City Rain
Austin-5.jpg

I had the chance to take advantage of the rare rainy weather a couple of weeks ago with Austin Carr (Mavrick Models) in Pasadena, Calif. Everyone has been complaining about the weather, but I love it. Rainclouds create perfectly diffused light — the entire city is currently a 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.

Los Angeles Skyline

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 in Highland Park, and stunning lofts with skyline views in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.

IN THE STUDIO WITH COURTNEY TAYLOR BURNESS

A couple of my favorite images from my shoot a couple weeks back with actress Courtney Taylor Burness. Makeup by Stephanie Lopez.

The Rossi Hotel

Last week, I had the pleasure of being hired to photograph the newly renovated suites and grounds of The Rossi Hotel in Palm Springs, California. The hotel -- a boutique resort tucked away on a quiet street just a few blocks from the resort town's bustling downtown area -- was a gorgeous, relaxing paradise. Here are a few of my favorite images from my shoot.

MERCEDES-BENZ DRIVE CAMPAIGN

I was excited to learn that some of the lifestyle images I photographed for the renowned Mercedes-Benz DRIVE Technician Training program have gone live on their website. You can view more about the program and company at the Mercedes-Benz DRIVE website.
