My dear friend Greg Scaffidi of the New York Times lost a photo assistant Tuesday night (He could have sworn he put him in his left coat pocket!), so yesterday morning, starting at 6:30 a.m., I stepped in to give him a lighting hand with Tory Burch's Fall 2010 presentation in Bryant Park. Greg has been at the tents* everyday for the past week doing a ton of "First Look"** shoots for the Times and guess what, they are all pretty awesome. So awesome, in fact, that the Times selected one of the First Look: Tory Burch photos as one of their global photos of the day.
To see more of Greg's beyond beautiful work, please check out the links:

NYT "First Look" slide show: Carolina Herrera
Obviously Herrera is my favorite so far, both in Carolina's designs and Greg's lighting, but if you wish to see more of his "First Look" slides, just use the drop-down menu on the right side of the page. Totally worth the 68 seconds it will take you.
P.S. - It's kinda cool to know you participated in an NYT global photo of the day. You helped make the day's news, less than one second in the history of the world. Crazy. Weird. Awesome.
*Arrangement of tents in Bryant Park which bi-annually hold New York's biggest fashion shows. Thhhey're pretty fun.
**A preview shot of each model's "look" prior to being presented on the runway. You know, sneak peak, first photos - same idea.
