10,000!

I know its a pretty small thing, 10,000 hits to my blog... Yet still its an accomplishment.... 128 posts since September 28th, 2005... I went into the blogosphere with the mission to talk about my life through the pictures I have shot and continue to take. I have brought out pieces of my life that previously I wouldn't have dreamed to share with the world. As I did, I found myself released from so much of the past that had kept me anchored from moving forward in life. To say the experience has been cathartic can sometimes not seem enough. Its hard to say all that has come from this experience... I have found an audience for my work and my thoughts, a publisher who took a chance on my talent, a whole troop of models who have allowed me into their lives and who are now a part of mine and finally someone special to share my life with. I'm not sure where this is going to go but I'm hoping to hear from allot more of you along the way! So please take sometime to post comments as you see fit! Let a brotha know what you think of his work and life experiences!

The Sunday Show!...

Arguably the best show in Toronto on a sunday night is at Crews and tangos at 7:30 Michelle Ross and Jackie Baker put on three hours of the best R&B hits from the 60's to today ever assembled. As you have seen in previous blog entries the sunday night show has become a regular event for my friends and myself. A few hours of laughs, a few drinks and singing along to our favorite songs seems to have a therapeutic effect on the approaching Monday morning... A good way to start the week off right!

Abdi's Art Show...

Yesterday was the opening of Abdi's art show at the Oakwood Village Library via the Spence Gallery, besides Abdi's awesome work, there were several other talented artists. The gathering was made even better by the dulcet tones of Adam Soloman of the African Guitar Summit!

Jeffrey at Last!

My work has almost exclusively come from word of mouth, I am far too shy to approach people as always seems to have shades of creepiness for me. But then you see someone who you know you just have to photograph! I first saw Jeffrey as he jumped on stage at a club! My first thought was wow theres someone who has allot of confidence and is really living his life. I am on some level attracted to those who push themselves from just an observer of life to being part of it! I decided in that moment I would also step out and ask him to model for me. As first thought, he raised his eyebrow and thanked me and walked away....and as I cringed I also gave my self credit for having the nerve to ask. Needless to say for the entire summer and fall I would always remind him I was still interested... It came as a surprise the other day when he called and wanted some pictures for a project! I'm pretty happy with the out come... I've been making some progress shoot indoors, lighting is definitely an art unto itself! Well enjoy! Jeffrey at last!!!
