Graciela Eunhae Ahn part 3 Dec. 09 post


Nothing big. I just wanted to add another great photo of her. We work so well together. It might have taken me 30 minutes to clean this picture. What you see here is 99% all natural (minus my color correction and all) but other than that. Dig that!!!!!

Brent Cary Nov.9



Brent Cary. I'm sure this guy looks a little bit familiar. I shot him earlier this year with my homie, Chan. She's in California now. I miss her. (Tear) He was in town for the weekend from Nashiville and we decided to hook and make some magic. Here just some of the shots we took.

The Script - Breakeven

video
I am so feeling this song right now. I woke up this morning at 6am with only 3 hours of sleep under my belt. I turn the channel to MTV and when I saw this video, it was like dude was speaking for me, word for word. Ain't it funny when you go through things in life and it is like when you hear certain songs, you really relate to them so well? Love is Pain and Pain is Love. Why?

Denzel McArthur Nov. 09




Finally, I am getting some guys in my port. This is one very professional 17 year old. For a while now I haven't shot anybody under the age of 18, let alone a teenager period. This guy came in and was ready to work. With the support of his 15 year old sister behind me, these are some of the shots from the shoot.

Graciela Eunhae Ahn part 2 Nov. 09



Graciela Eunhae Ahn



My homegirl Graciela. She is a very respectable young lady. She is very open to all my ideas and understands my vision of sexy but yet being classy at the same time. I love working with her. We had fun today and got a lot of great pics out of it too. Here are some.

Arick's Jay-Z - On to the Next One Music Video

. video
This is a concept I came up with in my head as I was listening to the beat. I just saw sound and I just wanted to show everybody what was in my head when I heard this. I'm kinda proud of it because it is 99.9% exactly what I wanted. Also the lyrics are exactly what I'm about right now. Let's keep it moving my fellow artist. You have to be well rounded in this game to stay fresh. I'm trying to do my part by pushing the envelope. The ball is in your court now.

Film Strip

video
This is the continuation of the series I did of Dani earlier today. I spent a great deal of time editing that series, that I wanted to do something really cool with the end product. Well, here it is.

Dani Mitchell Nov.09



I met Dani during the Bella Honey's video shoot and we had a blast. I really liked our first impression. She was ON TIME and very cooperative with following my directions and concepts. Beautiful girl, personality, and model. I love her hustler spirit. She is in the talks of shooting with my homegirl Audria so watch out for that. Here are just SOME of the pics from our shoot this past Tuesday. I just love this series. She took so many great pictures of dang near the same pose I had to post them all.

Figure Study

This morning as I was working in the GAP, I started looking around and tried to figure out a new cool project to work on after I got off from work. All throughout the store are new holiday mannequins with all of these cool accessories and clothes. A light just went off in my head and said, why not shoot your own mannequin set up. I asked my manager if I could take them home for a few hours. She said, yes and this is just two of the many cool shots I got in that short amount of time. I just really want for my work to span all across the board and using as many resources as I can is the best way I feel I can do that.

Diamond Nov. 09







I just had to post these ASAP. I am really proud of these. I am really pushing for a more sexy yet artistic direction. The "T" and "A" shots are out the door for me right now. I think you can still have "shock value" with putting somebody's assets in front of the camera.

Bella Honey Music Video

What a day I have had. Just from the beginning of the day it has been hectic. Lamesica and I had planned to shoot the video at Level II earlier this week but just trying to get all of the needed models for the project to show up really became a problem because either everybody was working or something came up. Well, through it all we still got the job done and here are some of the photo stills from the video shoot. I LOVE 'EM. I can't wait to get on the video. But for now, this is what I have to keep you satisfied.

Inspirational photos






I saw this on the net and it made me feel so good about my craft and reminded me how great simple art can be. You don't need all of the fluff, just a great concept.

A NEW YORK STATE OF MIND

Here are some pics that I took last year when I went to NY to visit my twin brother with my girl friend. This was her first time in NY and boy did we give her a crash course of the city. By the time the sun went down, we were done. That was a very busy day for all of us. Anyway, here are some of the pics I took of the downtown NY.


ANDRE 10.5.09

I just thought that this was a cool and different shot for my brother. He normally gets your average hip hop photo shoot but this time when you look at his picture, I want him to stand out. Hopefully he likes it.
