This has been one crazy road trip! The internet in New York was overpriced at the hotel and slower than slow, so I have not been posting anywhere near as much as I had originally wanted to on this trip. But now I’m in Boston and it seems to be working! So finally I can post some of the work I have been doing on this trip. I’ve had several great shoots so far and I may be able to squeeze in one more before heading to Indy for the workshop.
I love New York and quite honestly I would strongly consider moving there, at least part-time. I don’t think I could ever leave California permanently, it’s just part of me at this point. But New York has so many options and is so diverse! I shot different looks and could have stayed for at least another few weeks with booked shoots! It is definitely a place I will be returning to very soon! I shot in my hotel, on location in the city, in Central Park and in a cool little pad in Brooklyn. The only thing I’m missing is my “I heart New York” shirt.
Speaking of Brooklyn, I got to hang out with and photograph my model/actress friend Anya again. I met her several years ago and she shot my Polaroid project for me back then. This time we decided to shoot her in her home. It is a very cool little place in a really cool neighborhood in Brooklyn. Her little dogs and cats were running around and getting involved in the shots, and honestly stealing the spotlight in some too! I love shooting in homes, apartments and hotel rooms. There is something about it that just works for me. Maybe it is because it is something new to me? I don’t know, but I love this style of shooting!
If anything this trip has made me want to focus on certain types of work. I know I’m always revamping my business plan, but that is how you grow right? Lets just say that there are markets in New York for what I do and people here are not giving it away for free, and even better, people are willing to pay for quality work! Talk about a switch!
Hopefully I’ll get to post more from my trip soon, but for now, here is one of Anya, can’t wait to work with her again!
