“Mikayla and I met through Instagram.  It was the first but definitely not the last time we will work together.  As it turn out, we have a lot of mutual friends—including her mom.  She was fantastic to work with!  Athletes, or dancers in her case, have an amazing sense of their bodies.  I was able to give her a general sense of what I was thinking for each area/outfit and she nailed it.  Right from frame one, the shoot was fire.  Getting access to a friend’s rooftop patio, along with a bag of clothes which I asked her to bring, and some beautiful natural light was all of the inspiration we needed.  We picked an outfit for each scene and went with anything that felt right.  Having learned how to shoot with film, my aesthetic is very clean and simple, with some subtle sex appeal thrown in. I’m not down with a lot of digital trickery.  In the future I hope to continue creating more dope work and to develop and grow as an artist.  I would love the opportunity to travel and work with bikini, streetwear brands and modeling agencies and plan to have my own t-shirt line someday.”

“Working with Barry was a lot of fun and easy! We found each other on Instagram, he made me feel really comfortable and it felt like we were just hanging out. Barry chose the concept and I was more than happy to work with him. He wanted to shoot outside but we kept getting rained on every time we scheduled to shoot. By the time we got together he knew exactly what he wanted which was great for me. I want to continue modeling, hopefully travel more for it but definitely continue modeling for as long as possible!”
