I found myself in Phoenix Az, tagging along on photographer, Briana Rambo's project. We drove almost to Flagstaff, had car troubles and had some struggles with time management. But, in the end we managed to get the images we were looking for.

Alone tonight is a short vignette depicting a woman struggling with being left by her lover. Shot with the Panasonic G85, love this camera. The low light is noticibly better than the GH4 in my personal opinion.

Ameila (Jeane Monroe) and I drove out of town a ways to find an old abandoned airfield. I'm still testing my Panasonic G85, but at this point I'm very impressed with performance of the camera.
Old Pueblo Harley-Davidson knows how to throw a shindig! I work for a partner location so I have the privilege of shooting their events as they occur, This was the largest turn out I have seen or even heard about for Old Pueblo's car shows. I'm really happy to see the word is starting to spread!
These photos were submitted to Surreal Beauty Magazine. 2 days later we were notified that we made the cut and would have a 5 page feature. If you're interested in a hard copy, head on over to Surreal Beauty's website and purchase the "Raiment" issue
Jessie and I met up in my temporarily converted living room to shoot some fun "infinite black" background photos. Indie Soleil took them for their haunted October 2016th edition and we were quite pleased to be featured. This was my first time in print.
Hillary and I haven't seen each other in a while. We finally managed to get enough time set aside to meet for coffee and plan some work for the future. I took this as a good opportunity to give a new (to me) vlog format a shot. I don't like being in front of the camera so my vlogs likely won't feature me much at all.
I drove to phoenix to meet with a new friend, Taryn. We had a fun idea to mesh her belly dancing with something a little off beat with regard to her usual genre of music to dance to. Led Zeppelin was the chosen band and the rest is what you see here!
Sara Mcdonald, what a fun person to work with. I drove to Phoenix from Tucson to meet her at an abandoned plane yard. We had never met before this so I applaud her bravery to come with me to such a place to create this piece. This location is truly inspiring. I look forward to returning again someday for another shoot.
Kiersten (makeup artist and hair stylist) and I met up with Sara at her tiny downtown home to shoot a fun little boudoir set. She hadn't modeled for a while but got right into it like a true professional.
Hillary is something of a regular fixture around here. When you have friends as goofy as you with similar interests, it's hard not to work with them often. Anyway, we went to Bisbee to shoot some new designs from Theo Doro Fairyland clothing. It rained on us, so we had to cut the shoot short, but we did manage to get some fun stuff that looked rather vintagey. Is that a word? Vintagey. Well it is now!
My house converts to a studio once again, much to the chagrin of my relatives. Kiersten popped by to do makeup for these cool head shot ideas I had and I think they turned out really nicely. I got a little jealous of Coreys photos in the end and wish I had taken the time to do a self portrait in a similar fashion.
This is a great example of what my shoots tend to become. Amelia and I got together with the idea that we would shoot some headshots for her portfolio. Of course we couldn't let that be the end of our time together. She grabbed some other clothing from her car and I pulled t shirt from my dryer to add to the options we had to work with. All in all a very fun afternoon which rendered some really great images.
I had a need for a film reel, so this is what I knocked together. It would appear that I focused almost solely on fashion films in 2016. I will be branching out in the new year I think.
Ameila (ever ready to work on projects) traveled to bisbee with me for this little video project. It turned out that there weren't many people in town that day so we had free run of the streets to pretty much shoot however we pleased.
