ThingsToLookAt’s Top Voters
ThingsToLookAt is I'm in New Orleans. Quiet little southern town. who wants to shoot?
I don't think anyone reads this part... text always looses the battle against pictures. But just in case...
I'm Burke, a Photographer based out of Brooklyn. I also direct film and host burlesque shows in the city.
Most of all these days I build a house--a mad crazy castle, ship, hobbit hole church like thing--people have lots of opinions of what it looks like.
Check out www.BurkeHeffner.com to see more of my photography and motion work.

Some things people have said about my work:
"This is so exciting... Its a little risque... It's not... Um... Ah... This is not... Yeah... It's not Porn! It's definitely not porn."
--Bill Press, nationally syndicated talk show host.
"This is a great work of art, I must say. Its like something my father would hang in the garage when I was a kid."
--Bill Press, one week later.

<--- now that is a damn fine avatar.
Haha =] Horseheads because of Native Americas so.. western. But the town is quite dreadful. So I'm gonna go with Horror Movie =D
And so you did! Now you shall have to go and fix them ;)
No no no, tidying up is your sissy maid's job.
It Shouldn't. Be Sure You're Stretching Before, During & After Exercise, Taking Frequent Breaks And Having Plenty Of Water. Probably Already Know All That... But For Safe Measure And For Any1 Else Who May Possibly Read This And Needs A Reminder... = /... :P
I totally took a break for several years, and my mom was always telling me I stretch my limits. So I should be good right?
I am fan! Love your work!
Hi ! ThanXXX for the friend request ! And a million thanks for being part of my fans, really touches me when it comes from another artist. Have a rockin' day.
Love your work!
Thanks so much for the add. I adore your work!
Great last set!
From 2009?!? What! LOL
PS - Next time I'm in NY I think I need to make some time to shoot with you again!
I adore your work. If you were ever interested, I would love to shoot with you.
love your profile picture. damn...
Once you get your smoking jacket, can I sit on the arm rest of your big fancy chair as you open letters in front of a fireplace?
Thanks for accepting my FR
Heyoo! We are in the Showcase! Woohoo!
swoon swoon swoon ..... what a fabulous set. <3
Hello! Great work as always!
Hello new friend! Thank you muchly for your votes. I belive I owe you some bonus outtakes, so if you send me your email I will have them over to you in no time. Cheers!
Also: Are those stilts in your pants or are you just happy to see me? ;)
Thanks for the friendship! I love burlesque and I'm happy that we have quite a few great burlesque artists here in the Northwest.
Thank you for acceptingmy friend request! Btw, I love your avatar pic. Did you make the jacket?
I did... then sadly I tried to wash it one day and that was the end of it.
Oh booo!! I have a couple of outfits that I have to be really careful with. I foolishly threw a vintage dress in the washer and the seams all started coming apart. I still haven't fixed it yet :/
I want to drive to NY ;)
you know that i know that you MUST already own a smoking jacket. just sayin'. you ARE a dapper motherfucker.
I'm a little embarrassed to say I don't. I should. I really should. It is my style but no.
That letter opener sounds mega hot! I agree with Babs, a photo of you with your smoking jacket and letter opening would be sweeet!
Well, if you all insist.
Sounds a very cool letter opener. When you get your smoking jacket, how about a new profile photo of you wearing it with your new letter opener?
That's wonderful! It is in a somewhat obscure place but I think that's why it's a great place to live. :)
Thanks for accepting!! Have a great day! ;)
east coast in july! will u be around?
Well hurrah for damsels in dis-dress :) In a similar situation myself, promised no more shooting 'til I clear my backlog ... and it's driving me insane already!
Yeah, you is amazing Rach ;p
Point proven? ;) hehe

I agree!!! About the Good Sex comment. ^^
Thanks for the tip! :D My cellar, preferably. I dont often get a chance to leave here! But I would love to shoot.
I personally only have one or two of such experiences.....and they are quite depressing!
Dangerous, yes! Just ask all the strangled photographers covered with quicklime that are in my shed! JUST KIDDING! =p Loving your sets, as always ;D
Life... it is oh so rough.
Just the way I like it.
I try to take a dose of that medicine daily..keeps me young! lol
Haha that would be so awesome, I'd so watch that musical and sing along too! How would one direct that scene exactly... I'm laughing just picturing that one. It might have to be a comedy as well, don't think I could take that too seriously lol
True, very true......bad sex does the same thing only in a negative way!
Your status is so true! Must be why I'm in such a good mood today ;)
Thank you my friend :]
haha, and I'll pretend every photographer in NY is as good as you. ;)
Haha indeed, hoping to do a US tour one day in the not too distant future :)
