  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.…

  9. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. Carly // New York City Dancer

  14. 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!…

  15. 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…

  16. Gergana // Coney Island Blogger

    15 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…

  19. 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…

  20. Darren Kennedy // Sunset Blvd

    04 Jan 2018
    Darren came to California from Dublin/London and of course Mr. Rutherford made sure to connect us! It was such a pleasure working with Darren. He wanted to hit all the typical Los Angeles must do’s, spots that made it very obvious we were in LA. We met at Mel’s Diner…

  21. New York Fashion Week Men’s ‘17

    03 Jan 2018
    As London Men’s Fashion Week is approaching, I’m reminiscing on when I went to NYFWM with my good friend Eric! I can’t believe I’d never been to fashion week. Eric Rutherford invited me to join him during men’s fashion week since I was in town. It was such a blast…

  22. Noa // Downtown Los Angeles Blogger

    BFF coming in hot with the booty on fleeek! So so funny - I started laughing and he kept asking what was so funny… Well I totally caught myself staring at his butt. He said he had been working on his legs and butt, so he took it as a…
