Azteca

Azteca

This Aztec inspired garment was created by Denver designer, Armando Guerra. The make-up was done by Denver make-up artist, Becky Laschanzky www.missbeckymakeupartist.com Shooting fashion is always great because I get to collaborate with other talented artists. The final images are always a surprise and I love that!

This portrait of up and coming model Kaitlyn Amick was taken last week as part of a portfolio shoot for local designer, Armando Guerra. Make-up was done by Becky Laschanzky www.missbeckymakeupartist.com who did a great job at creating this soft clean look.


Lifeless Beauty

Lifeless Beauty

I’ve always liked the haunting feel of this piece. I love the contrast of color and mood that’s portrayed in this almost “lifeless” pose. The dress and styling was done by artist, Armando Guerra back when we first met in 1999.


Birthday of a Muse

Birthday of a Muse

Today is the birthday of  my friend Felix. I met Felix for coffee today and we talked about photography, our history as friends and our futures. For years, Felix was my main model. Any time I wanted to shoot photos, he was there, ready and willing.  He was open to new ideas and often had […]

Tony

Tony

I shot this photo of Tony sometime last week. I used one large soft box to the left of him one smaller soft box to his right and a fill light behind me. I really like the expression on his face in this shot.


Social Construct

Social Construct

Gender is a subject that many people look at in terms of black and white. I have always questioned our societal views of what it means to male or female, masculine or feminine. Much of my work deals with the blurred lines between these ideas. I truly believe that gender is a social construction created […]


Saul

Saul

I’ve always liked this shoot with my friend Saul. He was very comfortable in front of the camera. I miss those old doors to my studio at The Other Side Arts. I often got lost in the layers of paint. As a matter of fact you may see that texture in a macro shot in […]


Lonnie

Lonnie

This is one of my early fashion pieces. I worked with designer, Armando Guerra on creating this haunting look of our friend and model, Lonnie. I’ve always love the severeness of this piece. The stark black and white of the garment as well as the lighting and makeup. There’s a certain level of desperation in […]


Julian

Julian

Julian is one of the best models I’ve ever worked with. He’s very professional and willing to try anything. We had him on his back in mud and he didn’t blink an eye. I love the vintage feel of this photo. The styling was done by local designer, Armando Guerra. If you’d like to schedule […]


Remigio

Remigio

Photo of the Day: This photo was chosen, in part, by a random selection by Felix Macias with the # 175. This photo of my partner, Remy was from our second photo shoot together. As I was editing the photo I thought about who helped to choose it. Felix is also a photographer who really […]


Auraze

Auraze

This shot was taken as part of a portfolio shoot I did with Denver designer, Armando Guerra in 2003. Armando worked for a junior wear company called Auraze in NYC for many years where he designed clothes for the “raver” scene. His designs were always colorful and unique. I love the collar and piping detail […]


Roy

Roy

Roy is a ballet dancer here in Denver. We did this shoot with Designer Armando Guerra. Armando designed this look which I ended up really loving.  Armando never ceases to amaze me. I love being surrounded by such talented artists.


Garrett

Garrett

This photo was taken as part of a “pride” issue of Metromode Magazine in 2007. It was Garrett’s first time modeling for me and he did an awesome job! I love how the natural light from the windows fall on his face.


Pride

Pride

Styled by Denver fashion designer Mondo Guerra for the 2007 gay pride issue of Metromode Magazine, this image was also exhibited in an international photography exhibit at the Center for Fine Art Photography last year.  The heightened contrast of the colorful, outstretched hand against the model’s ultra-pale complexion evokes a variety of interpretations.  Is the image political in […]


Graceful Tension

Graceful Tension

The tension and strain in Roy’s body display a subtle strength.  As I adjusted the color in this photograph, I stopped at this level because it all at once emphasized the intensity of this pose while revealing a soft vulnerability.  The image simultaneously captures a graceful moment before rising and a possibility that he will […]
