New Orleans Born and Raised
Recently I watched someone get talked down to and it made my blood boil. Just because you have more money than the other person does NOT give you rank! Even if you did have rank, speaking to another person in a demeaning way isn't cool.
What and How your words come out of your mouth is exactly how other people will remember YOU. I had to make a video so you can share it with someone who needs it. :)
Well, it's another school year and I have to say, I'm not ready for this chapter. When your kids are all in school life is hectic yet easy. They all live under your roof. We all share meals together. We laugh at the dumbest things when everyone is being silly....all of this will be different sooner than later. Elizabeth and will look at each other a certain way when the kids are doing something memorable and we both know times are changing. I remember being younger wanting that larger than life story to happen for me.
I used to think of all the time in the world I had to make any dream come true in my future. To think I'm living that future right now is exciting and scary. Do you ever feel like you aren't exactly living your dream life as an adult?
I can tell you this for certain..."Today is the first day towards the new chapter in your life IF YOU WANT IT TO BE!"
I know self motivation is the hardest thing in the world sometimes, but only YOU are in control of YOUR LIFE. If you want a new job start searching and stop complaining about the one you have. If you want a new car but you are broke, stop buying coffee and put $5 a day in a jar for a down payment on the car you really want. If you are tired of you...then create a NEW YOU! You don't need a gym to get fit, just go outside start jogging, cycling, walking fast, push ups on your front door step, etc.
The coolest thing about us humans is how we can literally change our surroundings when we want to. You are the most talented and gifted mammal on this planet and you dwell on is what you don't have in your life. Today, my life starts a new chapter with the kids back in school. Julia is a high school senior. Ellie is a freshman in high school. Jack is 4th grade. I am getting older yet always reinventing myself. Life is good.
It's not my fault I'm aging but my inner soul is still that younger version of me who wants to create everything in life I deserve with hard work.
"Today is the first day of the rest of my life!" Today I choose to attract the positive and destroy the negative.
Let's do this thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I enjoy being able to capture real-estate photography when I get the call. This house was a pleasure to capture. If you are interested in viewing the house, please contact the owner:

On Youtube today I posted the video on food photography and the delicious food of Lakeview Harbor. My vlogs are fun to do because I get to just be myself and talk to you.,..the camera...to thousands of subscribers...and mostly just you. :)
Well we dodged another storm out in the Gulf. By all counts "Barry" could have done some real damage but the good Lord had other plans for us. The news on TV had a rough job covering the storm since they expected the worse but nothing really happened to make it news worthy. I'm so glad we didn't have any catastrophic events take place but we sure did expect more rain than what we got. Well, stay tuned for our regular scheduled programming..... more photographic events are coming soon. :)
eMan, I have been so busy with work that I just couldn't get a good video going for my Youtube Channel. I know what you are thinking, GK it's just a Youtube channel! Ummmmmmmmmm, GOOGLE owns Youtube so guess what is also searchable...Y O U T U B E !!!!! I have come across clients shopping for photographers and my Youtube channel is actually one way to see me. Anyway I can get in front of people is what I'll do to succeed. This vlog however, was my vlog to nowhere. I started and stopped too many times during the last 2 weeks to have a cohesive video so I decided to smash them all together in ONE VIDEO. Here you go:
Every year when Essence is in New Orleans I get the distinct pleasure of working with famous people and companies. Last year I worked with Netflix and met Marlin Wayans for his move "Naked" at the Civic Center. This year I worked with Mr. and Mrs. Horowitz for their podcast at the Contemporary Arts Center Building downtown New Orleans.
You should do a little research on who Felicia and Ben Horowitz is because I was surrounded by powerful people with nothing but positive vibes surrounding them. I have always had more respect for powerful people that are down to Earth and motivating to those around them.
The Horowitz are worth multiple millions and they called me for the Essence event in New Orleans. My daughter Ellie said, "Dad, that's cool they called you!"
I have learned over my years that the Universe continues to put people in my life that are like myself. I like to professionally kick butt, laugh along the way and make your experience fun!
After all..."Money does NOT make the person great, yet GREAT people with money can change the world!" -GK
I love my new Fuji XT3 camera. My only concern with my purchase was will I be able to use my Canon glass with an adapter or not? The Fringer Pro Adapter has been absolutely amazing. The simple fact that I can use a Canon lens on a Fuji camera is surprising. The following images are from my son Jack's Allstar game last weekend. I am impressed by the sharpness, usability and the auto focus the Fuji XT3 gives me even with the Fringer Pro adapter on it. This is when technology is fun again. New tech that improves our lives is what has always been exciting with new gear. Enjoy your summer and stay focused on your dreams!
Do you have a product line you would like photographed for your marketing and media?
This session was from a recent clothing line from Miss Biagia Rosinia. She is a young creative who loves working with clothing styles and textures.
With most clothing I design I like for the silhouette to be on the simpler side and then to think of fun, new ways to manipulate the fabric I’m working with. With most of these pieces, I was really interested in finding ways to reinvent relatively simple fabrics and make them look more upscale. The bulk of my work uses cotton blends which are easy to work with and can be transformed without compromising the integrity of the fabric. I used acrylic paint to add texture and patterns to a lot of the clothing; paint is one of my favorite things to add to designs because it will be little different every time, making every piece is one of a kind.
Another key element with these pieces was finding uses for the extra scraps of fabric that usually get thrown away at the end of a project. This is how the idea for the big, fluffy jacket came about - the whole jacket is made from little squares of scrap fabric stitched onto a base layer. One of the pants and a top feature these little fabric scraps as well. I worked with Suzanne Perron (local New Orleans designer) while I was living in New Orleans, and she was generous enough to give me a lot of the excess fabric she didn’t want; this gave me access to some really cool textiles that dressed up the designs. Other than that most of the pieces are just a result of experiment with beading, different shapes and small design details that tie the looks together.
I find her clothes to be unique and stylish for the fun girl with a fashion sense. Here is my behind the scenes video of the studio work that accompanies her session. See you next time! - GK
