After getting back to California in mid-September from another east coast summer’s worth of work teaching photography, I am finally getting the chance to get things updated. It has been a while since I last posted but I have been busy working on a lot of new projects. From shooting studio and lifestyle work for… Read more »

Elina Fedorova launched her fitness app/website and I happened to be on board for the launch of the brand shooting BTS stills and video.

This is a new one of the ongoing car series that I’ve slowly been building over the years. Creating and building an original series that focuses on unique, and in some cases, seemingly one-of-a-kind finds patience is key.

After driving back across the country from East to West once I was done working for the summer I had the chance to go to Belize and it was unreal. The place is magical and the Caribbean Sea is incredible. I spent five days there before heading back home to reality here in Los Angeles…. Read more »

Recent work for the ongoing “Car” series.
I’ve been working on this series for a few years now. It started naturally from an interest in the visual lines and details in older cars and the series has grown into its own form at this point. At some point along the way I’ll actually get into the full project details as eventually the… Read more »

If you haven’t seen the car series yet on my site it is because I’ve kept it fairly low-key the whole time it has been published. I have been shooting for the series for years now and it is slowly coming together. The look, vibe and feel is intended to be very consistent so things… Read more »

Back in L.A.
The past month or so has been a blur since being back in California. I’ve been working hard on getting things back in order, working at the studio and overall just hustling as usual. It is amazing to be back on the west coast and always feels good to wake up to the sunshine daily…. Read more »
It’s been a long, tiring summer over here at Woodward. I’ve been going non-stop since the end of May and this week is my final week as the Director/Instructor. I ended up teaching over 120 students over the course of twelve weeks and each week brought something unique to the table. There is something incredibly… Read more »
I’ve been out here on the East Coast for over a month now which means that one third of the summer project here at Woodward is complete.
