Beautiful Pictures

I have a new favorite blog (besides this one, of course)!  It is by the famed fashion photog Tommy Ton.  His blog is jakandjil.com.  And, it is full of gorgeous fashion photography.  A great place for inspiration, especially on a very dreary, gray and rainy day.  

I have come to love his photography even more after reading an interview that he did last year.  He talks about how he was just a kid who loved fashion, but wasn't quite sure where to go with it.  After trying out different jobs, he decided photography would be the way to go.  He taught himself and eventually started buying plane tickets to London and Paris to sit outside of the shows and take pictures.  And, now the rest is history!  He works for style.com, shoots fashion campaigns and sits in the front row at all of the shows.  It is a great story of following your passion...

The photos below are some recent shots from outside the shows and behind the scenes of Jason Wu and Proenza Schouler...  Love!

These photos are fabulous, but I don't know which is more inspiring... the images or his story???
