Portraiture session of NYC based interior designer and decorator Helaina Bernstein on-location in Upper West Side of Manhattan.
It was a relatively small assignment with my long-time and dear client – interior designer Anjali Pollack. She was revisiting one of her projects in Connecticut where she had done this charming nursery and bathroom.
Unfortunately for me the weather wasn’t kind to me and it was drizzling and ruined all my plans to take exterior photographs of this great mansion as well. No luck, and moreover the foliage was almost gone anyway(despite we had plenty here in NYC yet).
Well I got this beautifully designed and styled baby’s room
And attached there is this sweet bathroom
I loved this fairly small loft on 1 West 67th Street from the first glance. Probably because I’m personally not a fan of big apartments or houses for many reasons (not agoraphobic either though )
But this is really clean and simple dwelling where I’d feel comfortable.
Shot this loft last November for Marie-Christine Kresse interior design portfolio.
Owners keep this loft as a guest apartment actually.
It was a beautiful apartment in a great building. The photoshoot was challenging though – interior designed by talented designer Lisa Merkatz was finished mostly in whites. And that is always tough for me
But it is lovely and very livable! Judge for yourself:
I did this job more then a year ago, but I still wanted to publish it here since I love the result
Where is the best view on Manhattan? Not in Manhattan probably? There is a new residential complex named Sky View Parc which gives you the best view on Manhattan over the Queens.
I did this project photographing a few model apartments in this complex in January 2011. And I’d say it’s a lovely place to live actually.
Sky View Parc is a residential enclave featuring luxury condominium residences overlooking an expansive landscaped park. With breathtaking views that stretch over Citi Field, Flushing Meadows Park and the Long Island Sound to Manhattan, Sky View Parc is a new vision of luxury living in Flushing.
In an area rich with entertainment, sporting and cultural attractions, Sky View Parc redefines home ownership in the heart of New York City’s fastest growing and most vibrant neighborhood.
And you definitely will have great apartments at your disposal to design to your personal taste and to make it truly yours
These model apartments were designed by a highly experienced interior designer Kristina Jacob and I need to say it was a pleasure to work with her.
Almost a year ago I did this interior photoshoot for a designer portfolio.
It was a great loft located in Tribeca, Manhattan. The designer wanted to get photographs of dining area and living area. Unfortunately there were some limits in terms of choosing the angles because not everything was done by the same designer so we didn’t want to include kitchen in the pictures. Therefore I had to shoot dining room toward windows and living area. Which is not my favorite view in this case.
And separately I shot a detail view of living area, which I like a lot finally
And here is the full view of the living area, with a fireplace. I love every chance to have a fireplace to be lit (so many fake fireplaces in our life ).
It was a lovely summer day in July when we had this photoshoot of a beautiful new house in gated community of Port Washington on north shore of Long Island, NY. Again for portfolio of interior designer Christine Hopper.
A little bit too much sun outside for dealing with skylights but we managed it
And here is a couple of shots from 2nd floor rooms:
This is was an interior photography kind of work. But. In fact we were shooting for and with Linoto company which makes great linen stuff. It was quite fast-pacing and high-quality work, with 2 invited stylists and a lot of props. So we shot it in a loft and all interiors were staged and styled mostly by stylist Abby Walton and Jason Evege from Linoto.
Everything was styled to the way you would feel it like it’s home, not just a showroom, but real cozy and warm home. I think that the stylists did they job really great. there is fine balance between messy loose set and relaxed homelike atmosphere we achieved in these images.
This week was like week of interior designers’ portraits – I did 2 of them. This was the first job on that week, beautiful and talented Alicia, really great interior designer, with multi-years experience.
We were about to shoot both indoor and in Central Park at first, bit on the day of photoshoot the weather was quite windy so we dropped the idea of shooting outdoor (November in NYC is always tricky).
I think we got the great imagery despite the space was a little bit too tight so we couldn’t get full-body portrait, but it wasn’t my plan anyway. I quite like the incoming light and those birds in behind the windows
The whole light-colored interior was quite good setup for Alicia’s blonde hair also.
Alicia also is an avid traveler (looks to me she has lived all around the Europe), and she has done an international design jobs as well.
It was a very long and fast-moving fashion lookbook photoshoot. The team was working together for the first time and I hope we will have a chance to work again, I like the result very much!
Thanks to all:
Make-up and Hair – Wenya Chang – amazing work, all images you’ll see here are NOT touched for any skin or hair issues (and mostly straight out of the camera, just basic level/contrast/sharpening adjustments). During the whole shoot Wenya was all the time doing the right stuff in the right moment. No need to ask her – she fixes a problem before you see it.
Model – Micaela Piccolo – extremely professional and hard-working, I admire her because she almost couldn’t stand at the end of the very hard day but was able to smile! And what a smile she has!!!
And to me she has that look of Monica Bellucci – check the pictures below for yourself 😉
I had a nice relaxing morning drive to Berkshire area on last day of August. It’s always so inspiring to see all the beauty of the nature and those amazing old small towns. I was very well charged to photograph the interior so nicely created by Boston area interior designer Mary Courville. We worked together for the first time but I believe we did quite great job photographing this lovely house
This red-brick building along one of the city’s most chic stretches was converted into condominium apartments from a hotel in 1999. The building’s facade was cleaned but not substantially altered as it is within an historic landmark district.
The former hotel was always understated but attracted a very elegant and discrete clientele, including members of the Mellon family, because of its superb location and the fact that there were only two other major large luxury hotels on the Upper East Side, the Carlyle a few blocks north on Madison Avenue and the Stanhope on Fifth Avenue at 81st Street.
The 21-story building has only 47 apartments.
Interior of this particular apartment done by a finest interior designer – Brian Worthingthon.
Nice big house beautifully located in secluded area on North Shore of Long Island. Young mom with 3 great kids and challenge to have great design for all their rooms. And a win!
I love those small details that make every room unique and lovable.
It was amazing to find old communication system still working and in use. As well as in-wall Mail delivery system (just don’t know how they call it) – it’s really old copper/bronze thing, looks fantastic.
I was photographing there one bedroom apartment designed to be convenient and cozy. A lot of nice elements and details make the spirit of the place.

Probably one bedroom apartment isn’t enough for designer to fly high but this one designed to be cool, with flair of luxury and livable at the same time.
