Olympus 790 SW 7.1 MP Digital Camera

one day Steve and I were at the beach, and there were some pretty big swells from so many storms we were having... we decided to play with our new Olympus digital camera that is supposed to be shock proof, water proof (up to about 10 ft.), freeze proof, and dust proof.. it's a cute little camera (we got it in green) and easy to carry around when you don't feel like lugging around the beast (what I call our Canon 1DS Mark 2).

anyways, here are some really cool pics we got that day with Steve playing in the water....

Wendy Klein Masks

I sooooo love Wendy Klein's mask designs that we decided to contact her to see if she would be interested in collaborating. She was up for it and sent us 3 of her beautifully hand crafted leather masks, and we began to play... it got so bad that whoever would come over we'd put into a mask... eventually they began to revolt and said no more so now we need fresh victims.. :)

thanks Wendy!

Jamaica Jamaica 2007

uhmmm, everyone had a great time in Jamaica... but uhmmm, I don't think they remember any of it...........

Outtakes from our photo assignment in Jamaica shooting for Sunset Jamaica Grande in Ocho Rios and Sunset at the Palms in Negril.

Marjanne Kalf Designs

We first met Marjanne about a year ago when we moved to our apt. in Normandy Isles in Miami.. she was one of the first neighbors we met in the complex, and definitely the coolest! She'd come over with her cute little critter of a kid and try to pawn him off on us so she could go lock herself up in her room and design more clothes. She's very laid back and very Dutch! ... we liked her right off...:) and became close friends...

We eventually worked together to get some new imagery for her line and got some great shots with models Hana and Linda. Two very professional and very cool girls.

here's a taste of what we got that day.... Marjanne, we know you miss us, but mostly our cooking!! ;)

Images that capture the general feel and mood of Russia... full of heart, soul, suffering, and unbounded warmth... the expressions in their eyes says it all.

Under the Painted Line

When Steve and I first met he was working on a project called "Under the Painted Line" which was a body painting series that showcased each model painted as how she perceived herself to be, and to show the challenges they went through in society being multi racial, dealing with stereotypes, etc.. I thought it was an incredible concept and the images were amazing and a bit on the dark side. One model was a contortionist from Russia who worked in Coney Island. A beautiful girl who looks like Cameron Diaz (without the paint on). We heard she now gets knives thrown at her by her knife-throwing boyfriend in Coney Island for their act..

Steve was showing this series in galleries in NYC along with a couple different travel series. It was right after his last gallery show at Built that we decided to leave NY and head on the road for a bit... we continued this bodypainting series while on the road and it eventually morphed into something different from it's beginnings... it became color and involved couples rather than just individual models. The entire series is quite striking.. most of the time when you think of bodypainting you think of mardi-gras-type models in the street showcasing their tits, but this was more than that... as you can see.......
