I knew I wanted to do a summer swim story, and in typical James New York style I knew I wanted to do it in a big way. What better backdrop for a glamorous pool photo shoot than the New York City skyline?
I had fun scouting locations for this shoot. New York City is full of amazing rooftop pools if you know where to look. Once I saw the pool at the James Hotel Soho I knew it was the one. 360 degree views of Manhattan, from Uptown to Downtown. It also helped that the hotel is named after my blog. 😉
I matched the glamorous location with a sexy Lifeguard Brief by Charlie by MZ, one of the hottest swimwear brands around right now. This one is lapis, which is a great color to really make your summer tan pop by the way.
When you do visit the James Hotel Soho, they have a great pool party in the evenings. Or if you are looking for a more quiet scene, go first thing in the morning when the pool opens and you will have the water and the city all to yourself. Just you and the skyscrapers…
