Little web publication for me (Web-lication)… from an old shoot I did with Monica Ollander @ Nous Models. The site is called Quixotte.com…!
My friend Sarah has an amazing Instagram page called Porn For Women… Get your mind out of the gutter…It's all clothed photography… More like 'eye candy' for the ladies. She and I collaborated as I was on my way to shoot my buddy Simon (most down to earth actor/musician/celebrity you will ever meet).
Got a little LOVE from Racked LA :) Shot H Lorenzo's new store on Sunset Plaza :) Architectural photography..? Don't mind if I do :)
Had one of the most amazing and professional experiences today! In less than 24 hours, Laura Longland (stylist) and I put together a total of 20 styles and shot 2 different look books in less than 6 hours. This amazing experience would never have happened without the additional help of our wonderful make up and hair artist Samantha Ward, lighting designer Peter Gibson… and of course Sophie Seymour (Two Management) & Sarah Malakul Lane (Elite Models)… Big ups to their respective bookers Emma Trim & Arturo Vega. Here are some of the looks…BCBG & BCBG Generations 2014.
So much shooting and editing…that it's been a while since I've posted. Here are some new shots from recent shoots. Enjoy!
Been shooting quite a bit lately and editing just as much, here are some new pics from my last shoot with the stunning Holly Hicks at Nous Models.
Here is the main group photo we shot a couple weeks back for HauteStreet.com/Muse Diaries…photographed by yours truly…starring "The Muses" Joey Tierney, Blanda Eggenschwiler, Cara Santana, Lana Jolie Carlson & Mandana Biscotti…. more to come
Here's some of the pics from my 1960s Mod Shoot with Maggie Mizner (model) Chelsea Soden (stylist) and Judith K (Hair & Make up)
The goal for this shoot was to playfully capture the authentic vintage look of the early 60s.
Earlier that night :) We decided to do a few random Blade Runner/ Futuristic Japanese Punk Style photos...
Had a blast shooting for S.Y.L.K!
Thanks to my amazing models Sidney Allison and Lina Sav.
This Saturday I was blessed to work with 2 amazing new models (Maggie & Ariel)...
Our goal was to capture a "Gritty Industrial Vibe" fashion story.

UK based artist Aitor Throup showcases a highly sophisticated 'art' clothing collection, surreal accessories, human size wire art... and illustrations. The crowd was live and the creations were intricate.
Spent the early part of my afternoon in a real cool indy record store in Silverlake. I had forgoten the authentic feel of what buying use to feel like... An intimate social experience. If that wasn't gift enough, a band started playing at 2 in the afternoon in their loft space while people shopped. Bottom line = AWESOME!!!
I shot a Bohemian Themed Party this weekend...Though I dislike 'filters', I felt that the vintage look was an absolute necessity. These are the couple images that I am able to share :)
In the last year...
I have had the absolute pleasure and honor to work with some amazing models.
They have not only made my images beautiful, but also given me the opportunity to learn and grow in this wonderful medium called "photography"...
One of my favorite things is to take a moment to revisit old shoots and find images that I might have skipped or had completely left behind in my run though.
These are some of those shots.
Back in the days when I was a teenager....
I knew a dude name RISK who had status and a pager :)
Congrats to Risk One on his Art Show Opening night...
Good to see familiar faces from the past... in the present.
Never been before... But after all of these years and only armed with a 35mm lens with no flash... I had quite an experience :D
This is one of the first set of pics that we shot on our shoot!
