What a great pleasure it was to be the event photographer for Yves-Andre Istel’s French Legion d’Honneur induction ceremony and dinner at the French Consulate in NYC and the French Institute Alliance Francaise. Msr. Istel’s induction ceremony was intimate and warm, certainly one of the most interesting people and events I’ve photographed. Yves’ wife Kathleen chose New York’s elite French catering team of Jean Christophe Le Picart and Michelin rated Chef Daniel Boulud at Feast & Fetes to handle food, service, and table decor for the elegant dinner which followed. The following day I photographed the family’s brunch with the French Consul General …

Recently I had the pleasure of working with one of Central Asia’s leading fashion and lifestyle magazines, Boulevard. I photographed top model Polina Protodyakonova for the magazine’s editorial pages. We shot beauty/swimwear on the beach in West Hampton and it was a lot of fun! The magazine wrote a nice profile on me and my work in the following issue. I don’t read Russian either but from what my Russian speaking friends tell me it was a pretty cool. I love shooting beauty photography, and I hope it shows in my images. Thank you Boulevard Magazine!
