Cover story for Shape Magazine with Thanh Mai

I had the utmost pleasure of shooting Thanh Mai, a famous Vietnamese actress, for the cover story in Shape magazine.  We shot at an old Vietnamese temple in District 10.  There was a serene calmness about the location that I think is reflected in the imagery.  Thanh was an amazing subject and incredibly nice to work with!

I'm an illustration!

For my contributor photo in Dep Magazine they had someone create an illustration of my head.  I love being a cartoon!

Beauty story for Cosmopolitan Magazine

Here is another beauty story that I shot for Cosmopolitan Magazine.  It was based upon the many nail images that I have created over the years.


A feature article on myself for RSVP magazine in Vietnam

With all of the work that I have been doing overseas, I was asked by a local magazine called RSVP for an interview along with some recent examples of my work.  They are an art, fashion, pop culture magazine that is widely known around Vietnam.  I was more than happy to talk about my work, my background, and all of the things I love about working in Vietnam.

Estella Warren for King Baby

I had the esteemed pleasure to work with super model Estella Warren on the new Campaign for jewelry company King Baby.  She was extremely nice to work with and was a top notch pro.  I really enjoyed our cooking conversations!  King Baby is one of my favorite clients to work with.  They always deliver on the goods and are truly great to work with.  I always enjoy our annual photo shoots.

Fashion story for Cosmopolitan Magazine

My first job in Vietnam was for Cosmopolitan Magazine.  The magazine arranged for us to shoot at a lot of different and unique locations exclusive to Saigon.  We shot at the Hyatt in District 1, the new pedestrian bridge by the recently developed river front, and the rooftop of the ultra exclusive Chill bar.  The 8-page story ran in the February issue so I wanted to create a warm, fuzzy kind of aesthetic with the lighting as we follow the couple around the city on their date.

...and here are some behind the scenes photos.

Beauty for Runway Magazine

This was a recent beauty story for Runway Magazine.  I wanted an opportunity to play with color so I used a variety of gels to create a unique spectrum.  I worked closely with makeup artist Ivette Alison to make sure that the makeup would compliment the art direction.  Veronica Nunez created some unique hair styles to round out the trio.  Thanks to No Ties Model Management for connecting me with the astoundingly talented Jessica Cook who has an amazing range of looks.
