New stuff to share:

-Check out my new website!

The new

I was in the mood for something simpler, cleaner, easier to navigate and load. I -loved- my old website, but this new one navigates much better and it’s better organized. Please check it out.

-On the new site, check out my new work. There are new images in almost every section: Advertising, Beauty, Editorial, Fashion & Music. Also a new series: En Noir et Blanc. (love love love… hope you will too)

-On the new site as well, check out the new music video! (you can also see it on my Vimeo or Youtube)

-Last but not least, for all my running buddies and readers… I’m gearing up for my next Marathon/Photo Essay: October 17th in Long Beach! Cannot. Wait. So. Excited. I’m trying to make it to Chicago as well on October 10. But depends on $. We shall see.

-The Long Beach Marathon photo essay will be posted at the Spirit of the Marathon Photo Essay website on October 19th. I have lots of goodies planned for that photo essay, so stay tuned.

I hope you all had a great summer….




New Images @ Wonderful Machine

Probably the regular folk wont understand this, but as a photographer is always very interesting to see what other people choose as images representative of your work. I blogged about what images Wonderful Machine (my agency) picked to send on a mailer promoting my work recently. Now the images that represent each of my specialties on their website have been changed. No one asks you, they just do it… but that’s the best part because they are being chosen by experts who a) know what they are doing and b) have no “emotional connections” (lol) to the imagery. Anyways, totally random, but this are my new images at Wonderful Machine and… I gotta say I -love- their selections. And if those images represent how people see my work, I’m happy and I feel that who I am as an artist is getting through. And that is pretty priceless.

Wonderful Machine

Posted in New Work, Outtakes, Peeps, Promotion, Toky Photography, Website, Wonderful Machine by tokyphotography on February 2, 2010

My wonderful peeps over at Wonderful Machine just sent me a promo they sent out of my work to all creatives. I love to see how other people see my work and the images they chose to promote it. I thought I would share it with all.

Wonderful Machine Promo

I think that Wonderful Machine, as an agency is on to something with the way they are doing things. Things are not the same in the business as they were 10 or 5 or 1 years ago. I’m happy to have my work promoted by people that are innovating in the way they do things.

Just updated the cover of my website and the music section with photos of Mark Salling from Glee. Mark is really cool and a very talented musician who writes and performs his own music. I recommend his CD: Jericho/Smoke Signals. You can download it from iTunes of purchase it from his website.

Here are a couple of outakes that didn’t make the main site:

A sad that here at Toky Photography when we say goodbye to some work from the main portfolio/website. But now, thanks to this blog it can live forever in this space, safe from the evil editing of photo editor “bish” extraordinaire Lady Boss Amber.
