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!

A Woman in Kansas Who Reads Vogue
Many photographers feel their client is the subject. My client is a woman in Kansas who reads Vogue. I’m trying to intrigue, stimulate, feed her. My responsibility is to the reader. The severe portrait that is not the greatest joy in the world to the subject may be enormously interesting to the reader.

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.
