A few months back
I had the chance of really looking at Kayne West and Amber Rose interact.
For the majority of that night
I stood in the background waiting for my chance 2 talk 2 Kayne West.
I am not a papparazzi.
I truly belive that we are all humans even if you are 1 of the most famous people in the world.
I won’t sell my soul 4 a photo
In the meantime
I watched Kayne and Amber from a distance 4 over 2 hours
In that time
Kayne told me:
 Life is about loving one woman.
He didn’t actually tell me those words but he told me in his eyes.
Kayne West
A man who has women throwing themselves at him only had eyes for a woman named Amber Rose
I understood why he was attracted to her
Her lips..Her body…Her Style
And that was it.
I wasn’t able 2 understand more

I didn’t understand because I didn’t know her personally.
All I could see was the physical
Until last week
On Thurs…..I had to meet Amber Rose and D.J Clue at Club M2 in N.Y.C







D.J Clue is my youth…………..
He was the reason for me 2 explore and travel outside of Astoria in search of his  newest mixtape when it was actually on a Tape.
Watching him spin brought me back in time
Taking the F train to Jamaica Center
Walking around and being surrounded by Hip-Hop at it’s best
I just wished my old J.H.S School friends were with me









Later on that night is when I was truly amazed…….

Hanging out with Amber Rose at M2 was the best.
It wasn’t the best because I was hanging out w.a fashion trendsetter
It wasen’t the fact that she was beautiful in her own way
It was the B.E.S.T because
I was able 2 see the Real Woman behind the shades.

I saw a woman who understood that her fans R the reason why she will continue 2 be a success
With or Without Mr.West….











I have been surrounded by alot of celebs and have wondered about fame.
The feeling of being loved and admired.
The style of being able 2 make someones day w.a photograph or a quick hello.

Amber made peoples night.
She will forever be known as a cool girl in the eyes of the people who were at M2 that thurs night….
She literally left the V.I.P and took the time 2 take pics with her fans.
When she got back into the V.I.P
I had 2 tell her how cool she was for taking photos and also the time 2 take it
She smiled at me
“It’s not a big of a deal. I remember how it was when I saw a celeb and I wanted to take a picture. I L.O.V.E my fans”
With those simple words
She made me realize Amber Rose is the B.E.S.T









I saw a woman who likes 2 talk about girl stuff w.other girls who like 2 talk about girl stuff









I saw a woman who is able 2 hang out with 1 true friend
Not an Entourage of people who are going 2 say Yes 2 everything she says
Because of that
She can appreciate the moment for what it is.
Hanging out w.a good friend on a night in the concrete jungle of N.Y.C












I saw a woman who is known through-out the world
but is still humble enough 2 give a cigarette out of her personal pack 2 my boy Rich Santos 
Lighting it  up for him.
We were both amazed by that
Strangers in the street won’t even do that….LOL









Amber Rose is Human
I agree with Kayne West 100 percent.
Life really is about being w.1 woman
Yeah….Lust is Powerful
Lust defeats L.O.V.E alot of the times
But when L.O.V.E winds……….
It has the feeling of success, understanding, Lust, and Friendship all wrapped into 1…

I met Amber Rose last week and I don’t know when or If I will ever see her again.
My B-Day  in less than 24 hours
Turning 31 is an insane number
As I look back
I have loved different girls who all have a A.M.A.Z.I.N.G quality about them..
J……..M………R…………H……….S……..The initals of the girls who made it happen in my life…

The Amber Rose of my dreams is prob asleep right now
Dreaming about how she can find her own Kayne West….

I don’t know who she is
How she looks like
What her inital are
In the meantime
I’m going 2 look at this pic of me and amber rose and remember the good times I had………………….


There had been a time where I could just rely on my photo skillz to get me work as a photographer.
Now, It is more about what I have to offer not only as a photographer but as a go-getter.
I started working at Club M2 in NYC because a really close friend of mine by the name of Brenda Staudenmaier had gone on vacation and she needed me 2 fill in for her.
She was the in-house photographer for M2 and Pink Elephant.
On Sat July 26, 2009,
I was taking pics at M2 when security stopped me and told me that the owner of the club wanted to speak to me.
Turns out that Kayne West was there with his girlfriend Amber Rose.

The problem was that there were several bodyguards surrounding Kayne.
The owner was determined to get a photo of Kayne and wanted it no matter what.

I tried to take paparrazi style photo of him but was quickly stopped and asked not to do it again.
Me being who I am…Tried again as the backs of the BodyGuards were turned.
But, I was still not able to get a good picture


The owner of the club had saw me and asked if I took the photo. I said no.
He became upset from it and said that I had to get a photo no matter what.
Me being who I am became a man on a mission.
I waited until I had the right moment.
1 close moment came when I saw Amber Rose coming back from using the bathroom.
I approached her as a gentleman and asked her
“Amber, I work for the club, Do you mind if I take a photo of you?”

She taught about it for a few seconds and said “No, Sorry”………….I could tell that she said No because of reaction that Kayne would have.
I still thanked her and told her 2 have a good time. She smiled and touched my chest and said thank you.
Not only is Amber beautiful but she is also a nice.
I know why Kanye had only eyes on her.
I had a brief interaction with this woman but I could see that she is someone who has the looks and the personality to make a man become a better human being.
This brief interaction was a tease for me
That made me amped 2 get a photo.
I knew I could get the photo….

So. I waited and waited and waited some more
I waited another 2 hours before I saw another opportunity.
This time, I saw Kayne West and Amber Rose both leaving the club together.
There is a special exit that is used for Celebs and I literally Ran to the other side of the exit.
I jumped ahead of them and as they were walking down the hallway,
I approached Kayne and said
“Kayne, I work for the club as a photographer, would u mind if I get a picture of the 2 of you together?”
Amber Looked at me and Looked at him.
He tought about it and said Yes.
This is the photo that I took.

The picture was a great accomplishment.
Not because photo of Kayne and Amber
I felt that a sense of  humanity.
I got the photo because I asked him for a photo as a human being.
Not by being a paparazzi or a groupie just trying 2 snap the photo
Celebs are Celebs for whatever reason but they are human first.

The owners of the club were so impressed of the photo and my ability to get the photo that they offered me the in-house photographer job at M2 and Pink Elephant.

I truly was sad that my accomplishment cost a good friend of mine her job.
The only thing that saved me from saying No is the fact that brenda is moving to another state in September.
Brenda is a amazing photographer and most important a friend.
I will always L.O.V.E her.
This is a photo of me and her at her book signing at Barnes and Noble. She is the main Photographer for a website called
