She brought on board the incredibly talented and diverse model Jewel Thompson and we started getting the shoot in motion. While on set (at the magic loft in Atlanta), my long time genius level fashion designer...

Larry English is one cool ass dude. I’m standing before this mountain of a man… and this quiet funny and really cool dude just looked and smiled and acted like there wasnt a care in the world (and this was BEFORE the NFL Lockout). In the following hours of talking and laughing and working with him I realize that he is not only an avid golfer with an awesome Foundation and a tendency to smile (and make every woman in the...

It was also one of my first times working with talented makeup artist and hair stylist Tinaya Weems and also with clothing stylist and the...
