Elise Ballegeer

Shot Elise Ballegeer’s look book today. She is a Berlin based RISD graduate. Her clothes were super cool. Took me back to the days of streamlined DKNY/Jill Stuart/Dries Van Noten in the early 90s.

Samantha West x Delta Spirit on Stereogum


How cool is it to wake up, go on Stereogum.com and see your images as the site's background? Pretty damn cool. Especially when the photos are of some of my favorite boys, Delta Spirit. You can download two songs off their new album and check out their music video. xx

Amelia Burns Wins This Print!


I held a contest to win a copy of the print, "Ava With Owl And Bears". I wanted to announce with winner, Amelia Burns, with the her beautiful self portrait seen above. The yellow brushes remind me of flames every time I see this image. I love how the organic shapes reflect and revisit the curves of her body. Visit www.ameliaburns.com to see more of her wonderful work. Thanks Amelia and congratulations! Another contest will be coming your way sometime soon! xx

Peek at Yestadt Millinery S/S '11 with Lyle Lodwick and Coco Young


Yesterday I had the pleasure of working with Molly again for her Spring/Summer 2011 Collection for Yestadt Millinery. We shot Coco Young and Lyle Lodwick who are both shining gems. Coco has such a classic face, she was awesome to shoot. It must have been 90+ degrees out, but Lyle and Coco were cool as cucumbers. Above of one of Molly's incredible turbans. Absolutely glamorous and chic. Visit Yestadt Millinery for more.

Domino The Girl



Yesterday I photographed Domino in the West Village. She is coming out with an EP soon and we shot press photos for her. In the middle of the shoot, my camera broke, but bless the lord, we got some gorgeous shots. Then again, it is impossible not to get gorgeous shots of her...
