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.
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.
