I think I’ve been so busy with client work that I haven’t gotten to chance to shoot something just for fun. @oliviadantes collaborated with me a few years back to do a very Easy Rider shoot with my and my buddy @kws209’s Panhead. I really loved what we got and she killed the look perfectly. Still love these shot even if they weren’t for anything other then just fun! #harley #commercialphotography #70sfashion #easyrider #panhead #harleydavidson #fringe #vintageclothing

One of my favorite shoots this last year. I think not only because I was I got to use some of the background from quentin Tarantino’s new film, we made the best of a bad situation and got some good images. @tiannadonyes didn’t know she’s also a model! Give her a follow and see her stand up in LA when you can. Here’s some retro goodness for your morning! #blonde #quentintarantino #setdesign #60sfashion #buick #bighair #pinup

First #poast of the year! Let’s get into it with a beautiful shot of @ginnyrosewater from #vivalasvegasrockabillyweekend two years back. @madamepomp killed it with the hair and this is one of my favorite shots from that year. Ginny just had her adorable baby so I’m sure she’s enjoying not having to get all dolled up like this for a while till she’s back in the game! Can’t wait to work with her again. #pinup #vintagelingerie #bulletbra #blonde #ginnyrosewater

Another year. It really goes fast the older you get. It’s amazing how much can happen in a year. I was living in Los Angeles this time last year, busting my ass just to make rent and survive. The year took me to Colorado, Hawaii, Texas and New York. That’s a lot of places in one year! While like any artist, I’m hard on myself and want to always succeed further then I am. But I do need to stop and realize how far I am, and what I can do to take the next step. A big part of this post is a thank you to everyone that supports me. I know I don’t always say it. And sometimes months goes between seeing people. But I don’t forget and I know without great people I wouldn’t be where I am, and I won’t get to where I want to be as a person and artist without them. Thank you all. I hope for nothing but better times with people I love, and more times with those I miss. Even if I seem like Eeyore, I’m so thankful for everything.

It’s almost Christmas! I hope everyone is having a great holiday season and enjoying their own celebrations, whatever they might be. Thought I would show off a few cute images with @bovixxen from a few years for the famous @bachelorpadmagazine! She got what she wanted for Christmas... are you going to? Thanks again to @bad_bones_photography for letting us use his pad for this shoot!! #pinup #christmasshoot #bovixxen #pony #santababy

Missing some east coast time and my girl @audreylovdead! I met her during her time in California and I’ve missed her since she moved back. I know it’s getting cold and snowy for most of you, so here is some warm weather #waybackwednesday for you all! #pinup #altmodel #bronzebeauty #audreylove #socal

Happy holidays!! I had a lot of fun out in Austin with the crew at @murphosatx and @thereal_mrsmurphy on hair and makeup! It was hard building a set in such little time but I think it came out cute and everyone that booked me loved it! Sharing two cute images from the gorgeous @pinuphousewife and @shevidelux looking amazing. She made the outfit herself! I hope you’re all having an amazing holiday season with family and friends!

Just got our bad ass holiday set up and man I’m excited for all the hard work to make it happen. The beautiful @baddestgladys and her little woofer were the first to use the set and it looks adorable with them posing on the two cars we have. Like I said, this is the first time I’ve done a holiday set and it’s been a blast. Can’t wait for all the gals that will be shooting with it this weekend. Still some room Saturday we could squeeze a client in! #hotrods #holidayphotoshoot #austinphotographer #texas #murphos #redheads #xmas #pinup

One of my favorite #throwbackthursday ever. I had the honor of using my #buickskylark in @timhicksmusic video for “Alive and In Love” back in 2015. @ghostatomic shot it all in two days and I still love the results. Also the first time I’ve let a stranger drive my car, but it was in good hands. :) I did some promo photos as well for Tim and he used them on the back and front cover of his Australian CD release. #musclecar #moviecar #joshuatree #country #production #yeehaw

I hope everyone had a good week! If you celebrated thanksgiving or not, I hope you got time with loved ones and had something good to eat. :) I’m gearing up for Texas in a week or so and it’s so EXCITING. We are working on a top secret super duper fun project along with shooting some gorgeous gals at @murphosatx. It’s gonna be fun! Here’s a beautiful one of @edieeve that we shot this summer... still been busy and haven’t got the rest of these done, but I had to post this one. When I told her we had a 1930’s Rolls Royce... she knew what to wear. ;) thanks to @skotychops for the space to shoot. #pinups #classic #vintagestyle #artdeco #rollsroyce
