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 …

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 …

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: Mia DeRosa Midnight Step

  Mia DeRosa is a lovely model who came to me last year through another model friend of mine, Carlotta Champagne. Mia was relatively new to modeling when I photographed her, yet I found her wonderfully easy to collaborate with. One evening during her visit, we had dinner at one of my favorite sushi restaurants …

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 …

Photo Daily: Vanessa Montreal

Montreal is a lovely city. It’s as close to Europe as you can get without crossing the Atlantic Ocean. In fact, the reason I was there was because we were using Montreal as a stand-in for Paris while shooting a TV commercial for Tresemme. Vanessa was one of the beautiful models on hand for the …
