Back Of The Closet

I always suggest to models that they should bring along the things they bought but have stuck in a closet or in a drawer because they never found the opportunity to wear those things. It can be so fun! in our photo shoot, Kajira had a few of those kinds of things.

Photo shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.


Actually Simple

Behind the scenes with a stunning model, Kajira. Much of the time my setups are pretty simple. Although I usually have an assistant on hand for at least setup and tear down, most everything else is pretty much easy for me to do by myself if needed.

My surroundings obviously are very comfortable and roomy. I can reverse this room and have even higher ceilings. I also have tilt up sets that can create entire rooms outdoors in complete privacy. A very beautiful pool and spa with stamped concrete patios and decks recently all redone just before Summer. New landscaping going in now that will allow for garden and tree scenery. Plenty of room on hand for full makeup and hair styling as well and wardrobe changing.

I do depend on the best equipment to make sure I have not only great results but also no failures or problems. From heavy duty Matthews stands to Broncolor lighting and a Hasselblad digital camera system. I make no excuses for wanting to make sure that each photo shoot works every time. Only the best!


Kajira Behind The Scenes In Our Photo Shoot

Add A Vintage Turban

Photo shoot with model Kajira was just so very fun! Tall, slender and so very well poised! I cannot even begin to tell you, but I have the photos and some great video! But for now I loved her look with such a simple wardrobe addition as this vintage turban. Made my day!

Photo shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Only the best!


Elegance Of Posing

Working with professional ballet, dance model Viktoria “Viktory” Hofstaedter. A photo shoot filled with her elegance of motion as part of her posing. Each and every pose a work of art.

Photo shoot notes… The beautiful makeup and hair styling by Natalie Lyle. Hasselblad digital camera system. Lighting by Broncolor. Only the best.



My Selfie

I haven’t shot a selfie since I was in Budapest. This time at the March Air Field Museum. Think I look good?


I Don’t Get It

So the sign is right there! But when I used it everybody got so upset. At Moorten Botanical Garden.


I Was Just Standing There

I was just standing there, taking this nice photograph of this little mountain when this airplane got right in my way! I have identified it as a C-17 Globemaster III departing March Air Reserve Base. Think I should complain?
