Kendra Wilkinson Book Cover

Man I'm a lucky guy. I shot the book cover of fellow San Diegan and Playboy Playmate, Kendra Wilkinson. I did the shoot for my Art Director pal Michael Nagin at Simon and Schuster. Michael and I first collaborated together on Chelsea Handler's book. Hopefully some of our NYT Best Seller luck will rub off on Kendra, though I don't think she needs it, this girl is everywhere! The book is out in July so check it out.

David Guetta Mixmag Photo Shoot

Here's two covers I shot for Mixmag Brazil and Mixmag UK . I had the pleasure of working with superstar DJ David Guetta for one afternoon at the Mondrian hotel in West Hollywood. He's a really nice guy and was a lot of fun to work with.

Runner's World California Gatefold

Check out the March issue of Runner's World Magazine. I photographed the 3-page gatefold "Rave Run". It was shot at Torrey Pines State Natural Preserve, one of my favorite places in San Diego. Special thanks to my friend Brandon who had to run all over the place to get this one perfect shot!

The Hundreds Magazine Cover Shoot

Before I left for Japan this summer, my old pal Bobby Hundreds called to ask if I could shoot the cover story for a new magazine he was starting. It's a big honor to shoot the premiere issue of The Hundreds mag. Bobby and I have been friends since since the 7th grade and have worked together shooting photos and collaborating on stories for years. I'm really happy to see his label The Hundreds grow to be such a successful brand. Check out their blog, it's one of the best on the web: www.thehundreds.com

Fisheye portrait of Bob and I at The Hundreds Block Party

Bobby is cool and all, but what about cover girl Olivia Munn?? This girl is awesome and definitely knows a thing or two about posing. She was a real trooper, even crawling up a rickety ladder to the roof of the Hundreds' LA headquarters. She even risked life and limb walking on the roof in heels, a task most models couldn't do. Olivia and her styling crew were great to work with and made for a successful shoot, with no one falling off the roof.

Check out the wrap around back cover. That hobo on the ground is actually my Studio Manager Richy. Always sleeping on the job!!

NEW Website, NEW Blog!

So I've finally finished my new website. You will notice that I've taken out a lot of the bells and whistles of my old site to streamline and make it easy to view the most important thing, my pictures!

I went through almost 10 years of images to showcase a lot of my work that most people haven't seen.

Please check out this blog for news updates on what I'm up to. I'll also be updating it with behind the scenes of my shoots. In the meantime, here's a video clip from my shoot with pro skater Rob Dyrdek for Rides magazine.......
