GQ’s Selena Gomez in Dallas by Victor Demarchelier

The last editorial shoot I worked on in 2013 for Entertainment Weekly with Jack Black. This shoot was for GQ magazine featuring the beautiful and talented Singer/Actress Selena Gomez! With photographer Victor DeMarchelier and most of the crew coming from NYC, they needed me here as a local. I helped finding locations, and securing the local crew and transportation. The NYC team was excellent. Total pros in each of their realms. I really enjoyed the traveling photo assistant and digi tech – Those fellas rocked. GQ even sent out a video team for her interview and another solo gal for the BTS footage. All together, we set up some really gorgeous scenes with so many great textures in and around the farm house, retired stable, and beautiful old airstream trailer on the property. Victor DeMarchelier evoked some beautiful emotion and looks from Selena, a TX native and resident. She looked gorgeous in every shot.

Rackspace with John Davidson in San Antonio

This was my first project with John Davidson, and we was a real pleasure to partner with. He’s got a great sense of humor and never misses a beat. John is full of ideas for interactions, the story within the shot, lighting, and camera angles. We were under the creative lead from ad agency GYK Antler in Manchester NH. The creative director and John paired up and created a fantastic new library of images throughout the massive Rackspace headquarters building in San Antonio.

Rackspace set up a large casting of employees for us all to choose from, and we really got lucky with the talent that showed up! More than 60 unique faces and great personalities stepped in front of John’s lens during the shoot. We built more than a dozen scenarios with several variations within each.

Here are a few of our favorite photos from the shoot:

A Trip to Croatia – Sailing and Old Cities

This lesser known vacation destination was the right fit for these two adventurous travelers. We loved Croatia. We had been recommended by friends to check it out, and it was everything we hoped for. Overall to me it felt like a mixture of Italy and what I’d imagine Greece to be like. Lots of small old cities, gorgeous coastline, endless seafood, pizza, and ice cream. The capital city of Zagreb kicked off our trip, followed by a week on a small sailboat cruising along the coast. A nice stop in Split, and a short ride to Dubrovnik to finish. The charm of this country will stay with us both for a long time.
