Photographer Aron Norman Forms Avant-Gard Theater Troupe--World Applauds

Ok, not really. But don't we look like one in this photo? Truth is, it was Aron's birthday and after a long day of shooting, we were getting just a leeeeetle punchy towards the end of the day.
Those scarves are part of the new RRR line from Rachel Roy. And even with our poor attempts at styling them, you can still get a hint of how cool her new pieces really are. And the best part? This offshoot line is affordable enough to warrant a splurge, even in a recession. Afterall, a girl's gotta wear SOMETHING, right?

Big thanks to Shootdigital for the upgrade to a bigger studio to accommodate our crew!

Where In the World is Photographer, Peter Rosa?

Feel like something has been missing lately, but can't put your finger on it? If it's not the summer sunshine it may just be the presence of a certain photographer and a certain location van. For the past week and a half, photographer Peter Rosa and cohort, Daniel Weiner have been making their way across the country. And this was no regular pilgrimage west--no sir.

Meet Shootdigital's location vehicle extrordinaire THE COYOTE.
It will be stationed in L. A. for the next 6 weeks so be sure to give Daniel a ring to hook yourself up with a free tour (just call shootdigital at 212.353.3330)

And if you really are feeling a looming void since those boys left, fret not. They have been chronicling their (mis)adventures via video and also on the shootdigital blog. Once the video has been edited you can bet your buttons we'll be posting that here to share.

For now, be sure to friend Daniel on facebook to catch pictures of the latest gastronomically daring attempt they've made on their stomachs . We don't want to give too much away....but when you stop at a BBQ joint located in the parking lot of a certain kind of questionable establishment, you need to call on some true American grit to see you through!

Peter Rosa Makes Us Fall for Fall Colors (and Sarah Parr)

So maybe we are rushing things a bit. It is, after all not even Sept 1st, but we just can't help ourselves. We are--sigh--in love with the new fall makeup. We think you will be too once you see it, even if it means the end of those long lazy beach days. Take a gander below as Peter Rosa captures Sarah Parr working it for fall. And don't despair--summer is like that cat--it always comes back.

More of his work here and here.

Chris Fanning Says Shape Up or Ship Out.

Well, not exactly--he's no meanie. But we here at Seed do want to remind you to continue your workout routine even after summer's rays are but a distant memory.

May we suggest picking up the latest Shape Magazine Fitness DVD (see pic below)? It's got some serious moves that may or may not be possible in a NYC apartment. We think it sounds like a fun adventure to try at least once anyway.

And below are a list of possible excuses you can use when your roommate comes home and finds the apartment trashed after your cardio kickboxing and strength training routine is complete.

1. there was a freak earthquake that only seemed to shake this one apartment!
2. those darn rats!
3. so i got a cat to help with the rats (see above). i know i should have checked with you first especially since it wrecked the place. good thing i took it back, right?
4. the mta!
5. I told you it REALLY upsets me when you leave your hair in the drain (and then flex your new giant muscles).

Marcqui Akins' on the Virtues of Music and Photography

There is a highly controversial text attributed to Leonardo da Vinci, entitled Leonardo On Painting. In it, there is put forth the argument that, painting, amongst all forms of perception, is of the highest. Well, that's all well and good, but Leo never got to see color photographs of up and coming rap artists, now did he? Guessing he also wasn't too privy with the whole east coast/west coast beef.

We will let the reader take a peek and judge this one for yourselves. And may we suggest rapper Rocett's own playlist, here.

Of course, more of Marcqui Akins work can be found at

More from Fox's TCA Event: Marc Kelly in the HOUSE (courtesy of Aron Norman)

Aron Norman: Full of Glee Shooting Fox's TCA Event

And did we mention it is in L.A.? Along with Shootdigital's tech, Marc Kelly, our team was hard at work to help Fox promote it's new fall lineup.
Hard at work when they weren't hanging out with the famous cast of Glee, that is! As you can see, Aron Norman fits in perfectly. Ok well, with a black shirt he might not fit in completely perfectly, but don't hate. His red shirt was just in the wash that day. Besides, everyone in New York wears black, right?
If any of the Glee writers are out there listening, we think Aron could make for a great addition to the show (when he isn't shooting, of course!).

More of Aron Norman at work on his new personal site here.
And if you just can't get enough of him, please be sure to check out his work at seed.
