Just got back from the White House as a guest at the annual USO Fourth of July show where the band Fun. performed. The show and whole event was pretty awesome and fun — pun intended.
Anyway, here are a few shots I thought I’d put online for the masses. Enjoy!
Last week I teamed up with Soo Park again (Makeupon.me) to do beauty shoot, this time with Erika Morgan—a vibrant and enthusiastic model who was looking to do a portfolio refresh.
I have a ton more to edit, but I wanted to throw these on the blog sooner than later!
I had the honor of photographing blue legend B.B. King at the Howard Theatre this past weekend. Below are a few of my favorites, but you can see the full set at the Brightest Young Things.
Here’s a preview from a fun and quick shoot I had with Joey and Saphonia. Saphonia and I go way back, and her and Joey are also long time friends. They both made such terrific models! The goal was to get some energetic lifestyle shots in DUMBO with the bridges and city in the background.
This shoot was over a month ago, before Hurricane Sandy. My prayers go out to the victims of Sandy and wish for a continued recovery for all the impacted areas.
This past Friday I covered the DC Ladies Arm Wrestling Championships for the Brightest Young Things. The event was a blast and the costumes were awesome. These ladies are fierce!
The rowdy event raised over $6000 for Miriam’s Kitchen, a DC non-profit working to end chronic homelessness in DC.

Last month I teamed up with Sascha, a fun and energetic actress and model, for an outdoor shoot on the C&O Canal in Georgetown. I’ve always wanted to do a shoot on the C&O at sunset, and Sascha was the perfect person to collaborate with on this! Shooting with her was a blast (except for the mosquito attacks), and she even did her own hair, makeup, and wardrobe!
In the shots below I was going for a more “commercial” look, while still maintaining a natural vibe. The warm sunlight filtering through Sascha’s curly, blonde hair helped create this feel. To balance the luminance, I lit Sascha with a 50-inch softbox (without it, she’d just be a silhouette).
Enjoy the photos!
