Richard Machado New York advertising photographersA creepy boat, raised from the depths of the Hudson River, inspired Brazilian photographer Richard Machado to create a haunting editorial for the magazine New York Moves.
Shooting on this old boat proved to be a challenge: steady waves rocked the boat back and forth, complete darkness in the belly of the ship, cramped quarters to set up complicated lighting - all with only a few hours to shoot.
Thank goodness for the high spirits of his team - they all had a lot of fun while pulling off a memorable shoot.

ANSGAR New York fashion photographersPolice intervention was necessary to protect Ansgar and his team from the midnight crowd at Times Square, where the photographer produced a new fashion spread. Major Model Mgt. hotshot Amanda Del Valle portrayed famous "Revolutionaries" of the past, ranging from Che Guevara to Mary Magdalene. In one spectacular scene, the crowd, being somewhat "under the influence", mistook the French flag for an anti-American statement.
Emotions finally calmed down and hundreds peacefully watched on as Diane da Silva and Seiji Yamader fixed make up and hair. The shoot lasted half the night.
Styling was by Emma Pritchard.

One Naked Egg New York photo agents
One Naked Egg photographer Sabine Scheer grew up in Germany, and is now based in New York. Her work is described as "unique with a whimsical air of order". And people say that you "can't help to fall in love with her visual voice the moment you see her work".
The image shown here is not a poodle; it is a Bedlington Terrier, a noble, and somewhat snobbish, English hunting dog… Evidently, Sabine grew up photographing him and he is now her best model. Apparently, whenever the dog sees a camera, he starts posing!
Clients include: Nikon Europe, Procter & Gamble, Masterfoods, Kikkoman, Goldwell, IVECO.
Torkil Gudnason New York advertising photographersOriginally from Denmark, Torkil Gudnason approaches photography with what might be described as a no-nonsense, Scandinavian sensibility. His style is simple and graphic. He prefers shooting in color in order to play various hues off one another. When asked to list five things he can’t live without as a photographer, his answer is appropriately succinct: light, light, light, light and more light.
As a 10-year-old boy, Torkil received his first camera, a Bolex Super-8. His first pictures were of a trip to Italy, which is where, many years later, Torkil would find his first success as an emerging fashion photographer.
Torkil’s photography has appeared in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Detour and Esquire. Advertising clients include Elizabeth Arden, Maybelline, Pantene, Max Studio, Neiman Marcus, Kodak, MAC Cosmetics, L’Oreal, Shiseido, Estee Lauder, Calvin Klein and Victoria’s Secret.
Daniela Stallinger New York fashion photographers

She also shot a soon-to-be married celebrity couple, actors Jennifer Finnegan, (“Close To Home”) and Jonathan Silverman as they fashioned the latest wedding garb in the latest issue of InStyle Weddings.
Spencer Jones New York advertising photographersShooting still life isn't all clothing and jewelry... as proof, Spencer Jones presents Exhibit A: photographing a real frog on a block of ice.

When not posing amphibians or dodging bullets, Spencer can be found shooting clean, crisp still lifes for Instyle, Barrons, Field and Stream, Life, Bloomberg, Marie Claire, and Travel & Leisure Golf.

Primus New York rental studios
Primus was an experiment that actually turned out bigger than envisioned. It was "a rebuttal to the incalculable sameness of rental studios... four white walls and a cyc, standard issue catering and overpriced equipment".
It was designed by two photographers who wanted a workspace that would be a photographer's tool, like a certain film or a lighting technique. The studio is old New York industrial in its roots, tempered with artisan wall treatments and modern Italian furnishings. It is a location with the amenities of a full service studio.
That's why photographer James Russell chose Primus for his French client. Using his creativity and lighting skills, James made beautiful images for the PLD lingerie campaign.
They say: "Primus is a space that is a muse!"
