The Best Part

It might not be that obvious, and you definitely wouldn't be able to tell from looking at the photos, but the best part about my job has to be the people I get a chance to meet. The fashion industry definitely has its stereotypes, and yes you definitely run into, let's say, "challenging" people now and again, but for the most part I've had nothing but positive experiences. Like take this past week when I got a chance to shoot two Ukrainian girls fresh off the plane and brand new to NYC. They couldn't have been sweeter and they were so excited to be here in NYC! Seeing their eyes light up when spoke about going to the Empire State Building made me want to go and check it out for myself and I live 3 blocks away and never once thought about going up to the top. I'm just glad we didn't have a conversation about Times Square. Here are a few shots of Mariya. I found out a few days later that she was totally under the weather during this shoot and no doubt massively jet-lagged as well (she flew in the day before), but you would have never known it to shoot her, total professional.

I Can See The Finish Line

I am almost, almost caught up with all my re-touching. My recent trip back to Chicago to visit with family and clear my head a bit turned out to be more of a work trip than I had anticipated. I am just now finishing all the post production from that trip and right back to work here in NYC. If you want to gauge how behind I am I still haven't gotten to my taxes, FROM LAST YEAR! No worries, I filed the necessary paperwork for the extension so I have till Oct 15th which means I will be real busy the night of Oct 14th. But I wanted to post a few images of Natalia from last week. This Brazillian bombshell was a total sweetheart with a killer body as you can plainly see above. Thinking about a possible trip to Brazil this winter, you know it'll be summer there in February. . . . . . . . .
