Design project for St Regis

Over the last year, I’ve been working with the St Regis brand to create images for design inspiration. A bit of a mix of my fine art style + the more documentary type of commercial work. However, with a stronger focus on details of both architectural elements and landscapes. Fun and a bit nerve-racking to […]

2015 px3 awards

It’s quite an honor to share my two Honorable Mentions in the 2015 Prix De La Photographie Paris (PX3) Awards! A little surprisingly for the color work I submitted.

The Spectacular Griffith Observatory

Ah…the last stop of my photographic day in Los Angeles was the Griffith Observatory. Such spectacular views, day and night.
