(A small Casio sharp shooter snuck in during the Ladies First Tour where it was Missy Eliot as the main headliner. The only shot that I got before security threatened to take my camera.)
In honor of my GIRL, Beyonce, my Throwback Thursday is someone who my Mother admired too. And, above all, Beyonce is one of the few entertainers who has maintained poise, charisma and CLASS from day one. Packed with talent and confidence, Beyonce is about to set the record straight. I look forward to supporting a young positive Black role model as she performs at the Super Bowl this weekend. So, catch it haters. She is the real deal.
Happy Birthday to the woman who remains my rock. Fearlessly honest and nurturing, my Mother would have been 67 years old today. Go to the doctor and never miss your check ups. Cancer is a very real thing. I celebrate her life today as I do every day. But, today is extra special to me. Happy Birthday Ms. Inez.
Making him a supermodel might have been a task. But, Mr. Skinner has turned himself into quite the songwriter/music producer. Photographed back in the Fall of 2008. Casey is this week’s Throwback Thursday.
Starting off the year with a Glamoholic bang, I present to you a short but lusty story of a young man who is awaiting his lover’s return. For my story of slumber, I had the pleasure of shooting Steve Van Ravesteijn (Touche Models) portrait style as my protagonist who yearns for a lover’s touch. The styling has more of a commercial feel to it. I think that this helps in making Steve’ character more accessible maybe. With a mix of high end and consumer level pieces, this minimalist approach to fashion works. Many thanks to Ekaterina Razgonova for her styling expertise.
Shot on location in Amsterdam, this marked my first editorial abroad (save for the portrait series that I shot in Paris AFTER this one).

And, as always, please support print magazines. I love them all. But, I am an old timer. Happy Wednesday.
