This is a natural light portrait of friend and Actor Anthony Tether. He is an up and coming actor out of NYC. Recently starring in a Smithsonian Channel documentary. Keep an eye out for him!! The shit was taken on the upper east side of Manhattan. Was a great day and we had tons of fun. It is always great to work with like minded and artistic minds.
Dreaming wide awake...
This shoot was done in collaboration with my good friend and talented makeup artist and hairstylist Danielle! My house is filled with all sorts of hippy style and vintage clothing and furniture so it took nothing to put this hippy themed shoot together! The model did a great job and I am really happy with the result!

This photo was taken in an alley in downtown Exeter, CA. A beautiful little town nestled in the foothills of California. Lots of history there and the buildings show it. Model is Jasmine Wittman. Photo was taken on a Nikon D750 with a Sigma 85mm f1.4 at 1/1000 iso 400 f1.8 with a slight boost to the exposure compensation, about 1/3 stop. Brought back some of the highlights in photoshop and then slight dodging and burning on the face.
I have many photos of Jennifer, each one is better than the next. Her incredible clear view and the naturalness. The photo really concerns me. I tried to put the feeling into black and white. The result is very impressing. The naturalness ... it means a lot to me.
Thank you, Jennifer!

I composed this shot of Kristy to draw out her gorgeous facial structure, accented by the opposing colored lights on her hair and a softbox above her face. She is capable of so many looks, but the mystery of this head tilt allowing her hair to fall, the color combination and reflective leather is absolutely captivating.
This portrait of Jason was taken during an ongoing project I’m shooting called Amateur. Shot on black and white 35mm film, it's a documentary photo series about the world of non-professional sports in London.
Most of my favourite photography is unposed and naturally-lit. Jason was watching the game with a very serious look on his face but as I went to take a picture of him, he turned and flashed me this smile. Despite being kind of posed, something about his eyes and the sweat on his face gives the shot a texture that you can only get in the moment. It feels truthful to me.
"Oh Yeah!" (named by the model herself) was shot in our studio. Working with kids is always fun, they're relaxed and they don't try to be something they're not, you never know what you are going to get.
"Nubian Princess" is the second portrait in my on going Princess series of photographs. The series hopes to highlight the regal power, confidence, beauty, and strength of women. Specifically to counteract the pervasive one dimensional sexualized female image.
