A couple of months ago, I was commissioned by Los Angeles model/actor Julian Zambrano to photograph an important transformation — the first cutting of his long, beloved hair in years. We decided to celebrate the moment in an homage to Patrick Demarchelier’s beautiful photographs of Karlie Kloss’s famous haircut.

I've been photographing a lot of living spaces lately -- and absolutely loving it! The last two weeks have taken me to sprawling mansions in Beverly Hills, historic Craftsman gems tucked away in the lush Northeast landscapes of Highland Park, to stunning lofts with views of the city skyline in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.
It's always a pleasure working with Avi Ross Group on their stunning home renovation projects. This beautiful historic Craftsman gem, tucked away in the Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park, is finally finished and up for sale. Every place they sell comes with the beautiful furniture that was hand-chosen for the space. They're not simply selling a house -- they're selling a home. You can check out their beautiful, perfectly designed and hand-renovated properties at their website.

As a commercial photographer in Los Angeles, the reality of a contemporary society dominated by social media and a culture of cool is prevalent in my work and life in the city. "Somewhere Outside of Time" is a new, ongoing personal photo series exploring and documenting the Mojave Desert -- a region that seems to exist outside of time, largely untouched by contemporary society, existing only on its own terms.
I'm currently in Joshua Tree, California, working on a new photo series. I stopped for coffee early this morning and was excited to learn that one of my images from my recent shoot with model Ariel Thompson is up on Vogue Italia's PhotoVogue. (Makeup by Stephanie Lopez.)

I wrote back in February about my recent shoot for The Rossi Palm Springs, a boutique hotel in the heart of a desert oasis. It's so wonderful to see my photos gracing their beautiful website. If you're ever looking for an amazing place to escape from the world into a weekend (or week!) of luxury, I cannot recommend a better place to do it than The Rossi.
