Thanks for perusing and visiting my port. I shoot from mild to wild, classy to trashy, sexy to sassy, and timeless to tasteless. I don't stick to any one style. My port is a variety show, without uniformity. Whatever pleases my eyes and inspires me, that's what I'll shoot. My photo work has been published in Playboy Magazine, it was quite an honor (July/August 2009).
Recently, I have made a career extension to become a movie producer (yeah, really). My very first movie is called "She's Lost Control," it was selected into the 64th Berlin International Film Festival, had its World Premiere in Berlin (February, 2014), it won the Best Picture in the Forum section of the festival. It also had its North American Premiere at the March 2014 SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX. NY premiere at the end of March 2014 at the Lincoln Center and MoMA. As of Nov. 25 2014, it also received 2 nominations from the 30th Independent Spirit Awards, including Best First Feature. My following movie projects are in their various development stages. Now back to photo talk.
Many of my photos require advanced planning; from the outfit/costume, to communicating with the model, location selection, to the actual shoot, then a lot of work after the shoot. In the process, I try to have fun. I always greet you with a sunny smile and try to make my models laugh and shoot in a very relaxed environment and atmosphere.
My background is accounting and cinema-television from the University of Southern California (USC). I am a member of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) since 2003. I am also a radio personality here in L.A.
Thanks for taking the time to read the written part of my port.
Lastly, I leave you with this:
We don't make a photograph just with a camera; we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, and the people we have loved.
Now, please go ahead and click on the pictures.
