WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: GossYp and Aglit Italy

Gossyp Jai Nima Idowu JADO Images Fashion Style What Gets You Movin

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

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: BTS with SFX Photography & Ashley Trifiletti

18 Jul

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 found a few images in my archive of the last few months and decided to add them to my photography website Jado Images, which is desperately due for it’s 2012 facelift!

The images are of super chill rapper Noreaga, who I had to spend the day with for my job at Vlad TV this summer.  Then there is rapper and sometimes singer Lil Mama, who I caught a quick flick of at the Black Girls Rock concert.  And last but not least, and my favorite picture of the 3, is up and coming singer Raye 6 (you may remember pics of her from my event site Frozen Heartbeat), who did like a 3 minute mini photoshoot for me backstage of the Ghetto Metal  show at SOBs last month, I ended up loving this candid shot.

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. )

Since last year, the rapper, Live Wire and I have been talking about a photo shoot idea involving power lines and lightening.  I wasn’t sure how to go about executing it, but I had the idea in my head and just went for it.  Above is the result.

This shoot made me fall in love with the 1Ds Mark III!
