SIMPLETHINGS

A few months ago, I was hired by Simplethings, a local independent restaurant chain. Here are a few of my favorite shots from my day spent photographing each of their three locations around Los Angeles.

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.

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.

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.
