For the last three weeks I went on the adventure of a lifetime… I took a photography workshop called, “Cambodia for Visual Storytellers” by Gavin Gough and Jack Kurtz. This was designed for professional photographers wanting to branch out and learn how to shoot for magazine spreads like National Geographic and such. We covered three major stories. We visited Cambodia’s capital city, Phnom Penh, where we learned about the country’s recent history with the Khmer Rouge. We then traveled to Battambang, to document rural life around the unique “Bamboo Railway”, and to the photogenic Angkor Wat temples. Read more…

The Temecula Mall new Flags for their flagpoles all over their property are almost complete. Here is a preview to some of the pairings. The richness in detail is stunning and I cannot wait for these to goto Press. Read more…


I captured and edited this mini commercial video for Ratna Ling Retreat Centers. The true story as it happened, was that I stayed here for a personal retreat that I found on living social. What I experienced was completely mismatched from what they advertised on their website. The experience was surprisingly MUCH MORE AMAZING! The accommodations alone being so lush and extravagant was something I wished their website had for me to experience prior to visiting. Naturally I approached Ratna Ling with the idea of shooting a mini-commercial that would give future visitors a sense of what Ratna Ling looks and feels like. It also helps them market to larger retreat groups and businesses. I got to incorporate my passion of photography into the video as well as some beautiful light paintings I did on the property with long exposure photography and flashlights. Enjoy!
