from left to right: Javon Drake, Jinna Boo, Me ( I look like I just got out of jail), and Pierre Woods

Jinna Boo, One of the finalist for the Sunglass Hut blogger competition was on set documenting my photoshoot with top model and my good friend Pierre Woods @ New York Models. Pierre invited fashion editor of AMMO Magazine, Javon Drake to style the shoot.

Jenna compiled a teaser video of clips she took during the shoot, from the styling process to the actual shoot.

We shot in various spots in Pierre's apartment building. Pierre and Jenna are neighbors. I chose to use available light in the building because it was too cold and I didn't feel like dragging my strobes and shit from Brooklyn to New Jersey by myself. This also gave me an opportunity to try a lighting situation I hadn't done in a long time.

I loved the vibe and energy of the entire day. The shoot was full of fall menswear fashion, gorgeously colored wardrobe, goofing around, and of course, amazing sunglasses! Jinna was fun and very cute. I like working with stylist like Javon who can put looks together and make them seem effortless and expensive. Everything looked like something Pierre would really wear...except those pink shoes ( i loved them and if I was a typical South Memphis hoodlum, I would have them on right now, lol)

(i lovvvvved those shoes)
