This past weekend I biked in the annual D.C. Tweed Ride produced by Dandies and Quaintrelles. What a day. The weather gorgeous, the people beautiful, and bikes dandy. A portion of the proceeds from the Tweed Ride went to Arts for the Aging. Not only did I bike, I also photographed the ride. This was no easy feat with my hulking Canon 7D hanging from my neck. Don’t bike and photograph boys and girls. I’ve organized the photos into sets and here is the first in which I’ve simply titled – Portraits in Tweed. Stay tuned for the rest coming later this week.
A Celebration of DC Style – Presented by ReadysetDC.com
For those that didn’t make it to Fashion District last month or those that were there and just want to relive the night, sit back and enjoy this video produced by ReadysetDC’s Brandon Bloch. A couple of weeks before the event, I shot promotional photos of the designers. Photographing them at Stroga was a pleasure, and I’m glad I got to spend some time with them leading up to the show. Check the recap at of Fashion District at ReadysetDC.
D.C. ya’ so sexy.
Recently I got to play fashion photographer in Miami. My brother Chris Clayton, aka Chris Cardi debuted new looks for his line. The shoot lasted all day, no permits, straight guerilla style. My brother worked the reflector and served as art director. Can’t wait to work with him again. I’m so proud of my brother, watching him take concepts from paper to thread over the years has really been inspiring. I really could get used to life as a photographer on South Beach.
Here are a few images from the shoot.
Those familiar with or missed the D.C. Tweed ride, next week is your chance to don your best seerscuker for the Seersucker Social. These are some photographs from a recent promo shoot in collaboration with ReadysetDC and Eric Brewer of Dandies and Quaintrelles. More on Flickr. Cheerio.
