Joshua Tree Portraits: Part 2

By | Portraits | No Comments

After shooting with Mirelle for a little bit in the wee hours of the morning, we went back to the AirBNB to cool off and goof around taking some chill photos in the house. The place had so much character that we had to put it to good use for some casual / silly shots. After cooling off a little and hydrating we went back out into the desert to shoot a little more.

Stay tuned for even more tomorrow. 🙂

Joshua Tree Portraits: Part 1

By | Portraits | No Comments

A few weeks ago I was in California for a few days and had the privilege of photographing Mirelle for a day. We had a blast, ate some delicious pizza, and ended up with so much portrait magic that I’m going to split it up into a multi-part blog post so as not to overwhelm. Hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed creating them. More to come tomorrow!

Death Valley & Joshua Tree National Park (Sneak Peek)

By | Editorial, Portraits | No Comments

I just got back a few days ago from a really cool trip with a few shoots in California, starting in Los Angeles, then driving up to Death Valley and then swinging back around to Joshua Tree National Park. I shot primarily film, so it’s going to be a couple of weeks before I get those shots back, but I figured I would post a little bit of a teaser in the meantime.

As we got closer to Death Valley, there was this cool Catholic Church, St. John’s the Baptist, with some mountains as a backdrop and a few palm trees to keep it company. How could I not stop for a picture? Little did I know the little road I turned off to get the shot was actually a tiny airport. No doubt somebody was watching me and wondering why this idiot was driving a Ford Fusion onto a runway – to my credit there were no signs and once I realized it I parked off the side of the runway before plopping down to get the shot. Had to hold my reflector up in front of me to shade the lens since I didn’t want a lens-flared look.

The main objective that evening was to get a great sunset panoramic for my running series which can be seen in the Fine-Art Panoramic Landscape Photographs section of my website. While waiting for the light to be where I wanted it, I met Stuart from Scotland who was taking an epic road-trip all over the USA with his dad and brother. Here he is checking out the landscape at Zabriskie Point in Death Valley, California… then a photograph of me behind-the-scenes getting setup for my panoramic sunset image.

What do you do when you’re in a part of the USA with some of the darkest sky you can find? Well you go out and shoot some astrophotographs (nightscapes) of course! I didn’t really pack my gear with the intention of doing this, so there was only one spot that I thought worked well, not to mention it’s sort of hard to find more good spots in pitch black darkness!

Back to Joshua Tree for a little bridal session action! Didn’t shoot any of this on digital but my assistant managed to capture a BTS shot on their phone. Can’t wait to get the film back!!

If you’ve never been, Joshua Tree National Park is a pretty cool place. And there are suuuuper-cool Airbnb options if you want to stay somewhere with lots of style and character. (I also took some film shots of the interior of the place we stayed… didn’t do any exterior though.)

Alright, last image for this post… Does Mirelle look amazing in this red dress out in Joshua Tree, or what? We had so much fun, and there was this really nice breeze the whole time so it wasn’t even really that hot, considering it’s a desert.

Stay tuned for more in the weeks to come!

New York City Ballerina Portrait : Camila

By | Portraits | 2 Comments

A while back I had the pleasure of working with this very talented young ballerina in New York City, and I’m happy to finally be able to share them with you here. The three images above were inspired by Alice in Wonderland, and were made with the intention of being displayed as a triptych, as above. Gotta love it when the final image comes out like what you planned in your head.:)

Environmental Portrait : MMG Computers

By | Portraits | No Comments

I’m in the planning stages of a collaborative personal project with friend and fellow photographer, David Teran. Kicking off a series of proof-of-concept shoots, today we photographed Michael and Marlon Gutierrez of MMG Computers in San Antonio, TX.

They were great sports, and were even kind enough to clean up the place beforehand. Oh, wait… nope. But that’s okay, because any techie knows a messy workplace is a productive workplace!
