Another New York Milestone... / by Leroy Mikell

The feeling of not having anything new to put in my portfolio can subside a bit because I am clear to post both videos and yes photos of over a years worth of work.  Patience has been a hallmark virtue of my entire time here in New York.  I shot interview after interview product-shot after product-shot and video after video just to wait for the fateful day my first client and the site would be designed manufactured and readied for consumer eyes.

   But finally the day has come.  The website for Boojuu (www.boojuu.com), a brand I have featured here on my site a few times over the last year or so is up and running.  While it is all well and good that Boojuu is available to the masses (www.boojuu.com).  I am happy because I was the primary photographer for the entire site.  Yes I shot my second brand this year!  I feel like NYC is shrinking to a more manageable size and I am putting pieces in place. (See my last post on patience lol) The photos are going over well from the feedback I have been receiving.  I plan to throw some behind the scenes stuff up both here and on social media over the next few weeks.

I really stretched my comfort and skill set to produce the body of work you will be seeing.  I linked up and learned from other creatives shot frame after frame dialing in a style specifically for this brand.

Over the last year I dealt with and struggled through learning curves differences in opinion and collaboration issues like remaining your own brand while working so closely with and for another brand.  I feel so blessed in this moment and burdened with the fact that I didn't set a large enough goal. This time I have to shoot for the moon I have to believe in myself so much more I have to tell others their opinion of me.  I really believe in the mantra "Work Hard, Be Nice"   I really believe I can be even better without being an ego-maniac.  I am rambling now so just look at photos visit www.boojuu.com the site shot by me and leave comments so I know you heard me.
