Emily Ratajkowski for REVOLVE Clothing

emily-gif-final-615

There is nobody hotter right now than Emily Ratajkowski, which made her a perfect fit to be the face of REVOLVE‘s new makeover of their trendy fashion shopping site. We flew out to L.A. this past January to shoot a Cinemagraph of her for REVOLVE at MILK Studios.

As a photographer and someone who does not play by the 9-to-5 rules you never know when you’re going to get a call like this, an aspect of the job I love. One minute we are out in the country and two days later, we’re on the West Coast for only 24 hours, jumping on airplanes, walking onto sets or locations you cannot anticipate and being challenged to create something in 30 minutes or less. Of course it can sometimes make planning family vacations tricky and I’ve had to cancel many dates with friends last minute, but that’s what happens when you love what you do.

Sometimes you have complete control of the shoot and vision but other times, the vision has parameters within the client’s needs. We were given our subject, a white studio, one light and very little time. I asked to see the new website design and drew inspiration for our cinemagraph off the cleanness, simplicity, contrast and above all youthful cool vibe of REVOLVE’s new look.

We all know Emily is major sexy so I wanted to hint at that with an open leather jacket on bare skin but I also wanted her to have a relaxed James Dean coolness. We propped her up against the studio cyclorama, I framed her in a landscape pose to fill the hero spot of the website design, and had her move around a bit until she started naturally playing with her ripped up jeans and then a gaze to the camera and we were done.

I want to be that cool, that confident, that sexy, that girl… just like REVOLVE is making possible.

Seeing New York

As a photographer I show you the world through my lens on a daily basis. We all look at New York, she demands our focused attention. I’ve been thinking about the art of looking. The importance of focusing and what we see. This past March I bought a pair of Giorgio Armani frames in Geneva, classic per usual, and I decided to put them in front of the frame. To see what I see.

To show you a day in New York through my lens

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

1963 Lincoln Continental / Styling: Kelly Framel / Creative Direction:  Maury Postal / Makeup: Porsche Cooper / Hair: Francis Anthony Rodriguez / Sierra wears: custom flower crown; earrings by Eddera; diamond moon necklace, stone necklace, and rings by Jessie Lane; metal spike necklace by Biko, cuff by La Petite Princesse; vintage vest and dress from Early HalloweenTrue Religion jeans

It’s a revolution in an ever-changing world. The 1960s can at times be hard to understand, but can also be very intimate and soft. We were independent in a way we had never experienced before and maybe that is because we lost a lot and we loved a lot — and through the love we drove on and made it through…

  

The 1963 Lincoln Continental (a car often associated with JFK) was like a finely-tailored Italian suit; its elegant simplicity set the tone for a whole generation—they explored a more minimalistic way of living. The ’60s weren’t a decade of excess, they were a decade of young people finally having a voice in shaping their country.

It is with great honor Lincoln asked us to capture the romance of time through a series of Cinemagraphs with their classic cars so that we may all keep the memory of love going at any speed.
