CRAIG AREND, photographer and blogger, Altamira: Models Off Duty

SHOWS HE’LL ATTEND: All the big shows, with special emphasis on shows cast by directors who participate in the European circuit as well, with the chance that their New York model picks will predict their Milan and Paris show model picks.

PARTIES HE’LL ATTEND: Narciso Rodriguez and maybe Purple.

WHAT HE’LL WEAR: Who said I had to wear clothes?

ON HIS FEET: Converse for mobility. I like to imagine myself as Michael Jordan spinning around people on the court when I have my camera.

IN HIS BAG: Camera cleaning cloth, liquid lens cleaner, extra memory cards and my schedule.

MODE OF TRANSPORTATION: If my fingers wouldn’t freeze, I’d ride my mountain bike. In reality, the subway or a cab share.

PERSON HE’D MOST LIKE TO MEET/SEE: Casting director Russell Marsh.

MORNING FIX: 12 shots of espresso.

NIGHTTIME FIX: Hot bath, soothing ocean music and a warm bed.

HOW HE’LL KEEP WARM: My trusty red scarf and superwarm thermalwear.
