Have you ever seen a picture of an exploding pollen tree? It’s a dramatic visual and the inspiration behind this amazing series of shots with Coco Rocha for Natural Beauty

It was so exciting for me to work with Coco as she just gives you everything. There’s also nothing more exciting for me as a photographer than to be able to work with someone who can really move. We covered her (and the entire studio) with explosions of colourful powder. The powders are actually the same as those used in India during the Hindu Holi festival to celebrate the colors of Spring. As she moved her body, the powder moved with her allowing me to capture that sense of drama and real-time motion.

 It was definitely one of my favorite shoots. Check it out in Episode 10 of ‘The Making of Natural Beauty’


Light painting in Paris with legendary makeup artist Karim Rahman

I always say, being in New York is like being in a movie, and being in Paris is like being in a painting. One of my favorite makeup artists is Karim Rahman. He is a true artist; a painter. Our collaboration in Paris for Natural Beauty was an inspirational experience. His contemporary and incredibly bold vision for the photoshoot resulted in some incredible shots, which really contrast against the more subtle, and gentle tone of the other shots I had taken so far. Take a look in Episode 7 – ‘The Making of Natural Beauty’ web series. Now live.
