Yesterday Andy and I got up at 4:00 a.m. to catch the first flight out of Charleston. Where were we headed? NYC baby! It's very rare that Andy and I can enjoy time together, but it's really great when we can spend some quality time together, traveling and doing "photo" stuff!
Our first stop was the Bathhouse Studios, which is Alyssa Adams' place. She and her son, August, have been kind enough to let us shack up with them for a few days. After we got settled in, we jumped into a cab and made a b-line to B&H. I immediately called our good friend, Gabriel Biderman, who works for B&H and asked him to meet us.
Okay, let me introduce the folks in the picture above... on the left you have the quintessential "B&H Dude", in the center is the very-dapper Gabriel and on the right is thee man himself, Andy Dunaway. I'm pretty sure he's trying to spend our hard earned money. What little we have (wink). But that lens is a Betty to be sure.
I finally got a bonified movie clapper for my multimedia pieces. It was a pain trying to sync my audio to my video just using hand claps. LOL! Now I can use THIS!
I'm not too sure what Gabriel is insinuating here, but I am sure it's in regards to Andy's... umm... very long lens... yes.
For all you New Yorkers out there, Gabriel Biderman will be having an exhibit launch today from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The address is: 46 East 46th Street, New York City. Now, if you do NOT make it to Gabriel's show, do NOT fret. He is coming to CCforP! Yes he will be sharing his beautiful work, but he will also be sharing some of his nocturnal natures behind a camera. Why be so revealing? He's having a Nocturnal Photography Workshop at CCforP in June.
Today is also the EAW Staff, Faculty, Alumni and Black Team gathering night. If you are interested in clinking some beer bottles with me or Andy, come on down to:
"Drop Off Service"
211 Avenue A at 13th Street
New York, NY
From 6:30 - 9:30
Gabriel got us lunch at the really great diner across the street from B&H. Thank you Gabriel! We'll pick up the tab on the next go-round.
Here is a picture of me on the phone with CBS about a short minute appoint plan. Andy and I met with one of the producers and had a nice talk. More to come on all of that thought... in the mean time... While at the CBS studios, I did have a Katie Couric siting! CRAZY!
Here are some of Andy's photos....
