I never really know how my days pan out or how I balance it all. During the week, I work a full time job, 9-5, all the while, I’m rifling off texts and emails with people about what’s going on that night or details for an upcoming shoot. Oftentimes I wonder where the energy comes from (coffee, “I’m not happy till the spoon stands straight up” (True Romance reference). I can’t say why I like being out and capturing images and stories. There are times when I’ll literally walk from Harlem to the Lower Eastside just wandering and shooting pics, be it restless energy or just the feeling that there’s always something more out there to see and do in the city. I’d like to say it’s just the summer, but I’m equally as restless in the winter, just with more indoor events.
This summer came and went faster than I’d like to accept. Agenda Long Beach started my summer – and what normally is a 5 hour flight turned into a 13 hour ordeal. I wound up flying into Los Angeles at 1am, and we all know how impossible it is to get a cab at that time. Then back to NYC in time for Jury Duty, Agenda NYC, and the events that always follow Agenda. Anyhow, below are some pictures from the last few months, everything from musicians and skaters to a handball tournament in Coney Island… Along with previews from Burton and The Hundreds, Supra’s Stevie Williams “Esteban” release party, and many more. It’s nonstop. Have to admit, it was a blast, but now I need to sleep for a month!
