FAME Presents x Content Magazine | Fashion Panel

A special thank you to Content Magazine and FAME Presents for organizing a Fashion Industry panel discussion last week. It was a such an inspiration to be amongst a group of inspiring and passionate panel of entrepreneurial innovators. What a great opportunity to be able to come together and immerse ourselves in conversation to share our experiences, insights and vulnerabilities in front of friends and strangers who all share one thing in common. Thank you to all that came out to support and listen!

It’s certainly been a long time since our last post but it’s also been an extremely exciting year with a slew of creative projects going on. Please stay tuned to see what’s been going on at the studio!

David @ Ford Models – Miami

I got a chance to shoot with David from Ford Models this past weekend before he flew out to Miami. I must say he is one of the most entertaining male models I have worked with by far. Myself and the other models could not stop laughing. He is quite a character. Cheers to David and happy modeling! I wish him nothing but the best in his career. Thanks to Josephine Harmon for the suave make-up and hair!

Photos featured at Fashion and Compassion Charity Gala

It delights us to announce that some of my photos will be featured at the UVSA Northern California Charity Gala benefiting the Asian American Donor Program. The event will be held April 3rd, 2010. The photos were done in collaboration with Stella and Dot stylist Pauline Le, with the talents of model Ari Brugh and make-up artist extraordinaire Joli de Jackie. For more details, please visit the event’s site here.

Finding delight in strawberry fields

Not the typical Saturday spent at the movies or other such things. Nope. Not even close. Try a Saturday with a dark haired, blue-eyed beauty, a talented hair stylist, and a superb make-up artist in a niche of the Hayward hills. Justina did a great job with the hair, as always, and even added a little touch of her crafty side with mini top hats adorned with feathers and pearls. Tiffany went for the subtle but still stellar eye makeup with a kick of red lipstick. All was picture-perfect! Once make-up and hair were done, we headed to Bijou Restaurant and Bar to set up shoot.

Owner Benjamin Young was more than accommodating and was delighted to have us shoot at his wonderful restaurant, which serves up “contemporary French/California cuisine, offered at reasonable prices, prepared by Executive Chef Christian Nam-Hee using seasonal, fresh and often locally sourced, organic ingredients.” After the shoot, we delighted in a cocktail perfectly dubbed “Strawberry Fields Forever” containing “fresh strawberries and fresh basil from the garden, barenjager Honey Liqueur for some subtle honey flavor, locally distilled 20 Gin and hand pressed orange and lemon juices” – a concoction I definitely recommend!
