  4. Winter Wont Stop Me.



    Sure, It’s the middle of December, and yes California has some chilly Winters.. But ask me if i care, and if it’ll keep me out of the ocean, I will say NO, and NO! I’m a Shorts and scarf kind of girl when the cold comes around.

      Without a wetsuit, and only equipped with my iphone, and watershots case i run in the ocean with so much love. Swimming further and further as the waves now crash behind me. shooting as the sun goes down, i thank the lord above for all the beauty that’s shared on a daily basis. I will never walk away from something i love. Whether its a place, person, or animal, That’s why i try to make my way to the ocean every day. I’m Loyal to this Earth, and shall roam all places that were made for me explore.

  5. The Magic Tree

    Both Alli and I were working out in Atlanta on two different features this fall, Spongebob Square Pants the movie and Fast and the Furious 7.

    Living in SoCal, you never really get to appreciate the seasons, and it just so happened that on my last few days out in Hotlanta I managed to stumble upon what I call the “Magic Tree" of fall. 

    This tree literally made me stop in my tracks, so naturally I had to take a picture of it for reference. The next day before my afternoon flight, I brought my camera, one of my favorite muses, Maria Liatis, and did a 15 minute impromptu photoshoot. Here are Maria and my photos, taken on my DSLR and her smart phone. Enjoy.

                            “I’m just a little bit caught in the middle”

                                  “Life is a maze and love is a riddle”

                            "I don’t know where to go, can’t do it alone" 

                                 I’ve tried and I don’t know why”

                              “I’m just a little girl lost in the moment” 

                                   ”I’m so scared but I don’t show it” 

                          “I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down” 


                  “I know, I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show”

  6. A Character Study

    Spent Thanksgiving exploring the grittier side of downtown Los Angeles with Matt Berberi as my character study. Never been one to really photograph men, so I challenged myself by shooting a “character” as oppose to a model. Definitely a more exciting shoot since I could simple direct him instead of posing him. I also enjoyed the contrast between the well put suit and the filth of a city. 

    My inspiration being movies such as Goodfellas, Casino Royale and The Wolf Of Wallstreet.  

    Is your landlord getting ready to evict you? Good! Pick up the phone and start dialing! I want the consequences of failure to become so f-ing unthinkable that you’ll have no choice but to solve your problems by becoming rich!

    -The Wolf Of Wall Street

    Marty said, “The thing that I’ve learned about doing movies is, if you make these people as authentic as possible, the audience will forgive anything.
