Teedra Moses R U 4 Real

i am feeling this song and video at the moment.
Teedra Moses feat. Drumma. I actually attended to University of Memphis with Christopher Gholson aka Drumma, who has become one of the leading music producers today. He has worked with a host of hip hop acts that include Young Buck, Jeezy, T.I., Kanye West, Lil’ Wayne, Nelly, T-Pain, Gorilla Zoe, Drake, Gucci Mane, Ludacris, Plies, Young Joc, Rick Ross, E-40, Rocko, Paul Wall,Lil’ Jon,Travis Porter. .....and the amazing Teedra Moses.

When I was in college, my website use to be an online magazine and Drumma was one of the models whom I photographed for it. He also did 2 of the instrumental tracks that appeared on my website. It's really great to see hometown talented people work hard and become successful Grammy nominated forces to be reckoned with.  check out his blog -  and you can also download music from his official website -

this was his "compcard" i made for him that was featured on my website.... seems like a lifetime ago, lol!

BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL featuring ATAUI DENG @ Trump Mgmt.NY, Elite Paris/ Milan

I have had the pleasure of working with Ataui Deng @ Trump Mgmt NY and Elite Paris/ Milan. I think she is amazing and from the moment I first met her, she left an instant lasting impression on me.  She is definitely one of those women who has "it" factor. She is a balance mix of commercial and editorial. She has appeared in countless editorials for top fashion magazines as well as campaigns for commercial clients like Macy's (with Andre Douglas). I am especially happy and honored to know that our work together is featured on her compcard and contributed to her successful season in Paris. I love working with Ataui and look forward to more projects with her soon.

here she is featured on Fashion TV :)


Ataui is poping up everywhere....

she's even on the side of buses .....LOL!

The first time I met Brazilian Rael Costa I thought he was strikingly beautiful.  Yes, BEAUTIFUL - he was beyond being handsome. He was recently featured on as MOTW (model of the week).  I had lunch with supermodel Pierre Woods the day we were shooting and he stuck around to assist me with Rael. He was flying back to Brazil that evening and we had to make it quick.

He couldn't speak English well so he did a lot of smiling and nodding. :). He was the first person I shot that had a language barrier but it had no affect on his performance. He was amazing in front of the camera and seem effortless in his connection with the camera. Maybe its a Brazilian thing, but he just seem to have a seamless understanding about his body and his eye contact. Thanks Dorian @ Ford Direct NY for sending him to me as my first test with you..... he was magic.
