I woke up with a feeling of clarity. You know those moments when everything seems to make sense? Ya, one of those moments. Those moments are good. And I think it’s very important to pay attention when those moments come around and to act, if at all possible. I think that clarity is real and it’s a gift and when you don’t act, you know what happens, all of a sudden it’s gone and you’re left feeling a little bit […]
‘Who Am I?’. A question I ask myself a lot. I realise I am still – still – trying to figure that out. Yesterday I attended a funeral for my cousins’ mother. A life gone, a ceremony of remembrance. Tears and sadness and laughter too. It makes you think. They read her eulogy, describing who she was, what she’d done in life and re-counted anecdotes of her life. An attempt at giving those in attendance that only knew her in […]
He is kinetic. Constantly moving and I suppose thinking. A street photographer and does social documentary. I’d never heard of him and I like him. Shoot less. Don’t waste a shot. Don’t take the shot cause it ‘might’ come out. It won’t. Get close. Get CLOSE. Yes, getting close is intimidating. Part of the reason why I don’t think I could do ‘real’ street photography, although I love street photographers and their work. You gotta get close. You have to […]

I do though recall setting the camera atop a bunch of magazines (likely Sassy) on top of a chair. I should’ve moved the camera a little further forward. But hey, this was film and you couldn’t ‘check’ the picture and I was a novice.
This was that time that I went to an abandoned mill with a bunch of Models & Photographers for a group shoot. It was actually organized by one of the models, pictured below. I had a great time, although feeling just a little weary sneaking into the mill. The day was organized such that we had 6 Photographers and 6 models and we were to shoot with each model for a set amount of time and then switch. I had […]
Bill Cunningham is an 85 year young photographer living and working in New York city. I wanna be Bill. He started shooting street fashion in the 70’s and has been shooting ever since. What stands out to me most is that he has never stopped. He’s 85 and still going. And the reason he’s never stopped is that he is living his passion every single day. He loves to document style and he literally lives and breathes it. As he […]
