Noguchi at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Saturday I spent the afternoon strolling though the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to view the Isamu Noguchi exhibit which is on view through December 13.

I live near the Garden and visit a few times a year, usually in the spring for cherry blossoms or summer when the flora is in full bloom.  I was surprised to see how beautiful the landscape is during the late fall.  There were still roses and other flowers blooming, gourds hanging from trellises, fall foliage, etc.  It made a perfect backdrop for Noguchi’s work!

Upon entering we picked up a secondary map showing where the various sculptures were displayed.  The map was not exactly precise so it made finding some of the work a fun game.  I felt like I was embarking on a treasure hunt where each station provided a new visual reward!  The work, the setting, on an overcast, grey day was very inspiring!

The Garden was quite crowded due to a children’s Halloween festival.  It was sweet to see all the young kids running around in costume.  My reward was a pint of Six Point Oktoberfest which definitely hit the spot!

Love My Menswear Clients!

Most of my clients are women’s wear.  Although their garments are beautiful, they won’t work for me.

I was thrilled to receive a package from my client Member’s Only on Monday containing a killer distressed faux-leather bomber jacket!   A few months ago I shot a campaign on the mean streets of Brooklyn with model Tyler James from Q.  The photos came out great great, but I thought I could improve on Tyler’s posing skills.  I grabbed my MO jacket, my dog, and a Tecate from the fridge, my camera and my son in order to recreate a photo from the campaign (my son snapped the photo).

I think I better stick to photography and let Tyler do the modeling!  I don’t think I have to specify who is the photographer and who is the model!  Hoshi (the vizsla) is a keeper!

Beauty Editorial

Here are some behind the scenes photos from a beauty editorial I shot Sunday for Fashion Reverie Magazine.

The theme was a nail slumber party.  The editor was looking to shoot in a hotel room.  Thinking that the location would not look authentic enough, I offered my guest bedroom.  Shooting in my house is always a mixed bag… I like not having to travel to a location but having your home turned upside down for a day can be a drag.  Thankfully the shoot was low impact, the team was great, and we are all very excited about the images we created.  Love to Tiri (Q Models), Violetta (Q Models) and Madison Massey (Major Model Management) as well as T.Cooper – hair and makeup, and  Angi Wingle  of CND (nails).

Here are some behind the scenes photos.  Can’t wait to share the images we created!

Ai Weiwei at the Brooklyn Museum

Last night the Brooklyn Museum hosted a members reception for the opening of Ai Weiwei: According to What which will be open though August 10.

Ran into neighbors and close friends Maruchi Santana and John Parham.  Check out their branding firm Parham Santana.  Super creative people.  Maruchi has an amazing aesthetic and sense of color, John is always ready to share his latests cocktail recipe.

I digress, if you are in traveling distance to the great state of Brooklyn, go see this show!!!

Roberta Smith’s review in the NY Times.

(The images below do the art absolutely no justice.  I am hesitant to include them.)
