MADISON BOOTH & EVAN SUPPLE | SOUTH STREET SEAPORT

“Ballet : a theatrical art form using dancing, music, and scenery to convey a story, theme, or atmosphere”

I have always appreciated and admired how beautiful and graceful a ballet dancer looked, the poise they project was something I have always wanted to capture on film, the ethereal allure and artistry of a dancer that commands attention was what I wanted to project this week when I photographed dancers Madison Booth and Evan Supple. Both hail from Toronto, Canada where they trained for some number of years at Elite Danceworx in the GTA, The location of the shoot was in the South street seaport area, coincidentally on Halloween, where the challenge was trying to find a good spot for photos whilst navigating the costumed crowds. Both dancers were a joy to photograph bringing their own personality and gravitas to the shoot, The emotion and artistry conveyed during the shoot was reflected in the collection of photographs I am super happy to share with you today!

Valentina Robayo | STREETSTYLE : BLEEKER ST.

This week I had the opportunity to photograph my good friend Valentina Robayo. Valentina has always had an effortless and great sense of style, ranging from eclectic to trendy but always one that was her own. The challenge this week was to capture images that complimented her outfit and personality and to deviate away from the cliched location spots for photographs.  Which is how we found ourselves on Bleeker Street. After having lunch at By. Chloe, which was in the area we decided to just walk around get a feel for the locale and see what worked best. New York City is known for being overrun with taxi’s, and because I love taking risks to get that good shot, it was difficult trying not to get run down by a plethora of vehicles, pedestrians and/or  yellow taxi’s. Several photographs later, we managed to get great photo’s that I’m excited to share with you all today. Check it out! Details on her outfit can be found below.

MODEL BEHAVIOUR

Every photographer loves the chance to film/ photograph a subject that inspires them to WANT to photograph them. As a photographer one of the best things about photographing an individual is the emotion and/or enthusiasm you get from the person being photographed, you start to relish that moment and are even more excited to take photo after photo. Because everyone knows that a photographer can be good, but their subject must be better. In a sense it’s a two way street, the dance of give and take, where the subject gives and the photographer takes. Now enough of my endless blathering, today’s blog post is one I am super excited to share!! I had the amazing opportunity to photograph Korean models, Jihye Park and Ji Young Kwak, after walking the Badgley Mischka show. I absolutely loved shooting them!! They brought so much energy, hitting pose after pose and were by far my favorite models during NYFW to photograph. The two friends have been spotted on multiple streetstyle blogs, and on the runway of multiple shows during that week. Without further ado, I am very excited to share with you all these photographs from that day!

NYFW | NEW YORK FASHION WEEK S/S 2016

New York Fashion Week kicked off Thursday September 10th, and as such there was a hub of excitement and inspiration as hundreds of people poured in from all over the globe to witness, take part in or photograph, the biannual phenomena that is fashion week. Of course fashion week is also a chance for people to showcase their personal style in the hopes of inspiring, awe, shock, confusion, and a plethora of other emotions. I had the chance to photograph such style with camera in hand and document this weeks many looks.
