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

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

Going way back…

So, my computer took a big Cleveland steamer on me last week so I had to build a new workstation. I am all suited up with a Core i7-based machine now and it screams, so I guess after all that stress it wasn’t so bad in the end as I am happy with the computer I am “stuck” with now. As I have been getting things organized with the new machine, I took some time to get reacquainted with some of my oldest work, going through a bunch of... Read More

Another date with Shai…

Looks like I am going to have to start shooting with other women soon or my blog is going to look like a lunatic’s journal in pursuit of a single woman… but, here goes. Shai came up last weekend to Vegas to shoot after having such a wonderful time with me in LA… what can I say? I am pretty awesome to be around. My friend Cory was also in town from NYC and Cory is a really talented makeup artist so the weekend was all set to take... Read More

Shai

Last weekend I had an opportunity to go to LA to shoot with a really great person and model. Her name is Shai. There are certain models you just have a feeling about and through my interactions with her online, I thought we had the potential to make some really great images. So, sight unseen… I decided to make the trip out to LA to spend an evening shooting with her. It turned out to be very much worth the effort. After searching for accommodations... Read More

It’s easy to forget…

Nice subject, right? I am not going to subject you to a long spiel about life and blah blah blah… it was just a subject line that made sense to me when I was thinking about how to describe my latest shoot that I just had to write about. About a month-and-a-half ago, I was contacted by a model on Model Mayhem by the name of Engel Schrei (that’s her model name of course, her real name is Natalie). Engel is a bit of a gypsy, wandering around... Read More

Sharon TK, Goksun and my Jessie

So… I know it’s been a while. I have been dealing with a lot of things that have kept me from mustering the concentration to put a blog post together. But, here it is… Jessie Callan came up from Philly for a weekend in the big city with her mom on Friday, and we managed to work in a shoot while she was here. I am lucky I get to work with really talented people and Jessie is a super talented and creative makeup artist… look... Read More
