FORBES Japan Editorial Cover Story

I had the pleasure of working with Forbes Japan on their December 2016 cover story about Yancey Strickler at Kickstarter. We shot Yancey at Kickerstarter’s stunning headquarters in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Yancey was great to work and we were given a gorgeous day to shoot.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 
A TEST SHOT. LOVE HOW THE THEATER LIGHTS POINT DOWN.

BBOY BEHIND THE SCENES

In June, I traveled to Korea to see a good friend open his exhibition (Chong Gon Byun). While I was in Seoul, I connected with an amazing group of BBoy dancers called Last4One. Total bunch of characters with amazing skills. These guys are incredibly graceful yet very powerful. I loved finding out that Last4One performed for Hillary Clinton during a recent visit to Korea. Born out of NYC in the 70s with Black and Puerto Rican youths, B-boying is wildly popular in South Korea.
 
Here is a behind-the-scenes video that we shot on an iPhone

CLYDE FRAZIER // Swishin’ & Dishin’

Thrilled to share the images from my ESPN/LEVI’S shoot with Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier.  What a character and overall class act. I spent the day shooting stills of Clyde at his restaurant CLYDE’S WINE AND DINE on 10th Ave. Known for his old school flare, Clyde didn’t disappoint with his calf skin suits and pink cowboy boots and wild shirts.
Check out some of the images in the April ESPN magazine. ESPN CreativeWorks put together a great commercial spot, check it out below.
