Beauty Story in Fall issue of Zink 2011

Z!NK magazine asked me to create a beauty story for their fall issue.  I drew lots of inspiration from sci-fi thrillers like Alien, Space Odyssey 2001, Sunshine, and Moon.  Yeah I am kind of a dork, but the end result is pretty awesome.  It is by far one of my favorite beauty stories that I have ever done.  I had a really amazing crew involved.  Also a big special thanks to Siren Studios for suppling me with lighting!

Editorial for Dime Magazine with Bonnie-Jill Laflin!

This summer I visited Dime Magazine in New York to talk about working with them.  Immediately they thought that my style would be perfect to shoot Bonnie-Jill Laflin, the NBA's first and only female scout.  She works for the Los Angeles Lakers and has 5 championship rings to prove it!  Special thanks to Lyndzi Trang on styling and Julia Papworth on hair and makeup.

Cover of the LA Weekly featuring The Game!

The LA Weekly recently hired me to shoot The Game for their most recent cover story.  It was a really awesome shoot!  The concept was to make the girls look like trophies so I had them body painted in gold.   I put together a glam squad consisting of Dominic Elias on body paint and Noogie on hair.  The Game came into the studio; al 6'4" of him.  And I thought I was tall.  After getting him out of wardrobe i asked him how he would like me to address him and he replied, "Call me Megatron."  So Megatron and I created some really timeless imagery.
