Miss Popularity?

The Museum of Femorbilia section of BUST Magazine is always my favorite section to photograph because the vintage products or games they feature are always pretty hilarious. This Miss Popularity Game that "all girls loved to play," was especially funny and disturbing at the same time. Get the scoop on the game from Mike Motzart of the Toy Channel here.

MAD MEN inspired shooting with no budget

"Your inspiration for this shot is MAD MEN" was the direction I received from art director Erin Wengrovius at BUST Magazine a couple months ago. This shot is for the fun and fabulously nostalgic Museum of Femorbila section that is in every issue. This Museum of Femorbilia article happens to be on one of the first typewriters that was geared towards women in the 60s. Fortunately, I happen to love MAD MEN and between prop stylist Stephanie Hanes and my personal collection of 60s objects we pulled this off with no budget. The desk lamp happen to come directly from my mother's old drafting table when she worked as a designer at an advertising agency in the 60s, so it truly played the part.

Even though the images were for different articles, they go together in some ways.

Edible Brooklyn Winos

A few months ago, I was called to photograph various Brooklyn wine stores for Edible Brooklyn's summer story "Stomping Grounds." The original assignment was to photograph the stores and their displays. However, last minute the editor asked if I could get some quick shots of the store owners. The interesting part of that request is that most clients pigeon hole me into being a "still-life" photographer and would be hesitant to ask me to do this. Yet, I still enjoy photographing people and if you do know me on a personal level I am a people person. I love meeting new people, especially other people that enjoy wine like I do! The ironic part of this assignment is that nothing that I was originally asked to shoot made it into the story...only the portraits. Regardless, it was fun and I met some really interesting "wine guys." Some of the Brooklyn stores included Red, White and Bubbly, Sip, Thirst and Brooklyn Wine Exchange.
