Shooting Stories

Wild and Free

Sorry for being lazy and not updating my blog regularly. While this doesn't mean I'm not actively shooting.

I've been shooting portraits in LA for almost 2 years. Thanks to the fantastic resources offered by Los Angeles, I have the full support from models, MUAs and stylists, enjoy the great locations and always sunny weather, and more importantly, abundant shooting concepts that wait for my execution. 

This time, while actually this July, I did a short travel with Alison to the desert area in Palmdale, CA. Our concept was to create an image of an outcast in the wild desert, with nobody but herself, reflecting the meaning of life and destinations.   

The shooting only took an hour because we wanted to capture the perfect golden hour. And it turned out to be satisfying! Let me know what you guys think :)

Soul Capturer

I always ask myself, do I feel accomplished after all these fine works? The answer is: it depends, depends not only on the end results but the experience while working with the creative minds. 

I want to use my camera to freeze the perfect moment, and more importantly, to capture the soul. The souls of different people, so unique and subtle, are the fascinating things in my eyes. That's why I collaborated with Elissa for the second time, trying to know this person more and capture the different vibes from the last shot. 

The shoot was taken at her place, a beautiful house in San Clemente, CA. It took me 90 minutes driving there, but when I got there, the place itself told me it's worth it. 

We talked while shooting, so it was fast and productive for our second collaboration. The theme was "Summer Rewind". Please check the works here :)
