It’s one thing for stylists to want to grab a snap of their work when a shoot is wrapped, but when you are working with a whole salon full of them you just go with it and grab that camera and maybe turn the whole thing into a bit more behind the scenes portrait fun.
A look behind the scenes at some of the craziness my team and I can get up on a shoot. This video shows you some of the action on set during a very colorful and messy portrait shoot with Cricket Gordon and Elaine Pyne for Buffalo Spree. I’m excited to be able to share the final images from this story with you next week,
I infrequently post behind the scenes images from productions, but this past week I was afforded the opportunity to shoot an assignment for my longtime client, Bella Visage International, inside of one of the most wonderful locations Buffalo NY has to offer – The Silverthorne Mansion – and I could not resist sharing some of them.
And finally, one of the whole crazy gang.

A few outtakes from yesterday’s shoot with Jessica Jean. I had seen this pile of marble from the roadway a while back, and taken a few pictures of it while out walking dogs, but I had wanted to use it in a major project for some time. Jessica was out with us on this assignment and the final series will be coming soon, but here are some outtakes and a preview in the meantime.
Mr. Chops decided to visit the set today
Walking over rocky terrain in a skirt like that can be precarious at best.
The pile of slabs.
The first finished preview. This will be quite the series when its complete, so stay tuned.
Some crew shots from yesterday’s shoot with the crew of netsetjet.com. These intrepid travelers are about to leave on a month long adventure across the country. Flying on Jet Blue’s All you Can Jet Pass and documenting their trip along the way.

I had the rare opportunity to go out shooting for fun earlier this week with colleague Zach Rose and subject Yuri Polyachenko. I also managed to get a bunch of camera phone shots while walking around the area we were shooting in. A beautiful waterside park along Route 5 in Buffalo.

A range of ties provided by the wonderful Bethany Shorb of Cyberoptix Tie Labs, I plan on getting a few of these designs for myself. I’m a little bit in love with the chartreuse and pink lotus tie.
Our wonderful model; Lauren. Who was a savior on this particular shoot.
Hairstylist April Grigajtis will blow you away.
