It's Thursday, so I think a throwback shot is appropriate. This one comes from a shoot that I did several weeks ago with Lydia. The thing I loved about this particular image was really the simplicity of it. No elaborate poses, no fancy lighting setup, just Lydia being herself. I think that's how the best photographs are made, when all things...

Pouty Face

This is from a shoot I did about 7 years ago with this model, we had so much fun that we ended up shooting for 5hrs straight in every room in my apartment. She was enjoying so much that she didn't want to stop and tried various outfits, poses and rooms.

I think this is one of the better shots which was shot in my hallway, the reason the...

Provocatrix IV

Shot at a 5* hotel in Amalfi, Italy back in 2015. For those thinking Amalfi is a great have to shoot there location we found it not that great. Lots of better place in Italy and Southern Italy to shoot without all the tourists buzzing around.

The Wheelhouse IV

I shot this image while exploring and scouting an amazing lostplace in september for a workshop in may 2019 on the island of Sardinia.

Very remote location. 10 miles of dirt track followed by 2 miles walkdown into valley but very worth it.

Jasmine at Indian Lake State Forest

Made at a local park in northeast Ocala, Florida. We had been driving around looking for a different location, but when that didn't pan out, we just happened to find this forest park and it turned out to be a great spot that I've used a few times since then.
