New York Comic Con 2015 The second largest comic con in the world, NYCC ended last week. Many people in the tri-state area as well as all over the worked geeked out and dressed up as their favorite comic book or pop culture character during the con. This is often referred to as cosplay and many people definitely came in their best cosplay. It was such a great time attending and seeing all the great cosplay throughout the con. I just love covering this event because of the whole positive atmosphere from everyone that attended. Taking photos of all the various creative cosplays out there helps fuel my creative giving me ideas and insights on future shoots.

Here are some pics form NYCC 2015

New York Fashion Week SS16 This year's New York Fashion Week was very different from last season. Last season many of the main shows were at Lincoln center and the event was sponsored by Mercedes Benz. This year,IMG the company that organized the main fashion week events lost Mercedes Benz as a sponsor and also lost access to use Lincoln Center. Instead they held their events at various locations such as Skylight Clarkson Square, Skylight Moynihan Station, Pier 59 Milk Studios and other venues. There were also other organizations that held other runway shows to rival IMG. One particular organization was StyleFW that held their events at Gotham Hall. Overall, there were many shows to attend but this season I decided to not try to go to every show and shoot runway with my heavy gear. This season. I opted to go to some shows, shoot with a the new Sony Mirrorless cameras and enjoy the experience. I was still able to cover the shows I attended but was less stressed out and enjoyed my overall experience.

Here are some shots of the shows I covered


I even got to meet Christina Milan from the the Jay Godfrey presentation

Miami Swim Week 2016 This past July I went back to Miami for Miami Swimweek 2016. It was very different this time around since Mercedez Benz and IMG split earlier this year. This resulted in different shows from IMG and another organizer Funkshion. There were quite a few shows that were on at the same time so you had to pick an choose which one you wanted to go to. Although I didn't get to go to the same shows last year I was still able to attend good show during Swimweek.  Here are some pics from the shows I attended. The designers from the shows below are Tori Praver, F*ck Swim, Frankie's Bikini's, Mia Marcelle, Amato and Sinesia Karol.



While I was in Miami I was also did a few private shoots with two beautiful women.

Irina Shabayeva Bridal Lookbook Shoot 6/7/2015 Recently. I worked on a bridal lookbook shoot for designer Irina Shabayeva the season 6 winner of Project Runway.  Irina's designs are beautiful. She is a very talented designer and was happy to have the opportunity to work on a shoot featuring her line. Setting up the shoot itself was a lot of work, more work than I realize but in the end it all worked out. I recruited a great team of models, makeup, hair, video and photographers who all volunteered their time to make this an awesome shoot for me and Irina.


Here is the timelapse video of the entire bridal shoot for the Irina Shabayeva lookbook shoot.

Xan and Tyler Wedding It is wedding season in the east cost. Many wonderful weddings will occur around this time and I hope to cover as many of them as I can. Each wedding is a special moment between two people and I love immortalizing those moments as best I can. I recently shot a wedding for this beautiful couple Xan and Tyler Baechtle at the Mount Lebanon Christian Church neat Pittsburgh PA.  It was a long drive to get there from NYC, over 7 hours but well worth the trip.

I created this video to capture the overall wedding day. Be sure to check it out.  It is one of the options I started adding to my wedding coverage.


Here are some photos from the wedding

WPPI Wedding Shoots Every year there is a convention in Las Vegas for all the Wedding and Portrait photographers in the world. It is called WPPI. This is my second time attending. Last year I stumbled into it attending a workshop by well known wedding photographer Scott Robert Lim. Prior to attending last year's WPPI, I only concentrated on Fashion and Editorial shoots. I never gave weddings much thought. However because of all the seminars and people I meet last year who inspired me, I started looking more into shooting weddings and other genres. This year was even better. Not only did I go to more seminars and meet new people, I also got to shoot weddings all around Las Vegas. I shot two weddings in the Vegas Ranch and one at the Nelson Ghost Town.

Here are some photos from the shoot.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Fall 2015 Last year is the last time for Fashion week at Lincoln Center. In fact it is the last time there will be a Mercedes Benz fashion week in NYC as not only did IMG loss access to have the event at Lincoln Center but they also lost Mercedes Benz as a sponsor. Next season it will just merge with the rest of New York Fashion week. I was fortunate to cover Mercedes Benz Fashion week for the last time in NYC this past fallworking with Jesenia's Goodie Bag.  I primarily stayed at Lincoln Center covering various designers for 8 straight days. I finally got to attend the Desigual show where they had Supermodels  Bihati Prinsloo and Winnie Harlow walk as well as see Gigi Hadid and Yumi Lambert walk for Anna Sui. I was also able to see Tyson walk for David Tlale and Karlie Kloss for Carolina Hererra. It was not easy often running around from one location to the next and having to squeeze in between other photographers but in the end I am glad I went and go to cover the show.

New York Comic Con 2014 Once of the events I really enjoy attending ever year is NYCC at the Javitz Center in NYC.  It is the second largest Comic Con in the US next to the International Comic Con in San Diego.  Just as it is with the International Comic Con you have to purchase tickets way beforehand. I was fortunate again to attend this year. I grew up reading comics as a kid but did not really go to Comic Con or had and interest until I started photography. I remember my first time going I was so impressed with all the kool costumes people wore which is referred to as cosplay. There were so many creative cosplays at the con and the whole convention was so  had such a positive vibe. I am so lucky that as a photographer I am able to take photos and cover the event for all to see. Here are some pics from last year's Comic Con 2014.
