Vintage Looks with Laura Tipon

Model Laura Tipon asked me to shoot her around the old homes of Nevada City to help compliment her already vintage look. I am really happy with the results.

Milkbath photoshoot

I had a chance to do my first milkbath photoshoot this week with Rosie Petal and Samone Pierce. The shoot location was in a backyard in Folsom. While the temperatures were in the 90’s, the bath water was ice cold, so the models couldn’t stay under water too long.

Rosie shot with the Fujifilm X-T3 and the 56mm lens. Natural light with a 48 inch softbox using 2 layers of diffusion.

Portraits with Becca

I worked with bay area model Becca on some really special portraits over the weekend in Nevada City.

This image of Becca at the  Tulip Gardens  is now one of my favorite portraits that I have captured. Everything about it is special, just works and tells a story. This is the type of portraits i would love to create all day long.

After taking photos at the tulip garden, we headed down to the cemetery outside downtown Nevada City for some moody and emotional portraits.

More with Annaliese Nobile

Teen model, Annaliese asked me to do a photoshoot with her in Nevada City this week. The 3 hour shoot included a visit to the Holbrooke Hotel in Grass Valley before it was closed for renovation. We probably had the very last photoshoot in that hotel before the furniture was sold and the wallpaper removed.

We used natural light in the hotel, so that we would not bother the people running around the hallways purchasing every lamp, chair and bed in the building.
