Dancing : Everyone does it, sober or drunk, it's just that most of us don't talk about it. And that's okay, but the people that do, the ones that are really committed and passionate about it, can be so incredibly amazing at it, it's surreal too me.
I've been working with a PT, Nick Cutri, on and off for about a year now and he always has dancers coming in and out of his Gym. As it turns out, his wife is currently doing choreography for PINK, and between the two of them, they are connected with every kind of dancer you could possibly dream of. Before this day, I had never really shot dancing yet between Pinterest and Instagram I'm always gravitating towards dancers. These stunning images of beautiful strong humans, that are extremely talented and (the kicker) CREATIVE! Dancing is a form of Art and like Photography it is truly an expression of who we are and how we feel. So it seemed apparent, and you gotta start somewhere, I needed to start shooting dancers.
I feel upon Justine Lutz. She sent me her website and 2 hours later I was still watching her Youtube videos. From features in Taylor Swift 'Shake it off' to Ed Sheeran back to Carrie Underwood, this girls' got back.
I really wanted to shoot her in the LA river close to DT. Cliche? At dusk, reflections, movement. Whatever, I had a beautiful vision that seemed suiting for this location. So I headed down to meet her at the spot, 30 minutes early to scope things out. As it turns out the 6th street bridge that offered access to the river (with only one illegal fence hop) is now blown out, gone, RIP. I'm convinced you can still get to that zone, but not without a long traverse coming in from a couple miles away or else a lot of illegal fence hoping in very monitored zones :(. If anyone knows otherwise, please call me!!
So we improvised as artists do, and we shoot in the financial district instead... Nothing wrong with that, just not quiet the initial vision. I loved shooting Justine, it was so refreshing, and honestly hard to say goodbye.
Here's some of my favs from our session. Thank you Justine for being so fabulous. XX Enjoy

High fashion, male model test shoot with Guillermo Cordoba of Spain.Read More
This model, better known as Maria Almenta is a spanish model and winner of the contest of the Elite Model Look Spain 2015. She belonged to the Top 10 Girls in the international contest of Elite. Not only is Maria gorgeous, but she is exceptionally smart as well. We did some test shooting in Barcelona last month and our conversations were great. This lady has a bright future. Here she is wearing and Alexandra Wang white stripped suit given to her by her friends mom.
Here are my favorites with Almenta. You can also see her book with Elite Models Europe HERE
Here's some outtakes from our second location images with Elite model Stefani Brietzig. I love this location for her. The green bamboo contrasts with her red hair so beautifully. Thank you Stefani and Stephanie at Elite Models Barcelona.
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
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
