The February issue of OUT magazine has hit stands everywhere this week. As well as being mentioned on the masthead I also have a couple photos in the issue. The one I'm most excited about is the photo of fame girl band TELEPATHE. They were super fun and like every brooklyn 20 somethings we knew a lot of the same people. It turns out that Busy herself works at the same restaurant as my roommate Mike. Brooklyn's a small world after all. I'm going to be up dating my site this weekend with all new work. Check it!

A few months ago I was asked by the band IUD (Lizzie Bougatsos from Gang Gang Dance and Sadie Laska from Growing and Extreme Violence) to shoot there album cover. They had the amazing concept of spoofing an album cover from the cult classic band SPARKS. The photos came out great, and the album is set to release this March. Here are some recent press reviews that it's gotten from a shit load of music sites. I do have to say my favorite thing about this project is the album is being released on vinyl with a coupon to get the music digitally. I can't wait to see my shit on a record. Here is pitchfork's review of the album and a link to a bunch more. Check it out. Also look out for the album in March, it's being released on Social Registry ( www.thesocialregistry.com).

This is my first post in the new year and I've got a lot of stuff coming up. I have a bunch projects hitting the stands in the next couple of weeks. Most recently is the first issue of OUT magazine that I've worked on since assuming my position there as the PHOTO ASSOCIATE. I shot a band (along with a few other still life items) for the FEB. issue, due out this week. I also had an assignment for LATINA MAGAZINE over the weekend, that should be coming out in March. I will be sure to keep the blog updated with images and tear sheets. However, the things that I can show you that I'm super into was a photo shoot I set up today with my friend MIN PARK. She is a former SVA student like myself. She was fine arts, a painter but always super cute and fashionable. In my ever growing quest to photograph girl I asked her if she would be around this sunday afternoon. We went over to my friend Patrick's studio and made these photos which I'm really feeling. I don't know which I'm going to go with, but I have to say the success of this photo shoot has changed my whole persective on natural light. I've been toying around with it for the last few months since being sent on a shoot with DAVID ARMSTRONG. I think these are the most sucessful and you can expect a lot more of this in the near future. Enjoy.
