Luna at the Arsenic House

Luna at the Arsenic House

A LONG TIME COMING

A good friend of mine, the talented singer, music producer, and model Luna, finally made it out to LA recently.   We've been talking about working together since our Florida days many years ago but never made it happen for one reason or another.  So on her first trip to LA, we certainly had to capitalize on the real estate...

My good friends over at Arsenic let us use their house / HQ for the shoot, and the rest was history.

And the moral of the story... good things come to those who eat their veggies.  Enjoy the rest of the shoot below!

The Return of the Reluctant Muse

Although I will admit, after falling in love with the results from our first shoot, it was much easier to talk Anninka into shooting again.  And of course, once again, I shot some of my favorite pictures to date.  

She's quickly becoming a fan favorite among my followers on Instagram as well, and it's easy to see why.  Our collaborations give off such a fresh Los Angeles vibe, it's always a welcome contrast to my more NYC-like street sets.

Brianna On Film

This week model Brianna Michaela and I had some fun exploring the Downtown LA Rooftops in her first ever shoot on film.  I'm really starting to enjoy introducing film shoots to those who are unfamiliar with it.  The entire process of the shoot becomes much more freeing and relaxing.  Instead of constantly worrying about how they look in camera and wanting to see previews, the models are just able to relax and be themselves, which makes it that much easier for me to really capture their true, natural beauty, and not the overproduced, oversexualized glamour prevalent in the industry today.

African Fashion

African Fashion

In a collaboration with Fashion Designer Kabeh Ojo and Makeup Artist Vanessa Rene, today I shot four models in hand-made garments from fabrics sent directly from Africa.  It just so happens that the offices behind my production headquarters for According to Him & Her give off a heavy island / African vibe.  The perfect location for this shoot.
