Check it out! My image of David Choi swimming underwater with his guitar got published in the December 2013 issue of Rangefinder magazine. Wow I’m so thrilled to see my image on a photography magazine. Can’t wait to see the printed version.
During my stay in Williamsburg I caught up with my friend Andrew Castro. Andrew needed a few photos of him for a Nike project he’s been working on, so we got up in the wee hours of the morning and shot in beautiful 20*F weather. I love the cold! –said no one. It was worth it though I love the morning haze in Brooklyn.
Pardon me, I’m caught in suspension! …or rather I set up some lights in my room to take an updated passport photo of myself. Then I decided to turn the lights around to also make an updated Facebook photo.
During my month stay in New York I visited Harlem for the first time to photograph Shameless Maya. My friend introduced me to Shameless’s YouTube channel where her mantra of Be Shameless, Do You Boo, and not being afraid to shamelessly promoting yourself as an artist caught my attention. –You know how I love finding wacky people of character and quirk to take a portrait of! We shot around a bridge and even her dog Jackie decided to join us.
We made some friends along the way as well!
Little does the world know, I got Maya to smile like this by dangling myself off the ledge of an apartment building.
Thanks for this photo of me Maya!
It was one of those nights again. The L Train decided to completely stop running for a weekend and thereby creating a chaotic mix of frustrated New Yorkers and lost tourists. I was staying off Bedford in Williamsburg for a gig. The L Train is conveniently located a block away from my building, but since it was down I had to walk about a mile to use the J Train to get home. Oh wait it was one of those nights. The J Train also wasn’t running! Yay that meant I got to take the R Train, which goes way south of where I wanted to be.
Ironically I’m glad this detour happened. On the ride back home I encountered three hooligans jumping around and swinging off the rails in the cart. I enjoyed their spunk and ask if I could photograph them.
