The Orange Man
Well today was my day to go to Photo Expo in the Javits Center in NYC. This is their blurb to explain what it is: "PHOTOPLUS was founded in 1983, and is the largest photography and imaging event in North America. The ultimate experience for anyone with an interest in photo, video, and visual storytelling to get up-to-date with latest industry trends." I have been going to this event since 1983 and they have every imaginable piece of photo equipment - cameras, lenses, lighting, accessories, backgrounds, books and classes. One of the things that many companies do is they hire models - sometimes the more bizarre, the better. The models move around a small stage and pose for all the photographers (that would include me) who click away with their cameras. This model was amazing! In his costume, in his makeup, his energy, and in all his moves on the stage! He was absolutely first rate and the most interesting photographic subject I saw.
