WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Jason Mickle Photography

Hey Guys!  Back in late Spring of 2012 I assisted fashion photographer, Jason Mickle, on a fashion story that recently appeared in West East Magazine. The story is loosely based around the crucifixion of Christ, and paintings depicting that story. For some reason it’s called Step Into Wonder (I’m not sure why) but the spread came out beautifully.  I always learn so much when I work with Jason!

Here are a couple of pictures from the shoot, to see all of them you can visit here.

WHAT’S GETS YOU MOVIN’: STYLE DIARY (week 7)

4 Jan

I took a little break on posting my Fall Style Diary, but I never stopped shooting! Over the next couple weeks, as the chill starts to set in, I’ll show you how I warmed things up, some of the time, this Fall.  Also I’m looking forward to expanding Style Diary, and What Gets You Movin’, in general.  2013 is going to be a good one!

This particular week in November there was no mood, it was rather random actually, but at least the weather was decent, hence me showing my gams!  I remember this week though, it was close to midterms, as always I barely slept, and on Tuesday I found out I was showing in a group show that Friday.  The show was the 3rd annual Night of Arts in Chelsea.

Monday i rocked Continue reading

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Jado Images

31 Dec


Wow 2012 is coming to an end!  I have to admit it wasn’t a particularly great year for me, so much change and not enough sleep.  There were a couple highlights though, one of them being, reaching my goal of getting a lot more photography work; this will transition into the launch of JADO Studios in 2013, but more of that come. 

I wanted to leave you all with an excerpt from a feature that the website template site Wix.com did on me.  They featured a couple of their users early this year, to discuss their work and how and why they use Wix. I’m not sure what ever happened with the featured user project, but here’s a sneak peek in what I had to say about JADO Images, marketing, and dating in January or February of 2012.

Happy New Year and look out for an updated JADO Images site in 2013!

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Fall Style Diary (week 6)

26 Nov

After a week working from home and a week off from school because of Sandy, I was ready to put some clothes on and start the week, well that’s what I thought.  I’m not sure in what ways the storm affected you, but for me it created a reflective, even somewhat somber tone on things that made me put some things into perspective.

It made not want to post anything to the blog because it just seemed trivial and silly, and I really didn’t care about dressing and style.  For this week I was predominately focused on my photography and video work, and finalizing the details of going to Art Basel in Miami.

Monday I got into take care of business mode, with my new Continue reading

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: style diary

18 Oct


In Week 2 for my Fall Style Diary, comfort was key!  I needed things that were quick and easy, plus I was just kind of lazy.  Many people confuse comfortable clothing with sloppy clothing, and that doesn’t have to be the case.  A dress is heck a lot easier for me to put on than a pair jeans, and I instantly look i put in some effort when i really didn’t!  Along with comfort, this week was about a statement piece, which was my new studded leather jacket.  I love it!  It dresses anything up.  The other key piece are my Jeffery Campbell Brit Wrap Strap Boots.  I’ve been eyeing strap boots for minute, and these did exactly what i wanted; they’re a great pair of moto boots to go with my moto jacket.
My favorites fits this week came in the latter portion of it, which were Thursday, Friday and Continue reading
