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!

Seems like forever since I have posted but so much has been going on as of late that its been hard to keep up. Almost halfway into the new year though I now find myself neck deep in amazing new contracts with PUMA, Mighty Healthy, and Nicce London – a schedule of amazing upcoming trips – a new brand of my own – and craziest of all, engaged to my dream girl. 2016 has started off with a hell of a bang and its only going to go up from here. Im excited for the new year, new possibilities, and new adventures.

I Dont Make Excuses…

…I make results. Hard work, long hours, and constant hustle. And cause of that I am where I am today. My photography career could be its own NIKE slogan, just like “Just Do It”. And its that hard work that allows me to drop the news that my second little bit of business with NIKE is officially going down and the contract starts in just a few days. These boxes arrived today and im so excited to get started shooting. Look for some new images early next week!

All American Taylor

One of my favourite models to work with over the last year has been Taylor Godfrey. She’s no stranger to the site, the blog, or the galleries as Taylor simply is incredible and just ads so much to each shoot we do together effortlessly. We once again linked up for a late afternoon session in Malibu where we hit the sand an took some shots. The LA model was paired up with some Wildfox Couture bikinis and voila, All American Taylor. I am currently planning some big things with a major brand for September and November and you know Taylor will be involved.  Really looking forward to showing you more images from the future projects.

Ford Tough

Always a pleasure working with new talent, especially ones that kill it over an over again in each image. Meet Rachel Ford. This little lady recently moved from NYC to LA and is making a name for herself as quite a hard worker. She came out one morning to Santa Monica and with the help of Tawnys’ styling literally just destroyed every shot she took with us. Shooting for brands like Wildfox Couture, Reason, and TUK Shoes, we walked the Pier and shot every look with in just a few hours. Super stoked on the images, and super stoked on future project with Rachel in toe.

Duck Duck Goose

I have had the pleasure of shooting for quite a few high end and skimpy lingerie brands over the last year, and one of my favs has been Gooseberry Intimates. The brand which is located in Bali has a huge following of babes who not only love the brand, but love shooting for them. I had a chance to linked up with my friend Taylor who was recently back from working in Sweden. We had some time in Malibu on my last day of the trip and decided met up and shot. What better way to end the trip than with Taylor and some tiny Gooseberry pieces. We walked down under the pier and shot a few images up against the fencing. Shes a mega babe and really knows how to have fun during a shoot, and I think this images shows that off.

Purple Haze

Model Tawny Atwood is no stranger to NorthTrooper, be it the blog or her being the main page of the site. Shes done some pretty epic shoots for other brands in the past, as well as some great spots in TVs and movies. Its always a pleasure to work with a model that is not only talented, but knows how to work for the camera. So when the opportunity to shoot with her again arose I naturally jumped on it. With the last trip not being what it normal is I was glad that Tawny was able to save the day with some amazing shots last minute – these ones in particular.  You can get used to seeing a lot more of her face and her work on North Trooper as we have teamed up and are officially working together on all future shoots. My creative and images along side her styling will surely take things up another level

Island Breeze

California is always an adventure. Seems every trip has its high an low points but is always productive when in the right environment with the right people. I was lucky enough to work with some new brands this trip in creating some stunning images. I take pride in the fact that I dont shoot on white walls or hard wood floors like 90% of these photographers now a days shooting models. I like to tell stories with my images and think each shot does just that, especially when trying to produce something for a brand. Like this shot for example with Beach Babe Swimwear. Walking around Santa Monica we saw this great little Caribbean Dinner with an entrance way that matches the colours of the suit our model had on. Quick pow wow with the owner and next thing we were shooting in the resto. Quite cool!

Miss USA

When I shoot I get the privilege of working with several kinds of models. And in the past I have even worked with a few pageant queens/models. But I can now officially say I shot Miss USA, Allie Legget. First off she’s cute as a button and can bust her ass to kill the shots, which you can clearly see below. We didnt have alot of time, but we made the most of it. Three outfit changes, three locations, three killer shots for some amazing brands (BeachBunny Swimwear, Love Haus, Graffinis). I look forward to next month, and a little more time with Allie.

It Never Rains In Sunny California

If you have been around me, my photography, or the blog you know Candice is an OG. One of the first models I ever shot, and in truth some of the best of the best when it came to my earlier stuff. I linked back up with Candice recently and of all days when it was raining. We made the best of the time we had together and shot some new content. Candice isnt a fan of pants and well neither am I. So here is a shot off the balcony enjoying to morning mist.
