Photos from AFRAM

Faces at Afram - Baltimore's Biggest African American Festival

I was super excited to attend AFRAM this year in Dru Hill Park.  I was most excited about having the opportunity to redesign the logo this year for their rebranding!  But I’ll talk about that on another post.  I wanted to share some of the photos that I took this year at AFRAM for their social media.

This summer I purchased a new Sony Alpha camera.  I’m so used to my Nikon and Canon cameras but I have fell completely in love with this camera.  It’s light, easy to use (even though I’m still learning) and I love the quality of images I take with it.  Dare I say it but I don’t think I can ever go back to Nikon or Canon.

I took my 85mm lens with me to AFRAM because I was mostly interested in capturing FACES at AFRAM.  Taking on the fly portraits of people in Baltimore having a great time.  And I think I was able to accomplish this.

I’m still trying to master action shots but again that’s another post for another day.  Thinking about doing a sports shoot soon!  But I hope you like them!


Soul Food Sessions and Coca-Cola in Baltimore

I want to share an exciting event coming to Baltimore and yes it involves food!

Soul Food Sessions  (SFS) has partnered with Coca Cola Consolidated  for “The Table is Set: A Four-City Tour Served With A Coke,” to spread that mission to Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Charleston.

The third stop of the tour will take place in Baltimore, Maryland on July 29.  To celebrate, I have partnered with SFS to cook up Charred Corn Crab Cakes with Watermelon Rind Slaw paired with a Coca-Cola Life.   This is such an interesting twist on a crab cake.  Baltimoreans are certainly traditionalist when it comes to our crab cakes.  But if you are up for something new, why not try out this recipe.  The crab cake is paired with a Coca-Cola Life and a watermelon slaw  to bring out the complex texture and flavors, yet lightness, of crab cakes.

This dish will be available at the event on July 29 at American Brewery in Baltimore.  I hope to see you there!  Your seat is waiting.

MoMA ATLANTIC/PACIFIC

Role: Creative Direction

MoMA came to thehappycorp for ideas of how to get more New Yorkers to buy yearly memberships for the museum.

Membership was only $75/year, so we created a 3 phase campaign.

Week 1: Installation in Progress.

Week 2: Cover the subway station in art.

Week 3: Plaster $75 price stickers all over the place.
