    Gregory Zarian! What a handsome and rad dude! I had no idea what to expect when I met him. I knew he was friends with Eric Rutherford so he had to be cool, but man he was super cool. It only took us a year to actually shoot and we…

  3. Haley // Bella Los Angeles

    Date 20 Sep 2017
    It was so fun working with Haley again! She is so sweet and so fun! Following traditions - we had to deal with a tiny bit of rain at the beginning, we grabbed some sweets (cupcakes this time) and we ate poke! We met up along Larchmont and spent the…

  9. Gabe // Laguna Beach Blogger

    Date 15 Aug 2017
    Finally reunited with Gabe! I can’t believe it took us 3 years! He’s lived in LA for a while now, but it’s nothing like when he lived in south beach. I was at his apartment every single day. We always hung out, but now in California I’ve seen him ONCE!…

    Date 11 Jun 2017
    Who was more surprised than me to find out Paul Knops was in New York at the same time?! I was so stoked when we realized we were both in the city. We spent more time hanging out than shooting, but of course we had to squeeze a shoot in.…

  16. Jakub // Ford Models Chicago

    Date 06 Jun 2017
    I always search for cute coffeeshops while I’m traveling and Heritage Outpost always popped up, so I made sure to swing by while I was in town. It wasn’t crowded at all, so Jakub and I shot a few images inside and a bunch outside. He’s a really killer model…

  18. Headshots

    Date 23 May 2017
    I always love taking headshots! My headshot section is actually hidden on my site though because that’s not the primary photography I do. Most headshots are done in studio, whereas I shoot headshots on location in natural light. Feel free to check out more headshots at www.karanixon.com/headshots! I had the pleasure…

  19. James // LA Models

    Date 21 May 2017

  23. Creative Fill: Dylan Sido

    Date 24 Apr 2017
    It is always a blast creating with other photographers, but man I love getting together with Dylan because he’s so artsy and pushes me out of my comfort zone. We met for coffee and chatted a bit, then we wandered around San Juan Capistrano and snapped some photos. He wanted…
