind of optical illusion he’s going to pull from under his sleeve, but he never fails to amaze me. Oh, I almost forgot. His name is Jeff Harris. Anyway, check it out. The story was written by Jess Torres and prop styled by Mariana Vera, of Halley Resources. It appeared in Siempre Mujer’s June/July 2013 issue, which is out on news stands right now.

The studio was on fire while we were shooting Siempre Mujer’s latest fashion story! The colors were hot and our model even hotter! The crew really came together to create an awesome story, and I think we all realized it from the very first shot. In the past we’ve produced our swimwear fashion features on the beaches of Mexico, St. Lucia and Miami, but this time around I wanted to try something different. I wanted to show case COLOR, bright popping color! So, I pitched the idea to our then executive/fashion editor, Ursula Carranza, our creative director, Stacy Marchelos and our editor in chief, Cristy Marrero, and they were all on board. Right from the jump I knew I wanted Tom Corbett to shoot, Stacey Jones to style, Javier Romero to do make up, Jeanie Syfu to do hair and Rupert Howard to build our set.  The only thing left to do was to find our model, the very talented Ebonee from MC2, who in my opinion took no prisoners in this story. She absolutely KILLED it! During the casting she took some really amazing graphic poses that easily convinced Ursula and I that she was the right pick for the story. Anyway, check it out for your self below. The beautiful layout was designed by our creative director, Stacy Marchelos! I’ve also included a few behind the scene shots.
