Here is a new photograph for a sports apparel photo shoot I was working on of Yogi Gita Rose.
I worked with the nonprofit Swords to Plowshares to photograph 13 female veterans for a show in San Francisco at Zendesk to create a greater awareness of our veterans within the bay area. Here are all the photos from the series.
Tom Sanders creates winery commercials and films for clients all over the wine country.
I was running an errand today and I saw a billboard that I photographed for Bay 101 casino late last year. I've done a handful of photo shoots that have ended up on billboards. Always cool to see my work in print.
I recently photographed fitness trainer Danielle Duffy. I love photographing athletes as they have to be themselves and there is not too much art direction involved.
I photographed Khari Stevens yesterday, he is an international professional soccer player. I have been creating new athlete advertising portraits intermixing projections onto the pro athletes.
I recently shot an advertising campaign for Bay 101 Casino in northern California capturing their new Sutter's Gaming and Bistro Lounge. My job was to capture authentic emotions while incorporating their new space into the photographs.
I photograph predominantly people and every once in a while I get to shoot product. Here is a state of the art Avaya videophone designed by the company Whipsaw that I recently photographed.
Over the last year I traveled to several Belmont Village Senior Living communities around the country photographing real residents within their communities. Here are a few of my favorite photographs from the photo shoots in San Jose, CA, Houston, TX, and San Diego, CA. It was my job to capture the warmth, care, happiness, and authenticity of their communities while incorporating the environment.
Here is a recent photo shoot I did of Ahimsa Hodari fitness trainer and former collegiate Stanford track star. I photographer her in a few different styles as I want to capture her both in action and in the greek sculpture style.
Over the last 10 months I traveled the country photographing hundreds of our aging veterans from every American war in 22 different cities. I also got to photograph over 20 grape growers for Bedrock Wine Co. Both of these jobs were dream jobs for me. To be able to preserve history through art and create a greater appreciation for our veterans and to hang out on vineyards and be outdoors with farmers was spectacular. Especially when the grape grower gave me a bottle of wine from their vineyard). Here is a collection of some of my favorite grape grower photographs from the Bedrock Wine Co. series.
I photographed a bunch of pro and amateur fighters for a fighting gym over the weekend. I have been loving using my strobe light projector casting intense textures and shapes on to my subjects to add another level of energy. @superjjambrose thanks man! #MMA #ufc @ufc @ufc.tv @ufc_official_page #hex @hexfs @mmatalk #fighters #colorphotography
I photographed Richard and his wife a few years ago for a show in Sunnyvale, CA of couples that had been married for more then 50 years. Richard and his wife were married for 63 years. I was dropping of a framed print for him today as he lost his wife a few months ago and he wanted a large photograph of them to hang up in his room to commemorate their love.
I received an email this morning from “Artnet News” about Shepard Fairey selling his home. It reminded me of the photo shoot I had with him nine years ago...
I photographed the soft spoken Shepard Fairey and his family in his garage in 2007 for Complex Magazine very early in my career. Had I photographed him now, I would of photographed him much differently. He only gave me 20 minutes to photograph him which is common to have limited time when photographing a celebrity. I think he gave me limited time because he is constantly working on his art and would rather be creating then be put in the spotlight. He had a hip house in the Hollywood hills but it was still just a house. I wanted to photograph him in an environment that said a little bit more about who he was… and still is. His garage said the most about his personality as it was used as an art studio and he had projects hanging all over the walls and there were apprentices painting his posters in his driveway. A true artist is always creating no matter where they are in my opinion. It made sense to include as his family int he portrait as they were all quite immersed into Obey.Funny thing, I did not know why he was such a big deal when I photographed him. Now you can buy Obey clothing attire and see his artwork all over the world.
