Khatsalano

A relationship begins, My Dream Boat…. Feathercraft Khatsalano, 18′ of techno love!

The deal of the century!  My Dream Boat!  Feathercraft Khatsalano, an 18′ aluminum framed hypalon & poly skinned beauty.  This one is just too much for words, I am now held captive by a full schedule and unable to get out and play but still I got out the boat the other day to inspect it and do some minor repairs.  Can you believe this fits in a backpack?  A great big heavy backpack but still… you can carry it.  My office is on an island… its seven blocks from the water and on the 5th floor.  There is no way to get the boat out of my office without taking it apart again other than throwing it out the window which has it’s own issues.  Oh well, it’s back in the pack again today.  Hopefully I can get out one day next week and put her on the Hudson.

My Compact 36th Street Studio

 

I moved into another office/studio recently, this time in Midtown West on 36th Street.

Most of my work is still on location, and in reality, all I need is a good space with a freight elevator reliable enough to get my equipment down to a taxi.  For just a little bit more dough I upped the footage to have a play space.  The majority of the shots in my current portfolio were taken in Manhattan office spaces more cramped than mine, so I thought I’d give shooting in it a try.

Results: it works!  Here are two rounds of model testing.  I shot another gig last week in here with models lounging naked on a riser, but to see that one, you’ll have to go to the gallery opening in a few months when we get it all together.    For today —  Sherry P — a fun girl to work with!  Tiny studio, yet compact, efficient, and sleek!
