Vassily Primakov

Vassily is a brilliant classical pianist and one of our best family friends…

He has several new CDs coming out within the next 6 months and when he asked me for a photo shoot to produce the covers of those CDs – it was both a pleasure and a privilege :)…

The shoot consisted of 2 parts:

Part one – more casual – in a natural light – images mostly meant for headshots and for the back of the CD jacket…

Part 2 – formal session for the front of the CD cover… Since we wanted him with a piano in the shot we shot the second part in his home which involved some very creative use of space – as let me tell you, it is not easy to fit even 1 light with a large softbox in a Manhattan living room that contains 2 grand pianos 🙂
