In the New York Times, and more...

It would be remiss of me if I didn't share with my readers and followers my recent developments.

Some of you may still not know that alongside Fashion and Commercial photgraphy, I'm also a Fine Art Photographer. In fact, it's as a result of my studying Painting at the Edna Manley College that I became involved in photography all together. Some people say that I'm multifaceted, I just call it being driven, well-rounded and bankable.

Recently, one the Caribbean's leading magazine, ARC Magazine, was kind enough to share a feature on me, written by Chevonese Fender. This feature truly delves into the core of my creative being, and discusses what stimulates my interests which eventually filters out into my Fashion and at times, commercial photography.

That being said, I've also had the previlige of working with the New York Times recently. I was solicited to shoot various scenes in Jamaica that represents our country's sublime beauty. In other words, the parts of Jamaica that we would usually overlook as the tourist attraction. This job took me and my assistat, F. Symister, to the beaches of Hellshire then to the north coast of Montego Bay to capture the Highland House.

Here are the results of that shoot, which can also be located on the NYTimes website.
