Oye Diran: One of my Favorite People

I'd be remiss if I launched the site without telling you all about the young brother who spent nearly 4 hours up, down and all around NYC with an a photoshoot for this site! I am always so excited when I see young people, especially people who are even younger than me doing HUGE things!

me with Oye Diran at the AYE, the HIV benefit put on by Miss Nigerian Independence 2011-2012

He's a great photographer and the owner of two brands, FE Photography , a company which he and his partner run to cover lifestyle events in the metro NYC area, and Arista Imagery, his solo initiative which focuses more on headshots and photoshoots. And over and beyond all this, he has a great head on his shoulders and always supports charity causes. Kudos brotha!

A few of my favorite shots from our shoot together are below. Enjoy!
