Profile on Twig Terrariums

New work out on bkstyled! We met with Katy Maslow and Michelle Inciarrano of Twig Terrariums. They've an amazing store on Gowanus' increasingly hip 3rd Ave (the uber-Brooklyn Whole Foods is a few blocks down).

OMG! Sooo cute!

It's not just succulents, airplants and moss. Michelle and Katy also create mini worlds within the terrariums.

Merry Marbling Workshop

One of my clients, bkstyled, held their first workshop a couple weeks ago - "Merry Marbling" - with fashion designer Ilana Kohn

Marbled!

Marbled!

Generally I prefer more controlled shooting to events, but instead saw the marbling event as a reportage opportunity. Sometimes it's good to go out of your comfort zone, no? It was held in Primrose Cafe in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. In the back room. At night. Dimly lit and small. And low ceilings. 

No problem. Bouncing a flash onto the ceiling and photographing at ISO 1600, I was able to bleed in a tiny bit of ambient and still retain sharpness.

Afterward were cocktails made with Brooklyn Brewery Chocolate Stout, Citrus Hella Bitter, a little U-Bet chocolate syrup and bubbly - surprisingly yummy! Plus Mast Chocolates to snack on and goodie bag.

At Home with bkstyled's Rima Campbell

When bkstyled's founder Rima Campbell asked me to photograph her Clinton Hill apartment, I said yes immediately. I'd never been there before but she's got great taste, so I knew it wouldn't be disappointing. Très Brooklyn!

Lunch with the bkstyled Ladies

A couple weeks ago I joined Rima and Rachel of bkstyled for their monthly meeting (full disclosure: I shoot for bkstyled) at Anella in Greenpoint. Generally, if I see a burger on the menu, I can't help but order it. This time I opted for a slightly lighter, but not too much, meal - prosciutto and spinach omelette. Can we say YUM?

Maybe I should've ordered something seemingly healthier...
