Elite Model Stefani Brietzig

This Brazilian, Elite Model, Stefani Brietzig, is such a babe and absolute pleasure to shoot with.  Stefani has walked a lot of shows all over times, and it's really obvious in her work.  We did a quick session in Barcelona last week just outside my hotel.  Super simple, no makeup, 'I woke up like this' sort of look and she totally rocked here's outtakes from one location.  I'll follow up later in the week with our other location. Enjoy.  XX

Reese Peters test shots ~ Encinitas

Frank Models talent Reese Peters, and I, shot a few weeks ago in our neighborhood, Encinitas California.  Nothing planned just two girls hoping to create something special and have fun along the way.  Reese changed a few times in the car.  No H&M just natural.  I love how some of these turned out.  Reese is a perfect model, beautiful, young, talented and fun.  Here are some of my favorites from the photo shoot

Glorifying Avalanches

Life is such a blessing, especially for those of us who have the time and freedom to be able to get out there and enjoy the outdoors. I encourage you to get out and enjoy the snow and the mountains at least once. Before you venture into the backcountry make sure to educate you and your partners about the dangers out there.

It is up to you and only you to make sure you are taking responsibility for yourself and EVERYONE you are out there with. Don't get me wrong you can enjoy it and have fun, but you can only do so my taking the right steps to ensure everyone's safety. 

Snowbardmag.com recently put out an article on the glorification of avalanches that has been occurring in many short films. The little clips of the avalanche you see in the films are being glorified for entertainment purposes. Many do not realize the true dangers of an avalanche due to this glorification, so they don't think there is anything to be worried about. I highly recommend learning all the safety measures you can before you hit the slopes, such as the classes offered by Whistler Blackcomb.

Thank you Snowboard Magazine, and Jens for continually bringing awareness to these matters and give yourself credit for reading about this:
