Angeleno Magazine Contributors August 2010

A lot of new things are happening right now and I'm doing my best to keep up with it all, haha! Lot's of picture taking, moving into a new apartment, and having a lot of meetings lately!

One big exciting thing is Angeleno asked me to be apart of their Contributors section! It is out this month and I couldn't be more excited! I've been shooting for Modern Luxury for 2 years now and its been a great few years. Being apart of the contributors section is pretty awesome and now all of Los Angeles can see who's behind the pictures in their magazines!

Here is the page!

Photo Shoot with Interior Designer Jamie Bush

Last month I met and photographed Jamie Bush for Angeleno Magazine and we had a great shoot! After we finished photographing his space I sat him down for a quick portrait which was too easy with his laid back personality and sense of style. After the shoot Jamie wanted to use one of the portraits for his website and here it is!

It's great when magazines publish my work and its just as great when clients license my work for their own personal use. Thanks Jamie for a great shoot! ...and i'm still in love with that painting!

Angeleno Magazine: April 2010

It's been a busy few weeks and I have a lot of new work to show! Angeleno has been keeping me pretty busy and now its time to show it off! New tearsheets!!

Check it out!
Photobucket

It is a story on the Houston twins, Marc and Johnny Houston, and their new lounge called La Descarga. It is a recreation of pre-Fidel Havana and has every kind of rum you can think of. With their great concept of its lounge and their attention to detail I have no doubt this lounge is going to do well.

Here are some other images from that shoot!

Angeleno Magazine: March 2010

This month in Angeleno I had a few pictures published! A few smaller stories and the one below!

It is a story on these two husband-and-wife-architects, Jeffrey Allsbrook and Silvia Kuhle. A cute quiet couple who's houses speak for itself! Using salvaged wood for this house, their use of space and light along with organic materials made this house so peaceful even though it was blocks from a busy intersection.

Check out the article!

...More to come in April!

Café Magazine

Photobucket

Being Cuban American I've always wanted to work and collaborate with other creative Latinos and I'm finally getting that chance! I was introdued to AlBerto Treviño, founder/art director of Café Magazine, from a fellow photographer and friend (Natalya Madolora www.nattyimages.com).

Café Magazine is an online and print magazine that is based in Chicago, IL. It targets latinos in all areas and all age groups. With its cute and corkey titles such as "el Cafecito" and "Cafe Espresso" I am very excited to be working with everyone at Café Media!

Here is the first assignment I had. It was a story on a bar here in LA called "La Cita".

In this month's issue of Orange Coast Magazine not only is my portrait published but they also added me in the contributors section...again! Woo Hoo! Although, I need a better picture of myself, one without my sunglasses on, but it's still pretty neat to see me with the other artists and writers that added to this months issue of OC magazine.

Check it out! I'm on the far right!

Thanks Orange Coast Magazine! :D

Orange Coast Magazine: February 2010

My first shoot of this year was for Orange Coast Magazine; and what a shoot it was! I was called to photograph the owners of Alice Supply Co., a super cute hip houseware collection . Seeing their collection of colorful supplies from plungers to hoses, I had to come up with a fun way to photograph them, and I did just that!

Coming up with a silly concept the ladies were enthusiastic and excited to shoot! And as you can see in the pictures, we had a lot of fun! Check out the final image!

I walked away from this shoot soaked from the knee's down! I didn't have a large enough piece of plexi but I didn't care, I got my shot and had a blast in doing so!

Here it is printed in this month's Orange Coast Magazine!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hello 2010!

Boy oh boy did things get busy towards the end of the year! The month of December flew by so quickly that I didn't even get to post any new work and news! But you'd better believe I've been busy! Getting called for shoots right before Christmas, day's before the new year rings, and days after we stepped into 2010...its been nonstop!

With it being a new year comes new goals, not resolutions, but goals! I'm making my list of people to contact, magazines to introduce myself and my work to, and companies to start working/collaborating with! Reading a quote a few days ago its stuck in my mind...

"Draw a line. Live above it." - unknown.

Here's a little blurb from a book I keep by my night stand and read often: "You can achieve the unachievable. Firstly you need to aim beyond what you are capable of. You must develop a complete disregard for where your abilities end. If you think you're unable to be on the cover of TIME magazine, make it your business to be there. Make your vision of where you want to be a reality. Nothing is impossible" from the book "It's not how good you are, its how good you want to be" by Paul Arden.

So, I'm stepping into this near year with a drive and motivation to make some new contacts, get more work with new magazines, and more than anything, take more pictures!
