Merethe Hopland

leave a comment »

The wonderful Joanna at Fashion Gone Rogue recently ran some of my shots of Merethe Hopland. These are some of my favorite shots I’ve done of a model in a while. I was the first to shoot her with the new haircut (well, kinda… it was cut while shooting an editorial so… kinda 2nd). Being first I felt I should make iconic images of her that could stay with her as she starts booking work and bigger campaigns. We literally only had 4 hours to shoot because she had to fly to Milan for a job that afternoon. Since then she has shot with a few others – I hope they can keep her momentum going and I really hope these do a lot of good for her career!

Ongoing Retraining

leave a comment »

I’ve continued to spend the past few days retraining my eyes to look at things differently. I’m using documentary style of photography in my spare time to establish a new way of looking at luxury, fashion, wealth, life, humanity, etc…

This has been a great exercise – I am finding my personal weaknesses and strengths. I’m coming up with new ways to think and see; and I have completely new ideas that will make my work much more exciting to my fans, my clients and their clients.

Enjoy:

A great week

I’ve completed some fun personal projects. The shots below were all part of work completed in the past 4 days:

I’ve been working with some new people, and I worked with a few people I haven’t seen in a while. My work is starting to breathe differently and it’s feeling stronger than ever before. After being told some insanely retarded ideas, I’ve started to move more toward the Creative Director/Photographer role now and will be presenting that work in the coming year. In the meantime, I’ll be looking for clients, filmmakers, musicians, artists and others to help em achieve my visions… and of course I’ll still be shooting my personal projects and for clients as well!

Thanks for following!

Inspired by Blogs

leave a comment »


This piece is inspired by some things I’me seeing run around blogs. Some elements (the white dots) are based on the work of other artists while the digital cutting is based off general web techniques for collage and old sci-fi posters/movies.
