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

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

Papa John

When I used to live in Long Island City, there was a homeless man who lived in his car directly outside my apartment. He was 73 years old at the time and lived in the neighborhood all his life. He went by the name “Papa John.” John spent his days and evenings drinking to pass the time. If you walked by him on the street he would most likely wave, smile and say hello. He was a really kind person and aside from talking too much and... Read More

Moving on…

So… it has been a while since I have added a blog entry. It has taken me some time to collect my thoughts as it has been a rather eventful summer. I managed to do a lot of shooting this summer, not only on a personal level but also shooting episodes of Sexy Photo Trip. July came and saw the beginning of a lot of changes in my life. My long relationship has come to an end and made me take a step back and re-evaluate things in my life. I have... Read More

Atlantic City Hotel Room Sexy Time

I went to Atlantic City last week with my good friends Matt and Emily of twentyonefifteen photography. We gambled, lost and then much later in the evening went up to the hotel room and I decided to set up a light and play around a bit. I wanted to do something that was somewhat dramatic and I only wanted to use one light. I threw a 580EX into a Wescott Softbox and here are the results. It’s a little different than what you may be used to seeing... Read More

A girl and her dog

Another photo shot in 2006, this one is of fashionista Alyssa Key of Love Brigade. Alyssa is gorgeous, sexy and cool as shit to boot. Before the shoot started, she asked if it was okay that she bring her small dog with her. I love dogs so it wasn’t a problem at all. Johnny was running around us in circles the entire shoot. He is adorable. I have never been a fan of little dogs, but he is definitely an exception. Here is a photo of Alyssa and... Read More
