1) How long have you lived in New York? 

– I have lived in New York for two years from Pasadena, CA

2) What is your favourite makeup product and why? 

– My favorite makeup product to use on clients has to be a illuminating highlighter because it creates a beautiful glow and luminous finish which makes your skin appear to be younger.

3) When did you start doing make up?

– I’ve always been an artist and I picked up makeup while doing theater. I was late in signing up for a drama course and the only way to be a part of the production that semester was to take a costume and makeup course. I learned a lot from the class and learned that I was actually good at makeup. It’s always been another way of expressing my love for art and perfection.

4) Tell me about your favourite characteristic of a person’s face and why.

– I would have to say the eyes. I feel like a woman’s eyes can always be dressed up or down with very little effort. I like emphasis on the lashes for daytime and a darker crease for that sultry eye.

5) Name three characteristics (in no particular order) on your Love List? (characteristics or qualities you are looking for in a potential mate or your current mate).

– My wife definitely needs to be confident, loving and humble.

5 Minutes 5 Questions: Johnny Wolf

I had tons of fun with the wonderful Johnny Wolf, who was my NYC Flytographer. We walked along the High line and then we took it to the streets for more pictures and Artichoke pizza.  

This is 5 minutes/5 questions with photographer, Johnny Wolf:

1) How long have you lived in New York? 

All of my life! 

2) What is your favourite thing about being behind the camera?

It removes my self awareness.  I’m generally more of an introvert, but with a camera in my hands, I become much more outgoing and have no trouble directing people and being the center of attention.  The interactions I have and connections I make with people are wonderful!

3) Where is your favourite location in New York to take pictures?

Dumbo, Brooklyn.

4) What is your single best piece advice for aspiring photographers?

Take risks and push yourself outside of your comfort zone.  I’ve found that I learn a lot more from failures than I do from making a good picture.

5) What are the top three characteristics on your Love List (characteristics or qualities you are looking for in a potential mate or your current mate)?

Strong, independent, selfless.  And warm.  And goofy.  Wait, did you say three?

Flytographer shoot in NYC

Here is another Flytographer shoot I did in NYC for The Love List. This time the photographer was Johnny Wolf and I went for more of a rocker chic look. I went shopping at Zimmermann and found this great dress and coupled it with these Dior shoes, an All Saints leather jacket and pearls from Henri Bendels.

Pizza at Artichoke

The pizza chronicles. It’s always great to find a nice slice. This is at Artichoke.
