This week I had the opportunity to work with renowned violinist Yuki Numata. The contagious passion in her music coupled with New York City as our location could not have been more exhilarating for a shoot.
Yuki is pictured here on the Brooklyn Bridge right after sunset on a stormy afternoon.
Needless to say, our scene drew a sizeable crowd that once in a while asked to be photographed with our star.

Right before it started pouring, I had her stand in front of the Manhattan bridge. Look at those angry rain clouds.
And below, Yuki on a white seamless – one of those things that everyone seems to be raving about these days.
While photojournalism will always be my true love, I am utterly engrossed in portraiture these days. Oh, and I did her makeup for the first and last pictures.
