Category Archives: Celebrities I met
I mentioned from my previous post that I will talk about the PDN Expo 2012. I know that its quite late since the show was this past October, but I would love to talk about my experiences for I actually had a great time. Also, this was my second show in Javits Center, after attending New York Comic Con. Even though I was not press this time, I still met amazing people! I received so many pamphlets, Photography magazines,product guides, and information on the latest DSLRS, portfolios hosting sites, lighting gear, and much more from tons of different vendors. Nonetheless I spent alot of my time around Sony and Canon DSLRs since I already own Canon cameras and I am planning to invest in Sony products. I am planning to obtain either a Canon Mark III with both 24mm-70mm lenses or the Sony Alpha a99 with similar lenses from Carl Zeiss to take my pictures to the next level. Lastly, I spent the rest of my time hearing from the Sony artisan photographers who gave amazing seminars to the public. They talked about how their usage of Sony cameras has made their diverse niches in photography such as portrait and fashion easier. You might heard of them, but meeting Micheal Jordan Smith, Andy Katz, and Me Kah Roh was perhaps the coolest thing that has happened to me this year. Oh, and I won $250 dollars from Borrowlenses.com. Hopefully, I will email them about the certificate. Stay motivated!
I didn’t expect to write a post about New York Fashion Week stuff since this is my first time doing the show. However, yesterday was perhaps the coolest day of this month. Not only did I got invited by an amazing model, but it was quite the star studded event. Michael Kuluva, a LA based designer shown his fashion line, Tumbler and Tipsy at STYLE360 at the Metropolitan Pavilion South. Sponsored by major brands such as Monster Energy Drink, Monster Beats, and Stoli, its quite the expectation when you have a popular video game dance party, lots of freebies, and tons of A-list celebrities. I took pictures of the Red carpet and met people from different outlets such as Signature Hits and amazing freelancers. The only two people I was familiar with was Nina Sky and Jojo. I was super lucky to grab a pic with Nina Sky, which is shared at the bottom of this blog below. I may not grab a pic of Jojo and I together, but telling her how much I love her music and the warming smile she responded was just as good enough for me.
It was quite overwhelming for me at first, but I remember how well I take those pictures and just let me laid-back self take care the rest. I got the best seat in the house to take the runaway shots of the models, including Olympian Alex Morgan. Among the audience members were Kris Jenner and Lance Bass of NSYNC. Never in a million years that I find Lance Bass or Kardashian in the same room as me. Nor, to have Ms. Jenner ran full body contact with me by mistake (she apologized) and to get a hug from my favorite NSYNC band member. Overall, my whole experience was amazing. From a male model rocking out a long black tutu, a random busty runway model, hanging out with G4, to even learning that I will suck at Just Dance 4 super hard, it was all quite unsuspectingly awesomeness!
