Published in Shuba Magazine

Its not everyday that I play with a octopus, but I did this night! Ok using a slimy octopus as a prop for a shoot isn't going to work for everyone but when you have a talented model that's willing to trust you and your ideas, you have to make it work...for everyone's sake. Hana our makeup artist created a beautiful yet simple face to go with the overall look of this wild session. Christa did a great job wiht her poses and the level of engagement is through the room. Collectively this was our first publication in Shuba Magazine as they are pretty new. Hopefully we can grace their pages again soon!

Publication in Ellements Magazine

So simple yet so sick! As I was grabbing attire at the store for another shoot, I saw this silver skirt, and I knew I had to create with it. It was the signature piece I wanted to use. I located the top in another store at a different time but I knew I wanted to use them together. I spoke with Muse Christa about the look and feel I wanted to capture and she was ready to go to work. Aj and I have a long lasting relationship and she knows how I like makeup to look for my editorial and she always kills. On the night we created it was no different. This editorial was displayed in Ellements Magaizne.

Nudes on the Mountain - NSFW

I'm all about getting a little dirty. On this adventure, myself Velvet Lanae and Elliott James, (fellow photographers) when to Arabia Mount outside of Atlanta and created some absolutely beautiful artistic nude shots with Model Deyanna. Just the night before we were all apart of an art show, selling our work together, but decided to get out and create new work together. Especially since Elliott was visiting from Mississippi.

Our model has only been at this modeling thing less than 6 months but make it look as though she started years ago. Velvet had worked with her prior to this session but neither Elliott or myself had. We all shoot different styles at time but we came together to assist and collaborate with each other. This was my first time visiting Arabia Mountain, but I wish I had gone earlier. We only spent about 2 hours out here, which is a fair amount of time to shoot, but not to explore all there is to see. I will be going back pretty soon. I have some BTS images below. I will share some of my captures soon.

Raw Artist Art Show

Let me tell you how great it was to be apart of the RAW Artist show. I was honored to be selected to be apart of such a great assortment of artist. The show included designers, photographers, sketcher, painters and more. I got the opportunity to meet and connect with fellow artist and showcase work with others I am already close to. I took this opportunity to display new work that wasn't seen as of yet and sell prints. Some of the individuals I have photographed, came out to support. Huge thank you to everyone that helped to make the art show a huge success.

Publication in Elements Magazine - Oct 2017

One place I love to hang out is at the is at the beach. It's also a place I love to shoot. Christa Lee and I wanted to get out of the city of Atlanta, GA and took a trip over to Jekyll Island, GA. It's a pretty unique place and anyone would love Driftwood Beach, which is where this publication was captured. This particular beach stays packed and quickly drew onlookers, even other photographers. If you visit the area be sure to try to find it! Christa was at home on the beach as I quickly found out. She even called some of her own shots she wanted me to capture.

Published in Elegant Magazine - July 207

It's always fun to break all the gear out and have a great session, but this time I wanted to include it in the editorial. I shoot with Christa Lee to bring this session to life. I love that she was able to get into the moment within the session and bring out both elegance and sensuality.

Take no losses...

I recently got a Synology 1815+ NAS (Network Attacted Storage) 8 bay system and I couldn't be happier with the results. My main goal was image backup, but this thing is far more that just a place to store images. Synology did a great job of creating a drive unit that is basically a server. You can upload, download, stream media, create shared users and more. I have a professional Dropbox account that I will be replacing by using this 1815+. There is no monthly fees to use Synology products. There are endless ways to use and configure this thing but the best part is I was up and running in 10 min. Seriously one of the easiest things I've ever used.
