SETH & ASHE MEYERS for MAISONETTE

As an expecting father, I had a blast shooting Seth Meyers and his son Ashe for a fun Father’s Day shoot with Maisonette. First, let me say that Seth did a great job in front of the camera – no surprises there. But I have to also say that Ashe (and Frisbee the dog) were 100% amazing for the entire shoot. Ashe didn’t even take a bathroom break (or at least none that we know of). Read the full story HERE. Thanks to Jessica and Phoebe at Maisonette

BBOY BEHIND THE SCENES

In June, I traveled to Korea to see a good friend open his exhibition (Chong Gon Byun). While I was in Seoul, I connected with an amazing group of BBoy dancers called Last4One. Total bunch of characters with amazing skills. These guys are incredibly graceful yet very powerful. I loved finding out that Last4One performed for Hillary Clinton during a recent visit to Korea. Born out of NYC in the 70s with Black and Puerto Rican youths, B-boying is wildly popular in South Korea.
 
Here is a behind-the-scenes video that we shot on an iPhone

PS 261 // HERITAGE DAY

Recently, I was invited to visit with Mrs. Scarborough’s class for Heritage Day. I had the opportunity to photograph each student and talk with them a bit about photography. It was great to see such a mix of cultural ethnicities. Following my visit, the kids wrote me thank you notes. Check out a few below – gotta love these kids!

TOYOTA CALTY – NEWPORT BEACH

This summer, I worked with Dentsu North America and Toyota North America on their TOYOTA IN ACTION campaign (click HERE to see it LIVE). We flew out to California to shoot CALTY in Newport Beach, Toyota Financial Services in Torrance and The Toyota Museum in Torrance. CALTY is one of their design operations the USA. We were able to capture their innovative processes for creating cutting-edge design solutions for Toyota, Lexus and Scion. While some of the rooms were off limits, we were fortunate to photograph the paint testing lab, the interior design studio, the milling lab, the clay modeling studio, CAD-design studio and the virtual design review space. It was great to see such a strong presence for Toyota in America. Big thanks to Tara and her team at Toyota and Adina and Michael from Dentsu!

TO COME SOON: A GREAT POST FROM OUR TOYOTA MUSEUM SHOOT. To get you geared up about it, we were able to shoot (and smell) Toyota cars and trucks from the last 50 years, including the 2000GT which was used in the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice. Here is an image from my shoot of the 2000GT in white.
 

 
Check out this sweet chase scene. Most of the film was actually shot in Japan. 2:41: “How’s that for Japanese efficiency?!”
