Vogue Italia

I didn’t have many “dreams” when I started the blog.  But, one of the only pipe dreams I had was to someday shoot something for Italian Vogue.  I never imagined that it would actually happen, but it was just something that I had, and that drove me.


So, I am extremely humbled to share with you a shoot that I did for Vogue Italia for their August edition.  Even though I had done things for Vogue Pelle before, you can’t imagine my shock and awe when I got the call about shooting something for Franca.


It’s funny.  When you get the call about doing something you’ve always wanted to do, you wonder – can I really do this?  But I was very happy with the result.  It was very fun to work with Patti Wilson and the incredibly high level of skill and talent she brings to a shoot.  It was also great to have the chance to shoot cool young ladies such as Keira Chaplin, Poppy Delevigne, Vanessa Traina, and the Richards sisters.


You can see all the shots and a behind-the-scenes video online at Vogue Italia, here.

    Congratulations. Getting into your favorite magazines is a personal goal for many photographers and I love hearing when someone gets there. Like the voyeuristic feel.

    Italian Vogue does stand out as being especially polished and artistic. They are lucky to have Scott work with them, however. He is an amazing photographer.

    Congratulations on your success! What lovely photographs. It is no surprise to me that Italian Vogue commissioned you for a photo shoot. Your photos are inspirational, aspirational, and accessible, at at once, not to mention lovely. Your blog is my favorite. Bravo. :)
