I flew back to NYC recently to shoot a bunch of content for Indique Hair for this years Fashion Week. They provide hair to numerous designers and hair stylists to enhance the runway look. I was in charge of capturing it all in action. This year we attended Harlem's Fashion Row, Michael Costello and Laquan Smith's Presentation. You can see Laquans Smith's recap and some photos below as we followed him from a day of prep and setting the final looks to back stage prep and showtime. Head over to INDIQUE'S Fluff Blog to see all of the videos.
As we wrap up the month of September I wanted to put up the full campaign from the #GenerationOnyx Shoot with WE ARE ONYX. These women and the team was amazing and it turned out amazing. We Got 18 beautiful women out to my loft to shoot over two days to recreate this classic Noxema Ad from the 1960s. And below is what we created.
I was very humbled to be able to create this image and have a chance for it to go viral with over 4k Likes overall. The most any of my images have ever done. After we got everyone to nail their pose we were also able to get some fun shots after to add to the campaign. You can see all of the, below. I would like to thank everyone involved from We Are Onyx, the glam squad and to every person and model who sat in front of my camera and created with me.

Check out our session and make sure to follow her over on instagram at @OwnByFemme
For my birthday this year, me and some friends went out to Paris for a week long vacation. It was the first time i've been there without working and I was happy to actually have time to be a tourist and explore the city. Here are some photos from my time there.
Last night was the Nomadness Travel Tribe 3 Year Anniversary Party and it was held at Free Candy in Brooklyn. A room full of black travelers who as spanned the globe came together for drinks, awards and a good ass time. Shout out to the homey Evita on her success! #Nomadness

Flex Magazine contacted me to do a shoot with TNA Impact Wrestler, Gail Kim a couple of months ago and the spread came out great. This is my largest magazine spread and I am terribly excited to share it with you all. Enjoy.
The issue is set to be on newsstands September 15th. Be sure to pick one up for me. :)
What’s your AMMO?
My AMMO is my recent meeting with Taimak from The Last Dragon. I met Taimak in Central Park, we took a pic and then dance-battled for a minute. I looked up to him so much when I was younger – a brown young brotha growing in his skills, leading to him manifesting a supernatural power. That was who I knew I would be…haha!

See you soon
