The Olly Girls

I had a chance to work with
The Olly girls from E! television's #1 show, Sunset Tan, on a 6 page fashion spread for LA Direct Magazine. We actually met a while ago when they came to visit Sam Sarpong when we (DimitryL. and I) were doing a shoot with Sam at my studio. We shot the LA Direct spread at Seven in Hollywood and had a blast. The girls are really funny and are enjoying their popularity as Sunset Tan's dynamic duo.....stay tuned to see if they get re-hired.

Marlena Shaw and Me

A few months ago, my friend, photographer Alan Mercer and I had a chance to work with the legendary singer, Marlena Shaw!! She was performing in San Diego at this great supper club called Anthology.

We met with Miss Shaw before her gig and had breakfast with her and then did a quick photo shoot. What an amazing woman.....she was warm and funny, and captivated us with stories about some of her great adventures through the years in the music industry. Check out her site for more info on her available music. Many thanks to Alan for thinking of me for the shoot. It was a fantastic experience I will never forget.
