Still a Better Love Story
David and I have a unique relationship as friends and colleagues in a way. We both learn a little more about modeling and portrait photography every time we shoot together.
Lei during a visit. Being a dancer, she can express emotion throughout her body with ease, while others perhaps fight a lot internally.
In the Waiting Room
Heather and Milly, two models from South Korea. They wait patiently for the photographer to take the picture. I think he's already taken it, though.
The Mist Reveals
In the middle of a dangerous stretch of road stood an Akino in the mist.
A twilight shoot, the time not the movie.
Candace under the UHH dorms bridge. That place has seen many photoshoots.
To those girls that stop us simple men in our tracks with that one look. Cheers, Minji :)
A shoot with Ziza as we experimented with different ways to light. This was taken on a hill outside an airport.
Sympathy for the Devil
Kelsey and I have known each other since Preschool, though I don't think we remember those years particularly well. The man has good taste.
Perhaps more of a conceptual shot. Leigh is here, standing in a suit with a bright, pink balloon.
Shio, an amazing model. I wish I had more of a chance to shoot her. A very cute girl with a gaze that could hypnotize you.
Would you approach KZ?
One of the most sweetest and beautiful girls I've had the pleasure of shooting, Minji is seen here eluding all who chase after her.
Against the Flow
Lovely Risa during a shoot in Hawai'i.
Hear Lei roar.
Kunzang, a master of expression and beauty. This shoot was on a chilly night, perhaps ripe with murder?
Misato has such a soft look that works well in so many situations. Her eyes, though, piercing.
Perhaps my favorite photograph taken. This was a raw shoot, in the pouring rain while lying on the filthy dirt. It was.... awesome.
This beautiful girl, Zia, I have so much respect for.
Hawaiian leaders during protocol.
It's funny what triggers some shoots. This was after we found a giant, pink wall around town.
Adorable Stephanie, in her colorful Yukata.
During our second shoot, I asked Misato to lay down near a drop and a waterfall. This girl who knew nothing of me did it without hesitation. Damn <3
Ballet in the Fog
Sara's tenacity as a dancer has always attracted me and my camera. Every shoot is something amazing.
The Wild Orchid
Stephanie delivering emotion while contrasted with the cool and energetic blues and purples.
I love it. David mid-sentence.
Lei is untamable, honey badger status.
Kelsey and Derrick after finally finishing our duties at a wedding!
Sunny as F*#K
During a shoot with Hyojoon while we test out different ways to shoot with flash under thick sunlight.
They say they are most vivid in the rain.
The train system in Hong Kong is quite good. 3 minutes between each train, yet some days it seems like too long.
Shoes Made for Walking
My first shoot with Zia was an eye opener. She had much experience as a model and I had to learn just as quick as she could teach me.
Akino's original cosplay, female Shinpachi as seen on the Gintama movie.
Leigh unwilling to give Tammy back her balloon.
Tammy with her lovable expressions.
Like Slipping into a Warm Bath
Don't move, Leigh. There's a mosquito on your neck. KZ's got it.
A jump in heels! Zia landed it. Put that on your resumè.
Count Me Instead of Sheep
Sara is the Red Queen. She rules her kingdom with elegance, grace, and bloodshed.
