#366PhotoSeries: Shot by @Calligrafist | Featuring @Russy_Simms [Son of @RevWon x Child Star x All Around Cool Kid] | 01/17/16 | At Milk River for His Big Brother #JojoSimmons Baby Shower. We All Should Remember Russy From The Major Hit Reality Show #RunsHouse on @MTV, He Was The Cool, Dope and Silly Kid on The Show. I Was Walking Around and Saw Him in The Cut and Was Like "Yo That's Russy, Yeaaaaa Def Need Him in My Series". Didn't Know Him at All, But Seeing Him Grown With A Beard and Just Cool, Was Dope, Because All I Could Relate to Was Seeing Him as a Little Kid on TV. After Meeting Him and Talking for a Little… He's a Regular Kid, Who's "Too Cool" and Quiet. Definitely Glad I Got to Capture Him. Thanks Russy. | Photo Num. 17 of 366 | #CalligrafistPhotography #GetShotUpByCalligrafist #RussySimmons #RussellSimmons #ChildStar #RevRun #TeamSimmons #MTV #TravelNetwork #YoungSimmons #HeadShot #Portrait #PhotoSeries #PhotoADay #Day17 #366DaysProject #CalligrafistPhotoSeries #PhotoOfTheDay | Email: CalligrafistPhotography@gmail.com to Set Your Date [IG Name + Shoot Date].

#366PhotoSeries: Shot by @Calligrafist | Featuring @DJSelf [DJ "The Prince of New York" x #Power1051] | 01/17/16 | At Milk River for #JojoSimmons Baby Shower. I Met Self About a Year or 2 Ago Randomly at an Event, We Said What's up and That Was That… Over The Next Couple Months We've Ran Into Each Other, Aren't Close in Anyway, But There's Mutual Respect When We See Each Other. Self is One of The Hottest DJ's in The Country, Not Only NYC. I Have a Appreciation for His Grind and Skills as a DJ, and His Recent "Reality Buzz" Doesn't Hurt for His Brand Either ! | So When I Saw Him Yesterday, it Was a No Brainer to Include Him in My Portrait Series… He Was Down Without a Second Thought After I Explained The Vision. This isn't The Picture He Wanted Me to Use, But This Pic is The One I Chose, Because of The Focus of His Eyes and The Wall Behind Him Tells a Story to Me. The Other Was "Just a Dope Photo". I'll Post it Later. Maybe. Thanks Self !

#366PhotoSeries: Shot by @Calligrafist | Featuring @RaeHolliday [CoFounder of @TheSFPL x A True NYC Hustler] | 01/16/16 | Last Night Before He Hosted His Event at The Royal in Union Square… Rae is Someone I Met at a Fashion Show About 3 or 4 Years Ago and I Wanted to Interview Him [Back When I Thought Being an Interviewer Was My "Thing".], Long Story Short it Didn't Happen. This Was The Beginning of My "Entertainment Career", so Over The Next Couple Months We Kept Running into Each Other and Fast Forward Years Later We are Cool and I No Longer Want an Interview, lol. Rae is Someone Who Has Given Me Advice on Numerous Occasions and Someone Who Continues to Look to Excel in His Craft. | Rae is a Motivational Speaker x Party Starter x Inspiration to Many | Photo Num. 16 of 366 | #CalligrafistPhotography #GetShotUpByCalligrafist #RaeHolliday #InspiRaetion #RaeIsNext #RaeOfSFPL #TheSFPL #StuffFlyPeopleLike #BlackAndWhitePhotography #BlackAndWhite #PhotoADay #Day16 #Portrait #PhotoSeries #366DaysProject #CalligrafistPhotoSeries #PhotoOfTheDay | Email: CalligrafistPhotography@gmail.com to Set Your Date [IG Name + Shoot Date].

#366PhotoSeries: Shot by @Calligrafist | Featuring @OliverLLuke [NYC Fashion/Published Model] | 01/15/16 | Oliver is a NYC Based Model, Who's Face Has Been Seen Around The Country on Many Brand Campaigns and Can be Seen as We Speak on Posters and Billboards. Oliver and I First Met 2 or 3 Years Ago During Fashion Week at a Show He Was Walking in and I Was Shooting, and Have Bumped into Each Other Countless Times Sense… Yesterday in Times Square Was Fun and on That 42Degree Weather Day in December We Created Some Dope Photo Magic. The Above Picture is Just a Taste, #StayTuned. [There's Very Few Male Models I Like to Work With, Either They're Too Feminine or Too Full of Themselves. Oliver is Very Even Keel and Professional.] | Photo Num. 15 of 366 | #CalligrafistPhotography #GetShotUpByCalligrafist #MaleModel #Model #OliverLuke™ #OliverLuke #Brooklyn #TimesSquare #TrenchCoat #MensFashion #MensWear #PublishedModel #JawLine #Portrait #PhotoSeries #PhotoADay #Day15 #366DaysProject #CalligrafistPhotoSeries #PhotoOfTheDay | Email: CalligrafistPhotography@gmail.com to Set Your Date [IG Name + Shoot Date].

#366PhotoSeries: Shot by @Calligrafist | Featuring @PhillyFreeway [Legendary Philly Artist] | 01/14/16 | I've Known Free for About 7Years, First Linked Up in Detroit Working With My #CIGM Brothers. Fast Forward to Yesterday, We Linked Up to Shoot for My 366 Series and Catch Up [Talked About Life]. We Took Many Photos Yesterday, But The Reason I Chose to Use This Photo is Because Everyone Loved The "RocaFella Era" and Free Was and is a Major Part of That Era. Do Your Research, Tell Me How Many Artists From That Era are Still Relevant and Making Moves Like Free ??? and Check His New Project #FearOfAFreePlanet. | Photo Num. 14 of 366 | #CalligrafistPhotography #GetShotUpByCalligrafist #Freeway #PhillyFreeway #TeamEarly #Philly #RocaFella #ItsTheRoc #StateProperty #PhotoFocus #Portrait #PhotoADay #Day14 #PhotoSeries #366DaysProject #CalligrafistPhotoSeries #PhotoOfTheDay | Email: CalligrafistPhotography@gmail.com to Set Your Date [IG Name + Shoot Date].
