Cecilia & Ian’s Wedding

Cobian Kids Sandals Catalog

This was one of my favorite shoots. Kids are always a challenge, however, this shoot was kind of special because we used my little brother Trevor and his little girlfriend for the catalog. They kids ended up being great models, and we had an amazing stylist for the shoot. Aimee Bradley from Bruxley Style was a big help and we nailed the concept. These images Rock!

T.B. Penick and Sons Inc. Solar Farm

One of the largest builders T.B. Penick and Sons sent me out to Blythe, CA. The mission to photograph T.B. Penick’s new Solar Farm was no easy task. We hit a major sand storm on the way, then the maintenance guy with the keys was sick so we had to jump the 9 foot fence with barbed wire just to get the shot. It all worked out in the end and we nailed some amazing images.

Do Something NOW!

Fortunate to work and contribute my time to helping the non-profit Do Something NOW, I was able to put together a short video of the images and videos they brought back from their recent trip to South Africa. Do Something Now donated over 100 bikes to small villages to help their students get to and from class everyday. This not only betters the students quailty of life, but it also betters their chances of success and education attainment.

Congrats Kris!

I have been working with the ever so talented Kristen Saia on her portfolio, and we really made some beautiful images in the short time we have worked together. I am very fortunate to have built such a strong working relationship with her and I think we have leaped a few obstacles along the ride and that has instilled great character in us. Kris has landed a fabulous job doing hair and make-up in LA where she is continuing to follow her dreams, I can not be more stoked for her. You can do it Kris! Here are a selected few of the images from our last shoot, enjoy! Big Ups to our models for trusting us and helping us follow our dreams!
