Young Paris getting ready for the Blue Jacket Fashion Show

Anytime I photograph something new/different/interesting, it’s fun.

A couple of weeks ago, I shot a fashion show in New York City.

Now, I had done this before: Last year was the was the first time I photographed the Blue Jacket Fashion Show which brings together athletes, entertainers and celebrities to help raise awareness about prostate cancer (February is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month)

BJFS backstage pass

My company is a main sponsor of the BJFS, since we had a strong focus in beating cancer. Last year, I was really like a fish out of water. This year, with another year under my belt, I was able to navigate the backstage a bit better, get a good spot on the risers during the actual catwalk, and know what too look for and who to shoot much better.

Here’s a few highlights

Overall, it was a fun night. I was able to turn the photos around quickly to the company team that needed them, and they got some nice flight on social media. Always fun to step out of the norm, a bit.

Odds and Ends


While in New York, I wanted to get two rolls of film developed at the place my friend, Bryan, uses. Alas, no love. They could only do the TX, not the EB. They referred me to another place in Manhattan, but I never got the chance to get over there.

I did, however, see an original Danny Clinch hanging in the print shop. Almost looked like a painting.


And, I did Donate A Photo to help raise money for prostate cancer research! It’s a cool app, check it out.

Cleaning up all sharp like! But time to get back into the photo pit.

    • Thank you, Ty-Ron. Very sorry not to have the chance to see you in person this year, but I watched on-line. Sharp, as usual! Hope to be back in person in 2022.
