Group Shot....

Here's a shot of our crew from the NY Times Jeff Koons shoot. The story will be in the Easter edition of the NY Times Magazine. Everyone worked really hard. It was an amazing shoot.

New McGinley show......

I was just in SoHo and stopped into Team Gallery to see the new
Ryan McGinley show. He's been one of my favorite photogs for a while.
Naked hippie kids, as usual.
What impressed me most was the printing ! I've been looking at so many Epson
prints. There is def something to be said for the good ol' gelatin silver print.
Hmmmm...... Maybe I shouldn't have sold my darkroom all those years ago.

Road Kill...

NYC was hit by a big storm this weekend. There were lots of fatalities in my neighborhood...

Bones were scattered
This was just a child. Nature has no mercy.
Just terrible. I've never seen one of these.
Some almost made it
This happened right in front of me

Athletic Fashion

Athletic fashion is great. You can wear anything you want and add some striped tube socks.
This dude was out for his morning walk... Or was it the walk of shame?

Spring is on the way...

This class will kick your A**

I did a spinning class today at Soul Cycle in my hood. Not your everyday spinning class. This is spinning with bands attached to the ceiling so you get your upper body / core workout in at the same time. Yes, that's right - Pedaling while doing crunches, curls, lats, triceps.....

Diamond Dust Powder

Julia decided to open her diamond dust powder and apply it....

Visit from LIGHT LIGHT

An old friend came by today. "LIGHT" If you're familiar with my portraits you will recognize him from a few shots. He's now teaching meditation. Let me know if you're interested - I can put you in touch with him. He's an amazing person. I'm going to look for a shot of him I have from a few years ago and post soon.

Julia today...

Making her lunch.
Picking her up from School
We went swimming. Her lips were turning purple !

Awesome Shop in Tribeca

This shop is called "Bikini Bar" and it's on Duane Street. They have an awesome collection of surfboards, old school surf shots, and art deco furniture. It really reminds me of my dear friend Jerry's Hotel on South Beach - "Club Cabana." There's a Sheraton there now. RIP.

@ Work

We were supposed to be shooting video but ended up getting stills. Stacy Beneke doing makeup here while I'm doing the Cha Cha !?!?!?!?

Messy ?!

I wonder if this person was still finishing lunch as they were taking the trash out ? I'd love to see whoever it was just tossing the bones on the street. That chicken needs some CHOLULA.

Good Stuff

Expensive sandwiches that are made with old ingredients need......

Figuring it out.....

I have been thinking about what to write about today, and for the most part - what I should write about in this blog on a regular basis. How am I going to make it different than Facebook ?
So in the meantime. Here are some pics of Julia from today. Things will get figured out and streamlined soon! (And def more pics of Julia.)

She forgot her hat today so she had to wear mine !
She had to pose with the flowers at W Foods !

Here is the opening spread from this months SHAPE magazine. This is month 2 of the shoots I did in Hawaii this past Nov. I have another story in there with the lead actress from the show "Chuck" on NBC.

And Away we go......!!!!!

I went to the new GREY offices last Thursday for the "Office Warming Party"
You will see from the pics below. It was fun. These pics were done with a digital photo booth.
Once the pic is snapped it is projected onto the wall, then you get a 4x6 print. It's def great for any party. Or you can hire a photographer, but that's not nearly as fun.....

What a group !
The lovely Annalaina Marks. She was the model that went with me to Hawaii. There is another post with an awesome shot of her.She's still getting me back for making her work !!!!! Do models really work ???!!!!

Robyn and the pusher ?
My lovely Francie !


I will start adding to this blog as often as I can. It's going to take a while to get going but will be worth it.
