How a truck driver taught the world to party

It all started with a camera…. was founded in 2004 by a long haul trucker.

Traveling across the country he was able to experience the magic, mystique and culture of every city and town he passed through. In 2003 he began carrying his camera with him in an effort to document his life and the people, places and experiences he encountered along the way.

After more than a year of traveling he’d accumulated an impressive collection of nightclub images, some of which even made publication for advertisements in his hometown Wilkes-Barre, Pa arts & entertainment weekly, “The Weekender.”

And it was then, in the summer of 2004 that he realized that there was a culture and individual flavor to every nook & cranny of America…. And the world…. And believing that the world wanted to taste this flavor, he began concepts on a website to display his nightclub photos in an effort to share with the world the nightlife and party culture he’d found.

After several weeks of conceptualization he found himself with a dilemma-what to call it. His first two notions were respectively ( and ( Besides the fact that both names were already taken they fell short in two other ways. Where’s the party seemed too weak for the harder-edged profile he had in mind and Partycrasher seemed downright rude.

In addition, neither names were unique or exclusive enough which was something else he was steadfastly insistent on. While discussing the matter with a friend he remarked that he wanted to form something of an exclusive social nation-like a world wide wide clique and so ( was born-or so he thought.

That brought one other problem, besides uniqueness in the name making it practically impossible to mistake (or forget) the title had to have the word “party” in it. “After all,” he said, “Partying’s what this thing’s all about.” His friend replied, “how bout’ (Partyclique).” He thought for a moment and said. “No.”

I consider myself wealthier than most people because I’ve been around longer and have more experience..

The Man About Town photographing Amanda Chandler

Here’s a self portrait of me photographing Amanda Chandler in the second (short-lived) Studio Clique in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

2 different girls, 2 different studios.. Same funny circumstance

Two pictures, taken at two different locations, taken at two different times and taken of two different models.. What’s the connection? The above photo is of Jordache Kanovsky in the office of the first Studio Clique. The below photo is of Rhomalie Lavenza in the office of the second Studio Clique. Note the similarities.

The second Studio Clique was short-lived but carried over many artifacts from the first, mainly the computer. By the time the second photo was taken I had upgraded to a flat screen monitor and a better keyboard and downgraded my sound system (to be explained in a future video).

Other ancillary desktop items are the same in both photos and despite Rhoma being haphazardly covered, as the one who took both photos, I can assure you that like Jordache above, Rhoma is very much naked underneath!
