Royal Pains ... Catalina on USA Network

I've been going to Catalina Beach Club on Long Island, NY, well, since I was born. My grandfather built Catalina in the 1940s & it's been owned & operated by my family ever since. Even though I've lived in FL for over 25 years, I spent many summers there until I got a "real" job 3 years ago. I still go back every year with friends & family. It's one of my favorite places to photograph.

Catalina's old deco appeal is no stranger to big productions. Scenes in Goodfellas & Far From Heaven were filmed there. Herb Ritts photographed Sylvester Stallone there in 1985 for the cover of Vanity Fair & more recently Beyoncé was there for a shoot. The club has hosted many fashion shoots from Vogue & Glamour to the SI Swimsuit Issue. It's also a favorite location for tv commercials & catalog shoots.

Tonight was the debut of a great new series on USA Network called Royal Pains. Last September I watched them film part of the series at the club. Tonight I got so see my cousins Andy, Sandra, Valerie, Molly & Ashley as "extras" in the show. Check it out ... Thursday nights at 10pm.

During the shoot, I met Mark Feuerstein, the star of the show. Nice guy.

They converted one of the upstairs Oceanview cabanas into a motel room set.
