Conde Nast Traveler, January '18

Happy new year! New York is being hit by a major snowstorm today, and these photos are reminding me of warmer times. Really warm times actually, because I shot them in New Orleans during a hot and humid week in October. Conde Nast Traveler sent me down south to shoot their Black Book section, which comes out in the magazine periodically.

Some of my favorite shots, below:

HelloFresh

I've been collaborating with HelloFresh for awhile now. I've especially loved shooting their Fresh Life insert that comes monthly with every order. 

Here's the latest, due to hit meal plans the week before Thanksgiving. It's huge, by the way, and is folded into eighths, so that you only see the full photo when you open it up to its 22x17" glory.

Yumble Kids

I served a stint as an SAT tutor back in the day, as well as a Kumon instructor, an afterschool daycare teacher, and a cashier at the Sanrio store in Southland Mall, Hayward. I know kids. And I love them! They're so funny and smart, recalling for us adult humans the world of play, carefreeness, and unselfconscious enthusiasm we applied to everything when we were their ages. So why has it taken so long for me to photograph them?! Good question. 

Yumble is the kids' version of Blue Apron, a site where overtaxed parents can order delicious healthy meals for their kids to enjoy and have everything show up on their doorsteps, ready to go. I am not yet a parent and I love to cook, but I imagine there will be a time when I too will be tempted by this company's proposition. 

I love their branding, by the way. It's so colorful and FUN! Some photos from recent shoots below.

T Magazine, September 10, 2017

Back in July, Carter Love at T: The New York Times Style Magazine contacted me and asked if I wanted to drive up to Sullivan County, NY, to shoot their upcoming Wanderlust column. Does one say no to T Magazine?!

The results, below. Check out the actual story here
