I am always amazed by the difference in taste and style between me, my clients, models & spectators. It's a nice little reality check that I always welcome.. yes, there are photos out there that I take that I hate that others love and vis versa...The peoples choice is:
1st of hopefully many test shoots with Wilhelmina Models
I try to do a little as possible.. personally I think if you are a talented enough photographer, you shouldn't need to do too much re-touching! Nevertheless, here is an example of my latest work:
Fashion's Night Out is wonderful because not only are you exposed to a plethora of different design perspectives, freebees and products, but you are also exposed to a variety of people.
The first and most memorable artist I had the pleasure of meeting that night was Frank Caracciolo.
We made small talk and it was at that time that he shared some words of wisdom which go against what many photographers and artists have told me in the past. His exact words escape my memory but his message remains embedded in my head.
In the past, artists and photographers have told me that this is a dying industry and that I should bite the bullet, move on and find a more secure job... But Caracciolo's message not only contrasted the words of others but inspired me to keep creating works of art.
Rather then move on, he advised me to move forward.
Stick with it. Keep creating art.
Believe in yourself and your artistic abilities and good things will come.
But enough about me, lets get to Frank!
Caracciolo's work is unique because he turns his beautiful oil paintings into wearable women's clothes. His designs are colorful and most definitely wearable.

Last year, I had the pleasure of shooting Elene Cassis and Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B collection for Fall Fashion week!
This being said, when I was asked to document this years Fashion's Night Out, I was more then happy to do so!
I mean whats not to love?
Champagne, high-end fashion, not to mention streets flooded with flamboyantly colorful and animated people!

PEOPLE. PLACES. DECOR.
Personally, I found the people who took part in Fashion's Night Out to be the most interesting part of the whole extravaganza
I was blown away by the art instillations showcased in the windows...at one point people served as mannequins, see below!
As if that wasn't creative enough, check out what I found to be the most inspiring part of Fashion's Night Out, taken at Louis Vuitton:
Out of all the places I photographed for Fashion Night Out, YSL had the biggest commotion! Why? Nicki Minaj.
Fans went BANANAS! Not only for Nicki, but for who accompanied her.
Minaj's best and cutest accessory? This little girl!
Event produced by 106.1 WBLI, Long Island's #1 Hit Music Station, and production by The ECHO AGENCY of NY & VP Events. MC ECHO & DJ Giovanni.
The Morning Show crew, Dana & Jeffery, hosted an amazing event! Over 500 woman came out for a great time and FREE stuff. The Drag queens were a wonderful addition to the event, bringing the party to another level!
Since I grew up listening to 106.1 WBLI, I was absolutely delighted to shoot this event!
Great music, great people, great hosts & entertainment!
This event actually took place prior to spring break and ultra however, being that it was one of the greater accomplishments in my life, I felt it necessary to post!
I photographed behind the scenes of Elene Cassis show for L'zoreal Professional
and Gwen Stefani's fall collection of L.A.M.B
There I am! Front and center! And yes...she is really that stunning in real life. What a show!
