Quick outtake from today's shoot

Joe from Italy via South Africa @ Ford.

This was just a quick light test before the actual shoot no makeup or anything... This Kid is something else, he conffessed he feels embarassed saying he's a model, but right away he got to it. Even complimented my work and direction. This shoot turned out some amazing images, will be starting their lab work tonight

the september issue of vogue+ 

Tomorrows shoot

Just got this today, will test it out on the full setup in the morning.  The general look I'll be going for will be continuous mixed with window light ( provided that something gets through all that fog). The setup will be something along the lines of digitals that agencies normally take in their voice. With a little kick.. Going to try to keep the lighting as simple as I can, I Want the focus to be entirely on the model and the various phases that I'm going to put him through. *fingers crossed*

will post the entire setup in the morning

Itialian Fucking Vogue!!!!1

Steven Meisel you f*cking rock!!!!!

Steven Meisel is reuniting with all his supermodel favorites of late. First Kristen McMenamy’s epic VI cover last month and now the return of the always stunning Linda Evangelista for Vogue Italia. Meisel shoots the eternally captivating model in high contrast black and white in a story that nods to the classic images of Horst P. Horst and Richard Avedon.

My home, the home of super models

Jamaica has consistently provided the fashion world with some of its most stunning faces to date. Not to mention models who broke ground. Nadine Willis was the first black woman to be the poster child for Gucci:

my one asian obsession

my one greatest loves is film making in asia.. and i don't mean your shitty run off the mill kong fu crap.. sets are built and lit so beautifully and if animation is ever present , it's done soo simply and they all seem to have a hint of grace around everything

a possible series?

been going through my pool of work and I've seem to developed a collection of shots based in the woods..

got to love san francisco

after looking at dead rats dressed in costumes and lion heads going for $5000, headed over to a scifi book store.. nice lil hairless kitty

L'appareil a sous

my favorite photographer ( that's alive today)

I could look at her work all day...

1 of my images is now in the mainstream!!!!

hahaha this is the funniest thing ever... so far from my normal line of work.. I went to Alamo Square with my neighbor a couple weeks ago and I had my camera with me, I just so happened to snap a picture of her golden retriever Oliver in front of the famous row of houses.. just so happened that the shot ended up in the newsletter for the company she works for ( a famous hotel chain based here that has other branches all over the US) yay!

there's no turning back

breakfast at tiffany's

" nothing bad ever happens at tiffany's"
saw this little film today... what charm! I wish everyday life could have such moments of charm.

Moon River, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
wherever you're going I'm going your way.
Two drifters off to see the world.
There's such a lot of world to see.
We're after the same rainbow's end--
waiting 'round the bend,
my huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.
