This is what I do for a living. I don’t mean for money, although on occasion I do get paid for it. I mean for a living! This wakes me up, gives me joy and make me happy that I am alive! Being a photographer and traveling to the most awesome places in the world in search of exquisite images is hands down the coolest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Wherever I go, there are other shooters like me, too. I used to be intimidated, but not anymore. We are all looking for the same thing. Our own personal joy! Glad to be in such gorgeous company. PH.
I’ve decided to change “The Monthly Review” to “Around the Globe”.
I seek out style and inspiration everywhere I go. I don’t see the point in keeping it in one back yard. I want to include the whole world in this humble blog, one city at a time. I believe I can learn far more from inclusion than exclusion, so from here on out the VSR is going global. We are free to roam wherever we want with only one agenda and that is STYLE!
Let the new adventure begin!
I apologize. I’ve been away from the desk for awhile and I’ve neglected my posting duties.
I hope Danimal makes up for my absence. He’s definitely one to keep an eye on. An amazing model and very humble guy. Always a pleasure to work with him!

Nothing more refreshing than a Louis Vuitton pick-me-up when I’m feeling drawn and boxed in!

I had a lovely day shooting Miss Shreve throughout the Union Square area. We had a blast talking shop, voguing and goof balling! Hard to be in a bad mood when you’re around such a happy, energetic women. And she’s very easy on the eyes!

Great style is timeless, yet has no age limit. These young gents certainly prove this point by adopting classic bespoke style and making it young and relevant.
And very comfortable, too! All you have to do is think a little and make an effort and the results shine!
These three lovely ladies were showing their patriotic style and enjoying the sun at Union Street Fair.
Go USA! Go Summer! Go Red, White and Blue!
