I recently had the pleasure of photographing Imani. As cute as she is on the outside, this ten year old has so much talent, personality, and sweetness that my head almost popped! She was in L.A. for shoots, and even came in first in one of the competitions. This photo of her resulted her being picked as Child Model Magazine's, "Model of the Day!" Congrats Imani!
I first met Lela at the Now Showroom launch event several weeks ago in Los Angeles. More recently, we had a photo shoot in Culver City. At just age 13, she is a triple threat...rapper-model-dejay. She is in talks with the likes of Quincy Jones. I'm pretty sure she will be a household name in the near future. Check her out on youtube!
I had a great time shooting the Bentley and Lace Clothing show during Fashion Style Week LA. This gorgeous gown modeled by Ashley Spiegel Concillio, and designed by Elisabeth Copeland.
I had a wonderful time shooting at the Arts Hearts Fashion Show in Hollywood. So many talented, creative MUA, young models, and a great crowd. It was such an honor to meet Eni Hegedus-Buiron, designer at LuLu et GiGi
I had the pleasure of working with Alectra yesterday. She is professional, fun, and photogenic. This photo was published in Wild Child Magazine. Congrats Alectra! Be sure to follow her on IG@officialalectra.
I had the privilege of working with Haylie recently. At the young age of eight, she has the facial expressions of a seasoned model, and a unique beautiful look. Wow! If you are interested in working with her, please contact her mother, Risana at https://www.facebook.com/RISANA.NOWELL
It is so fun to photograph a couple in love as we explore a beautiful setting. I did that with a sweet couple, Grady and Caitlyn, in Laguna Beach. They live in the San Diego area, but drove up to Orange County because, well, that is where their favorite photog (me!) lives. And, to take advantage at one of the most gorgeous beaches on the west coast.
Remember, you do not have to be engaged to create a wonderful set of photographs with the special person in your life.
Yep, there really is a glow and beauty that comes with pregnancy. I did a photo shoot for the "model" Toya, and yes she was attractive. But wow! The mother-to-be Toya kicked it up a couple of notches. So beautiful and happy! I am honored that you asked me to photograph this wonderful time in your life.
I was thrilled to have been asked to be part of the RAW event in Santa Ana on June 5th. It was the first show that I have been in, and I used it as a kick-off for Jack Houser Photography. It was great meeting the public, and fellow artists. I will be receiving some more pictures in a week, and even a little video in a month.
I've had the great fortune of meeting and talking with, two incredible photographers in the past month. The first was Jeff Lipsky, and just yesterday, at the OC Photo Summit, I chatted with legendary photographer, Douglas Kirkland (shown here in a portrait by photographer Chris Orwig, from his book, People Pictures, and posted with his permission). Mr. Kirkland has photographed everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Michael Jackson. He gave a warm candid presentation of some of his work that included behind-the-scene stories. He is currently 80 years young and still loves his work and keeping busy. He said he and his wife Francoise, will soon be off to Milan shooting for a top designer.
This year's Paris Photo Los Angeles, held at the Paramount Pictures backlot in early May, was another wonderful event for lovers of photography. Exhibitors from different countries had work displayed in three large sound stages. Gallery representatives, and many of the photographers were on hand to answer questions. At one point I noticed a gentleman paying close attention to some photos of rockets from America's early space program. I was curious about why he was so interested in that subject. As we chatted, he told me his name, and it was vaguely familiar to me. Then it came to me. I first learned of Jeff Lipsky in a book by Chris Orwig, People Pictures. Jeff is a successful photographer based in the LA area. Although he photographs many top celebrities, he was very nice and even consented to pose for me. Be sure to see Jeff Lipsky and Chris Orwig's work at their websites.
