A very busy day at Neil Van Niekerk’s studio photographing concept work by YuffieBunny, Toshi, and Jazzmin Jolly. This is a natural light photo, but we did a a large volume of work using Neil’s equipment. I have major gear envy.



Brushing up on my photoshop skills with some old photos. I shot the original against a white backdrop.


Underboss NYC

YuffieBunny Modeling

Some more work I did for Tasty Peach Studios.  The model is the very lovely Jazzmin Jolly; always a pleasure to work with such talented creatives.  Aaand, I am really curious about wearing wigs now.


I photographed the lovely Jazzmin Jolly modeling wigs from Tasty Peach Studios.  And I now know how to put a wig on.


Yuffiebunny as Death  Zenescope Entertainment Grimm Fairy Tales: No Tomorrow Death.  You should be able to find some of her very awesome cosplay trading cards if you subscribe to Nerdblock.

I like designing my promo postcards.  I used an image that I photographed for Kirameki Magazine and Head Kandi cyberfalls.


I haven’t photographed any Japanese musicians in about a year, so it was a pleasant surprise to get a phone call from an old friend about covering the Morning Musume concert in NYC.  You’ll most likely find the rest of the photos at RESONANCE Media.  Hopefully they’ll spread to other media/news sites from there.   I’d forgotten how cohesive and well run a Japanese show was and the fans are always so devoted.
