More images from my recent shoot with model Austin Carr (Mavrick Models) in Pasadena, earlier this month just before it started raining forever.

City Rain

I had the chance to take advantage of the unusual gloominess a couple of weeks ago with Austin Carr (Mavrick Models) in Pasadena, CA. Everyone has been complaining about the weather (myself included), but I simultaneously love it. The clouds create perfect outdoor lighting — the whole city is currently a big soft box.

Julian

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.

Above It All

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.)

HIGH RUIN

At the end of summer, I was hired by High Ruin to photograph a lifestyle campaign for the launch of their new home decor line, inspired by the Victorian Old West. Their amazingly lovely and inspiring owner, Audrey Richter, rented a gorgeous house in Joshua Tree and we spent an afternoon in the desert creating magic with our absolutely beautiful model, Keziah. Here are a couple of my favorite shots from the day. I'll share more soon, because I can't even explain how excited I am to finally be able to share these images with the world.

MARK WALLACE FOR NYLON GUYS

I've been working on archiving all of my published work from the last several years and came across this old photo I shot for Nylon Guys back in 2014. Mark Wallace is the founder and owner of Wallace Detroit Guitars, an amazing boutique guitar company that handcrafts their instruments from reclaimed wood from destroyed houses in Detroit. During out shoot, I got to tour the warehouse space where the reclaimed wood was kept prior to guitar production. It was an incredibly inspiring space deep in the heart of Detroit, and Mark was genuinely passionate about his city and his company. Their slogan, "The sound of the Motor City," says it all.

PRISCILLA FORD FOR LATINA MAGAZINE

Several months ago, I had the pleasure of photographing actress Priscilla Ford for her interview with Latina Magazine. You can read more about Priscilla's projects here.
