T Is For Tommy

Been quiet on the blog front as of late, yea I know i know, but its been crazy busy both life an business. Tons of new projects in the works, editorials, campaigns, and more. One of the more recent Fall editorials I have been working on while up in Canada with the Westbury Agency was for Tommy Hilfiger with an amazing team and model, Melrose Boyer. The full set of images can be seen in an upcoming issue of Foam Magazine, but I wanted to post a few of my favs. You can expect alot more to come with Melrose and us at NorthTrooper as she is just the sweetest!

MDDN

There has been a huge absence on the blog as of late but that is because I have been taking things in new directions and have been working with new people. Models and editorial work is great but creatively challenging its not. Being able to work with creatives daily is what I long for an am happy to finally be working with people I have admired for a long time. One in particular, Josh madden. If you dont know the name you need to educate yourself. Recently I was asked to go to the MDDN Studio and shoot a new band called Tennis System. Just a quick fun shoot to produce some images for the band, and they came out sick. Check out the bands Instagram, Facebook, and site for more. This is my second band I have shot for MDDN, and looking forward to showing you alot more!

PUMA x Sweet Tooth Swim

As mentioned in an earlier post, I recently worked on a new set of editorials with the Westbury Agency for PUMA, Sweet Tooth Swim, and Foam Magazine. The location was the iconic Cadillac Jacks located right beside the Pink Motel and it could not have been more perfect. 50s diner, milkshake and ice cream theme, and the perfect bikinis an shoes to match. Going to keep it simple and let the visuals speak for me.

Frame Magazine

We spent some time at a desert like location in the Valley called Stoney Park. Massive boulders piled on top of each other with nothing but beautiful vistas surrounding. The team and I hiked up to a small spot, set up, and started shooting with our model Bailee Mykell for our new feature in Frame magazine. Now we cant show you all the images, you will have to wait till the issue is released. But here is a sneak peak of two shots. The day shoot went exceptionally well even with all the actual hiking up and hiking down we had to do between shots for wardrobe an hair/makeup changes. Flirty, fun, and all done once again with an amazing team helping along the way. More soon.

Three Stripes

New opportunities in the industry are always welcome especially when they come in the caliber of Three Stripes. Adidas has slowly started to take over where NIKE has left off and is making moves to become king of the footwear game. Recently we had some time with Adidas one on one to create some editorials for them, and the womens collections. Keeping it clean, minimal, and sexy we hit locations to shoot visuals that would make an impact. Girls can be bad too, and girls can run the sneaker game just as easily as any dude. Here are two shots, with a bunch more to come!

We All Scream For Ice Cream

I can’t think of one person who doesn’t like ice cream and by the looks of it neither can Puma. So much so, that they’ve dedicated their latest collection to the chilled, summery, creamy goodness. The ‘Ice Cream Pack’ is a trio of suede styles pays lyrical nods to Raekwon’s track ‘Ice cream’, in your choice of three tasty colourways – French vanilla, butter pecan, and chocolate deluxe. Each comes in a suede upper with embossed Puma branding, all sitting on top of a speckled rubber sole. You might be wondering why I am showing you them and talking about them, well the answer is simple. I am shooting an upcoming feature for Foam Magazine that will involve milkshakes, ice cream, and babes. Alot of planning has gone into this, from location, styling, etc. Really cant wait to show you more.

I Want My MTV

Working so much lately that its strange to think other people are noticing the hard work we put in at North Trooper. Tawny and I are a team, and we have so many amazing people contributing to our shoots that it gets crazy. I got an awesome email from an old friend that now works at MTV and wanted to bring me in for a meeting in regards to what we have been up to, and the potential to see if there is a pilot/series out of it all. The big apple is calling, and were answering. Stay tuned…

Who’s Got A Sweet Tooth?

Its been quiet on the blog front as I have been working extra hard behind the scenes on a new project that is almost about to launch. Today I can show you some of the initial shots of my new swim brand Sweet Tooth Swim, a bikini brand for the sweet life. While we are putting the finishing touches on the line, the site, and shooting an filming the lookbook I had some time with some babes to shoot each of the flavours in the upcoming “Milkshake” Collection. Vanilla, Strawberry, and Chocolate never looked so good as they do on Valeriya, Carlise, and Laura. Im really excited to show you more but for now this will have to do.

PUMA Fenty

PUMA’s Fenty Trainer is the first original sneaker collaboration of its kind,and it recently dropped, and sold out fast. The Trainer debuted in the artist’s 2016 PUMA show — in an all-new PUMA silhouette, the sneaker is fearless and has exaggerated proportions in three bold colors. Constructed of an advanced neoprene upper and full length flex groove for 360-degree movement, this kick pays as much attention to technical details as to appearance. The Fenty Trainer along with a few other pairs of shoes from the current PUMA collection made its way to us and we took full advantage immediately shooting some editorials. Im super excited to show you just a few of these, and cant wait for you to see more of whats to come with us here at NorthTrooper with PUMA.
