These photo's are from the last shoot with Renee . There is something very animal -like and feline about them . I really love these . Renee has still got " it " . She's also a great photographer in her own right .
I was really looking forward to shooting with Liz Ashley today but she flaked . Canceling out is one thing , I mean shit happens , but doing it 5 minutes before an appointment is flakey . Right now she is on my "list " which is not a good place to be .

The fall here in New York has been so beautiful this year . I've been getting out and about a bit and the weather has been perfect . Right about now the leaves have been changing into beautiful shades of oranges , yellow , and red . Crazy . One day i'll have to incorporate all that into a painting . I tried to check out the mobile art show Chanel has put on in central park this weekend . The show is supposed to be for the public but it's a real hassle to get tickets because it's sold out . Oh yeah , the tickets are free yet they're sold out . THe show is public , yet impossible to see. Go figure . Here are some fall pictures and a few photo's of a beautiful model that wishes to remain anonymous for now . Enjoy.

I didn't shoot many models all summer , practically none . The biggest shoots I had all summer were shooting the mermaid parade out at Coney Island and going to Paris to visit my beautiful girlfriend . I shot lots of photo's over there . Oh yeah , in the beginning of the summer I went out west to the four corners area and shot tons of photo's in many of the beautiful locations out there . I've mostly been working away on my paintings all summer in solitude . I painted more than I have in a long time and that's saying a lot .During the summer months many models travel so there isn't much opportunity to shoot but once September hits , BAM! they all come out in full force . I shot Ariel again recently . This time in my studio . I really like working with her , she's always on time , upbeat , and such a cool person . She's easy to photograph , you just have to focus on her eyes . I also recently photographed Katy C , whom I had never worked with before . Katy is an amazing world wind from Manchester who I really got on with . We shot in the basement of this east village bar and the photo's look to me as if they were shot in the Vampire's lair or something . At least that's what I think. Enjoy !

I haven't written anything here for a while . I'm not really that motivated to keep up with this at the moment . Besides this blog I also keep a diary and sketchbooks which are kinda like diaries as well . It's a lot , maybe too much . Anyway I was feeling kind of down about shooting models for a while and then along comes Ariel . What a cool girl to work with . She is easily inspiring to be around and very upbeat . I really love the photo's that came from our shoot . They look great . Technically though I need to perfect my use of indoor lighting . It's the one area that I know I could do a lot better and need too . I feel pretty confident in other areas but lighting for me is a week point . I think that when I return from my trip i'll have to by a new lighting setup . a how-too book and start working . Till then enjoy Ariel........

The last shoot I had was with Raelyn Mouse . I have to say I thought it was pretty strange . She was polite and not only on time but actually early ! Now there's a first . What bugged me out was that she showed up to my place without shoes or socks . I'm not judgemental and I like to think I have an open mind but to be walking around the city sans footwear is not very practical . Our shoot went O.K. my flash broke so I had to work without it . I got some good shots . At the end of our shoot though I question myself as to wether or not I want to continue doing this .
I just came back from a great southwestern trip with my girl . I'm going to post the photo's soon .
