Another lookbook season finished and I’m pretty proud of the work my team and I did. Thank you to all the models Bruna Tenorio, Kamila Hansen, Bridget Malcom and Daniella Braga. Make-up: Keiko Hiramoto and Hair: Antonio Diaz
This collection was for Kenneth Cole Suit Shop Photo Shoot. I rarely get to shoot menswear these days but it is one of my favorite things to shoot. Growing up with a grandfather who was a taylor, I had my first suit at 4 years old. If I could wear a suit during my photo shoots, I would. These days I find that sneakers and a sweatshirt is my uniform. I should up my game to something like this.
March 6th 2019, Shot at Canoe Studios, this was our first lookbook shoot outside of Carlisle in house photo studio. It gave new opportunities to use set walls and multiple models to give a more elevated look than just using seamless paper.
I must say, working at Kenneth Cole is an amazing experience. Even there eComm photo shoots are interesting and I love it when the client wants to try something new.
There is something soothing about shooting pin up photography. Its just me and the stylist and a room full of clothing to shoot. Its weird but I enjoy these jobs a lot.
March 20, 2019, This was one of my favorite photo shoots with Carlisle-Etcetera. Not only did we all have fun but I really had to challenge myself in a new location courtesy of Dot Studios.

April 15, 2019, In this photo shoot, we were tasked with a collection of clothes from the Fall 19 Carlisle Collection and Per Se to come up with several looks using only 10 pieces out of the entire collection. We called this the Perfect 10.

2014-2018, This is still one of my favorite collections of people who I had the privilege of photographing. In fact I think I’ll start this up again. Who is interest in a portrait session?
I was approached by an art director to do a photo shoot using a ring light but on still life products and accessories. I never had shot products in that manner so it seemed like a perfect opportunity to try something new.

Kenneth Cole Accessories Collateral Photo Shoot
When it comes to photography, still life is one of my favorites. Having control over lighting and composition while working with the different products that my clients ask me to shoot is such an amazing and challenging experience. This is a collection I shot with Kenneth Cole for their accessories line for one of their advertising campaigns.
November 3, 2018, I was always a fan of simple photography. Use of seamless paper is so simple but its use is so versatile and really brings out the subject. So when I had the opportunity to start using sets again, I forgot how compelling my images get and how the environment really enhances the model.

The idea was to have these gold paint swooshes to be the base of this lookbook collection.
September 20th 2018
One of my first lookbook photo shoots with Carlisle-Etcetera and this was our first exposure to a new line called E3, a modern chic brand for a younger customer.
Here is an archive of some of my favorite lookbook shots from over the past years. It’s good to look back and see how I have grown as a photographer just these past 5 years.
When I first started, I was getting a lot of jobs shooting jewelry without having much experience in the subject. But I felt confident in my ability knowing how to light and create interesting compositions. This was one of the first shoots I ever did on my own with Stone and Strand and Mimi So.

I managed to start shooting with Drinktrade.com, a marketplace for premium coffee roasters around the world. Sounds perfect to a coffee lover such as myself. But I got a chance to play around and shoot coffee bags of all things and this is what I came up with.
