For Colored Girls

The beautiful, talented, and beautifully talented Renae is a painter and model in North Hollywood, so it was only fitting that our collaboration feature paint.  I've been wanting to try a concept like this for quite some time, and Renae turned out to be the perfect canvas.

This photo won me /r/analog's Photographer of the Week, so I already knew we were off to a good start!

There will certainly be more to come between Renae and I, stay tuned for 2016...

Took a walk around old North Hollywood today, just been itching to shoot lately.  I've always really like the old signage around this area, and thought a little Ektar could capture well...

Taking the Long Way

On the way back from Vegas I decided to take my time and explore a bit of the scenery with what was quickly becoming my favorite color film stock, Ektar 100.  In was on this drive that I discovered what I hope to one day turn into a type of signature shot of mine, the Portrait Landscape.

Something about leaving so much room for the sky in a landscape photo really puts our existence here into perspective.  We all like to think we're larger than life, but just look up at the sky next time you need a reminder of exactly what life is.  The effect is humbling to say the least.  And don't you just love that natural blue gradient?  Ektar is an incredible film.

This was a peaceful drive, a nice way to unwind from the crazy birthday weekend at Life is Beautiful and prime myself for getting back into the hustle when I got home.  The year's winding down, and 2015 is starting to look particularly promising...

Damn I love that Ektar blue.

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.
