La Época

I found this place quite by accident when my client, Phillip and I were touring one of my favourite barrios, Caballito. We felt like we stepped back in time in this museum/barber shop/cafe. It's off the charts amazing!

Check out our keen model, Jules (sadly no one was getting a close razor shave that day) and our talented barber, Ignacio. This place has been around since the beginning of time. Every instrument used is legit. The little cafe is old school. Ignacio told me they are the proud owners of the oldest barber chair in Buenos Aires. Damn.

All around, a super cool experience. The cerveza is freezing cold on a hot day, the staff welcoming and kind. Be aware that you will be charged a fiver to take photos.

Oh! To up the ante on the coolness factor, the shop becomes a tango show from 4:30-6:30 Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Couldn't think of a better backdrop for a few tango photos!

2 Days With Edward

Over the course of 2 lovely days, Edward and I toured, clicked, talked and laughed. We captured a slice of BA life in Palermo Viejo. We chatted with locals. We strolled quietly though the Chacarita cemetery. We took portraits of ourselves and each other. We went to markets. We put some mileage on our sneakers and our memory cards. We picked though musty 45s to decorate my bare wall and photographed the process. We drank coffee and wine and mused about photography and life. We edited. And edited. And edited some more.

Together, we took a bazillion images. Somehow, we edited it down to 21 of Edward's best for this post.

I thank my lucky starts to have such cool and talented clients! Don't you agree?

Bas and Dani - Campo Wedding

Bas and Danisa got married and it was off the charts incredible! In true Argentine style at a campo with gauchos, horses, a crazy massive asado (BBQ), ALL the teeny details handmade and designed by Dani, dancers who got everyone out on the lawn to boogie, friends, family, loads of love and last but certainly not least, an incredible couple that I am super proud to call my friends. Gracias amigas, here's to years of happiness xxxx

Ray Rocks Almagro

Look at this guy! He was such a sweetie.

Look at this guy! He was such a sweetie.

I couldn't wait to post Ray's photos of our tour though Almagro today. Not only did the weather cooperate but, we had some fabulous subject matter entering our frames. Ray said he needed some work on his composition, I disagree! Each image is thoughtful and interesting. What do you think? Oh, and Ray is not only an excellent photographer he was also a break dancer back in the day. This, I love.
