Branding images for the singer-songwriter Cindy, shot in Los Angeles.
This was shot in Coney Island, New York. It was such a cold winter night but this couple's love for each other made me feel so warm.
Shot in Chinatown New York. It's funny because my model Raymond doesn't even smoke, so we had to bump a cigarette from a waiter who worked inside that restaurant and I later Photoshopped on some smoke.

This was taken in Palm Springs on the first music video I directed. We lit each candle one by one and the singer Jess was unable to move a single inch during that process. It was frightening yet exciting.
This image was a fashion look book for a New York based designer. I fell in love with the colour white against the model's skin tone and her elegant posture.
