I’m always looking for people, things, videos…anything, that inspires me. Inspiration creatively, visually, mentally, spiritually, just something that moves me. I’ve been fortunate to not only meet, but sometimes shoot many who move me in some way. Because of this, I’m starting a new interview series where we get a chance to speak with some of these people who have moved me in some way and see what they have going on.
For the 1st interview post, I spoke with female music duo, GossYp. I’ve had the pleasure of shooting these beautiful sisters, Adina and Amina, a few time this year. Not only are these Brooklyn born, Long Island-bred girls, chill, down to earth, and nice, they are Continue reading
On the second official day of summer I had the pleasure of shooting behind the scenes footage for Stephan B. Austin, of SFX Photography. He specializes in shooting fitness models, and on this hot day, over at Orienta Beach Club, in Mamaroneck, New York, we shot fitness model and competitor, Ashley Trifiletti. With the upbeat tunes that Ashley and her sister picked, we had a great early morning shoot and that sanguine vibe translated in the video.

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!
I’m going to be in an art show tomorrow, with work…ok, one piece, for sale!
If you are in the NYC area, venture across the river to Jersey City (its literally no more than 15 minutes on the PATH train) for Steam Cafe’s, Opening Art Show Reception for their celebration of Black History Month.
Steam Cafe is a new Artists Cafe/Coffee Shop in Jersey City; this is their 3rd art show.
Come out and support!
Oh and that’s not my piece above, mine is a little more risque, and not on the internet…if you come you will see why!

I haven’t exactly been happy with my work over the last few months, but being in school means I’m forced to show things whether I’m ready or not. So alas, I must show some work.
Come check out the 3rd Year BFA Photography Exhibit, tomorrow (Tuesday) at the Fashion Institute of Technology, 5pm, and see what my fellow juniors and I have been working on. (For those out of the loop for the last 2 1/2 years, I’m a junior at FIT, working on my 2nd Bachelor’s degree. )
