Just happened upon this beautiful series of black and white photos by Baldwin S. Lee of the WTC pre 9/11. 
Today I’m thinking about my closest friends in NYC and what we all went through together 13 years ago.

Fall fashion with Katharine McPhee for the September issue of Los Angeles Magazine.  Shot on location in July at the Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu.  We were all so hot and sweaty, but poor Katharine had to wear blazers and turtlenecks and all that jazz…and she looked perfect.  She’s gorgeous and a real trooper.  Thank you Amy and Linda for such a hot and fun day!

Some of my favorite outtakes of Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani currently out in the current issue of Wired Mag.  Lots of thanks to both of them for being fun and nice.  Those two qualities really go a long way in my book.  If you enjoy laughing, definitely for sure absolutely watch The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail on Comedy Central.  

My photo of @jonahray and @kumailn in the Sept issue of @wired magazine. You’ll come for the Snowden cover and stay for these two.

Outtakes of art collector and Jumex fruit juice heir Eugenio Lopez photographed at his home in Beverly Hills for Sotheby’s.  If I ever get to Mexico City I will for sure pay Museo Jumex a visit where you can see more of Eugenio’s massive contemporary art collection.  

It always blows my mind to be able to see into different peoples’ bubbles even if just for a little while.  I mean…some people live with Jeff Koons sculptures (and use them to check their hair) in their backyards!  Not many, but some.  One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is the element of surprise.  The minute I think I know what a shoot is going to be like, I arrive and have a completely different experience than what I was anticipating.  I assumed Eugenio would be serious and uptight.  I thought his home would be a cold and sterile place, and I could not have been more wrong about everything.

Been super bummed all week about Robin Williams.  I never had the privilege of meeting or photographing him, but I grew up watching him and was/am such a big fan.  I love this photographic tribute on Time Lightbox.  It gives some insight into how generous of a subject Mr. Williams was which for us (photographers) is such a huge gift.  
I have many thoughts on the connection between comedy and sadness; the light and the dark, the ties between being funny and being depressed.  It’s a little more sad and more personal than I want to get into here on Tumblr so instead I would just like to send my bit of gratitude into the world for Robin Williams and his gifts to us.

Couple of outtakes from my Bust Magazine shoot with Hayley Williams.  The top photo is very similar to the one that ran as the story opener, but I always preferred this one a bit.  I think it’s important that we as photographers show the images that we are most proud of - even if the differences are slight.
