How do most of you photogs scout your locations? When visiting a new town I don’t have much time to explore as my schedule is usually pretty full and my transportation is limited, most of the time I’m just ubering everywhere. Thankfully San Diego is just beautiful everywhere you go. It also helps to work with models who share your same vision. Stephany took us to Mission Valley and we saw this old abandoned building on the side of the highway which worked out beautifully.

Had a great time in Montreal last month. It was an impromptu trip up North and super quick but I was able to squeeze in a shoot with the gorgeous Sarah. It was great working with Dulcedo Management, thanks to them for all their hospitality and setting me and Sarah up. I don’t shoot too much in studio but thought I would switch it up since it was around 25°F outside. We were able to take advantage of the studio in the agency. Sarah was awesome to be around and work with. I’m excited to see her career progress because she is gonna continue to kill it!

Finally warm weather! Eugenia and I finally got together after months and months of talking. Our schedules finally coordinated. She’s just an uber talented and upbeat person. We had such an awesome shoot! We just took over a whole sidewalk on Pacific Avenue, cars honking and people walking around us. We even had to stop mid shoot because a random guy wanted a picture with Eugenia. That golden hour was everything for us!
