2013 PDN The Look Contest, People’s Choice Award.


Earlier this year I entered the 2013 PDN The Look Contest, which is a yearly contest that focuses on a blend of fashion and fine art. I ended up winning the People’s Choice Award. I entered a series of photographs that I shot in Beverly Hills when my friend, and awesome fashion shooter Benjo invited me down to shoot some of my large format antique processes during an editorial shoot. I packed up my 8×10 Calumet Orbit C1 and had a blast shooting Noora L of Brand Model Management, Finland along side Benjo and his team. Here are those images, and a video that Nick Korompilas shot behind the scenes of us for. It was a fun day, especially getting to set up my mobile darkroom tent and processing the images right there on set, something I hadn’t done before. A big thanks to Benjo and the team for the invite, without that I wouldn’t have been able to create these images. The gallery of winning image can be seen here, and  my new listing on PDN’s PhotoServe is here. It’s not first place, but there is always next year!

LA Rooftop Massacre.

A few weeks back I got to meet up with my friend Megan Massacre in Los Angeles for a busy day of photo  making! It’s always great when friends from back East come out and visit, especially when we can work on new projects together. This image is one of the first ones we can release, and it’s a bit of a teaser for all the other awesome shots we got, it was used for her interview about her new TV special on TLC over at Life Goes Strong . You can check out Megan’s tattoo work over at her website, and see her on TLC’s New York Ink. Thanks again to Megan, Jordan (for being an awesome assistant and huge help), Kym Fregoso (for wardrobe) and Joe for the awesome location on a rooftop in Downtown Los Angeles. Keep an eye out for more images from this day! I’ll leave you with a great candid that Jordan was able to snag when we were checking out some shots.
