ThingsToLookAt is That was easy...?





About Me

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 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.

    No no no, tidying up is your sissy maid's job.

  • Posted on 07/14/2012 by DoMiNouSQi   
    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

  • Posted on 07/15/2012 by ThingsToLookAt   
    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?

    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?

  • Posted on 04/11/2012 by DallasRainbow

    Thank you for acceptingmy friend request! Btw, I love your avatar pic. Did you make the jacket?

  • Posted on 03/28/2012 by ThingsToLookAt   
    I did... then sadly I tried to wash it one day and that was the end of it.

  • Posted on 03/31/2012 by SpecialK   
    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 :/

  • Posted on 03/21/2012 by Jesse Danger   
    I want to drive to NY ;)

  • Posted on 03/21/2012 by tmronin   
    you know that i know that you MUST already own a smoking jacket. just sayin'. you ARE a dapper motherfucker.

  • Posted on 03/22/2012 by ThingsToLookAt   
    I'm a little embarrassed to say I don't. I should. I really should. It is my style but no.

  • Posted on 03/21/2012 by RazorCandi   
    That letter opener sounds mega hot! I agree with Babs, a photo of you with your smoking jacket and letter opening would be sweeet!

  • Posted on 03/21/2012 by ThingsToLookAt   
    Well, if you all insist.

  • Posted on 03/21/2012 by EnglishBabs   
    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?

  • Posted on 03/09/2012 by Gypsy Moth   
    That's wonderful! It is in a somewhat obscure place but I think that's why it's a great place to live. :)

  • Posted on 03/08/2012 by Yovonna33
