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.

Carlotta Champagne – Touch Down

It was Carlotta Champagne who reminded me a few weeks ago that I was injured when I did the photoshoot that resulted in this beautiful photo with her.

“You threw your back out in the cave. Remember?”

Oh yeah. I forgot about that. It wasn’t long after making this photo of her lovely curved torso, that the pain got so bad that I could barely walk.

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 – Resilience Ascending

I photographed the lovely and emotive UK-based Ivory Flame in Los Angeles in late 2016. It was my first time collaborating with Ivory and I can describe our wonderful creating simply as, just playing in the light. In this photograph, she conveys her natural state of elegance, optimism and strength, with a nod to Old Hollywood beauty.

Meluxine – Dress Handfuls

    Meluxine – Dress Handfuls “Aw, we lost the sun,” Meluxine said, as she noticed the gorgeous shafts of sunlight that until very recently had been beautifully falling on her through the window, had faded away. She was wearing a sparkly gold and black striped dress by Mango and when the sun hit it, it …

Meluxine – Looking Inside

  Meluxine – Looking Inside You know when you’re having one of those days when everything you touch turns to gold? They don’t happen often, but when they do, the feeling is extraordinary. Meluxine and I were definitely having one of those days the first time we ever shot together. Even the, this probably won’t …
