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.
Los Angeles, 2018.
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.)

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.

In February 2014, I rented my first private studio -- a gorgeous daylight studio with cement floors and floor-to-ceiling windows across one wall in a massive industrial warehouse turned studio and exhibition space. I wanted to test out the new space as well as some different lighting techniques, and was excited to when talented model Megan Mockensturm agreed to be my guinea pig. The resulting image ended up being selected by Vogue Italia's editorial staff for PhotoVogue that April.
