  2. Quincy // Two Management

  3. Stock Photo Update

    27 Oct 2017
    The best part about working with Flashstock/Shutterstock is the clients I’m able to work with. I had the pleasure of working with CHI, Six.02, Esquire and Revlon recently. The tough part is constantly finding models because CHI is selling hair products as is Revlon, so you can’t really have the…

  4. Boom // Stars SF

    27 Oct 2017

    Every day is a good day for a boys beach day when you live in California and the weather is nice all year round! Can you believe it’s still 80 degrees and it’s fall?! So hot these guys had to hit the beach and of course I was there to…

  15. Gabe // Laguna Beach Blogger

    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!…

    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…
