Calm Before the Storm

I feel like I am in the calm before the storm.

Monday I leave for Europe to cover the mens shows in Florence, Milan and Paris.
Return to New York and immediately host two parties for the opening of my first solo exhibit at Danziger Projects.
All while negotiating to shoot two ad campaigns and finalizing the contract on a dream project that I am dying to announce on this blog.
(not to mention that before I go, I have to be the subject of a fashion shoot for a really cool magazine - I am more than nervous to be in front of the camera this time)

All of this coupled with the fact that it has been extremely cold in NYC has led to a very tough shooting week.

I always knew that it would happen. All the things piling-up and feeling the temptation to shoot things that I might not really love but feel I should shoot just to have something new on the blog.

I am proud that I continue to resist that urge and that my readership is willing to give me the freedom to shoot what I (and you) can be passionate and proud of!

I take your vote of confidence very sincerely and it really bums me out when I don't have a few new shots every day. I feel good though knowing that you will return the next day ready to have a lively and fun conversation about style and fashion.

Next Tuesday will begin three to four months of intense shooting all around the world. I am tired just thinking about it but I can't wait to get going and take you guys along for the ride!

(ps - if you are in the area please stop by the opening night party for my exhibit at Danziger Project on January 22nd from 6-8pm, - I feel like this is really a party for us more than just an opening!)

you're awesome, Scott!
quality over quantity anyday!


Blogger PMBC said ... (6:52 PM) : 

I am too far away to join your party, but I will surely follow everything on this great blog. Thanks for the wonderful daily photos.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:57 PM) : 

I have been reading your blog pretty much every day for the past year. At first I actually didn't think you were such a great photographer - you can probably gather that since I look daily I have changed my mind on this.

The things that you have been announcing these last days (and, it sounds like, to come shortly) are long overdue successes. I would guess many of your regular readers realize (sadly but inevitably) that the continued commercial success that The Sartorialist has bought you may over time leave you much less time to post, and will think no less of you if this is the case.

Your talent, ambition and success should be an inspiration to all.

sounds like fun, bon voyage! and congratulations on your exhibit and all the fabulous activity around you.

do let us know if you see any decent raincoats. it's raining in san francisco and you would not believe the bad coats.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (8:36 PM) : 

for Matt 6:57pm
what i am in the process of setting up is a system that will let me shoot more and hence be able to do more posts.

The key is to make enough money from the blog so I don't have to do other projects to keep it going. If I can spend less time sharing my photos and writing with other media outlets then I can put more posts on this blog.

thanks for the support

I think this year will be a big step in that direction.

In the next year I think the content of the blog will increase and be used as both an inspiration and resource. If all goes to plan ( and it is a very achievable plan) we should see the results soon.

Sounds as if life keeps on getting better, Sart. Good on yer, mate! I would love to attend the Danziger Project soiree. And if I can manipulate my way on to one of my clients' private jets, I just might.


Blogger simplyolive said ... (9:21 PM) : 

...what i wouldn't give to be able to be in NY and attend your party!

i agree w/ you not wanting to shoot just to shoot and have something new to post---sort of a waste if you're not finding anything/anyone that inspires you...

can't wait to see the shots from your upcoming european travels-- and to hear the announcement of your dream project.



Blogger Lady N said ... (9:48 PM) : 

Thanks for being true to yourself on this blog. I feel that way sometimes too, feeling like I have to post something just to post something.
Good luck with your new project, can't wait to hear about it. It must be fabulous!

I am very happy for you and the projects you are going to take-on this coming year. Bravo!

Take a deep breath and make sure to enjoy yourself. After all - it's all a wash if you don't have fun.

I'll be looking forward to new fantastic photos...and if fantastic is a while coming then it's even better when it appears.

Have a great time at the shows!

Blogger Andrew said ... (10:18 PM) : 

There is a great integrity and dignity to your work that is rare in life, and especially in the fashion world. It's as if you were quietly upholding standards of excellence in a quiet, superb way...all the time doing it in a way that the lunatic style world tries to grasp, probably envies, but will never duplicate.

Use Ralph Lauren as your model...even after all these years of success, he has a modesty and self-assurance that never seems forced. You remind me of his ethic.

I've been reading this blog since the beginning (who's that Robert Burke dude? ;) ). Your blog was a bright spot during the bleak days after Katrina (if you only knew what that meant) and has been a regular part of my day ever since. You've widened my horizons about personal style while empowering my somewhat eccentric tendencies, and I look forward to even greater things from you in the year(s) to come.

Wow, how cool that you are both passionate about style and a great guy too! Whenever I'm out and about in NYC I always hope I'll feel a tap on my shoulder and you'll ask to take my picture for your blog. Hopefully we'll be able to meet on the 22nd!


Blogger Chloë said ... (2:07 AM) : 

Glad you're not willing to compromise quality for quantity - diluting the excellence of your blogs content wouldn't benefit anyone.

Considering dropping by your opening after school. I'll have to come up with a suitable outfit first, though.

And congratulations on all your current deals; looks like this year will be even better than the last. Looking forward to new and fabulous photos.

Safe travels; I cannot wait till the surge of posts come in. My vote of confidence is in the bag -your judgment call on quality before quantity was more than appreciated.


Blogger Françoise said ... (3:01 AM) : 

Scott - i don't want you to take pics of styles you don't truly adhere to. when i connect to the site and see no pics, i am of course a little disappointed, but always go back the next day, and the next, to see if there are new postings. your site has enough quality to keep me coming back, so no worries there. thank you for being so humble, this is refreshing, and inspiring.

Wish i could be there for the exhibition . As Matt has mentioned above this is long overdue success, however im so glad to hear your branching out into different projects and i hope the ball keeps rolling for the sartorialist ! the blog is special because it bring you in direct contact with readers and that is one thing other projects don't offer; so im glad your main focus is blogging for your readers and the pictures as always are inspiring. best of luck in 2008 ! :)

Blogger SartoriallyAddicted said ... (8:34 AM) : 

Sart, I shall give you three thoughts and wish you all the best of luck. 1. Delgating responsibility is a sign of great management skill...but nobody else will ever care about your project as much as you do. 2. There is no worse boss in this world than yourself. And 3. The only thing worse than busy too busy, is not being busy at all. So take it one day at a time, stay true to your love of capturing style on camera and don't stop. Thanks. Maybe I will make it on the 22nd.

in the years I've read this blog it's been fascinating and inspiring to see how your projects have changed and developed, and I can't wait to see what's coming up next. These little developments are usally the kind of details one reads in abbreviated form in those formal biographies that mark the Success Story, so it's really intriguing to be taken along the ride with you.

Most of all I love how you've retained your personal voice on this blog, and I hope that this is something you will be able to keep up in the future.

Dear Scott, I know life can be busy (let alone difficult) at times. I love the fact that your blog is always updated or rather, up-to-date but I would be very sad to see you post photos that you don't like (except if you'd post such photos to create a lively debate, but that would be rude to the people who had let their photos taken).

I've never commented on here, either, but I've been reading your blog since 2006! And I never, ever ever read blogs or have much use in general for the internet (my bosses always get mad at me for not checking my email, I swear it's like being in Office Space sometimes!) But your work is just wonderful, and I really am happy and excited to find a genuine person in the mess of anonymity and negativity that seems to run rampant on the internet. I've enjoyed your posts so much, and have shared it with my friends (one of whom is a fashion design major and used your images in a project on everyday dress in France!) Sorry this is so long, just felt like chiming in on the support and giving you another "congrats!" Wish I could come to the show, but make sure to have extra fun for all the people who read this and wish they could be there!

i saw you walking down the street today
completely surreal


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (10:47 PM) : 

So I guess this is a fulltime job for you now, eh Scott?

I wish I could go to this Danzig Project exhibition.
It's really cool to see how your career grows and blossoms.

Keep up the good work.
Hope you won't get overexhausted. But all this will be remembered forever. You are the first, and you'll have many imitators in the future. Think about that!

Just let it flow. You'll surprise yourself with how well things turn out. And yes, quality over quantity any day.

Taking on a new project is never an easy task, but hard work, determination and sticking to your beliefs and values does pay off....looking forward to hearing your upcoming plans!

Thank you for resisting complacency from the start of this blog and for being so open with us.

Happy New Year!

I am very excited for you! You might be exhausted, but you know it's all worth it.

You're a star!

as said before, don't feel bad for not posting everyday (everyday is not sunday ;). QUALITY over quantity. all the people visiting your blog can rely on you, no doubt about that.
best of luck for your upcoming exhausting voyage, i am looking forward to the wondeful ride full of inspiration.

please come to australia ! I would love to see what you would capture, and read everyone's comments about it...

pretty please ??!


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (8:16 AM) : 

From afar (aka as someone who comments on this blog!), it seems like you've handled an incredible journey very well. Your blog is still one of my daily favourites and I've increased my readership of other magazines because of your work. Looking forward to what you have in-store for us in 2008 and may the force (of style) be with you!

Oooh I wish I lived closer and could come see your exhibit.

Can't wait to hear your news!
Keep up the great work!!!

Your work is inspirational for all of us.Unluckily i cannot attend your exhibit because of the distance. But wish you all the best and can't wait to see your future work!!!


Blogger All Things Bright and Beautiful... said ... (3:31 AM) : 

Dear Sart! Let the ride begin!! Can't wait!!

i think the quality over quantity is an issue for all bloggers - that's why some blogs look like supermarkets and some like high end boutiques - not that either is better - it just depends on the way you want to go. And more power to both sorts I say.

Congratulations on all your exciting new projects! I'm looking forward to seeing your new shots here and in print, and I'm so delighted about your solo exhibit!

Best of luck for fun, fruitful travels in the next few months!

I've been reading this blog for a loooooooooong time, but never felt the need to post as I always loved the work full stop. But I do have to say, I really enjoy the way you incorporate your readers into your work. Try to never feel overwhelmed to please your readership, the good ones will always support your craft regardless if you post every month, or every day.


Blogger binge and purr said ... (7:32 AM) : 

Look forward to seeing the show at Danzinger.
There is such a harmony in the way you see style and the way you photograph it. If feels like you are a nature photographer documenting creatures of style in their natural habitat. Oooh, I like that. I was wondering if you have many people photographing you as you photograph others.


Blogger Off The Cuff said ... (4:59 PM) : 

Great job Scott - take your time and keep up the good work.


Blogger Calenna said ... (4:56 PM) : 

Sart -
Thanks so much for sharing your honest feelings and giving us some insight into your own stresses and worries. One of the very REASONS I love your blog is that you ARE selective about what you post and what you photograph. Your photos inspire me to aspire to a higher level of fashion, but your written posts inspire me just as much - if not more - to do work that I truly love... Keep it up, Sart!! Oh, and I can't WAIT for your opening night party next Tuesday!!
