I recently shot some catalog work for a scarf company out of Nepal based in Boston. It was one of my first catalog type shoots. Catalog photos are tough because you want consistency but its hard to decide on one light set up that you are going to use the entire time. As well as at the end of the day the final photos are going to be used on the web or in print so they need to be edited very nicely. Here are a few of my favorite images. Laura K did make up.
The scarf company will have a website up soon that I will share with you.
I recently was blessed to get to take an editorial portrait for 12 loaves magazine. At the Austin ARCH the center for the homeless. The Austin Portrait was focusing on Elena Davis a former model. Here is the right up from Real Issues magazine Here is the I am Waters Website
“HOUSTON — A former model is using the images of local veterans to help fight poverty and homelessness.
Elena Davis’ face has graced the cover and pages of some of the world’s top fashion magazines but now she’s behind the lens and the woman behind I Am Waters.
The Houston-based organization delivers bottled water to homeless people across America.
She was in Houston Thursday taking photos of veterans who are currently staying at the Midtown Terrace. The Midtown Terrace is run by the U.S. Vets Houston.
“How do you justify having someone who has fought for our country to be homeless?” Davis said. “There are a lot of preconceived notions as to who the homeless are, so we photograph the homeless and we use those images on our website, on our community outreach.”
It’s a passion for the former model. Davis said she grew up nearly homeless herself.
“I think it’s interesting because I don’t look like where I came from, and so I think people are always kind of surprised,” she said.
And that’s the point. Davis said the homeless aren’t who you think they are.
And through I Am Waters she hopes to educate and hydrate people.”

Me and Laura Kaululaau did a shoot on Monday focusing on Beauty. Got to try a lot of different things with my lighting. The model was great Sara. I tryed a couple of new portrait lighting techniques along with a new backdrop. I really like the color i ended up with it looks great against most peoples skin. What do you think?
