Mr. Victor Lopez

Mr. Victor Lopez and I got together to shoot for his and my portfolio last month. Although the shoot isn't completely edited I am very happy with the outcome of it. Mr. Lopez was a pleasure to work with. He is so polite and respectful that I would have no issues working with him again. There will be more to come with the last image, the series is still being edited.


HDR Images

First off these type of images are WAY not my style. I had to do an HDR [High Dynamic Range] assignment for school. These are the products. Also take note that these are the first time I've attempted this type of shooting.

Mr. Gabriel Bustamante

I was sitting in Barnes and Noble the other day trying to get some ideas for another shoot and this idea came to me. So I'm scraping my mind trying to think of models I can use, and Gabe's name popped into my mind. Last time I used him was back before summer started and he did well then so I figured, "Why not just ask him". So I send him a text with my idea, asked him to shoot in 2 days, he agreed, and so it was finalized. I then texted Ms. Kaylee Renda; my MUA [Make-up Artist] I used for Ms. Danielle's shoot; and asked her if she'd be able to do the make-up. She agreed. We shot at Freestone Park on the tennis court, (We did another shoot in the same day.) at around 5:30 p.m.

Here is the series.

Mr. Chris Hunt

Mr. Chris Hunt is a former wrestler so hands down I knew he'd be a good addition to this series of muscular males. Every time we met to discuss something, and when we shot he came with a great attitude. He is very eager to do well and will succeed with whatever he wants to do. Thank you very much Mr. Hunt for your hard work, dedication, and positive attitude throughout. More images will be upload as they are completed.

Ad Replication

These two images are two separate models and photographers. Last year I had an assignment where I had to find an ad and replicate it. The first image is the actual ad. (It had to be scanned so the colors are off) The second image is my replication of the first. Unfortunately my file crashed just before completion. The upper text is all custom made in Adobe Illustrator, which took quite some time so non the less I was pretty bummed when I found out the file had been corrupted. But Ms. Chevon did a wonderful job with being prepared and coming to the shoot with the right state of mind. Thank you!

Mr. Jamal Musbah

Mr. Musbah and I sat down about a month ago to discuss how we were going to execute this shoot and get the most out of each other. In my opinion he had it way harder than I. He trained extensively, dieted HARD, and a day prior to the shoot, practically starved and dehydrated himself. That is the dedication that Mr. Musbah has. He is currently seeking agency representation. I am very glad to have shot with Jamal. He has proved himself as a model not just with me, but with the Mr. Carlos Arias (, as well as with other various photographers. Thank you very much Jamal for the hard work and dedication.

Mr. Wais Ahmadi

Mr. Ahmadi is an exceptional individual. He's got such a strong desire to succeed and really make something of himself. Moving to America four years ago from Afghanistan and not knowing English he has come a long way. He's such a genuine person that working with him is extremely easy. Mr. Ahmadi prepped for this shoot for a good 2-3 months. If you look at the images from the first shoot we did awhile back you'll see that he work extremely hard in the gym. He almost doesn't look like the same person. For those who are wondering what his tattoos mean; The one on his chest is "God" in Chinese and Arabic & the one on his side is a tribute to his mother who passed. It is her name. That is just one example of Mr. Ahmadi's respect for everyone and especially one who are close to him... Thank you Wais for being a great friend.

Ladies; He's single. Haha

More images of him will be put up as they are completed.

Mr. Gabriel Bustamante

I'm going to start posting some older shoots as well. These were taken back at the end of the school year. Mr. Bustamante really came through with this. He was given a last minuet notice and showed up before he had to go to school. Working with him was fun because he's such a talented model. He now has a few of images of himself in my portfolio. Thank you Mr. Gabriel Bustamante.

Ms. Rosina~Mae Designs

I remember when I received an email from a good friend in Illinois telling me about how I have to shoot with this very avant garde designer whose hair he's done for some time. So immediately I got in contact with her. Ms. Rosie [in the first image] and I started planning this shoot and when I came to Springfield we determined a date to shoot and went with it. On July 14th we all met at 901 Clocktower Salons at 5 a.m. to start doing hair and makeup. [Done by the amazing Mr. Aron Daves] We shot from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. so none-the-less it was a long day for us all. Working with Ms. Rosie was a great experience. I'm actually hoping to go to Chicago in the near future to work with this awesome individual. I'd like to extend a special thank you to my four models Luda, TaKenya, Jackie and Lyndsy. [I apologize if i butchered any of your names] Thank You, All of you.
