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.
