NAHA 2018 Mens Hair collection – finalist. The collection has a mix of textures and cuts yet they all share angles – I used a soft box at strange angles to light the collection at Redken NYC. Photography BABAK Hair Jamie DiGrazia
Soon after my wife and I finished looking for houses for sale in Atlanta we decided to take a trip to NYC where we took a walk about in East Village and Washington Square Park. I prefer shooting street photography at night because I feel the night takes away some light and color distractions and always can be more dramatic. Shooting street video at night has it own challenges but I wanted to capture the Saturday night feel of East village in 2017s NYC. I find old street photographs & films ( if any) of old NYC or other cities fascinating. Its always interesting to see the changes and how and what people were like. Hope some of the images age well.

I photographed this image while I was going to a hair fashion shoot in NYC. I always carry a camera some where that is easily accessible. Camera in a bag is pretty much useless for street photography because by the time you pull it out and turn it on the moment is long gone. Street Photography is all about seeing things that are going to happen and be ready for them.
Street Photography in the rain adds an interesting element to the photos. The wet pavement gives you high lights that make other wise ordinary photo stand out. It also gives you a bit of a cover from the subjects noticing you. People usually look down and don’t look a round when walking in the rain. Photo BABAk NYC
I noticed this guy listening improved musicians in Washington Sq Park NYC – He was jumping from seat to seat and at one point he got down on the floor smoking. it only lasted a few seconds. I like the positioning and his gesture. I shot this on my Fuji x 100 BABAK Photo

Had a chance to Photograph the Tom Keifer Band [ Lead singer of the Group Cinderella ] at the BB Kings In NYC last night. The level of energy out of this band is 11. Make sure you catch the show when it comes to your area. I shot this with the harsh over head lights of the cinder block walled hallways of the back stage. After the show shots are a lot grittier more emotion filled and more real to me. Thanks guys BABAK
I shot This model Back stage right before she went on stage at Intercoiffure NYC 2017 – I find the energy and the grungy light back stage makes for very iconic photographs with good stories for future generations. Some times back stage is the stage. This was Van Michael Salon team presentation model at the Show.
I like to Thanks the Intercoiffure for presenting me with the Presidents awards at the show – much appreciated – Photo BABAk With very high iso and low shutter speed
