exploring up in topanga. i created a tree using sticks and leaves. kind of a weird exercise. definitely makes one appreciate the perfection of the real thing.

lava runners



i saw an amazing film today called the visitor. here is the website for the film: http://www.thevisitorfilm.com/ Link....

teens in topanga




this was my first shoot up in my studio/location in topanga. i had my amazing friend/photographer/assistant vu helping me light, remain calm and i even learned how to use a generator for my strobes. nina the amazing make up / stylist extraordinaire and the wunderkind hair man life of the party jonathan. the models kaisley and josiah are from jet set models in la jolla. my favorite agency.
