This fashion editorial was shot for "Cowgirl Magazine" in front of the Flatiron building, in Grand Central Terminal and Times Square. We shot 8 looks plus a cover and some video. We started this process in the Park Ave. studio at 10 am. Normally I would start at 7 or 8 am but I knew I wanted to shoot some night shots and I wanted to try and not run over 10 hours total. We left the studio and walked towards the Flatiron building. I wanted to start shooting on the long park benches along Madison Park.
The wardrobe stylist pulled the first look and we left with Gintare dressed in that look and the stylist brought 3 more changes with him. We then moved inside the park, then the subway shot and then shot the B&W outfit where Gintare is stepping off of the curb.
We then walked back to the studio to re-roll the hair and change and grab some more changes. The move to Grand Central Terminal was via the subway that runs under Park Ave South. Not want to call attention to the shoot Gintare and I walked into the main hall and started to shoot. I did not like the angle so I walked out into the main hall a bit and sat down and shot there. From Grand Central we grabbed 2 taxis to Times Square to finish off the shoot.
