When someone says to me that they have a great friend they want photographed, I’m always game, but it always works better when the person getting photographed is a model. By trade, Dae is not a model, but you’d never know it from the photos, attitude and fun that she brought to the studio. Hopefully I’ve captured some of that here to share with you, because for me it was a beautiful day to be sure.


The girl next door is an understatement for Jane and with enthusiasm she undertook trying to salute the flag, the military and the general beauty of ‘Merica. Enjoy the photos and look for more from Jane throughout the site.

Maybe you’ve heard the name Bryiana Noelle and maybe you haven’t; but if you read Playboy (or just look at the pictures) you’ve seen and probably enjoyed her beauty and will recognize her as the September 2013 Playmate of the Month.

Shooting with Bryianna back in July was a real treat. You honestly can’t imagine a sweeter, more down to earth individual. Not to mention talented and beautiful. She knows what looks good and works hard to get the best results possible. We shot in our downtown San Jose studio with a combination of natural light and strobes and regardless of what was asked Bryianna delivered. Hopefully you will enjoy our images as much as we enjoyed working with her.

And, if you’ve ever wondered if you’ve got what it takes – drop us a line and lets work together to see how good your image can be.

We’ve shot Samantha as a redhead and then again as a blonde. By now you probably know that she’s one of our favorites and with photos like this you can probably see why! And, we’ve said it before – the results are based on good looks, hard work, and the best attitude you can imagine.

When it came time to find a model for a test shoot that might be used in a perfume advertisement, Agnes showed up and helped define

What can you say about a woman with such beautiful eyes and depth. Agnes brought her A-game to our shoot together and really produced some great work. Her super-tiny frame posed well and she brought ideas, concepts, wardrobe and a willingness to deliver some great results.

If you’re looking for someone to take your look to the next level, Agnes might just be the right person for you. Her resume is long, distinguished and complete with modeling and acting as well as a few beauty titles in her past.

If nothing else, each shoot is unique. Shooting recently with Johannie was very unique for two distinct reasons – attitude and artistic license. Johannie came with a body full of tattoos, as well as a raw beauty that came across over and over again. She also brought along a willingness to explore all sides of herself with no self-consciousness or ego. It was a wonderful shoot and the results speak for themselves.

However, while shooting “my art of her art” I found myself wondering how much credit really goes to the tattoo artist? Honestly, one you shoot someone with less obvious ink it’s easy to decide – the model is beautiful and our job is to capture that beauty in as natural and believable fashion as possible. When someone comes in holding their beautiful canvas covered with an artistic vision from someone else who is really the artist here?

I have my thoughts… and if you have ink of your own and want to see how we can create art from your art, drop us a line.

Samantha has been in front of my camera a few times now and she’s always bringing something new with her – for this shoot is was beautiful blonde hair. Check out other parts of the portfolio to see some of the earlier shoots, including my personal favorite, our first, when she brought her beautiful red hair and some spunk that turned out some outstanding results.

Like that first shoot, this second shoot produced some work to be proud of, too, and it should be obvious in these photos. Her contagious personality, spunk, and desire to produce some quality results shows so well that you’re sure to want to see more.

Some of you are probably already wondering what makes a great shoot and why some people stand out over others when they’re in front of the camera. For the most part it’s about their attitude. Bringing the best that they can be and putting themselves out there for the sake of the image. Giving 110% every single shot. It’s that attitude, and not just a pretty face, that makes a model more than just good. The right attitude makes a model great.

When we first met Samantha it’s obvious what came to mind. Red. Fire. Red. Hot. That’s it, Samantha showed up to our first shoot looking red hot and quickly showed that she was mentally prepared and physically capable of producing some outstanding results. We shot nearly the entire day, at our San Francisco studio and throughout the City and the results really speak for themselves. Pick your favorite or love them all.

What stands out from this shoot and what will be remembered for a long time to come is how well Samantha took direction, working steadfastly to get the best results possible. She has the drive and the ambition and as you can see from this shoot and the Blonde Samantha, her work is outstanding.
