Production Notes: Shooting in the Outer Hebrides
From late August to early September of this year, I once again spent two weeks on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides working on content pieces for the television show that I’ve been developing with friend and colleague David Jackson for the last few years. The trip began with the stunning…Read More
Photo Story: Shots Fired from a Digital Machine
A couple Fridays ago I headed downtown to do a quick photo shoot with Jessica Nicole of Peepshow Clothing and local LA fashion model Erin Kennedy (@theerinkennedy). It was a quick and easy setup, one white wall and one photo strobe with a softbox. After a series of homemade tacos and guacamole to fuel up,…Read More
Marketing and Media at KBB
On February 22, 2016 the production team and I arrived at the Kelly Blue Book offices in Irvine, CA at about 6am. We had three interviews scheduled with key individuals in the company that day. This was a follow up shoot. We shot several other interviews a couple months earlier along with the Upper…Read More
All I Want for Xmas is a Peepshow!
It was supposed to be just another Xmas party until the Frito Pie showed up. Down at the Junker Designs studio in Los Angeles a nice pre-Xmas fashion party was in full swing. It was a joint effort between Junker Designs and peepshow Clothing. Guests were invited to food, drink, good times, live screen…Read More
The 6th Street Bridge is Gone!
The 6th Street bridge in Los Angeles is an entertainment icon. You may not realize it, but you’ve seen it a million times in film and TV. On this particular day we were planning to shot on it and under it just as we’ve done so many times before. It was about 7:30am when we met…Read More
Photo Story: Introducing MacArthur Park
While driving home from a shoot at the Hotel Figueroa in Downtown LA I noticed something unusual. MacArthur Park is not a place that people usually want to hang out at, not in the last few decades anyway. What you would typically expect to find at the park are used needles and dead bodies, not an art…Read More
Junker Designs Halloween Shoot
There are times when you can just make it up as you go. First, we’ll shoot the two models in hooded shrugs and the underwear, then we’ll pour fake blood out of this zombie head prop onto one of them. The great thing is, those in the moment ideas usually work. At least we…Read More
Punk Rock Isn’t Dead! Face to Face – Triple Crown of Shows
That’s right, punk rock isn’t dead! Face to Face returns to the Observatory for three sold out shows. This video was a marketing piece to tie in Face to Face with Lucky 13 Apparel and ASG Guitars. The band was in the middle of doing their Triple Crown of Shows at the Observatory in Orange…Read More
Gritty in the City with Lucky 13
Shot on a rare rainy day in Alhambra. We needed to quickly capture a day in the life of a custom car builder. To create a sense of being immersed in the lifestyle, we pulled back the color so that it feels as though you are remembering being there rather than watching it happen…Read More
Deadly Fashion with a She Demon!
I’ve spent a lot of time at the Junker Designs studio lately. On this particular day we had Alicia Vigil, bass player of the She Demons on model duty. We knocked out a few quick outfit changes and got some great shots. Just keeping it simple with one octabox. Photography doesn’t have to be…Read More
