New video

I've been fuming with creativity recently...Video has always had a strong place in my life, I am glad to be getting back into it. I shot this while in the Catskills, a few weeks ago. Enjoy.

There are ppl in our life for a reason/reasons...It's not often we find soul mates. In fact, I don't even know if most find that soul mate in their life time.
To me, she was a soul mate. A soul mate to me is someone who opens you up, makes your see things, helps you see below the darkest surface, and brings out the best in you. Soul mates can and do come and go... They can be in your life for days, weeks, months, years, it's not the amount of time they are in your life that is important, it's the light that is seen and the connection that is made, both within yourself and others.

Some aren't strong enough to accept the amount of love that a person will pour into you. It's heart wrenching, but we are all different. And that needs to be accepted.

I've lived the last two years being on cloud nine in love, knowing that my partner didn't have the reciprocated heart that I do...BUT, I have been completely content with being in the moment and nothing more, nor any further. I only hope that everyone can do the same, bc we really don't know how long we will be around in each other's life. Love heavily and find what makes you smile. =)

Life is good.

Love to you all.

Nicholas Routzen Interview

A past intern, Ernie Gilbert, came and stayed with me for a bit to help out and gain some new knowledge. Ernie happened to be here on a few travel assignments as well, so he was to see how the whole operation works. While here, he did some filming and edited a small interview video for me. Thanks Ern!

New Video- Margarita Kallas

While in Paris, I shot this video of a great friend and model, Margarita Kallas. We were only days from receiving all the new Spring/Summer clothing from brands, and I didn't want to shoot any more fall ;) So, I figured why not shoot some film?
Margarita is just as the video, adorable, fun, playful, and hip.

New Story- Amanda Murphy

Recently I shot Amanda Murphy for IMG, for Eliza Magazine. Amanda has only been in NY modeling for a few months and will definitely be a big face soon. Her natural beauty is just stunning. She sports the short bob cut, and it fits her perfectly. And yes, she is as sweet as they come.
