Who needs a fancy studio!

Working in a big fancy giant studio with a 30-foot tall syke wall would be pretty amazing but expensive. or just natural light with 10-foot windows bring in all the sunlight and city views would be awesome…



But in this super small space with just one or two lights I’ve created what I think are some pretty amazing pictures. (check out the Studio Makeover 2017)

What I’ve created…

This photo of Chantal titled “Where is my Mind” because I was listening to that song when I was editing this set was actually not shot in a studio but outside, in my backyard, on the patio. using a black sheet I bought from JoAnn’s fabric and a mirror. Later published to the PhotoVogue (Vogue.it) site.

Leilani (Instafamous) was shot in the garage with just a single overhead light octabox a broken Ranger Quadra and a dress she bought from the mall.

Of course The Macy’s Girl. So, so many different projects we worked on but this one was published in NIF Magazine.  Macy’s entire wardrobe came from different Amazon stores.


You can see the full behind the scenes video here.

The beautiful HotPocket was published in NIF Magazine. She was actually the first one to be published my NIF Magazine.


One more person that I’ve shot here in my little studio that was published in NIF Magazine is Sarah. We shot these partly just in a hallway and on the living room couch.


All you need is a little imagination and creativity and maybe some chains and body paint and I came up with this image of Jessica. (DarkBeauty link)

Behind the scenes, video of the photo shoot Chains can be seen here.

Like I just said, “imagination and creativity”  when this was posted on DarkBeauty’s facebook page, it got over 6.1k likes by far one of their most popular post.  this picture set still isn’t posted to the blog.



This photo of Sarah was taken with just one light taken in a messy garage. which was later published on PhotoVouge, and DarkBeauty Magazine.
