Chelsea | 22.56 pm The 2013 Tribeca Heineken Wrap Invitational. I have been covering the Tribeca Film Festival for the past five years for Starpulse.com, and what can I say, except that it keeps getting bigger and better. Since starting Lord Ashbury last year, I’ve been granted an unprecedented amount of access at the festival that I never had before. Case in point, the annual Heineken invitational is consistently Tribeca’s best party this side of Vanity Fair. In the past, I’ve been able to attend as a guest of a filmmaker, but this year I was officially invited. Big thanks to Tammie Rosen, VP of Communications over at Tribeca Enterprises. Enjoy.
Tribeca | 17.35 pm I’ve spent the past few weeks covering the Tribeca Film Festival, so my daily shooting has been relegated to commissioned work. I still make time, however, to get together with subjects who really stood out on my initial meetings with them. Kerrin is a great example. Actually, when I first photographed her, we didn’t speak. It was during New York Fashion Week; I just snapped her and moved on. About a month later I was swapping emails with Suitcase editor Serena Guen and she mentioned that she knew Kerrin. Two days later I recognised her waiting at a stop light in Greenwich Village (or rather, I recognised her shoes). Kerrin is the blogger for CATiD.net. She strives to create a place where the world of fashion is Cool and Thoughtful. She showed up with an Opening Ceremony jacket and and especially cool Rodarte hoodie. I would…Continue Reading
I love my Gourmet shoes. Let me say that again, I friggin’ LOVE Gourmet. The shoes are like a perfect mesh of street and sport, casual and class. On top of that, I find them to be infinitely more comfortable than other shoes in its class, like the one with the star, or the one with the swoosh. Their comfort is on par with the Adidas Samba, which is about as cushy as you can get outside of a running trainer. I’ve worn Gourmet with jeans, slacks . . . in London once I rocked a pair with a J. Crew Ludlow suit. My point is, they’re highly versatile. On their website, I’m always looking at the new releases and the sale section, where you can find some pretty good steals every now and then. They recently posted on their twitter account that they’re releasing a women’s line, and the…Continue Reading
5th Avenue, New York. Speaking of 5th Avenue . . . I haven’t posted a bunch of photos from 5th Avenue in a long time! I’m sitting here thinking back when I first started Lord Ashbury, running out of photos by the end of every week because I hadn’t perfected the art of approaching people just yet. I’d scramble Fridays and Saturdays, and if I didn’t have enough portraits for the next week, I’d spend part of the days on Sundays walking up and down 5th Avenue, taking shots like this, because it was easy . . . well, in the beginning. Then people started emailing me and saying how they loved this stuff, partly because none of the other fashion blogs had shots like these, but also because it was a perspective that made people feel like they’re on the street walking, too. So for a little while, the…Continue Reading
I’m not old, but I’m at the age where “gettin’ up there” starts to be a notion. So I’m about to start “gettin’ up there”, that’s how old I am. In my entire life or however long that’s supposed to be, there’s a laundry list of things that I’m wishing will happen (like winning the lottery even though I never play it), things that I wish could’ve happened (like being a professional athlete or certified rock star), things that I wish would’ve happened by now but remain wildly optimistic (a legit career in what I love to do), cautiously optimistic ($15K more than I currently make), pessimistic (6 figures), and stuff I never would’ve thought would happen if I lived my life 5 times over. In America. Chief atop that list? Running into someone (in America) with my name. But it happened! Sort of. This guy’s name is Simba. I…Continue Reading
