  1. Dre // Bella LA

    12 Apr 2018
    I love working with people like Dre who are so happy with the final product, but also don’t waste your time excessively shooting. We shot for maybe 45 minutes (including wardrobe changes). He was so easy to work with, knew what he wanted, but also took direction well and was…

  6. Colin + J Brand // New York

    08 Mar 2018
    I always enjoy working with Colin, but I was beyond stoked when I found out he was in NY while I was there. I met up with him and Carly to snap some shots in some J Brand attire! We wandered around soho and Tribeca. Enjoy!

  7. Diego Barrueco // Tribeca

    01 Mar 2018
    I was so stoked to find out Diego and I would be in New York at the same! Originally our paths were just missing each other by two days, but he wound up staying longer. Of course we had to make a shoot happen! We met in Tribeca and shot around…

  9. Molly // Scout SF

    23 Feb 2018
    I loved working with Molly while I was in SF. She and I had scheduled a shoot a year prior and it wound up not working out because she had a cold. Well it worked out because we were able to finally make it happen and her agent Becca styled…

  10. Cait // Newport Night Shoot

    19 Feb 2018
    Newport Beach always reminds me of when I first started shooting. This was one area I would always come to shoot - it was close, but far enough out of my close proximity that it felt so different and far away. It had been forever since I was last there…

  11. SF Blogger: Simply Her Fav

    15 Feb 2018
    Felicia and I first met via Instagram and we set up a coffee date. We hit my favorite spot Joe and the Juice, so of course after we met for the first time, Joe was our forever meeting spot. The best part about swinging by Joe is a lot of…

  12. Matt // Dragonfly Agency Dallas

    12 Feb 2018
    All right, all right Matt Harris! He is one cool dude. We met at Dragonfly, tried on a ton of wardrobe options with Sally Atkinson (awesome Dallas stylist) then hit some rad locations around Dallas. We wanted to focus on fitness and an all around fun, funny, full of life kind…

  13. Casey // Newport Beach

    08 Feb 2018
    Casey is SO CUTE and SO SWEET! I couldn’t have asked for a better day with her! She was such a trooper, too! We had originally planned to shoot in San Clemente, but due to traffic and other crazy things that happen in CA, we had to move the shoot…

  14. Bryan // FD Photo Studio + Weho

    08 Feb 2018
    It’s crazy how social media brings people together nowadays. It’s barely normal to meet someone in real life first. Bryan started following me on Instagram and eventually reached out to set up a shoot, which I was so glad about because he was SO awesome and fun to be around.…

  15. Baxter of California and Origins Lifestyle Shoot

    07 Feb 2018
    I had the pleasure of shooting some lifestyle product content for Baxter of California and Origins via Flashstock. It’s been such a blast working with rad companies like these on small social media projects. Baxter called for a man in the shower using their product. At first, I had no…

  16. Mr. Rutherford // Tribeca

    04 Feb 2018
    Another day with my dear friend Eric Rutherford. This time we decided to explore Tribeca on our way back to my hotel, Arlo Soho, which is so awesome by the way! Enjoy!

  17. Izzie // New York City

    01 Feb 2018
    Isn’t Izzie the cutest? It was a rainy day and we almost postponed. I had made my way to her place just in case and thankfully we managed to make it work, especially since it was my last day in New York. Thankfully we wound up with some really great photos,…

  18. Carly // New York City Dancer

    29 Jan 2018

  20. Caroline // Dragonfly Agency Dallas

    22 Jan 2018
    It has been a while since I worked with such a young new face. I work with new faces all the time at Bella, but most of them are actors and still have some sort of experience in front of a camera. Caroline was very fresh - first shoot ever!…

  21. Rene Grincourt // LA Models

    18 Jan 2018
    It was so great to finally meet and work with Rene Grincourt! We met up for coffee on the rainiest day, so we primarily shot at the coffeeshop and around the area. We rescheduled shooting 3-5 times due to rain, so we decided to just make it happen even amidst…

  22. Gergana // Coney Island Blogger

    09 Jan 2018
    Thanks John Philp for linking me up with Jacq! While in Chicago, I needed someone to help me on a social media project for Origins and asked one of my only Chicago friends, John Philp who recommended Jacq. She was so awesome and I loved working with her! While I was in…

  25. Gentleman Warfare

    07 Jan 2018
    Remember when I shot the brand Egard Watch Co? Well Ilan, the owner of Egard started a new watch line called Gentleman Warfare and he was kind enough to ask me to photograph the new line! I was beyond stoked to get to work with two awesome friends on this…
