Weekend Photo Hangout

As a visual artist, I think it’s important to keep shooting and continue refining your skills. I think it’s also important to surround yourself with people who can share what you love. I’m so glad I have opportunities to simply go explore the city with some of my fellow creative friends and just photograph for pleasure. The above are just a few moments from our weekend adventure…

Elena, Mary and Renny
I’m so glad I got to work with these lovely ladies yesterday. We were photographing all over Brooklyn for the editorial shoot and I must say, it was one of my favorites of the season. It was just an amazing day combined with perfect weather with some occasional breeze, beautiful locations, and a team of truly talented individuals. We were running on a tight schedule, hopping from location to location, but everything went much smoother than I expected, so no complaints here! I’m absolutely thrilled to share the set of images here soon!

Jessica
Today’s October 1st, and with chillier days and cloudy skies, it’s already looking like winter is not too far away. On a day like this, I can’t help but look back to the warmer seasons. This is a photograph of Jessica which I shot in April. I wish somehow we can skip winter and go straight to spring.

DreamLand NYC

About a week ago, a company called Dream Land launched its official website and presence to the world. Prior to the launch, I had the pleasure of getting to know the dream-driven team behind Dream Land and the amazing privilege to make their video introducing who they are and what they strive to do. I was inspired by the team’s determination and their goal to make others’ dreams a reality. I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity and I can’t wait to see what these guys will achieve in the future.

Earlier this month, my friend and I went on to explore an abandoned grain terminal located in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The place was deserted and once inside, we found some beautiful spaces and machines that dated back to the days when Red Hook was thriving with workers importing and refining grain and other supplies for locals. It was an exciting and somewhat dangerous adventure since we had to climb up 8 flights of rusty old iron stairs that had several steps missing - a small slip would’ve meant falling through several flights and crashing onto the cold concrete floor. Despite the risks, the climb was worth it when we reached the top and were able to discover the remains of the old factory and witness breathtaking views of Brooklyn and New York City.

Stand still. Take a moment to relish the beauty around you. The world can wait.

There’s something special about this season of the year…the sun sets sooner, the air is slightly cooler, and everyone is outside enjoying the last days of warmth as they feel the signs of the coming fall…I captured this photograph while scouting for a shoot in Central Park and I absolutely love the emotions I feel from it. As a person who prefers warmer days, I’ll be spending my last few weeks of summer outside as much as I can. Perhaps I’ll go for a swim in the waters, one last time…
