I think Shauna Toerner does naked and restless very well indeed. Her dilemma helped with Makeup and Hair Styling by Natalie Lyle. An extra series on Fujifilm Instax instant film from our photo shoot at FD Photo Studio in downtown Los Angeles. Thanks!

Surround Yourself

Much of what Kerstin has to say is mirrored by me. “Surround yourself with people of the same powerful energy”. She is one extraordinary individual.

A tremendous photo and video shoot. Thank You Kerstin Schulze. Big Thank You’s to the wonderful Estee Lauder featured Makeup Artist Blanche LeBeau; my so very talented assistant for the day Shauna Toerner, amazing hair styling by Phata Chavis.

Photo shoot notes… Photographs with a Hasselblad digital camera system. Lighting by Broncolor. Videos shot on Fujifilm X-H1 and X-T1 cameras. Shot at FD Photo Studio in downtown Los Angeles. Thanks!

Warrior Woman!

One of the most incredible women I know, Kerstin Schulze. Accomplished fitness star and trainer, actress seen in many features and commercials. A role model for those who are bullied, feel different or left out. We will be seeing much more of Kerstin and her message of being a better you.

From our photo and video shoot just a few days ago. Make up by the Estee Lauder featured artist, Blanche LeBeau. Hair by @phatarachavis. My assistant for the day, the many talented Shauna Toerner.

Red Posing Fun

Some fun with Kajira posing with background sounds by Broncolor strobes. Love having her in front of the camera! The actual photo shoot done with Hasselblad digital. Behind the scenes video with a Fujifilm X-T1 camera.


Hair Raising!

A very amazing Harmoni Everett showing great control by being able to raise her hair by just thinking it. Yes! Notice her tremendous concentration as through great personal will and exceptional hair muscle power, she was able to get her hair to stand up as I photographed the moment. Don’t try this at home! Truly an incredible woman!

BTS Details

Getting lots of questions about my studio shoot last week with NYC fashion model Nora Zainglein. It was in a studio near downtown Los Angeles at the Brewery Arts District which is very cool I must say. Had not been there in many years.

Some of the really important details are the people I get to work with. Blanche LeBeau is a premier Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist working around the world with Estee Lauder. I cannot begin to tell you how lucky I am to have her enjoy shooting with me. This shoot was even more fun with her talent of body painting! Very Thankful for Blanche LeBeau!

Then there is my newer buddy Harmoni Everett. Wow is she a find! Harmoni is best friends with another best friend of mine, a most gorgeous professional model, actress and beautiful woman. Harmoni has been a professional model, a successful actress and has worked in producing photo shoots. And is a wonderful photographer herself. She not only worked with me on this photo shoot as my assistant carrying and moving heavy stuff, but also wardrobe ideas and shooting behind the scenes photos. On top of all that we photographed Harmoni too and those photos are astonishing! She is wonderfully creative! You will see those photos soon.

Then there is Nora and she is wonderful. Blanche introduced me to photos of Nora probably a year ago or more and I said then that I really was looking forward to photographing her. This is now our second photo shoot together and she is just perfection. Nora looks incredible in front of the camera, knows her stuff, easy and so very fun to work with. I adore this woman!

It is the people you work with who are so very very important! Now people always say it is the photographer and not the gear that makes great photographs. And that is certainly true. But for me I do not like to short change what I do or what I do for my clients. So I go with the best gear possible. It is just what I do.

My camera system for these types of shoots for me is Hasselblad. I have always admired Hasselblad cameras and the images they produce. And the history of Hasselblad creating the  photographs, the most memorable in history including going into Outer Space and to the Moon. Only sorry I didn’t start with Hasselblad sooner in my shooting. Then there is my lighting gear, Broncolor. For any number of reasons moving up to Broncolor is like going from a great car to a Rolls Royce or Ferrari. There is just nothing else like it.

I will not say that I am a great photographer but I can say I give it all I have got all the way around. So my results are quality, consistency and sometimes really great photographs. And I always try to make sure that everyone has fun doing it! That is my behind the scenes details on this and many of my photo shoots. Thanks!

Hair Raising Behind The Scenes

Harmoni Everett managed to get the almost exact moment when Nora Zainglein had her hair at the top of the her head swing and the strobe fired as I shot the photograph. Wow! That Nora a great model to work with and absolutely beautiful! I love her in front of the camera and she is fun to have around too!

Behind the scenes with the very professional New York City fashion model Nora Zainglein. Body painting, makeup and hair styling by premier Estee Lauder artist Blanche LeBeau. Photo assistant and behind the scenes photography by Harmoni Everett. She is also great with wardrobe and a great model herself! Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Only the best!

Side note… my clothes are looking a little baggy, lost over thirty pounds since February. And more to go yet! I am liking this! Thanks!

Beauty And The Bald Spot

Behind the scenes photography by my assistant for the day Harmoni Everett which clearly exhibits the incredible gorgeousness of our model from NYC, Nora Zainglein but also my increasingly declining hair volume. More ‘behind the scenes’ than I expected lol.

The incredible Makeup, Hair Styling and Body Painting (you will see that soon too) for the day by the premier Estee Lauder artist Blanche LeBeau. Studio photo shoot in Downtown Los Angeles, Hasselblad digital camera equipment and Broncolor lighting. Always the best!

Body Paint BTS

Behind the scenes last week in Los Angeles, studio photo shoot with my buddy Nora Zainglein, fashion and lifestyle model from NYC. Just love this woman and she is gorgeous! Body paint, makeup and hair styling by the Estee Lauder premier artist Blanche LeBeau.

My assistant for the day, the ever surprising Harmoni Everett. She carried heavy stuff, took some turns in front of the camera and shot the behind the scene photos. Gonna see if she will wash the car next time too… ok maybe not.

Carries Heavy Stuff!

Behind the scenes studio shoot last week in Los Angeles. Harmoni Everett working as my assistant. She can carry really heavy stuff! And she has did a bunch of different wardrobe changes as a model that day too! Wow she is great. Our next model coming up shortly Dee Ross from NYC! A full day with super MUA Blanche LeBeau! So fun!

Black & White Photography

Of course I love black and white photography. Here is an example of one of my favorites. There is black, which I must say fits her very well. And there is some white there in that bottle. Perfect! And my favorite cookie model, Maria Bertrand. Wonderful Makeup and Hair Styling by the equally wonderful Natalie Lyle. Photographed with a Hasselblad digital camera system. Only the best!
