The Heart is The Hunter || Album Cover Shoot

This year I've had the pleasure of shooting quite a few musicians. Before I was serious about a having a camera in my hand, I toted a trumpet around. 3 years ago I had every intention of being an audio engineer. When I met Lenne, I was on that track, serving as the sound tech in a touring play she co-starred in alongside my wife. So when the time came around for Lenne to drop what she calls a "folk indie pop" album, I was ready to shoot an artist exposing a different side of themselves. Below are a few of my favorites from our "The Heart is The Hunter" sessions.

Wolf & Shepherd—2015 Lookbook

Wolf & Shepherd isn't your run-of-the-mill dress shoe company, they make dress shoes you can actually rock all day and practically do anything while wearing them. The idea is a running shoe with a classic Italian silhouette— shoes for the grown-up cozy boy. I was quite familiar with the brand prior to the shoot, so when the day finally came around to work together, I was beyond ready. 

A Broad Range

I'll never be one to pretend that I know what it's like to be a woman. Let alone a woman in the 1960's. Being the only male on set for Typical Mag's "A Broad Range" gave me a chance to reflect and empathize. What these ladies did was put a face to a struggle. They made it personal. In subtle ways we dehumanize those who aren't like us. Is everything peachy keen for woman in the present day? No. But the ladies I know make dope art that reminds us that they also have a place at the table...and might even stand on it. 

Yvonne + Charles || Koreatown Wedding

An overcast day is a photographer's playground. Luckily for me, Yvonne + Charles got married at the peak of LA's June gloom season. Charles loves this woman. Yvonne loves this man. And it's evident. This is the day they made it official. 

Thanks for having me, Mr. & Mrs. Jones!

And a very special thanks to Jasmine for second shooting with me!
