Diverse New York City Faces

For the past few months I have been working closely with Sarah Foster, the senior manager of creative content ay Getty Images creating a collection of studio portraits that represents the diversity of people in NYC. We cast close to 50 people and have so far shot 25. From time to time I’ll be posting the images to my blog. I’ve been shooting for Getty for over 20 years and so far this has by far been my favorite project. It’s right in my wheel house. Above is native New Yorker and actor, Spawn.

Portrait of Yan

This is a recent portrait of Yan who I found on Model Mayhem. I shot this in color and processed into black and white using Topaz software. I liked the black and white better especially the platinum color hair against the dark background. She was good in front of the camera which always helps.
