I was fortunate enough to travel to India in 2010, and took a break from the commercial work I was producing, and take some portraits of the beautiful people that I met, or shared a moment with.
Tastemade studios has a reputation for bringing high quality production to food and travel culture. I was Director and DP for a couple episodes of this show All Nighter. This show features Food Beast co-founder Elie Ayrouth as he visits different cities across the country to explore everything there is to eat, drink, and experience before the sun comes up.
In this episode Elie heads to Denver on 4/20 to inhale their growing pot culture and soak up their already impressive craft beer scene.
In this episode Elie gallops into Louisville the night before the Kentucky Derby, but can he go the distance and make it to Churchill Downs by morning?
One of the things I enjoy most is coming up with concepts/looks for new shows. In this particular case we branded our own version of a video Profile for Thrashlabs, putting a spotlight on relatively unknown artists and digging into their craft and mission.
This video series was created for PETA, to promote alternatives textiles instead of using animal products for fashion.
Highlighting the revolution in vegan leather footwear and reminding us how the new model helps to rectify disastrous effects of the leather industry, Stephanie Nicora, owner and founder of Nicora Johns, gives PETA an unprecedented insider’s look at her process creating only 100 percent cruelty-free, eco-friendly, and fair-wage handmade shoes made of all-recycled materials in the company’s Los Angeles factory.
Being made with vegan wool means being of high-tech, eco-friendly, cruelty-free construction—a model set to take over the fashion industry. Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart of VAUTE introduces PETA to her chic wool-free coats and chunky knit sweaters, which encourage positive change by taking animals out of the fashion equation and allow us to look and feel that much better getting dressed in the morning.
The most interesting part of fashion week to me has always been the behind the scenes, the hours of prep that go into a 3 minute show. This behind the scenes video gives a preview of some of Anna Sui’s new products and the models that love them.
