I recently updated my portrait gallery in my portfolio. Take a look if you have a minute.
Last week I worked with Jonathan H. from Modelogic. We shot on location in Baltimore at Mclain and Wiesand, a custom furniture designer/fabricator. A owe a huge thank you to them for allowing me to use their amazing space.
Last week while I was in San Francisco I met up with Bureau of Trade‘s founder and CEO, Michael Moskowitz, for a portrait shoot. I discovered Bureau of Trade a few months back and I love what the start up is doing.
Bureau of Trade is a shopping and discovery site for men, blending a curated vision of art and style into an e-commerce site where rarities from across the world are displayed and sold through the company at affordable prices. The BUREAU is dedicated in helping men shape and present a more complete and compelling portrait of themselves.
Michael’s world travels, work in foreign policy and his time at IDEO as a designer have all contributed to the vision of the company.

On Sunday I hit the studio with Jay Royale, an up and coming hip-hop artist in Baltimore. I’ve teamed up with him and the guys at On Que Records and have been working on a series of projects. In early December, we shot a video for a mixtape track, its currently being edited and will be released very soon. We met up for a quick portrait session before hitting the studio with Baltimore’s hiphop ambassador, Ogun (check his organization here). I can’t thing of a more inspring way to spend my Sunday than hitting the studio with Jay and Ogun, watching them make music that will move the city’s hiphop scene into a new direction.
