A special thanks to Victoria Stevens and the editorial staff at City Magazine for including me in their "Picture Me, Need to Know Photographers" story this month. It was an honor to be next to other young photographers including David Black, Elizabeth Weinberg, Ryan Pfluger, Phill Knott and Kareem Black
Our friends at Hurley and Contrast Magazine have asked me to be a part of their second annual "Anti Canvas" art show where one piece of my work is donated to Hurley to be made into ONE pair of boardshorts that will be auctioned off for charity on December 3rd. There will only be one pair made so, this is where I need everyone's help. I have selected 4 photos and from those, we need to choose one to send by November 15th. Of these four photos which one would you like to see as "the anti-canvas?" Leave your comment with the name listed below the photo and the photo with the most votes on November 14th gets made into a pair of board shorts! UPDATE: we are adding one more in... #5, Lilly.
Friends Robert James and Michelle Lindsay of "By Robert James" threw a party for 500 of their closest friends asking 6 of their favorite bands to perform for CMJ. What a fun idea! After shooting their Fall/Holiday collection around the streets of Manhattan the bands took stage one by one as we enjoyed company of good friends and great music. It was a pleasure to be there. To see more about the event, my friend Kofi at Paper Magazine posted a few snaps on the blog today... check it out here!
Geneviève vas habiter chez moi ce mois... sous le prétexte que je l'appris le français et qu'on fais des petits séances photos une fois par semaine dans l'appart. Elle est à Portland cette semaine mais on a fait cette petite photo hier... après son job chez Glamour. C'est que la premiere semaine!
I was recently given the unique opportunity of photographing and being photographed by photographer David Black for City Magazine. David and I spent the afternoon walking around the LES and train hopping. To our advantage it was a beautiful late summer day so we opted for a stroll across the Williamsburg Bridge then turned back so we could jump on the M train to to catch the afternoon sun from above the city.

This was a lovely way to say farewell to the land of Aloha for a bit... lets hope I brought some of that sunshine with me to last through the winter in NY.
The perfect white tee. Simple, soft, just a little detail, impossibly perfect and impossible to find. Until now. Meet Matt Bruening and the "Momo" white tee, one of my favorites of his easy to wear, hard not to look like a million bucks Pre-Fall collection. Get your hands on one, or ask Matt to create you your very own by checking him out here.
