I recently did a Photo Shoot with Ibn Majid Clothing for their 2010 fall/winter back 2 school LookBook. We took different shots all over the University city area. Check out the fall 2010 photo shoot. http://shop.ibnmajidclothing.com
LUPE said it best, “HurtMeSoul”!! This was a free, private event myself, Gianni Lee of Babylon Cartel and Local Philadelphia Artist Iye Yinde put together. It was an eclectic mix of classy, cool, creative people seeking a great time with dope art, music, and more. So far, we have had great success with our events and I wanted to thank everyone for their continued support. Kings Really Rule Together!!!
I recently had the pleasure of participating in a photo shoot for my good friends at Abstract Thought. Their Fall 2010 collection is a mix of new illustrations inspired by old designs with a contemporary edge. Check out their website www.imabstract.com for more pics from the shoot.
While my journey as a new photographer continues, on October 10th, a friend of mine, Adweena Justice asked me to take pictures at a launch party for her line Urbanea.
A graduate from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, majoring in fashion design, Adweena has been dedicated to her line Urbanea since. Although Urbanea currently offers a variety of women’s clothing and acessories, Justice plans to expand to children’s and men’s ready-to-wear lines in the future. Urbanea’s mission is to build self-esteem through clothing and accessories because “Fashion is not a choice, it’s a lifestyle!!!”
Overall, the event was a success! Lots of people including her friends and family came to support on a very special day.
I’m usually known for producing socially conscious networking events and styling. But, I actually started out as an event planner; the creative support behind the promoters and a liaison to the consumers. Well on Saturday, October 9th, my friends and I went back to our roots and threw a party for just pure fun. Being in a city over-saturated with parties, we were still able to capture a crowd of young, talented, successful men and women. Check out the pics and see for yourself!
I attended Philadelphia Fashion Week this past week and had an amazing time. I had a press and VIP pass for the main fashion show event and attended with celebrity stylist Debra Ginyard. The event was high caliber complete with full runway show, free food, drinks and local business vendors. It was great for networking and I had a good time taking pictures of the show-goers and getting photographed myself.
I never wanted to be a photographer. I noticed myself being too controlling over how I wanted my events to look when different photgraphers would cover an event. I like to cover all aspects of my gatherings; laughter, people posing, candid shots, & just the environment that made that night special. Check out pictures in future posts from my events & other gatherings that I was able to capture.
