I met Jesse when I shot him for Nike at the Amar’e Stoudemire lookbook shoot. Really dug his look and worked out a little collaboration portrait project with him. Shot all film. Mostly the Hassleblad 503CW with Kodak Tmax400 and Portra400. Many thanks to Ali at A Noble Savage for the use of his amazing styled out loft. Check out Jesse’s Music here: http://jbiiimusic.com/
In a little holiday party, I met the awesome CD over at billboard.com and she commissioned me to shoot Mary J Blige a couple days later. Apparently I missed the homepage drop, but here’s a screenshot and a BTS video they shot, partially with me shooting her. Check out the article page here.
A fun way to wrap 2011 by shooting Amar’e Stoudemire for Nike Sports Wear. They threw a private party down at the 21 Mercer Nike store for the release of his Nike video. Nike is the one of the few, if the only brand that does really amazing things with technology. They aren’t afraid to try new things. Before the party, we set up a studio and shot a lookbook with him and 14 other influencers. It was a mad 1.5 hour timeframe that I had to share with the video lookbook crew. Needless to say, I had 3 minutes to shoot Amar’e. Here are a few others:
Post studio lookbook shoot(directly after) we moved into the private party where they partnered with Livestream to broadcast the event live to the web which included me shooting wirelessly to their server so they could be posting the pics I was shooting into the feed while the event was going on. Check the stream out here. Live pics below.
