M, Bicycle II

The second bicycle shoot with M was a mostly fashion shoot out in the same park where I shot Julia. M is, honestly, just gorgeous. Such a fan of hers.

Care, Atalaya

On our trip to Myrtle Beach, one of the plans was to find a nice stretch of deserted beach where we could shoot freely. Did a little searching and found Huntington Beach State Park. When we got there, it was…

Care, House of Mirrors

After getting to Myrtle Beach and getting some food in our bellies, our first stop (the one that was a definite plan) was the Mirror Maze. Care had a dress she wanted to shoot with inside and it worked out…

Care, Candy Store

After the House of Mirrors, Care and I stopped into a candy store for some treats and a few photos.

Care, Arcade

Closing out our first day at the beach, we went to a local arcade on the strip for some shots. Funny story: the first thing that Care tries out is one of those big prize grab machines. And she manages…

Sierra, Bicycle I

Out with Sierra on a mostly deserted road on the southeast side of Columbia, on one incredibly hot day.

Carrie, Parks + Recreation

The first set with Carrie. We took a few very casual shots before this with her in another outfit but it didn’t quite pull together into a workable set. Carrie has phenomenal eyes. Just amazing. And thankfully the dress didn’t…

Kristina, Art

This fantastic piece of art is sadly adorning the ramp to an overpass in a part of town that doesn’t get a ton of traffic. I always thought it was great and wanted to place Kristina against it to make…

Emma, Laundromat

A short little fashion set at a nearby open-air laundromat on the edges of Ybor.

Catrina, Little Havana

I had wanted to shoot near the metro area but mostly around Little Havana. So after knocking out a few shots, we headed over there for the bulk of the shoot.

Michelle, SoFi

Michelle was a friend of a friend. I thought she was beautiful and she wanted to shoot so we did. Would’ve like to have shot her more than just the once. So for this outing, we planned to just shoot…

Lakota, Cowgirl I

The first of two sets we shot. Lakota knew of this location and had shot there previously. I showed up without seeing it beforehand and I have to say, for what I envisioned shooting, it really couldn’t have been more…

Katrina, NoDa

Katrina may have been the first model I shot when I came back to the states and after recuperating from dengue fever which I had contracted in Costa Rica. I had been out of commission for a while and was…

Samanda, Cowgirl

Really didn’t know there would be horses where we were going to be shooting on that day. Yet, there they were which worked out really well since Samanda wanted to do a whole cowgirl shoot.

Mafé, Condo I

To date, this was the only time I’ve shot both the mother and daughter. Mafé is gorgeous. Throughout the shoot, whichever subject I was shooting, the other helped with style and details. And both of her daughters, Vanessa and Isabel…

Andy, Jaco

I can’t think of a time when my mood wasn’t elevated being around Andy. Amazing human. And sweet mother of pearl, she’s beautiful.

Taty, Monastery

Taty was a friend of a friend and just a great person. I always thought she was just beautiful and I don’t remember if she reached out to me or if I reached out to her but she planned the…

Ashley, Urban Jungle Girl

This was on the north side of the beach. Favorite shots? Holding out the peace sign and the two at the end with the solid stance and the building behind.

Ashley, The Delores

Our first shoot together was actually part of a larger project I had planned that was never finished. There are a number of buildings scattered throughout South Beach bearing formal names (historically speaking) of women. So for this, I had…

Anastasia, The Hotel

For our second shoot, Anastasia had recommended this classic hotel in Palm Beach which turned out to be perfect. These were shot around the hotel before shooting indoors.

Kesley, Big Texas

When I traveled across the country in 2009, I made plans somewhere along the way to shoot with Kesley. Having worked together in South Beach, I knew photographing her would result in photos I would be pleased with. To this…

Karol, Miami II

The second shoot with Karol was pretty much the first shoot all over again. And I’m not sure why I did it like that because there were plenty of shots from the first shoot (both sets) that came out great.…

Karol, Miami

I have no recollection how it came to be that I would shoot Karol at her apartment in Miami, but I was instantly sold on her. She chose the outfit for this shoot and, clearly, I was a fan of…

Anastasia, Portraits in Green

From our first shoot, this was the only other set we shot where Anastasia remained clothed. This was such a brief set, I’m not even sure why we shot it except maybe because she wanted photos in green?

Anastasia, Black Dress

When I look back at the photos from this day, I don’t know what I was doing. We were all over the place in terms of wardrobe. Typically, I have models wear one or two different outfits and strip out…

Katja, Park

The last set of the day on the last day of shooting with Katja. It would be almost a decade later before we’d shoot again. Shot in Flamingo Park in South Beach

Acacia + Ana, South Beach II

We had decided we wanted to shoot Espanola Way and Washington Ave after Lincoln Road. Along the way, we stopped in front of an apartment building, they sat on some stranger’s motorcycle, and we wandered into a back alley. The…

Acacia + Ana, Lincoln Road

The people? They were everywhere. Note that only a select number of photos from the set are shown here. There are 80+ photos in the set, available in the download.

Katja, Dressed

I remember being completely struck by Katja’s eyes and just her overall look in general. I suppose that’s why I couldn’t seem to get her out of that chair nor even consider any kind of composition in the photos. I…
