Some NYFW fun

I have decided to shoot a lot less this time around. I’m enjoying it more. Spending more time just effing around with my friends (see above). Have a great weekend.

I decided to drop additional snaps from NYFW Feb 2014 in one-per-day installments. Here is No.1 from the Timo Weiland presentation.

NYFW, so far (photo heavy)

Even though today is the official start of New York fashion week, offsite shows started in the beginning of the week. I actually like the offsite shows much better (not just because they tend to be in my neighborhood). The tents are pretty sterile and boring. Plus a lot of my least favorite photogs hangout there full time. Anyway, here are some of my snaps from Tuesday and Wed.

The image above is currently one of my favorites shots from this iteration of NYFW. It was back stage at a Native Son show. Normally all of the back stage stuff that you get is the same. It is generally a bunch of candid images of people getting hair and makeup done, PR people yelling at other PR people in their headsets, etc.. My favorite overheard back stage conversation so far was “OMG, Yuri got arrested! We need to do a model count right now!”

Anyway, the reason that I like the image above so much, is because this particular show was off site at Pier 59 in Chelsea. The windows from the hair/makeup area of back stage opened onto the roof. So a bunch of the more Rat Pack-like models ducked out to have a quick butt. Another shot of the smoke break, below-

Next, let’s talk about Betsey Johnson.

I really like the animation going on with these curls.

Finally, I was dying over this adorable little family sitting on the front row.

Moving along to J. Crew. It is amazing the way that their look can be so sterile, but still beautiful. Favorite two looks from the presentation–

I’m hoping to have more images from these sets up on my photo blog by this weekend.

Oh yeah, wait. One more. I really liked this one from Billy Reid.

I wish that it wouldn’t have been so dark in there. I had to have the ISO jammed all of the way at like 1200 or something. So, this image isn’t very sharp. But I still really like the moodiness.
