OB Meets Venice

Some of the best photos that I’ve ever shot are the spontaneous ones, and even the ones I doubted I’d like at all. This was a different situation, mostly user error, but more on that later… The cars in these photos caught my eye while I was wandering through Ocean Beach a few weeks ago, and the palms you see in the bottom were…

B.T.S. with B.Towner Photography

I recently had the chance to collaborate with my friend Brandon of B. Towner Photography and gorgeous model Yamillette Flores. B. is a veteran, like myself, who has discovered a love of shooting environmental fashion portraits. Personally, I’ve always loved fashion photography.

It’s been a fantastic experience being able to do what I’ve always wanted to do. It’s also cool being surrounded by people who feel the same way. The…

Escape to Tulum

I recently traveled to Tulum, Mexico, for a much-needed getaway… Yes, in the middle of a pandemic. Like mostly everyone else in California, I had been inside since mid-March.
