This year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House was amazing! Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a magnificent estate into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. All proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Club. This was its second year in Palm Beach (its been going on in New York since 1973) and once again one of the decorators chose to use some of my work to adorn his walls. Billy Ceglia chose a whopping 48 images from my @a.social.life series and framed them up and down the hallways he was tasked with designing. In addition, I was given free reign to explore the house and take pictures of the designers and shoot more photos for my @a.social.life. Many of the designers hired me to shoot the rooms and my photos were featured by Veranda and Architectural Digest.
I often get compared to Slim Aarons (what a compliment!), but when a publication as esteemed as Veranda starts throwing it around I can’t help but be flattered…and honored…and grateful. Hopefully I can live up to the compliment. Check it out below.
It was an amazing experience to both have my work on display at the Inaugural Kips Bay Decorators Show House in Palm Beach and shoot some of it for Architectural Digest and House Beautiful. Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a magnificent estate into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. This year marks the first time it is being done in Palm Beach. All proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Kips Bay and Palm Beach County.
My mother and I had a photo show in Palm Beach. Did I mention she's a bad ass photographer in her own right? Victoria Mele, go check here out. She does large scale prints of flowers close up. Anyway, we had a show at EMKO in Palm Beach. Remember them? I did a fashion shoot there awhile back. Man, I keep going of on these side tangents.... One more time from the beginning. My mom and I had a photography show and it went awesome. Lots of people showed up, we sold a ton of work and both the Palm Beach Daily News and The Palm Beach Post wrote stories on it! Cool, right?
I did a photo shoot with famed Opera star Diana Damrau for the the clothing store Escada and Town & Country online. It was a lot fun and I thought I'd share. Check out the full story here:
We're back with another fashion spread for M&V magazine. I'm a few months behind in posting this, but I figured better late than never. This time we were at the private airfield in Boca Raton where the awesome Vida Jets let us shoot on some of their planes. Check out the full story here:

In December, I did a shoot for UK based clothing company Body Frock. They came to Palm Beach and we focused on the company's new line of wedding and bridesmaid dresses. They wanted a real natural, somewhat moody feel to the photos and I tried to give the whole shoot a bit of a 35mm film look (even though I shot on digital). Check out more of the shots here: Body Frock Website
I'm back for another fashion spread in Palm Beach with Muses & Visionaries magazine. This time the shoot was loosely inspired by Slim Aarons, one of my all time favorite photographers. Go check out his book, Poolside. So we tried to go for a 70's era Palm Beach look in the clothes and aesthetic and I tried my best to blend Slim's use of wide shots and overheads with the need to show off the clothes and style. It is a fashion shoot after all. These are the results. Find the magazine near you: http://magazinemv.com/about/where-to-purchase
