This weekend's shoot..

Yesterday I shot a great editorial story with the photographer Sam Hessamian, and the always amazing Jamie Vandyke@Nous Models. Jamie is a Chamelion and was able to cry on cue to bring the raw intensity to the images that we were looking for. Incredible! More very soon...

Fall Beauty Stories!

Hi Everyone! I've been busy the last couple of weeks shooting some great new editorials (which I will preview soon :-), but I wanted share 2 of my latest beauty stories.

Story one is called "Les Cheveux En Flammes" and features Alli@Photogenics, and story 2 is in the newest issue of Nail Pro Mag, and features Michel and Djosefin@Photogenics. Beauty Photographer Dorit Thies shot both stories. Will Carillo@Celestine did the fabulous hair, and nails were done by the amazing Kimmie Kyees@Celestine. Enjoy!

Beach Shoot Preview

Yesterday I had the pleasure of working with  photographer Matthew Jordan Smith on an editorial shoot at El Matador beach in Malibu. We couldn't have asked for a better day... The weather here in Sunny California was absolutely perfect, with temperatures in the mid 70's and bright blue skies. Matthew wanted to do a story based on the classic movie "From Here To Eternity". Our models Hayley@Nous and Patrick@L.A.Models, were amazing, and really captured the spirit of the film. I wanted Hayley's makeup to reflect the time frame of the 1950's, yet still be modern. I used L'Oreal Telescopic Waterproof Eyeliner - Black on her eyes to bring out the retro winged eye, and kept the rest of her makeup clean. Here are a couple of previews...More to follow soon!

Beauty preview

Saturday I did a beauty shoot with photographer Dorit Thies and the always amazing Alli@Photogenics. I wanted to really bring out Alli's white skin and stunning red hair, so for her makeup I just moisturized her skin, and added a punch of strong color on her lips with OCC Cosmetics Lip Tar. I left the rest of her face bare for ultimate contrast. More to come soon!

My cat the super model!

Here is a preview from yesterday's shoot with Sam Hessamian , featuring Dallas@Ford, and my fabulous Truffle, making his on camera debut...

New work

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted in a couple of weeks, as I've been busy shooting lot's of fabulous new stuff; which I will blog about very soon!

In the meantime I wanted to share my new fashion story for the Belgian magazine Hush; shot by Melissa Rodwell.  I gave our model Alli@photgenics an old fashioned haunted look using MAC Pro Pigments in MAC A Rose Romance Collection Circa Plum Pigment, and MAC Pro Eye Pigment -- Grape (Boxed) 7.5g/.26oz to keep the focus on her gorgeous blue eyes, and amazing porcelain skin. Bernard Tamme@Cloutier did the beautiful hair.
