Shine On You Crazy Diamond

It's been a while since I've done a fun fashion editorial. The concept for this shoot was based around having lots of color and somewhat busy locations that would play off the wardrobe. I wanted the images to be loud, poppy, and bright. The crew did a fantastic job helping me bring this vision together, a real pleasure to get to play with such lovely and talented people. 

La Vie Boheme jewelry shoot

I loved the minimal nature of this shoot. The jewelry designer really wanted a soft, feminine, and organic feel. This was another collaboration with my friends at Farasha. A tiny crew including myself, the model, and two stylists. That's it. Natural light throughout.

Life in Mono

A recent fashion editorial and collaboration with my friend and hair stylist Chad Seale. KUED channel 7 documented this shoot as part of a feature they did on Chad for their show VERVE. Rachael Domingo did a fantastic job styling the wardrobe with assistance from Phoebe Davenport. The makeup duties were flawlessly executed by the incredibly talented Paula J Dahlberg. Gabriella Cale is a fresh face to watch, she is signed with NIYA management

Golden Girl mini-editorial

I've been wanting to photograph Savannah for a while. I felt like I needed to come up with a concept that was natural to her, something suitable. This shoot is all about warmth - the warm days of summer, the golden hour, and the natural feminine beauty. The landscape I chose provided a nice, non-distracting backdrop along with complimentary colors to the outfit from Free People. We did not work with a stylist of any kind, just the 2 of us. 

STRENGTH

"Phillip is truly an artist. I had been wanting to work with him for quite a while after having seen shots of his in a friend's portfolio, and then reviewing his website. The opportunity arose when I needed bridal photography prior to my wedding and unique fitness shots for my portfolio following my participation in a bodybuilding competition. I am SO glad he and I connected. His work is more than comparable to any spread you might see in Vogue or W magazine. Phillip thinks conceptually and seeks to tell a story with his art rather than taking a simply beautiful photograph (which he also does). I let him take the reigns with both shoots and the photos are so much more than I imagined they would be! I highly recommend him and his work as a standout addition to one's portfolio."
