One of the things I love most about my job is that each day and job bring a unique challenge and a new story. My days range from producing, designing sets, scouting locations and art directing along with styling shoots for a diverse list of clients. I grew up in a creative household with a mother who was a puppeteer and a father who was a photographer and owned a movie theater in a church in Woodstock NY. I literally grew up in the movie theater watching art films every night with my dog, Harpo. I have been designing for as long as I can remember—first creating clothes for Barbie and later for myself, as well as constantly redecorating my room. Never imagining it would all lead to this career. At 20, while studying fashion and display design at Parsons, I started Woojee Wear, a line of kids clothing sold across the country in boutiques and department stores. From there I grew to realize that my true interests were in creating images and began my work as a freelance stylist.
Marie-Josée Leduc Makeup + Hair + Skincare
From the early age of 10, Marie-Josée has been fascinated with makeup. Using a blend of coloring crayons and her mother’s makeup, she began adding shapes and color onto famous people’s images, making this her very first makeup assignment. “She couldn’t wait for her father to finish reading his newspapers so that she could redesign all the printed faces”. Influenced by her mother’s artistic sensibilities ~ a trained classical pianist who would often bring her along to enjoy rehearsals of classical recitals, she fell in love with the colorful costumes, the extravagant wigs and the over-the-top makeup looks. Marie-Josée began working as a makeup artist whilst studying Fashion Design/Fashion Merchandising in Montréal. At age 16, designers would seek her creativity to created makeup looks for their upcoming fashion shows. Known for her flawless dewy skin with an edge of color, Marie-Josée’s signature style has gained her considerable recognition in the industry. She understands the need to achieve perfect beauty, to be glamorous while celebrating a radiant skin. It is not surprising that she added her own skincare line to the mix. She believes that a healthy glowing skin is the first step toward achieving her signature look. Her French skincare line Odièle is 100% natural, organic and cruelty-free. It’s the functional indulgence for a girl on the go – effortless, effective, and dripping luxury and in conjunction with her makeup, it creates a finished dewy look that last for hours without ever looking dull or dry. An art, music and nature lover, an outdoor enthusiast, conservationist and an animal activist, Marie-Josée’s friendly personality and witty sense of humour along with her exceptional talent are the key-ingredients that will continue to bring her success in beauty, fashion and life. Marie-Josée resides in New Paltz and NYC.

Event clients include the Brooklyn Public Library, Tata Consulting Services, Teneo, and Weeks Marine. In 2009, Mallon produced Brace for Impact: The Salvage of Flight 1549, a series of photographs recorded the salvaging of the passenger aircraft which captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger landed on the Hudson River. In 2010, his solo exhibition Next Stop Atlantic documented the disposal of New York subway trains at sea to form artificial coral reefs. He was commissioned by the New York Times Magazine to shoot the film Behind The Curtain, a time lapse movie documenting two days behind the scenes of the Metropolitan Opera in 2013. Mallon’s projects often require months or years of production. His short film about the transportation and installation of the new Willis Avenue Bridge was created from over 30,000 still images. The film, “A Bridge Delivered,” was reviewed by the Wall St Journal, New York Magazine, GQ, PDN, andWIRED. It was then screened in five festivals in New York, Los Angeles and Bristol, England. Stephen’s project following the MTA’a artificial reef project where over 2000 subway cars were placed in the Atlantic was shown at The New York Transit Museum’s Grand Central Terminal Gallery. Over 60,000 people experienced the exhibition and was featured by Gothamist, Artnet, Yahoo, Fox News, and numerous other outlets. As David Schonauer wrote in Pro Photo Daily, “Mallon’s word harkens back to the heroic industrial landscapes of Margaret Bourke-White and Charles Sheeler, who glorified American steel and found art in its industrial muscle and smoke during the Great Depression.” He has also been compared to photographers including Edward Burtynsky, Thomas Struth and Chris Jordan. “Machines Of Interest”, a curated selection of Mallon’s workt was on display at the National Museum of Industrial History for over nine months and is now at the Johnstown Area Heritage Association until spring of 2022. Mallon served as a board member of the New York chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers from 2002 until 2020 and served as president from 2006 to 2009. He is represented by Front Room Gallery in New York.
