SAFER SETS with UV-C Sanitizer with Moritz and Co

We did the research and found hospital-grade, proven, professional-grade, anti-viral UV-C sanitizers for hair, makeup, and wardrobe items that are not disposable that might be otherwise impossible to sterilize.

UV-C is the only way we have found to properly sterilize wardrobe soft goods without chemicals that might damage the item. UV-C is also the only way to sterilize hair extensions, tools, and certain makeup consumables.

We are proud to be the only production using these tools that we know of. We are glad to share our sources for other productions as everyone's health is the first priority, no matter what crew or production we all do better when we all stay safe and healthy. For more info contact team@jamesmoritz.

Vogue

NY is now officially issuing permits for Central Park Again!

Central Park has been the backdrop for many Vogue Covers and other shoots for luxury fashion and beauty campaigns.

Every brand I work with has the same concern... avoid looking bridal or overly commercial. This can be easily done by carefully choosing the locations and background textures while carefully co-ordinating with time to ensure the lighting and mood always elevates the brand.

The various locations in Central Park make it one of the best outdoor locations of choice in the city. Below I have curated some of the more famous photoshoots from Vogue and other iconic brands.
