Had a great team trek up to Topanga on Sunday. My favorite stylist Melinda Tarbell, Prop Extraordinare Heather Williamson, Hair and Makeup wonder Jen Fiamengo, Models Tova Thomas from Vision, her gorgeous daughter Painter, Ella and Jayden from Zuri, my lovely right and left hands Myles, Daylin, and Keith. Thank you to everyone for sticking out the heat, the hike, and making some beautiful images. To be up soon on the site, I promise.

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the Biggest Loser Winners in New York a few months back. Olivia Ward and her sister-teammate, Hannah Curlee lost a combined 249 lbs between the two of them. It was one of the most inspiring shoots I had been on in awhile. Their smiles were infectious. I couldn't stop congratulating them and feeling so proud of what they had accomplished. They looked so beautiful, radiant, and confident on that rooftop in Brooklyn.

I'm super happy to be a part of a group show at one of my favorite galleries, 210 Art Space in Laguna. I've showed there before, curated a show this past spring, and this time around I'm doing a collaboration piece with artist Peter Stow. The mixed medium show is a pairing of male and female artists working together on one piece. In most instances, a photographer submitting a photograph, and handing the image over to another artist (of the opposite sex in this instance) for them to elaborate on how they see fit. The idea came from a very successful show we did in honor of a dear friend of mine that past away, Jeff Anderson. Being a fan of Basquiat and Warhol, and the collaborations they would work on, we did a tribute show of images that had been photographed of Jeff, and then rendered by other artists who knew him well. The theme lives on with the Girls vs. Boys show, opening next weekend at the Artists for Tomorrow Gallery. If you're in the area, definitely stop by, it will be a feast for your eyes.
