aXis Magazine January 2010

I shot and laid out the cover for aXis Magazine's January 2010 edition. The cover featured Leslie Nelson, the Orlando finalist for Maxim's Hometown Hottie competition in 2009. This image is a composite of three different photos (Leslie was shot in my living room). This issue features the 20 Coolest People in Orlando (I am an alumni of this from 2 years ago), including Tara Lightfoot, most talented model & star of our short film 2:22!

Here is the behind the scenes video shot by Shawn Haran, and edited by myself. Also a shoutout to Luandra Whitehurst for the awesome makeup!

Here is a link to some other shots from this shoot.

PHOTOSHOOT: Kam Lee for Rue Morgue

Last month, I had gotten a buzz from my friend Kam Lee (Lead singer of Cryptidz, Bone Gnawer, The Grotesquery, ect) about needing to do a photoshoot for an upcoming article that Rue Morgue Magazine (2nd largest horror magazine in the world) was doing on him and The Grotesquery. We had a fun evening of doing some different shots against a black screen, and then composited in a large stone wall being smashed around Kam. In the end a pretty BA image. They photoshopped out the background for the magazine, but still looks killer. Here is the final shot in the Rue Morgue article just released this week (January 2010 Issue). Grab it now!

While shooting on set photos for our my friend Kevin O'Neil's short film titled "Captain Fin", I was able to get some nice fashionable candids of Actress Spencer Locke. Spencer has starred in movies such as Resident Evil: Extinction, and Monster House. She was a joy to work with on set, and I look forward to seeing her in more projects in the future.

PHOTOSHOOT: Marliese & Eddie

I was recently asked by my friend, and model (whom I abuse to no end, and have killed in 2 movies now) Marliese, if I would be available to shoot some photos of her Husband Eddie and herself. Eddie is in the military, and had just come back from his final deployment overseas, so it was a joyous occasion. We shot on Lake Harney in Geneva, FL. How great it was having two subjects with such an intense chemistry.

Also on my recent trip to Los Angeles, I was able to reconnect with Actress/Model Evelyn that I had gone to high school with in the Keys. We shot around L.A., and then also back in Orlando during Christmas break, when she was on my coast. Here is a shot from an in studio shoot in Orlando.

Shot on a Black background, with the stone composited in.

At the end of 2009, I upgraded all of my photography equipment, and have started lining up new photoshoots. I finally got some time to catch up during this Holiday weekend, and I'll start posting new photos as the shoots roll in.

While I was in Los Angeles in December, I had the pleasure of doing a quick shoot with my actress friend, Priscilla. Here is a fun shot on the roof of her apartment in Beverly Hills.

Why hello 2010, fancy meeting you here.

Happy New Year! A holiday built on rebirth, allowing you to forget the mistakes and shortcomings of the previous year, and plan for what can only be a brighter future. 2009 was probably the Best and Worst year of my life. We made some huge steps in the right direction, and took some major hits along the way.

Melanie and I spent our evening at the Enzian Theater's James Bond themed New Years party. I dressed in a white suit with a Golden Gun as Francisco Scaramanga (from The Man With The Golden Gun) and Melanie wore silver and blue as Miranda Frost (from Die Another Day). It was quite enjoyable, ringing in the New Year with the theater transformed into a dance club, ballon drop, and the couple hundred other party-goers, some dressed in their favorite Bond attire (My award would go to the Moonraker couple, which would have been my costume, if I had a spacesuit handy). All in all a blast.

I welcome the upcoming year with open arms, and look forward to build further upon all of the accomplishments we made in 2009. Now where is my flying car dammit!?
