Graduate Krystle E. // Class of 2014 @ CSULB

I had the pleasure of meeting my newest friend Krystle through my close friend Justin, who is her boyfriend. Justin trusted me with taking picture for Krystle, so he bought these images as a gift for her. I was very happy he asked me to shoot! They also stopped by the nail shop I work at and got their nails done too. I can’t wait to attend Krystle’s graduation!

"Fatality" - iMUTE Magazine 2014 - Webitorial

I had a blast shooting this editorial because my friend, Eugenie Grey of Feral Creature was able to style for me! She has an amazing style and great sense of fashion! Not only that she knew the model before hand too and she loves Courtney’s look! I wanted more dark and minimalistic style for this shoot with a pop of color and I thought it fit very well with Courtney of Photogenics LA. It was a pleasure working with Courtney, very easy to work and she definitely knew what she was doing. 

I love that my hairstylist Eddie always has idea on what to do with the hair! So glad that I could trust him! Anyways check out the photos here or just actually view it on ‘s website!

Anthony Franco - Kode Magazine ISSUE KODE 1

I have had the pleasure to shoot local Los Angeles Fashion Designer Anthony Franco for Kode Magazine's first new issue.  He was such an amazing guy and really outgoing. His clothes are amazing and his men's collection is amazing. I really loved his suits! Mr. Franco is a really funny guy, so it was really fun to photograph him in pictures.

Feral Creature - March

March was great with blogger Eugenie of Feral Creature this month. Spring is soon to end and Summer is beginning, so we’ve been shooting at the beach and she’s been showing off some more skin, in a good way though! A lot skirts, dresses, and some swimwear! They’re really amazing and edgy stuff for the Summer season coming up but still appropriate to this crazy bi-polar LA weather. Eugenie definitely makes edgy clothes casual and I love it!

Vanity Room - March

I had the pleasure of shooting fashion blogger Dianna of Vanity Room this month. Dianna is a very nice and cute girl. Her style and fashion sense is really great. So for this shoot it was really boho-esque because of all the festivals that’s coming up, so she wanted to dress for the occasions. 

Anyways just take a look at the awesome outfits!

ELECTRIC HAZE - FACTICE MAGAZINE

My 2nd published editorial of the year! It feels amazing to be able work with Photogenics LA, they’re probably my favorite agency so far. Coming back from Georgia, I really wanted to shoot again. So as soon as I landed, I did not hesitate to contact and start a testing relationship with Photogenics! I believe my work has really improved from my trip to Georgia. It really test my skills and show what I’ve learned since I left. It’s amazing what I can do now, but I’ve been working hard to get here, and I’m still learning as I shadow along my mentor Sylvia

I’m truly proud to be published on Factice Magazine. For this shoot, I really loved China Town lights. The neon colors were just amazing as I first saw them when I was kid. Shooting Gabriel was a breeze, he took direction very well and my team was amazing. It was my first time working with everyone, and I’m glad it turn out just awesome.

Brian Dublin

I love when friends come and visit from far away. My friend, Brian Dublin is a local singer songwriter in San Jose, CA. I went up there early this year but didn’t have a chance to hangout with him because I told him last minute where to meet up. It’s great that he took a trip down to So Cal though. I knew that he was staying in Long Beach, which is where I reside. So we had to hangout, and I knew that he doesn’t have any portraits of him, so on flyers he would use Instagram Selfies. I definitely took the opportunity to take pictures for him. 

Brian is a really fun and chill dude. Always a pleasure to photograph people who are just calm and relaxed in front of the camera.

Be sure to check out his amazing music on youtube

February - Feral Creature

It was so great coming back to California and shooting familiar faces again. It was so amazing to see Eugenie of Feral Creature, after a whole month of not shooting her, I felt like I was losing my touch! So as soon as I landed in California I told her immediately we need to plan a day to shoot! 

Slowly we’ve both became very busy with our business! I’m so glad that we have both seen each other grow as creatives. Feral Creature’s style is hard to describe but it seems to be that edgy, funky, and chic look. She’s definitely out of the ordinary. There’s nothing that she wouldn’t be able to pull off.

But here are some pictures from our month February!

A brief thank you note.

There’s nothing but excitement and adventurous moments during this journey. I cannot explain the joy that I had last year, but I have to say, if it wasn’t for the people who enjoy my work, I definitely wouldn’t be motivated to do the things I do. Getting feedback and admiration, I have to say that’s probably the best part about this whole job. I love when I have clients who understand the creativity of this career and understand the work of it. There’s no way to describe how I feel when I get that response when people see my work. It’s a heartfelt feeling when people love my photography. But I know there’s much more to do to pursue what I’m doing. I’m still young in the game but you know, if I pave my path in the right direction I will surely get to where I need to be.  

I want to thank those who have followed my work for a long time and see my progress! I’ve enjoyed my journey as a photographer so far and I’m happy to see myself improve. There’s so much more to learn, but I’m really happy that I could make this happen for myself. From shooting weird shit to actually photographing absolutely wonderful people and things.  I’ve started my year right and hopefully much more will be coming my way. Everyday is an improvement and as I learn more the better things will become!

To all the people I’ve worked with in the past, thank you! You guys are amazing, I hope we all progress and move forward with our choice in life! We creatives do so much to get what we want. Our motivation is what get us through the day. So I appreciate that you guys gave me the opportunity to work with you and join your creation! Without you guys, what is there for me to photograph? THANK YOU SO MUCH! 

Here are some old photos to recap my journey so far:

Chinatown Nights

Ever since I came back to California I’ve been just shooting bloggers and going to meetings with a few people but mostly at home editing and replying to emails. But I did reach out to one of the agencies here in LA, Photogenics Media, and was able to book a model for the weekend. So I had to go location scout for a place to shoot! 


My friend Titus does thing where he only updates his Facebook profile picture once a year and we were supposed to shoot for his profile picture awhile back. Since I wasn’t able to shoot it, I decided to ask him if he wanted to location scout with me and take photos in Chinatown at night. So now the outcome is that he has a choice of many, for his profile picture and I have locations where I exactly want to shoot.
