As a kid I loved playing the streets with my friends but, as an adult the police in Atlanta Police Department don't seem to like how I play these days, lol. I had about 10 mins of actually shooting before they were on location. While the office checked my ID he let me continue to shoot and he basically said just keep it clean. He said someone driving by complained, guess they never got their chance to shine, lol. I appreciated that the officer continued to let us shoot, but that only lasted for 5 mins or so before his boss showed up and said wrap it up. But in those 15 min we were done and later some of those shoot were published 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.

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.

6 hours of shopping, 4 hours of hair and makeup, 8 hours of shooting, and 14 hours of editing...I would definitely say it was worth every minute. Especially, after landing in two great magazines in the same month, (one magazine being international) with these images. This was my first time working with Make-Up Artist Hana Ali, Stylist Atyia Sewell, and model Amber Smith. Hana is a true Artist with her make-up in her hands and Atiya held nothing back to show her capabilities when it came to styling. Amber was one of the models I picked from an earlier casting and after speaking and informing her of what I was looking for, what the concept was and what I needed she was all in. Everyone truly did a killer job and I'm not sure if this shoot could have been any better. These images were accepted by 6 magazine, and the two I sent the images to were Ellements and Mist Magazine.

Check out the editorials below.

Simple yet effective! Llauryn Hendrix has a presence, look, body and smile that leaves you speechless every time. Her posing and attention to detail of what the photographer is trying to capture is impeccable. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with Llauryn the day she came to shoot with me, but I saw something else evolving and captured these images first, which was later published in Ellements Magazine. We still did the looks I had planned but I'm happy I took 10 minutes to knock this beauty look out as well.

I've learned over time not to box myself into one area or another, so I was stoked to do an Avant Garde shoot with model Crystal Gonzalez. After discussing our ideas and overall concept, we got to work. Allen Jones was on make-up and Maritza Barraza was on hair. Although Crystal Gonzalez is only 16, she has recently become a model to work with in the Atlanta, GA area and beyond. She has been featured in numerous magazines and publications and even walked in Paris during fashion week. Now it was my turn to capture her. Exactly one month from the day I shot her, our images were published. What makes it even more exciting, is that our work is published in Ellements Magazines, which is one of the magazines I had my sights on. #dontstop
