I flew back to NYC recently to shoot a bunch of content for Indique Hair for this years Fashion Week. They provide hair to numerous designers and hair stylists to enhance the runway look. I was in charge of capturing it all in action. This year we attended Harlem's Fashion Row, Michael Costello and Laquan Smith's Presentation. You can see Laquans Smith's recap and some photos below as we followed him from a day of prep and setting the final looks to back stage prep and showtime. Head over to INDIQUE'S Fluff Blog to see all of the videos.
As we wrap up the month of September I wanted to put up the full campaign from the #GenerationOnyx Shoot with WE ARE ONYX. These women and the team was amazing and it turned out amazing. We Got 18 beautiful women out to my loft to shoot over two days to recreate this classic Noxema Ad from the 1960s. And below is what we created.
I was very humbled to be able to create this image and have a chance for it to go viral with over 4k Likes overall. The most any of my images have ever done. After we got everyone to nail their pose we were also able to get some fun shots after to add to the campaign. You can see all of the, below. I would like to thank everyone involved from We Are Onyx, the glam squad and to every person and model who sat in front of my camera and created with me.

Got a chance to have a quick session with Rene Daniella of OwnByFemme.com. We've been trying to shoot for months but just recently both aligned up right before she headed right back out the country on another adventure. Check out our session and make sure to follow her over on instagram at @OwnByFemme
Dave Hill is a traditionalist who loves to shoot film and he shot a Jeep Wrangler campaign with just that. Even though most of equipment failed during the shoot (WTF?!?), it is very interesting to see how he brought it together to make great images. Love it
You can see the final images over on his site Dave Hill
These guys will make anything 1000 times better when they throw it in super slo mo
I've been wanting to upgrade my camera to something that can give me more video power because of the gigs i have been getting and the new Canon C300 MKII Cinema Camera looks really dope.....Too bad is $15k womp womp.
But here review by FilmRiot giving us a hands on experience
Kevin Hart is one of the funniest guys I have ever met. I got a chance to go out to Dominican Republic with him, Fabolous, Ney-Yo and a bunch of other people. It was literally all jokes the whole time. I have it all on video and its hilarious. Check out this video of him clowning around on set with David Beckham for an H&M shoot.
I'm always looking for a great camera strap for my Fuji x100s. Having around your next can get annoying if it doesnt sit right. I think i just found the solution. KILLSPENCER has released a new Deluxe camera strap for the people. It's going for $89 for a regular and $124 for the leather version. Here is more detail on what you will be getting...
- Our bridle leather and paracord hand-threaded camera strap is probably the most comfortable and easiest camera strap on the market. It’s minimal design and construction, using waxed linen thread, makes it virtually tangle free, and unbreakable.
- ADD A CUSTOM MONOGRAM : Your initials (up to 10 characters) will be laser cut on the side of the leather by the split rings. See photo for example. *All sales are final when monogram is applied.
- DELUXE VERSION : Is leather wrapped and hand-threaded, making it the most comfortable and easiest camera strap on the market.
So Fujifilm has become one of my favorite cameras to shoot with and their Instax line has been on my bucketlist of items to buy for a while now. I think its finally time. They just announced the Instax Mini 70 the updated version on the mini 90. It's set to release on October 23rd for $140 and is available in Moon White, Island Blue and Canary Yellow. It features its classic card sized printsout, a selfie mode and a new auto exposure control feature. I'm definitely going to get one when it comes out.
