All Things Detroit, March 26, 2017

All Things Detroit, the annual gathering of Detroit's small businesses and consumers, was held at Eastern Market on Sunday, March 26, 2017. The sheds at Eastern Market were packed and the 17 food trucks had long lines...many sold out all their offerings. Kudos to Jennifer Crawford of Ask Jennyfer, organizer and conceptualizer, on a great event!

 

 

Zuvaa Pop-Up Shop - Detroit

Great fun stopping by the Zuvaa pop-up shop last weekend.  Beautiful women, exquisite clothing, and a vibe that was infused with elements of the diaspora. Music from the Caribbean, African nations, and elsewhere added to the atmosphere.  Looking forward to seeing them again.  Make sure you put them on your list if they pass through your city.   https://zuvaa.com/ 

This shoot was also very special to me, as my 8-year-old son was my second shooter. He did a fine job and I'm soooo proud of him.  

Murals in the Market, Opening Night Print Exhibition - Eastern Market,Detroit, Michigan

This is the full album of the opening night of Murals in the Market, at Eastern Market, Detroit, Michigan.  The event featured limited editions from all the artists participating this year.
Hosted at the 1xRun warehouse, there was a steady flow of artists, designers, and art patrons, all bringing a friendly and engaging vibe.  I'll be posting more pictures of the other Murals in the Market events, so please make sure you come back to my page for more coverage.

Special thanks to Jesse Corey and Michelle from 1xRun/ Inner State Gallery for all their help.

 

Photo Shoot with Kelsey and Jacob.

Last weekend, I joined 4 other photographers to photograph Kelsey and Jacob in Southfield, Michigan. These two young models were very hard-working and responded well to direction.  I look forward to working with them again.  Here are a few images from the session. 

Another Corvette in Ypsilanti

Here's a rear view of a Corvette I photographed at a recent Depot Town Cruise Night in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

The reflections were an amazing compliment to a beautifully maintained car. I hope you enjoy viewing this image as much as I enjoyed taking it.

Lavender Festival, Armada, Michigan

Perhaps one of the best festivals I've attended all year (and the best smelling), the annual Lavender Festival in Armada, Michigan was full of activities for all ages.  There were a variety of vendors, selling plants, craft items, food (including lavender ice cream and lavender lemonade), and clothing.  Periodically one both featured lectures on how to care for your lavender plants and another hosted animal demonstrations, featuring a porcupine and hairy armadillo.

I'll definitely return next year.  Feel free to comment and/or like the gallery below.
