I LOVE NY (sometimes) feat. NARGIS @ Muse NYC

As much as I love my hometown of Memphis, TN, I understand that to achieve a curtain level of success in the fashion industry i'd haveta leave. So on October 30, 2006, I left the comforts of home and moved to New York City to live my dreams of becoming a fashion photographer.

I decided to do a post celebrating my accomplishments living in NYC by featuring my work with model Nargis who is currently represented by Muse NYC. I custom made her dress from a I LOVE NYC t-shirt I bought at a tourist shop on Fifth Ave. Being in NY has really challenged my creativity and tested my drive. Instead of breaking me down, its pushed me to prove to myself how strong I really am.

Every morning I wake up and thank God for making it possible for me to still be here and allow me another chance to share my artistic blessings with the world.
