I shoot a lot of different things in my life as a freelancer. I shoot food, travel, products, lifestyle, portraits, both in the commercial and editorial worlds. People always ask me, "If you could only shoot one thing" or "which do you love the most" and it's so hard to choose because each type of work makes my heart flutter in a different way. If my feet were held to the coals and I HAD to choose only one thing, I would choose the production lifestyle work like the images shown here.
It's so nice to take a concept, think about wardrobe, location, styling, mood and bring professionals into the picture who can take an idea and transform it into a reality. On this shoot I worked with models Xiaolynn and John in iconic Chinatown, Los Angeles. We shot at sunset (my favorite time to photograph) on a quiet mid-week evening. They were flirty and joyful and I love the palette that the lanterns of Chinatown give to the images.
