August 19th-23th, our guest was from the women clothing brand Dressbarn, they were here for the whole week shooting their winter catalog. It feels like Christmas again! Not only they transform the living room on 4th floor to a fully decorated Christmas party, but also we spent good time together celebrating. It was one of the most relaxed work atmosphere that exists in Bennett Media Studio, they also got a lot of work done every day. Here are some photos for a early Christmas!
This was a photo shoot with Gossip Girl's lead actor Chace Crawford at Bennett Media Studio. The photo shoot took place both at the event space on the first floor and upstairs in Ed's Kitchen and living room.
Chace was featured as the face of Diet Coke in Australia. Take a look at our exclusive behind-the-scene of the shoot .
Award-winning author and host of Bravo's hit show "Top Chef", Padma Lakshmi was at the Studio for a full day shoot for her new Show and for her new " Wine and Foodie Movie" series. Sterling Winery was also featured, with their impressive and tasty selection of cabernets, pinot noir, and chardonnay. During the shoot, there were quite a few bottles which disappeared amongst us.
Padma is best known for her Top Chef Show on Bravo. But she is also a popular fashion model, writer, actor and entrepreneur. Helmut Newton first captured the scar on her arm, and turned it into a fashion statement. From there she ascended the difficult path to becoming a " Super model", with Paris runways, magazine covers, and TV shows. The film career took off with Holywood and, given her Indian descent, Bollywood, where she has many credits. Or perhaps you saw her as the Egyptian Princess Bithia discovering the baby Moses in " The Ten Commandments" .
However, her instincts and passion for food is what makes her a talented chef. Her cookbooks are quite popular, full of exotic flavors yet residing on a low fat premise throughout. Maybe that has something to do with her keeping her trim shape so constant.
Robert Whitman was most brilliant at the shoot. His portfolio is one of the best I have ever seen.
A wine tasting will be scheduled in the Fall with the Sterling Wines.
