A gallery of the beautifully weird, the macabre, and the wonderful. A two week project, shot in abandoned places, in unknown locations. The photos spawned from the dark and emotional sides of my brain, fueled by models with similar visions. I am headed overseas for a couple of weeks, but upon my return, I will be releasing several of these images for print. I still have few more images from this shoot that I have to edit, that you will surely see pop up around these parts over the coming weeks.
This is the end of the beginning.

I haven’t been able to do anything creative on my own for some time now, so it was refreshing to get to collaborate with some amazing artists. Huge thanks to Photographer Allie Janish and HUGE thanks to Artist John Haley III for allowing us to use his unbelievable home for our shoot. I had a great time, and I just LOVE some of these images!

Another shoot with Brittni. I’d have to say this is one of my favorites! I LOVE shooting in the California light, and using all of the colors that exist here. It seems so much less bland that Denver for some reason. These are very different from our last shoot. I love the 1940′s feel to these. I think Brittni was born in the wrong era! In any case, enjoy this beautiful new set of photos!

I started out in photography as a graphic designer. As someone who LOVED art, and things that were dark, uncommon, different, awe inspiring. I found beauty in things that were avante guard and unique. I started shooting photos because I wanted to create art, and now I’m blessed to do it for a living. Part of what I do is pull inspiration from other artists, designers, photographers around me, and this week I had a chance to work with one of my favorite models, and collaborate to pay homage to one of our favorite artists – Brian Viveros. (www.brianmviveros.com)
“Mysterious sexy women, with their remarkable sensual eyes, and a cigarette in the corner of their mouths, became his trademark. These characters play their lustful roles, sprouted from the brain of the American artist Brian Viveros. His art is a unique mixture of different visual and artistic concepts, surrealism, role playing and some quite heavy pain fantasies. Like the ones where the women are hooked, tortured and bound, but somehow, even in these morbid scenes, he is capable of maintaining a decent dose of humor.”
Model Brittni Lynn and I put our own take on his art in a respectful homage to his work. It of course is not a direct copy, nor were we trying to, but we pulled the most beautiful pieces of his art out and applied it to our photo shoot. I really could not be happier with the results. It gave both Brittni and I chance to push ourselves artistically into a new area, and to me, that is truly what art is all about – pushing the limits of creativity.
I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do. I did not even watermark them because it would ruin the integrity of the images. If anyone would like copies of these images for print, please let me know. email@example.com
