I met Boom, yes that’s his awesome name, years ago when I first starting my photography career in SF. He’s a lofi music making, skating, SF dude who’s also a full time model. He’s always had such great energy on shoots that I wanted to spend an overcast morning skating around his home in Ocean Beach, SF to capture more about him than a fashion story. The amazing stylist Annie Palmiotto styled the shoot pulling looks inspired by skate culture with brands like Roark and Stussy. Here’s the images from that morning!
Here’s the film I directed of Miranda along with the BTS video of our shooting the video and stills.

Since things typically slow down towards the beginning of the year I wanted to take the time to shoot something personal and collaborate with my creative team without any limits. Miranda, the ballerina, reached out to me a few months to work together and I knew she would be perfect for a personal work shoot. We styled her in the most beautiful dresses that she could move around in and express herself. We blasted everything from jazz, hip hop, acoustic guitar, and samba for her to move around to create beautiful shapes and movement with. Here are the images from our wonderful shoot. The next blog post is the film we directed along with some BTS film from the shoot as well.

I met Adrian Grenier at the Lonely Whale Making Waves event last year in SF, blog post here, and we had the opportunity to shoot a session while he was in town meeting with some tech investments of his. He’s a busy guy so we had a half hour or so to get all of the shots done we had in mind. Shot in the financial district of San Francisco alongside his dog Pip.
Inspired by an iconic photograph of Marlon Brando shaving, my male model buddy of mine asked if we could take our own spin on the image. Shot in my studio, he actually started the day with a full mountain man beard and we proceeded the shave it off in order to get the shot. Here’s the end results.
