Working with Elara on new looks.
I don’t really think I need to explain anything here except… love to shoot, love who you shoot, and shoot who you love.
It’s been a few years since being commissioned by Simon Schuster to shoot the cover of The Mind Beauty Connection, Dr. Amy Wechsler’s book about reverse stress aging and revealing more beautiful skin. So it was especially nice to re-connect with Amy and make new promotional images of her in her uber cool NYC 69th street office. Amy contributes regularly to numerous magazines including: Marie Claire, Glamour, Woman’s Health, Shape, Redbook, Bazaar, Self and W to name a few. Amy is a good soul and lovely person who connects well with people and the camera and is just a pleasure with whom to share time . It was especially enjoyable to make these images more about Amy and her style. Plus nothing bad can come with a good team of assistants, make-up and wardrobe. Along with making new images of Amy, I did the same with Gervaise Gerstner a board certified dermatologist providing care in the same office.
I can now talk about a project I shot a few months back – The Mind Beauty Connection because it’s finally released! We were contracted by Simon and Schuster to shoot the cover of Dr. Amy Wechsler’s book. After meeting with Amy in her office on Park Ave., we confirmed the look, feel and style for the cover which was ultimately our focus. Our client wanted Amy to look natural, healthy, vibrant, confident and beautiful, basically like herself.
