What interested you about becoming
– After many years working as make up artist here in NYC, I was fortunate enough to work on sets of some great photographers, and I picked up a few tricks observing them while they did their pictures. Finally, I got the itch to pick up a camera, so I decided to take some photo classes at ICP in NYC.
Where do you find inspiration to
make your photographs?
– From people around me, such as athletes at my gym, and friends. It's such a great way to get to know someone and also to show them in different light- in a way they might never seen themselves before. Also, I love letting my imagination run wild, reading books, mythology, news stories, etc
What do you most like to
– Athletes, portraits, still life, real life drama, streets scenes and some beauty,too. As a Make Up artist, my work is only a part of the big picture. Taking photographs myself allows me to dream up the whole big picture now, and take control of all the elements. It's challenging but very rewarding.
Who are your favorite photographers?
– Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz were all photographers I was fortunate enough to work on sets with as a make up artist. Some other photographers who inspire me are Horst P Horst, Steve McCurry, Raghubir Singh, Helmut Newton, Brian Brake, Cindy Sherman, Herb Ritts, Edward Steichen.
