Zac Posen by Celebrity photographer in San Francisco for Jolie Gazette

Zac Posen is a fashion icon and his bravado on Project Runway is one to behold.  It was an honor to photograph him when he was in San Francisco for a runway show at Neiman Marcus.  He was interviewed by Juliet Belkin for Jolie Gazette and you can read it here: https://www.joliegazette.com/the-talk-4/zacposen

He was as provocative, confident and charismatic as you would expect from someone with so much talent and success right out of the gate.  Bravo!

San Francisco Celebrity Photographer - Joshua Henry - Starring in Hamilton the Musical

What's so exhilarating about shooting really great actors is that they are so uninhibited...Totally free. Not arrogant but comfortable in their own skin. Without a line of dialogue or one hint towards a character Joshua Henry just flowed at The De Young Museum. I got the freedom to look for light, composition, and backgrounds while he just did his "thing". And he did it with gracious ease.   Hamilton Musical 💫✨

San Francisco Celebrity Photographer shoots Michael Des Barres, a Los Angeles based musician with no limits!

MIchael Des Barres is never at a shortage for words as his mind races at a speed most of us can't even fathom.  He is very poignant and virtuous in his mindfulness and I love him dearly.  Getting him taped up for this celebrity portrait shoot was fun because it was so hard for him NOT to talk. We found this NO WAR sign in Venice, CA which is such a reflection of Michael Des Barres personal values.  If you ever get a chance to see him play don't walk...RUN!

San Francisco Celebrity Photographer shoots Natasha Alam, star of True Blood, Nip/Tuck and Entourage

Well, when you take on photographing Natasha Alam you gotta think BIG!  So, I managed to get a  cessna airplane and we photographed at the Santa Monica Airport.  She was totally adventurous and was true to form as her characters.  No FEAR!  I love being a celebrity photographer in Los Angeles or San Francisco as I get a chance to work with the most talented actors and actresses whom are willing to showcase their talent in such fun and vital ways!

LA Magazine Editorial Feature

Who doesn't love an old school pool hall with red leather booths and art deco red velvet wall paper?  I had a very fun theatrical moment directing models, Celesta, Jenny and Mark to act in character as I photographed them in multiple scenarios.  I love the jealousy, the fun, the quirkiness and the all around retro vibe they all exuded during this fashion shoot!
