Behind the scenes of the Pool Party shoot

Here are some behind the scene images from my shoot that I did with fame German photographer, Sylvie Blum in her backyard in Hollywood with 4 great models, Vel, Stacy, Style and James.  This was a great shoot and I am honored that Sylvie allowed me to work with her in her backyard.  If you don't know who Sylvie is, you will very soon.  Her work is fantastic and she has big projects ahead of her so keep your eyes and ears open.  Her home is amazing and is a photographer's paradise.  It was a fun and productive day and we had a great team.  Now you can get a glimpse at what goes on at one of our shoots.

Behind the scenes of the 360 magazine shoot

Here are a few behind the scene shots with my little point and shoot camera, of my 360 magazine photoshoot this past weekend, with stylist and fashion editor Marc Littlejohn.  It turned out to be a great shoot, a long day but quite enjoyable with a great team and 3 great models; Kendall, Korrina, and male model Aquino, along with hairstylist extraordinaire, Nate, aka Tsunami, who came in second place on the Oxygen show "Hair Battle Spectacular".  





































Southern California photographer, Lucinda Wedge allowed us to use her studio to prep for our shoot and she was extremely helpful with finding a great location for the shoot.  She's the best!

Birthday shout to Tosh!

Today is the celebration of Tosh Yanez, who is signed with Wilhelmina, here in Los Angeles.  I worked with Tosh for an editorial spread for Mainstream Erotica magazine in 2009 and here are a few images from that shoot.  These images were shot in the magazine's editor's backyard in Culver City.  Tosh was a really great model to work with, very cool and super professional and we actually plan on shooting again really soon.  I can't wait.  He is also a stylist.  Hope you have a great day, Tosh!!!
