Dad Time for Dockers / Fatherly

Earlier this summer, I was commissioned through Fatherly to shoot two dads in New York City for a collaboration with Dockers. We photographed Mike Chau, famous food Instagrammer @foodbabyny, and Simon Isaacs, co-founder of Fatherly, donning their Dockers on an outing with their kids. The ask was to document their kids' "best day ever," and the locations and beautiful summer weather did not disappoint. You can see the article here.

Mike took his kids - Matthew (Matty) and Samantha (Sammy) - to  Nick's Pizza  after some fun at the park in Queens, NY.

Mike took his two kids  Matthew (Matty) and Samantha (Sammy)  to Nick's Pizza and Snowdays after some fun at a park near their home in Queens, NY. The kids ran around at the playground, ate pizza, and shared an incredible looking ice cream sundae. 

Simon Issacs, co-founder of the parenting blog Fatherly, took his two-year-old daughter, Kaia, to the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey and headed to Cherry-Pick for some ice cream afterwards.  You can read more about his parenting and entrepreneurial styles in his Fatherly article here.

Portraits for the Bentonville Film Festival

In April, I was commissioned to create a series of expressive portraits for Mars Inc. via The Integer Group. Light boxes up to eight feet tall are displaying each image along with a beautifully designed quote from that person at the Bentonville Film Festival in Arkansas to celebrate workplace diversity. Check out the results below.

New Portfolio

We made this teaser while unboxing and assembling my new portfolios this week. I'm looking forward to getting some face time with clients in the coming months.

Prevention + Transform with Yoga

It is inspiring to think what a little exercise video can do to your daily routine. Prevention magazine's Transform with Yoga video program has changed the life of Jenni and Chip Ferris for the better. The program has helped remind them to stay connected with nature and with each other. They keep each other motivated when practicing yoga together and compare notes when they practice apart. This newly integrated routine has helped the two of them find calm in the chaos of their day to day lives. Check out the accompanying motion piece captured for this story below. 


Billy Dec Editorial

Back in the fall of 2017 we were keeping it local photographing Chicago's own Billy Dec at one of his stunning restaurants, Sunda. Not only is Dec a renowned entrepreneur, owning 7 clubs and restaurants city-wide, but he is also a active podcast host/actor to boot. Dec has made appearances on EmpireAmerican Crime Story and The People vs. O.J. Simpson (to name a few) as well as performing cooking demos dozens of times on The Today Show with Matt LauerDec was even appointed to President Barak Obama's Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. With his numerous charitable donations as well as participation with organizations such as AAPI Task Force on bullying and Make a Wish foundation this alum is impressive to say the least.

Made You Look

Late 2017 brought us on assignment for MCA Chicago. Here at the museum, with the creative guidance of FCB Chicago, the team and I went to work illustrating patron's expressions to the beautiful art surrounding them. Check out some of my favorite moments below!
