Turkey Sushi

Maria Bertrand preparing her signature Thanksgiving dish, Turkey Sushi Le Moderne. She says it saves a lot of work because there is no cooking time involved.

Freeze Frame!

There were no defects to be found
Snapshot image froze without a sound”

Holiday Photo Shoot Behind The Scenes

Some behind the scenes views of a Holiday photo shot with Maria Bertrand. There is a very special series we did for Thanksgiving but you will have to wait a couple of days to see even a teaser of that one. It is just way too fun!

I have to say Thank You to my good friend and also a great photographer Jaime Klein for allowing us to invade his studio. He was also kind enough to shoot a few behind the scenes pics with my little point and shoot camera. Jaime is in Van Nuys, so especially if you need those head shots, go check him out! And he is moving to a bigger studio just nearby.

A big Thank You to Natalie Lyle for yet again, another day of Makeup and Hair Styling. Thank You to Chris my assistant for the day. Good job for the first time with me.

The big Thank You to my Super Model herself, Maria Yvonne Bertrand. Always beautiful, always knows how to look in front of a camera. And she has a certain sense of humor that makes it all work! You will see that soon!

The Prowler Arrives!

How very fun is this! A United States Navy EA-6B Prowler arriving at the Palm Springs Air Museum for it’s official retirement. This plane, flown by it’s Navy crew, made it’s way across the country, from active duty in the Persian Gulf on the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush, to NAS Whidbey Island in Washington to here in Palm Springs just this morning. I have some real cool video I shot as well. More later!

7 Weeks In Budapest For Six Dance Lessons

Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks – The Movie was 7 Weeks in Budapest, Hungary for me. The movie website features many of my photographs shot as the still photographer on the production. To be released in a few weeks the movie is based on the hit play which has been seen in 24 countries and 14 languages. Starring Gena Rowlands, Cheyenne Jackson and Rita Moreno. Check out the website and trailer and go see the movie, it is great fun!

“Does This Plane Match My Outfit?”

Fashionably fit Sharon Lim deciding if the Boeing Navy Stearman matches her outfit or if she should keep shopping. Personally I think this is the one Sharon should take home with her. What do you think?
