Visiting Charleston SC

I'll be in Charleston this Friday and Saturday. I got a full schedule but I plan to set aside some time to hit the street with my camera.


Charleston is a lot of fun on the blogging front. I can walk down King Street and get a month's worth of photos in about 30 minutes. I'm still working out my schedule but I'm hoping to meet up with a few people while in town also. We'll see if our schedules line up.

VITA Fashion Show: Lynchburg, VA











































Last weekend I attended the VITA fashion show in Lynchburg, VA.  For those that follow my blog, you know I'm making it a point to find and attend local fashion shows.

Unfortunately with the VITA show, promotion wasn't great and I found out about it 3 days before it happened so my expectations were a bit low.  Backstage chaos was a bit too visible to guests, an apparent limited organization was in the air, and the lighting was less than great (unless you were a painting on the wall, it was an art gallery after all).

Aside from their faults, the entertainment was great, the models were stunning, and the designs covered a great range of creativity. I'll give VITA a slight break since this was the first year at this venue.

Did I mention lighting? I can't tell you how important lighting is to a fashion show. A spot light at the entrance and at the end of the runway/turning point would be more than enough. It's called key lighting and a little goes a long way.

Check back this week for some photos from VITA's show.

One of my blogger friends from New Zealand did an interview with me the other day and posted it up on her blog. Got to check out her site: The Wardrobe Fetish.

Good Things To Come

So I have a lot happening in the upcoming months. I'm not in a rush to tell everyone what's going on so you'll just have to wait to find out.

To prepare for one of my new gigs, I had the privilege of doing some one on one training with Kyle Green who is a photojournalist with The Roanoke Times. You can check out his bio here and view his work here. Kyle is a really cool guy and I got a lot out of my afternoon. I think my photos will start to reflect what he showed me.

As luck would have it, I had lined up a few volunteer models to help me work on some techniques that I've had in mind, which happened to fall on the same day I met with Kyle. This week I'll be featuring a different model each day who came and helped me out. Although each pose and outfit was planned before hand, it's definitely a week's worth of posts, so check the blog daily.

You'll also notice I took head shots of each model. I took a portrait of a friend of mine last week at the mall in Christiansburg and I'm sort of obsessed with taking head shots now. Don't worry though, I won't start clogging up my posts with portraits of people even though they are really cool and fun to shoot.

Since the street fair was held indoors this year, it was hard to find people outside not huddled around grills or tables of food.

To Code: Classic Sneakers

April's To Code: A Guide to Being A Better Gentleman

Warm weather is on the horizon, and socks are again optional. Although I'm the first person to put on a pair of thong Sandals, a good pair of classic sneakers is a must in every man's (and woman's) closet. A pair of classic Vans in navy blue or white or all white  Lo-Top Chuck Taylor's are probably the Industry standards.

I would like to introduce SeaVees Pantone. I ordered my pair of gray Pantone's over Christmas, and after breaking them in I honestly can't stop wearing them.
























The Pantone's aren't the lightest shoe, but the quality in the build and over all comfort is hard to beat. They are more comfortable then any athletic shoe I've ever worn.
























SeaVees, a small company in California, is making a stand out product that you need to experience. Since buying my pair, SeaVees have launched a new line of the Pantone made of all canvas material which drops the price to under $100. You might think, YIKES!! More than $100 for a pair of sneakers? I see people blow out $150 or more on the much less fashionable Nike Air Jordan's, where SeaVees want to stick out with great detailing standing behind their product. I e-mailed them a few times with questions and they responded quickly with helpful, detailed answers. As you see in my photos, not only do they come with individual cloth shoe bags, but they have a very cool patch sewn into the sole with their name imprinted on it.
























If you're interested in trying on a pair of Pantones, which I highly recommend, you can go to The Need Suppy Co. in Carytown if you live in Richmond or you can go online at needsupply.com. If you don't find what you want there send me an e-mail and I'll put you in contact with Derek at SeaVees and he'll help you get the right shoe.
