The 20/20 edit and art team turned seafarers for a day on one of our most adventurous photo shoots yet. We set sail on the Staten Island Ferry with our mobile crew of photographer Stephen Sullivan, Art Director Iris Johnson and our models decked out in the season’s hottest sunwear. As Lady Liberty saluted us with the sun shining brightly and the Lower Manhattan skyline as our backdrop, we turned the ferry into our own floating studio. After a full day of sailing through New York Harbor, we all earned our nautical stripes—rocking the boat AND the shoot.
