Last month i did a photo shoot in Manhattan, a week before i went to London. This was one of the quirkiest requests I’ve ever received. Apparently three young women visiting from Turkey, wanted to have some photos done while they were sight-seeing. Here is a quote from the initial email, “…We just don’t want to stop somebody in the street and ask to take our photo anymore…”. I didn’t know what to think of it.
After a few phone conversations, I went to meet these young women outside The Plaza Hotel. We ended up having a blast in what turned out to be a rainy Sunday afternoon. This was one of the most easiest and fun shoots ive done. The “Turkey 3” were such great sports! Have a look at Tania…oh did I mention how gorgeous these gals are? Check Tania out, how beautiful is she?
Yes, I know we’re in February now, but throw in a last minute trip to London for my Uncle’s Funeral, a huge workload throughout January, a virus on my studio computer and you have a blog post late by one month. These photos are my favorites that were taken in: Jamaica, Arizona, Brooklyn-NY, and Capital Hill-Albany. So, without further ado, here are my favorite pro-photos of 2009. Thank you for allowing me to be inspired by all of you.
In February, I traveled to England to visit my family. My Dad is the proprietor of Atini Guest House near Addiscombe, which is in the boro of Croydon. Atini is a beautiful Victorian Mansion on Grant Road in a quiet area of London. The property is full of details and architectural delights. I just adore the color scheme throughout the house! Here are some pics I took of the property while staying there; more images can be found in the set on Flickr.
I figured, why not start the shoot at the very top of the house, right underneath the skylight.
A pot of tea in every room : )
Wonderful weather on the day I took these pictures! I only had on a long sleeve t-shirt in February! Oh, and be sure to check out the rave reviews they are getting on TripAdvisor!
I found this guy catching some rays in the back garden.
