After coming across a portrait I'd snapped in April of fashion designer Michael Cepress in his latest email update, figured it'd be good to begin posting things like this to the blog. So here's the first "In the news" post!
Michael's an up-and-coming designer who's doing lots of exciting work. Last June I had the privilege of photographing his "American Dreaming" collection at Century Ballroom. Funded by a successful $50K Kickstarter campaign, it was by far the coolest fashion show I've attended (hopefully I'll get some of the images up on this site at some point). Now, at the Inscape Arts building in Chinatown where I spend my days, I get to call Michael a neighbor, and he's actually pretty responsible for me being here: last fall he encouraged me to rent studio No. 314 on the third floor, which at the time was his showroom. Since leasing the space in September 2013 and furnishing it by November, it's been about the best development in my life of the past year.
