'The Goddesses' get featured in Calligaris NY Photo Exhibition by Gabriel Johnson

What a great feeling this was! Just 2.5 years after making LeVue a thing, I get chosen to be amongst 10 photographers in NY .  I felt so honored.  And the 2 photos that were chosen, I love.  My subjects for the photos were super psyched.  We all were just there like kids in a candy store.


Thanks to Calligaris NY, Macallan, and Aura Frames for throwing us such a wonderful event.  The 9 other photographers were great too.  The work ranged from brightly colored street portraits to black and white landscapes to nude bedroom pieces.  900 RSVPs? Unbelievable.


I have been recently focusing my attention to Fine Art Photography and I've been receiving a lot of great feedback.  My two pieces that were chosen were apart of a series that were themed around Goddesses.  One being called Hestia, with dancer/model Zui Gomez and the other being called Aphrodite, with MUA Jessica Marie.  These two photos are just the tip of the iceberg in this series and when the series is complete, LeVue will be throwing it's very own exhibit and you will not want to miss it. Look out for the invite this summer!


Thanks again to everyone, and thanks Niki!

Angelic Maternity by Gabriel Johnson

Over the past weekend I got back in the studio and shot this marvelous couple Angel and Amanda.  Amanda is 8 months ready and is certainly showing. Coming from Harlem, this couple was ready to go once in the studio, with the help of Amandas friend, Lisa.   

Normally when I do these maternity shoots, I have some of the same routine phrases I say all the time.  These include "how many months are you?" "How long you guys been together?" Etc.  This time, when I seen the third-party come in, I also have a phrase for that as well.  So I asked "how are you? So are you the mom, sister, friends?". FAIL! 

She took offense to me calling her that and made me feel so bad after.  I eventually had to let her borrow my charger to even the score, so it's all good. 


Amanda was so cooperative and positive throughout the shoot and her images came out stunning.  Hope she enjoys and hopefully I'll see them again during the baby shower.


Take a look at a couple of the images here. 




We're back! by Gabriel Johnson

Hello everyone!  Long time no hear right!? 

Just wanted to update you guys and let you know that LeVue Photography is still up and running and has been more busy than ever.   I'll be updating the new blog, Behind NY, more periodically now, so stay tuned as I shoot, and tell.



Love. Does exactly what it wants to do. by Gabriel Johnson

Hello all, wanted to share my experience this weekend with you all.  This week I photographed this lovely couple all the way from Canada!  They were from Ottawa.  

We had a fun time and friendly discussion about life under and over the border.  They were really cool and down to earth.  We joked and played around while walking through the West Village.


One way I could describe this couple, VERY passionate.  Not just a little, they spared no time trying to be cute.  I would give a direction and say "okay, kiss" .... And when they kissed, it was like I wasn't even there anymore lol .  They are so in love and its easy to tell.


Here are a couple of my favorite images from our shoot.  Also placed as my featured collection for the week.
