There is a pretty rad pop-rock powerhouse all girl band (and yes I say band, because they actually do play all of their instruments) called Dollface from Orlando that is starting to make quite a name for themselves. I had the recent ability to do a studio shoot with the band (after having shot lead singer, Tiffany Martin many times before). They were looking for a high fashion style, but of course mixed with my photoshopped sensibilities. Here is the fabulous shot we came up with. Each girl shot in studio individually, and then composited into the background image. I liked the idea that the girls were inviting the viewer into their lair... of rock.

PHOTOSHOOT: Sarah & the Shark

During a recent photoshoot for our boys in Of Valleys, I had the opportunity to bring in one of my favorite alternative models, Sarah Ann Martini. I had a hotel room for an hour, and that day I was super jonesing to do a shoot with a hammerhead shark... Sarah also happened to be standing nearby, and so this image was born.

This past October, I had the opportunity to come on board and help produce a new Police-thriller feature film to be shot in Central Florida.

TWO DAYS tells the story of GUY MARKS, a police officer with 27 years in the force. This is his last day before retiring. His job is being a police officer, his life is being a police officer. His entire existence has been the daily routine of patrolling seedy streets and dealing with scum. Now it is all coming to an end and all his inner demons finally will get a chance to surface.

We shot for 18 days throughout October, on location from Sanford, FL to Lake Wales, FL. We had a great crew and cast, and knocked the project out on time and on budget.

Here is a concept poster I shot and designed-

Here are a couple of the film stills I grabbed while not running around the production office like crazy.

We now are working, editing the film in Post. Find out more about it at it's Facebook page here.

I shot the October 2011 Cover for aXis Magazine, featuring my buddy, Tiffany Martin (Radio DJ from The Monsters on Real Radio 104.1 and lead singer of the gnarly girls rock group Dollface) The shoot was set up at the UCF World of Beer, where the cover promoted their WOBtoberfest event coming up.
