When I do editorial photo shoots I always wait excitedly to see which images the editor selects for publication.  I love seeing their vision emerge from the roll of photographs I deliver.  It is often totally different from what I would expect…in a good way.  The day I spent photographing the ladies of Two Penny Blue for Matchbook Magazine yielded some great shots, and I loved the soft white light feel Matchbook choose.  There were also some fun moodier images from the day.  Here are more from that shoot.

The other week I photographed the lovely and talented Marie Whitney and Erin Gates for a feature in Matchbook Magazine.  The article highlights their newest clothing and charitable venture Two Penny Blue.  As they describe it, “Two Penny Blue is a collection of luxury jackets and blazers that combines thoughtful classic design with fine fabrics.”  On top of designing some great fitting blazers in some killer fabrics, with every jacket purchased, they donate a school uniform to a girl in need in Africa.  Although school is often free, each year millions of girls are denied the opportunity to attend school because they can not afford a school uniform.  Looking great and helping to empower girls, what is better than that?!?!  I had a great time photographing them and tried on a few blazers myself.  They are fabulous!  Below is the spread from the issue, but go to page 72 to read the full feature.

P.S. See if you can spot the peonies my intern found and I blogged about last week.

As a thank you, I was lucky enough to get my hands on this fantastic mint number.  It runs very true to size and fits like a dream.

Our photo shoot for Matchbook Magazine required a handful of images, but I couldn’t help myself.  The studio space of Jill Rosenwald and Lawrence McRae is a whole floor of white light, saturated glazes and ceramic loveliness.  Not to mention Jill is the acting mother hen and mentor to a whole bunch of us creative types in the additional studio spaces on the floor.  The place just exudes joy.

Matchbook Love

July 6, 2011

If you have not already checked out the latest issue of Matchbook Magazine (an online lifestyle publication and “field guide to the charmed life” as they call it) pop on over there now and flip to page 60.  I had the pleasure of photographing the talented duo, Jill Rosenwald and Lawrence McRae and their gorgeous studio.  The two create beautiful ceramic lamps, dinnerware, platters, bowls, vases and even design rugs.

Some of the selected photos form the feature I photographed.

On a side note, I also happen to rent my little studio space from them on the same floor so I get to see them almost daily, but it was a special treat to really dive into their world and photograph their studio.
