Ahhhhhh Yes! These are the shoots that people associate with hand models. Whenever someone finds out what I do for a living, the first thing they ask (after the George Costanza question) is do I do mostly jewelry ads. There are a lot of jewelry ads, yes, most definetly…. but more often than not, I’m working with food… So I do really enjoy these glittery days where there are men with guns making sure I don’t “RUN! RUN!!” (as my friend Melissa texted me to do when I told her I was wearing a 30 million dollar ring on my finger.)
This was one of those glittery days for Glass Magazine. There were four guys with guns on this set. I didn’t run away
Thinking about buying a home?? Ahhh! One day, I look forward to turning the key in the door of my own home. Till then I’ll turn keys for the magazines! Check out this month’s issue of Smart Money Mag for a great article for first time buyers and check out my key turning hand model skills on page 71!
The May issue of Paper Mag is out NOW 🙂 Amazing nail creations by Naomi Yasuda!!!
Naomi’s nails are incredible, her attention to detail is amazing!! a subway sub on a nail!!!
Lookey the lil cheesburgers n fries! Incredible!!
Always a cool day to be Naomi’s hand model. I have a favorite memory of a shoot involving dangling chain mail from the nails and scratching a male models torso.
Wonderful skies and new friends at Monica Stevenson’s studio overlooking The Hudson River.
Just got my hands on a Nikon ad from a shoot with photographer Forest Barber. I love how it turned out.
There are so many steps to each advertisement out there.. From the concept to the creation, by the time I get to the set, many months of research, development and testing have already gone on.
I was booked for day #2 of a shoot for Samsung. day #1 was the face gal. They shot with me for a few hours holding the camera up to my face with my hair slicked back and in a few different tops. After they got several shots the client liked they combined the face gals pic with mine and that got them to the shot they had visualized. 🙂
Just found this ad from a shoot I did last fall for KitchenAid. 🙂 The shoot was out in PA and I had a blast with everyone.
My mom found the copy of my Shop Smart cover!
Thanks MOM for getting me this 🙂
Check it out, on stands NOW!
I am very excited to share some pics by one of my favorite artist photographers, Tom Chambers. His work is compelling and intriguing. I can still remember the first image I ever saw from his collection, it was a little red haired girl with a greyish stripe across her eyes in a black & white dress with a dolls head on fire.. He showed it to me 10? years ago and the images has never left me. It is so hauntingly beautiful. So I had been wanting to work with him for years, yearning to make it to one of his canvases. & finally on a freezing cold day, he had me leap about barefoot in the street and stand on tip toe and cuddle carpets in my old prom dress.
