by JoH
It’s a modern retelling of Little Women, in a web series/vlog format, and the creators wanted to do a clean shoot. ┬áThe series itself is light and funny, so I wanted to make sure there was an abundance of color and playful energy in all the shots.

Bootlegger Show Shoot

January 15, 2014
by JoH
I shot the production stills for Victoria’s first show, and when it came time for promo shots for her second, she came back to shoot with me again.  She had a very specific look in mind, and it was highly location dependent.  Because of the cold, blustery day the shoot lasted all of 30 minutes, but we left with gold.  *MUA credit – Jessica Jean Myers*

Promo Shoot: Snoof Riders

Having been tapped to shoot the promotional pictures for an upcoming science fiction comedy called Snoof Riders, I had a full day of studio shooting and a lot of fun getting creative with the team behind it.  The cast features Ash Catherwood, Alice Moran, and Rick Green – seen below both in and out of costume. Ash plays a cheesy rock star so of course, we had to shoot some pictures showcasing this hilarious side of his character.  An homage to Jim Morrison was an idea that popped up and it resulted in one of my favorite images from the shoot. Finally, what’s a rock star without some sexy ladies, am I right?

“Dairy-Free Love” Promo Shoot

December 9, 2011
by JoH
Doing this shoot was so awesome!  It was surreal to see the costume and make-up done.  And since the feel of the shoot was vintage, I thought a vintage finish to the shots would be awesome as well!
