For a while I've had a concept that I wanted to pull off. An overheated model outside needing to cool off... but the only liquid nearby is a can of gasoline and she is addicted to cigarettes. This concept spawned into the shoot below with the lovely Sarah Ann. Between hurricanes, blown tires, and southern security guards, we pulled this shot off. I call it, "Smoke Break."

Special thanks to Whitney Hayes for the assistance.

A Brilliant Lie @ The Haven

I was asked by my good friend Tara Lightfoot to shoot a promo video for her band for an upcoming show at The Haven. They wanted to do something to showcase their sound, style and humor. We came up with this funny concept and video. Hopefully it turns enough heads to come check out the show!

Vacation 2011 - Sapphire Valley, NC

We had the opportunity this year to vacation at a beautiful 3 story timeshare in Sapphire Valley, North Carolina, that was going to go to waste from a friend of our's parents. Ironically, the same area where we had vacationed before, where Melanie's good friend, Nikki lives. She was our tour guide for the week as we introduced Victor to new things such as Reindeer, Waterfalls, and best of all, Mountains!

PHOTOSHOOT: 100 Monkeys - Live at House of Blues

For our dear friend Madeleine's birthday, she chose to celebrate by a night out at the (Cursed) Disney House of Blues to see the popular band, 100 Monkeys. Ironically, the band is fronted by Jackson Rathbone, recently of the "Twilight" Movies fame, but also the starer of our friend (and recent housemate for the past week) Anthony DiBlasi's film "Dread". I grabbed a photopass through our buddies at Et Cetera Magazine and brought my sister Caitlin (who is a huge Twilight fan). The evening was most eventful, and here is a handful of the photos to give you an idea...

With all of the excitement around the fact that a new 1930s comedy film might be shooting soon in town, I've gotten the call to do a few different 1930s themed shoots. Recently, I teamed up with Makeup artists Sarah Okun & Amanda Coleman, Hair stylists Rebekah Futrell & Kaitlyn Matlock and our lovely models Leigh Anne, Jenn & Dayna to create some new 1930s-homage glamour images that could show off everyone's abilities. I like the idea that these photos were found in a dusty old box in a deceased Grandmother's attic somewhere. Worn, and handled over the past 80 years, from all different places. Here is what we came up with...
