Xander does PhotoGraphics - blending portraits and stills into his own unique view dubbed 'Chimera', things that don't really exist until created in the shop. Photoshop is currently the muse. While still learning the latest incarnation, his early works are what shop developers sought to make easier in later versions. He began photography in HS and got the cover on the book his graduation year. Shooting in clubs and on the streets of NYC honed his eye and he graduated to yearbooks doing colleges and high schools. He opened a studio on Broadway in 2001 to explore studio work, completely devoted to digital photography. With 6 PC workstations and 1 Mac, he started creating web sites and pages for models, striving for the WOW shots & Showcase images that get web hits and page views. His latest foray is large format printing, moving into UVcure on a flatbed digital printer. While more commercial than artistic, it still leaves time to do shoots and create images for the web.

The traditionalist view of fashion, ie:The Runway, is a necessary part of the modeling experience and is also covered. Alternative Couture is part of the fun side of doing shoots. In the NYclubs, in the studio or in the great outdoors, it's all good, and just various sides of image photography,
as is the print and catalog side of commercial modeling. Thanks to Natalie, Lucky, Tanell, Baby Phat, Doucette Duvalle, Jayson Brundson and the fun guys of NY Couture for being a part of my page.
