Feeling Christmas

So, this year is the first year I am spending Christmas completely solo. 35 Christmases with family thus far and now I am 2,600 miles away from my parents, with no money in the travel budget, so a quick hello on Skype will have to do. I haven’t been a fan of Christmas since I was a kid. It has felt like such a commercial endeavor for so long that it lost it’s luster. But, with no family of my own to speak of out here in Las Vegas, I had... Read More

Va… Va… Victoria

This past week I had a shoot with Victoria Hart. She is formerly from the UK and has recently relocated to Las Vegas. Victoria, as you may remember, was an overnight sensation a few years back when she sang for the cast of Ocean’s Thirteen at the Cannes Film Festival. Well, now she’s here and she’s all mine to make photos with. I win again… Anyway, I thought I would post some of the photos from our shoot. It was a simple shoot…... Read More

An oldie with Sam, Jessie and Francis

Right around this time last year was incredibly hard for me. I was still going through the difficulties of adjusting to life after my job ending, trying to make a splash as a photographer, my marriage had recently ended and I was getting ready to move across the country from NYC to Las Vegas. Needless to say, August and September of 2009 are a bit of a blur… I was recently reminded on Facebook that the team I shot with for a little trade shoot... Read More

This is your brain on Meagan

There is a girl here in Las Vegas… her name is Meagan Taechon. She’s a model. We’ve talked for quite a while about shooting and were finally able to get together on Saturday. I am very happy she came to the studio. I am also really pleased that Conny Wissenback was able to play makeup/hair for me as well. She is one of the most talented makeup artists I have had the pleasure of working with. You don’t need to look any further... Read More

Hipstamatic and me…

So I downloaded the Hipstamatic app for my iPhone. I love it to death. In fact, I love it so much I am un-jailbreaking my iPhone just so I can buy the add-on packs. If you have an iPhone, you should buy it. Also, if you want to print the photos, go to the settings and make sure you select the hi-res option… gives you more to play with once it’s out of the camera(phone). ... Read More

Photo Bang Bang and Frankenhand

I didn’t realize how long it had been since I posted an entry… so, I have been working on getting Photo Bang Bang off the ground, as well as recovering from hand surgery. Three weeks ago to the day, I had a tumor removed from my right hand. It was a lipoma, so it was benign… I was happy to hear that news. The recovery has been a fairly steady process. It was tough to do much of anything for the first week and a half. I am right handed…... Read More

Wilkommen a Photo Bang Bang

I am opening up a studio in the Arts District in Las Vegas with my partner in crime and Sexy Photo Trip co-host, Matt Terhune and our good friend Curtis Joe Walker. It is at 224 Imperial Ave at the corner of 3rd St in downtown Las Vegas. The space doubles as a gallery for First Fridays out here. We are aiming to have our first, “First Friday” on June 4th. Should be a blast and if you are in the area, make yourself known to us. Do... Read More

Emma Emma Bo Bemma

Emma came by today… she’s a local model who needed a new headshot for her agency. I did the headshot she wanted… then as I was moving stuff around I noticed a really cool little pocket of light hitting the wall from the window up near the ceiling, so I threw on a corset and neck corset and positioned her for action (that sounds way more awesome than it is). I think I found my Julianne Moore… ... Read More

Girls, Corsets and Horses

On Thursday I had the opportunity to shoot at some horse stables in Boulder City, NV. The shoot was setup by Lisa Lorenz. Lisa is a Corset designer based in the Las Vegas area. She is awesome… I like her. I really had no idea what to expect, since I have never really been to a commercial horse stable before… all of the tenants lease space there to keep their horses. I didn’t grow up around horses and had no concept of what it would... Read More

Bell… a little trip to Philly

I realize it’s been a while and I apologize to the tens of people who have ever read this thing. Anyway, been starting to pick up the camera again. Took a little time off to get things settled, but now I am back! SO! I had an opportunity to work with a fantastic model based out of Philly. Her name is Bell (her real name will remain a super duper secret). Bell is a beautiful 32 year old woman. We had a really good exchange over email prior to... Read More
