Had the honor to work with the Fourlarks team again for their new show "Undine" exploring the myth of the mermaid. Working with these guys is consistently the highlight of my year.
Strike a pose. Caught these ladies opening for Korn and loved it so much I had to give them their own post.
Dream. Come. True.
I'm lucky my gear and I survived this show...

I hope I never stop shooting this festival.
Had the chance to hang out with Tash Sultana during her sound check and performance at The Echo in Echo Park, Los Angeles.
I was lucky enough to be invited back to shoot at South By Southwest again for the 2017 festival. Here's a collection of my favorite shots across three days of amazing music.
Last month I finally had the chance to take my first trip to an Asian country. Japan has been on my shortlist for a while now and it did not disappoint. I've never been to a country where the past meets the future like it does in Tokyo. The whole country is immaculate and the people are unbelievably polite. The following images document my travels through Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Miyajima and Kamakura.
Last September I saw "The Temptation of St. Antony" purely by chance in downtown Los Angeles. A close friend had recommended I come along with her and it was honestly one of the most incredible pieces of live theater I had ever seen. I was so blown away that I immediately contacted the company, Fourlarks, to say that if there was ever anything I could do to collaborate with them as a photographer in the future I would absolutely love to. Then last June I got an email out of nowhere from one of the directors saying they were re-running The Temptation of St. Antony this year and they would love for me to come shoot some promotional material. The images below are the result of an amazing day of collaboration between myself, the directors, and the cast of the show. It was hands down my favorite shoot of the whole year.
Last September I worked as a camera assistant on a music video for a band called Icon For Hire. I worked with some really fantastic people and have continued to work with this same crew throughout 2016. The band was so happy with this first music video they asked the same crew to come back to shoot a second video. This time however the cinematographer - now a good friend of mine - asked me to come shoot stills. I have to say I was pretty amazed by what this small crew had put together on such a limited budget and it was really an awesome setting to shoot in. Icon For Hire was really happy with the work we all did and have consequently hired me for another photo shoot with them this September so keep an eye for that!
