Beaded Jewelry: Naja Naja

Location: 3rd Ward

Chavon Staten is 8 months pregnant here and how beautiful she looks!!  I always had issues that pregnant women are veiwed as not-so-hot and gorgeous.  I can careless what other people think but I wanted to make a statement!!  I believe pregnant women are absoutely, stunningly beautiful and I wanted to convey the message.

I have asked David Morgan and Kayla Jo to collaborate on goddess image making and here’s what we got.  Beautiful, isn’t she?

Meet your new Neighbor…

January 1, 2010

Model: Kirsy Lovett

Wardrobe: Sharlene Garcia

Meet your (not-so-average) girl next door, Kirsy and Sharlne.  The duo came as a referral from Keith Pearson, the wardrobe stylist, and no wonder he recommended them!  They are super fun and easy to work with… the I have to change my idea of ‘Peeping Jane’ to ‘Meet your neighbor…’.

Kirsy with super clear green eyes was perfect to portray feline-sexy girl next door, especailly with a help from Sharlene in the wardrobe department…

Happy Holidays!!

November 24, 2009

Photos of Leah Matthew, founder of Leela Yoga right here in the Atlantic Lofts.  Now, I can roll out of my bed stright into a yoga studio and that’s a delight!! I had a pleasure of doing a photo shoot with her for her up-coming website.

Whoever thinks we lost all the yoga studios here in Bed-Stuy, look no further, Leela Yoga is right here on Atlantic Ave, between Nostrand and New York Ave.

Roots

November 21, 2009

Whoever tells me there is no difference between film and digital photography, they must be blind, or they don’t know how to look.

I have previously put (somewhat of) same photos of MOE on this blog but they were shot using my digital camera.  Do you see the difference?  That’s why I always go back taking photos using my semi-ancient camera, hey I am an artists and I should do what makes my art better.  In this case, shooting film = going back to my roots.

Guess who???

These photos were taken modeling after famous photographs.  Now, whoever can guess whose portrait photos I took inspiration from can win a free portrait photo session with me!!

fallen angels

Fallen angel Fallen in a sense that they are here among us, not that they are not deserve to be where they were.  We have to cherish them; they are here to show us how clear and possible we can be…  I think they are much closer to our infinately possible source than most of us, so called ‘grown people’.
