Last year, I worked with a good friend of mine, Toe-Knee "TK" Nguyen for an editorial shoot for a new magazine which didn't launch, so I held on these images until now. TK is nightlife promoter in Los Angeles and San Diego with his company, Victory Nightlife. We did the shoot at Thin/Onyx in downtown San Diego, which is one of the mainstays for TK's parties. We made use of the club in the daytime, which was definitely a change of pace from the craziness at night. A big thanks to Desiree for setting up and styling the shoot and Dominic for the assist.
Happy Easter everyone! I'm finally back from New York and wanted to post up an entry with the stylish duo that make up Street Etiquette, Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs. I met these two at Self Edge in New York and when they walked in, I knew I had to work with these fellas. They were recently featured in GQ as well as Urban Outfitters online, their style is amazing, they bring back style inspired by vintage photographs. We focused on the saddle shoe for our shoot, so after photographing them I definitely want to pick up a pair for myself. Definitely check out their website and enjoy the photos and a big thanks to Shannon Sturgis for photographing along with me.
Haha, this is not a gangster reference! But a reference to the True Blood happy hours put on by the Cornerstone and Fader team for the HBO series True Blood. These were setup to promote the after-parties for the Comic-Con International in San Diego. I was hired by Cornerstone to photograph the lucky party goers having a blast with all the True Blood swag. It definitely wasn't hard with all the free beer and TruBlood cocktails going around! The parties spanned three nights, with the first two nights at Prohibition and Rock Bottom then the last big blow out party at Bondi.
I lovingly referred to this guy as "cool glasses guy."

The decor was awesome.
Everyone who attended the Bondi got a TruBlood beverage, delicious I might add!
Did another great shoot for First for Women magazine a few weeks ago with an amazing woman named Donna Kozik. She was so much fun to work with and her story about using a vision board to help her lose 100 pounds is definitely inspiring. I brought along my styling crew, Rita and July, to help me and we got so many great photographs. Too bad they only run one photograph! But pick up a magazine today and also be sure to check out Donna's website!
