Sharnie Fenn Version 2


Had my second photoshoot with Asia’s Next Top Model contestant Sharnie Fenn last night despite the looming danger of a massive typhoon headed our way. About halfway through the shoot, we wondered if we should continue, but thanks to the professionalism of dedication of my team, we soldiered on and managed to get some of the most amazing shots of Sharnie to date. This ordeal has taught me two things, 1. Surround yourself with competent, professional, passionate people. 2. The show must go on.

The Flexibility of DSLR in Medium Format package!

My Fujifilm GFX 100S arrived about a week ago and I wanted to share my experience using it on two professional shoots. Yes! while it is an extremely capable and flexible camera, it is not without it’s many quirks. The first being it’s wonky software that doesn’t seem to know if or how it wants to connect wirelessly to your mobile device. The second would be the Face Detect / Eye Detect Auto-Focus, I found that it seems to constantly want to turn itself off.

Profoto Official Support

I was recently contacted by Profoto’s head office in Stockholm about them taking over the technical support of Profoto User’s Group page I created on Facebook.
This is a huge honor to have Profoto officially support my page.
What this means is, any questions concerning Profoto’s products will be answered accurately and directly by Profoto’s tech staff and engineers.
This is huge! And I’m ecstatic to have their support.


Congratulations to photographer Tyler Mitchell who became the first black photographer EVER, in Vogue’s 126 year history to shoot the cover.
This historical change came about because Beyoncé (who was given complete control over the issue, including the cover), used her influence to demand it.
Even if you’ve never purchased an issue of Vogue in your life, please buy this September’s issue to show support for the change. Let’s also make this the best sold issue in Vogue’s 126 year history.

Mighty Mina Martinez

Had an absolutely AMAZING photoshoot with this sexy little powerhouse the other day.
Mina Martinez is truly a force to be reckoned with.
Multitalented, down-to-earth, intelligent, cool-headed, movitivated, ambitious, gorgeous are just a few of the words that come to mind while working with this young lady (and trust me I could go on and on).
The shots we got from this shoot are absolutely stunning!
Can’t wait to share them with the world.
For now, you just have to settle for this quick out-of-camera JPEG.
But even looking at such a low-resolution JPEG, you can see this shoot was EPIC!

Gorgeous Hungarian Model – Lilla Primmer by em.

God I love my job! Especially when it results in having days like this where everyone is a team player and we are all having a good time while achieving spectacular results. Had the pleasure of shooting with Hungarian Beauty Lilla Primmer this past weekend and we had a blast!!! Of course shooting with the new Fujifilm GFX 50S takes everything to a whole new level. As with any Medium Format camera, it makes you slow down and really think about what is in front of your lens before pressing the shutter button. It not only brings back the “art” of photography, it brings back the “joy” of it as well. I don’t just feel like I’m painstakingly photographing my subject, I actually feel like I’m creating works of art. That’s a great feeling to have on a photoshoot (especially in front of a client). I’ve shot almost every Medium Format camera system on the planet, but I don’t recall any of them ever being this much fun.
