Memorial day is filled with backyard BBQ's and trips to the beach. I on the other hand spent yesterday shooting two amazing girls in Brooklyn. First was Katya, who flew in from Russia the previous night and had never been to NYC before. Even though she was suffering some major jet-lag, she had the best attitude and was super sweet? "Why do so many people speak Spanish here?" she asked, "I don't know Katya, ask Lou Dobbs." Next was Amelia, with those gorgeous blue-green eyes and that accent, I could have shot her all day just to listen to her speak! And she moved like a dream. What is it with these Aussie models, they rock! That's it Martin, move over buddy, I'm coming to Australia. . . . . . Although that 33 hour flight is going to be brutal. All in all I must say my memorial day was quite a wonderful experience. And I got a pretty bad ass farmer tan to boot. . . . . . . . . p.s. you can view the story "Do You Believe In Rapture" here.

Everyone says I shouldn't use it because you can't see what I look like! I say that's probably a good thing. . . . . . . . . . . . You can make out the tambourine though, and isn't that what photography is really all about. I don't even know what that means!

Here are a couple images from a Steampunk story I shot. What is Steampunk you ask? Well, I'm still not sure, except to say that I think its where the Industrial Revolution meets Jayne Eyre. Do to some inclement weather, we shot half in my apt and half on my roof. I can't wait to see the final result! . . . . . I think a stove pipe hat would be a good look for me? So Gangs of New York.

There are alot of inspirational statements and slogans out there like "Without risk there is no reward" etc. I saw this one and I liked the fact that it centered around the act of creativity. We can all use an inspirational kick in the pants now and then. So here is my figurative boot to your behind.

I knew there was a reason I was getting so much attention lately. People like me better now that I have a beard! That's what I have been missing all these years. All those dateless years in High school, all I needed was to hit puberty and I would have been prom king! . . . . . . or at least had a date for prom. I must admit however, it's love or hate. I either have girls coming up to me asking if I'm in a band or wanting to stroke my beard, others tend to cross the street and clutch their purse, there is no middle ground. If you would like a t-shirt featuring the above image go here.

I am going to start posting images from the web that I find either inspirational or just plain rad. I will try to keep fashion photography out of the mix because, duh, my work should inspire you enough. The first post is all about urban art which I'm fascinated by and jealous of. They're are some really creative people out there who look to create art in the most mundane places and above you will find an example. You can also discover more if you click here.

This is by far my favorite commercial, probably of all time. It makes me laugh every time I see it. It has been on hiatus for about a year, but I just saw it on ESPN and now you can see it anytime you want. I'm so excited to watch TV again! OK, maybe that's going a little too far.
