Street Fashion Shoot at the Flat Iron District

While working this shoot, a police officer stood nearby, watching the model; watching me. I thought he was going to ask for paperwork although I knew it was fine. He instead asked about the equipment I was using since he was an amateur photographer. I explained the light setup and what kind of look we were going for. He nodded and walked away.

Worship — Vintage Style Fine Art Print

I always set out to introduce an element of fashion into my artwork. With this one, we went with the stockings the model brought into the session. The original version of this photo began with the model placing the mask on her face with a provocative photo balancing out the composition. As we were finishing up, she said, “How about this?” She placed the mask where it is now then I pressed the shutter button. Click.

This print is now on sale for $25 at this LINK.

The Loneliest Look of the Night Lasted a Few Seconds

She was dancing above the crowd then she slunk down, bracing herself against the wall and heels. It was just a few seconds but it was the loneliest looking moment of the night. It was as if the music had stopped in this part of the room.

The Mundane details of a life

Did you see American Beauty? Remember when that one character watched the video of the plastic bag swirling in the wind? That scene touched me. My mom brought me up to appreciate the simple things in life and it’s a philosophy that has bled into my own work. Whenever I’m on a shoot, I look for the small details of someone’s life, which when put together with personality, expresses the essence of human being’s existence.

So here’s my life, in photos below. The life I share with my fiance. It’s not that exciting but it’s beautiful and there are little things that we enjoy together.

Mask Made From Rope

Before we did her hair and wrapped rope around her face, we enjoyed a dinner of shrimp mixed in with the quinoa. We drank red wine and listened to Nitzer Ebb, Jazz and Blues. My fiance threaded her hair into braids then the rope. The look was inspired by Romans. The rope was inspired by Manila.

Common at ShowCase — Fashion Week

I took some red carpet photos for UrbanDaddy but those were hardly interesting. I liked this one better. Says more.

Seattle & L.A.: Fashion Shoots

Here are some photos from a shoot I did of several models in Seattle and L.A.. It was all about hair so my goal was to ensure the photos exhibited the creative works of talented stylists, make up artists and wardrobe. The places we shot in were ridiculously inspirational. I would have liked to have had more time with each to explore the hotels and loft spaces we shot in but my time was limited to about 5 minutes per model.

For this post, I mostly went with photos that showed a little more than hair. There was a talented group of people who put their hard work into the look of these models. My job was fairly simple. Lighting scheme, location and mood.
