16 Nov New York City Advertising Photographs | Iris Apfel
Ok so, for the record I actually shot these style icon portraits sometime ago, but I never posted her, which is really weird. So let’s get to it, reparations are due. I got this advertising portrait shoot through the good folks at Eyebobs who I met through the wonderful Martha Frankel and the Woodstock Book Fest . Eyebobs was a sponsor and we did a really fun photo shoot of many of the participants wearing some of the most fun eyeglass frames you can imagine. You can see many of the photographs on my website, I made a fun quick video of some of the faces that we saw. Anyway, getting back to what this post is all about, Iris Apfel had created a line of signature glasses for the Eyebobs company. I was asked to shoot something in a similar vein to what I did at the festival. So we all met up at a wonderful townhouse on the upper west side of Manhattan. When Iris sat down in front of my camera, I remarked that she looked like a rockstar, to which she replied, “Honey, I am a RockStar” And we were on!
Shoot went fast and seamlessly.
