New York Fashion Week 2017

 

As I am writing this blog I’m about 30,000 feet in the air on my way to New York Fashion Week. I wasn’t sure if I was going to even make it there. I got my funding from the family who didn’t want me to miss this opportunity. Thanks, Gerry and Richard! So now I’m on the move. But this storm looks like I might be delayed for awhile but I’m praying that I can get some shots on the first day. I’m going to miss some of the designers but hopefully, I will get the rest tonight. By the way, did I tell you guys that I don’t like to fly? I am sitting here thinking to myself why I don’t like to fly and it just occurred that the reason is I’m not in control. I can’t see what’s going on, nor guide the plane, or listen to what they are talking about. Yes, what a pilot speaks about lets me know how serious he or she takes their job. But my biggest worry is the maintenance of the aircraft. I was in the Air Force and worked on helicopters and I know a good mechanic when I meet one. He takes pride in his work knows people lives are counting on him or her. So I think before each takes off the person working the planes should be there to greet the passengers. Ok, I know that’s asking a lot still it’s just a thought. Well I finally landed and rushed to Madison Square Garden Theatre were the fashion show was held. It was a great experience and the designers were amazing. So here are some of the photos of fashion week New York. By the way, it was so cold!!! No more winter trips to New York.LOL!!! Thanks, Style Fashion Week!!!

New York fashion week 

Hey everybody, I know it’s been some time since I’ve hit my blog but I’m back. So the question is have you ever had something happen to you and you don’t know how to put it into words? I mean this is one of those moments in my life that I’m pretty happy about. I remember when I played football and was selected to be on the starting defense. It was a great feeling and a huge accomplishment for a 4th grader. And I also can recall when I was in love for the first time and found out that she felt the same way I did. And when she gave me her number and a kiss I was on cloud nine because she was the prettiest girl in 8th grade. There was the time when my son Philip was born and I held him for the first time, he was so small yet he instantly became the biggest part of my life. Then Caleb was born and he was my little thinker, I mean even as a baby you could see he was trying to figure things out. Not like most kids who tried to open a bottle or something but he was looking at the stars, plants, the fur on animals, I mean things that a six-year-old shouldn’t be thinking about. But by far my best moment was when my mother was fighting cancer and after her dialysis, she was so weak that she couldn’t get out of the car. So I open the car door and took the seatbelt off and carried my mom into the house. And on the way to the house, she said “thank you son”, and put her head on my chest. That was my proudest moment in my life. To be there for the woman who for years took care of me and the feeling of dependability. Showing love not just with words but with my actions. I now have another moment to share.

I just got my registration email for New York Fashion Week 2017. As a freelance photographer, this is huge! Because I don’t have a big name magazine sponsoring me like Elle, Vogue, New York times, GQ, and many others. This is just because I’m a good photographer. OK, I think I am, is that so wrong. I’ve got over the first hurdle and now I have to come up with the funds to get there. Being in San Diego I am literally on the other side of the country. But I have the will and determination to make this happen. So my Blog friends keep me in your prayers and hopefully, the next blog you read will have my New York Fashion Week 2017 photos attached to it. Thanks.

There are times in life when you are glad to be you where the mere thought of you brings a slight smile on your face. Not vanity by any means but just an understanding that it’s good to be me. When you may be happy just to be healthy or to be married or single . You woke up and said to yourself “self, you are alive and you are doing good today”. And as long as you don’t answer your own questions, you are right. Well as I’m sitting here at the Pacific Design Center waiting for LA Fashion week to start I’m glad to be me. This was my first time shooting FWLA and I was pretty excited about it. When I got my confirmation email I called my best friend and was like “we are going to Fashion Week!!!” Ok, I know for some of you it’s a bunch of people who like clothing that get together and say let’s wear purple this year. And then you see purple in every designer’s clothing line. Well, that is true, but for a solo photographer, this was huge. We drove up from San Diego and it’s been great, the first thing we did was get a hot pastrami sandwich from Tams Hamburgers and Pastrami in Long Beach. Ok, that has nothing to do with fashion week but I got the sandwich anyway. Now back to LAFW. The location was awesome and the designers brought out their best tonight. And if you’ve ever been to a fashion show whether it’s big or small, you get all kinds. LOL! So here is my photographic experience of Style Fashion Week.

Fashion Week San Diego 2016

Better Late Than Never

Yes, I know this post is really late but it’s here now. Fashion Week San Diego held it’s annual spring fashion show at Harrah’s Casino in Valley Center and as usual we had a great time. Fashion Week San Diego wrapped up several months ago, but great style never really leaves San Diego. So many independent fashion designers, amid the design centers, and school of fashion are here in this great city. On an average day, the fashions on its residents are enviably cool in a kicked-back southern California way. But when the fashion week descends on this city, it makes for serious street-style spotting.
