Monday Night in New York   Leave a comment

It’s been a crazy week. I’ve been all over New York trying to make connections and Thursday afternoon hopped on a bus to Boston to go to my cousin’s wedding. It is still insane that I got to meet Piper Kerman, see Simon Pegg in person, personally meet Kevin Smith and Malcom Gladwell, Dule Hill and a ton of cool people in the short time i’ve been here. I’ve taken so many pictures that for the first time in a long time, I have a backlog I haven’t been able to process or upload so i’m a week behind because going to my cousin’s wedding meant drinking copious amounts of liquor and getting on bad! So, these are some pictures from last week Monday, which got pretty insane. After seeing Simon Pegg’s new movie, “Hector and the search for happiness” I went to an art show by artist, Peace Simon, and then the entire group hit Stanton Social, had a raging time drinking (with me snapping photos) then the after after party we hit Le Souk NY, these are a few pictures from the night.

Next Stop: Le Souk NYC

I haven’t been to Le Souk since 2011 and it was CRUNK or TURNT UP back then and this time was no dissappointment! We hit the club at about 2:30 A.M and there was barely space to move!

Simon Pegg’s new movie “Hector & the search for Happiness”   Leave a comment

I’m tempted to write a review of this movie, simply because as a traveller there were situations in the film I could relate to. i’ll try and word a comprehensive review over the next few days (i am presently exhausted) but it was a pleasure to both watch the film and see Simon Pegg and director Peter Chelsom in person. With friendly and well managed interviewing by Peter Travers, I had the pleasure of getting direct information about insights into the film with the main players on hand. This is what I like about NYC, there is a lot of access to things and people pretty often, and it helps to keep me focused on bigger and brighter things. I took a few pictures. cheers.

Fashionable Fridays Part 2   Leave a comment

It has been an interesting experience trying to document street fashion while trying to stay balanced in the whirlwind energy of New York. I try to shoot every day if possible, despite being fatigued a lot with my other networking efforts. cheers

Piper Kerman talks with Emily Nussbaum at Bryant Park NYC   Leave a comment

Amazing day so far! I went to a riveting discussion between author of “Orange is The New Black” Piper Kerman and  TV critic for the New Yorker, Emily Nussbaum, who asked her about life in prison, her thoughts on reform and also her feelings on the massive success of the TV series. I was honoured to have Piper sign a copy of my book and I also returned the favour by signing a copy of my second novel “Naked As The Day” for her!

Jamaica Jerk Festival 2014   Leave a comment

I passed through the 2014 Jamaica Jerk Fest and hung out with headliners Maxi Priest and Beniton the Menace. I also got to hang with actor Paul Campbell of “Third World Cop” fame! Shot some pics and had a good time!

Birdimus Presents: Fashionable Fridays   Leave a comment

I’m quite interested in street fashion photography, and Manhattan is the perfect place to find great subjects. This “fashionable fridays” post is a collection of what i’ve been snapping over the last few days. What’s interesting to me is how patterns emerge as you shoot, and sometimes, priceless moments are captured when someone looks up and you catch them in perfect focus.
