Meluxine – Contemplate Your Fate

I was catching up with Meluxine the other day. And we both agreed that this shoot, our first time ever collaborating together, still remains one of our favorite shoots either of us have been a part of. I think we had been reached a place in our respective work that needed a refresh somehow. Going back to remembering why we loved to do this kind of thing in the first place.

Jessamyne Rose – What Was

  Jessamyne Rose – What Was~ There was so much beauty to be found on the island of Kauai. And I don’t simply mean the lovely Jessamyne Rose. Everywhere you turned, breathtaking nature. And even the more desolate areas, like a beach I photographed her on, with bare tree roots and stumps, exposed by ocean …

Ivory Flame – Green with Ivory

  Ivory Flame – Green with Ivory~ Excitedly, “Oooh! What do you have?” That’s usually one of the first questions out of my mouth when I walk up to my model collaborator at the beginning of any shoot. It’s one of those moments of discovery that starts to put the final pieces in place of …

Jessamyne – A Million Miles Away

  Jessamyne – A Million Miles Away “What?!” “I said, that’s good! Lean forward like that again!” “What?!” I held my index finger up to Jessamyne in the international gesture of, “Hold on a sec.” You see, she was outside on the deck of our Hawaiian oceanfront villa and I was inside, photographing her through …

Anne Duffy – Crown of Shadows

  Anne Duffy – Crown of Shadows Anne has one of the most beautiful faces I have ever come to know. I’ve felt that way since before I actually got to work with her years ago. Her portfolio is full of some of the most striking images I’ve ever seen. All week we’d been talking …

Photo Daily: Morgan Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris

  Packing light isn’t really an option when you’re heading to Paris to photograph beautiful couture. We arrived with six suitcases full of fashion. An occupational hazard. But the locations are inspiring and that’s why you lug a crazy amount of clothing and camera gear with you. There’s nothing like shooting in Paris. We made …

Photo Daily: Anoush Seeing You

  My lovely model friend Anoush is celebrating her birthday this week, and that’s reason enough to return to a shoot I did with her last year, and although our shoot was for a b&w short film, I did make some color images as well! Never before seen until now. And the wonderful thing about …

Photo Daily: Blue Rachael

  Sometimes a wonderful photograph comes together in an instant. I made this Blue Rachael photo on the roof of my studio just as we were getting ready to leave for the airport. We had a half an hour before we were leaving when Rachael suddenly appeared in a lovely dress and asked if we could …

Photo Daily: Melissa Magenta Glass

  “We’ll never use these. Do you want them?” That’s the reason I have many things around my studio that are a little odd. Some are wedding gifts that didn’t quite make the cut. And my friends know I’ll probably figure out some interesting way to use them in my photography. And so, I always answer …

Photo Daily: Carlotta Reaching in the Dark

  It’s fun to play with time when creating photography. This photograph of Carlotta Champagne I made is full of time playfulness. She and I were both looking to create something a little out of the ordinary. I first saw Fritz Lang’s 1927 film, Metropolis, in my pre-teen years. It was a profound visual experience that greatly …
