15 hours ago, it was snowing. Now, this. I’ll take it.

A few outtakes from my shoot with Wesley, who was great fun to photograph. He’s the co-founder of GNTLMN.com, a handmade men’s accessories & home goods company which I love, despite my not being a gentleman (I’m seriously loving this sadly sold-out tote).

I’ve been getting up earlier every day to combat the MTA’s increasing unreliability. On sunny days these beautiful light patterns are the first thing I see when I come out of my bedroom. 

In other news, I’ll be in Ireland & Scotland in early June & I am verrrrrry excited! I’m nearly done planning, just need to book my flight from Dublin to Edinburgh, which is proving to be tough. The airlines for that short trip only let you take one single bag on the plane. Not a carry on & a purse, just ONE. Anything more & you get charged a LOT. This is proving difficult because I automatically have two bags: one for my camera gear & one for everything else. So…we’ll see. If anyone has any suggestions on what I shouldn’t miss in Dublin & Edinburgh, please get in touch! 

Here’s some cool stuff I read on Tumblr in the past few weeks:

I am thrilled to introduce CAPTURE, an exciting new project I have been working onCapture is simple, beautiful business management for freelance photographers.

To cut to the chase… as a busy, working photographer, this is my dream tool. I need this to run my business more efficiently and to give me more time to do what I love. Also, it looks gorgeous. We are still hard at work, but I cannot begin to start using it myself and to share it with you. 

If you’re a photographer, please sign up for early access, we’d love to have you try it out first. Also, please share this with your freelance photographer friends.
