The first of my “Rough Cut (RC)” series. Alex is the model in the “Rough Cut” inaugural video. No soundtrack for now. I’ll include one in later videos when I get better at filming and editing. This personal project is leading up to a collaboration I have in the works, which will be called by a different name. Also this first video was meant for Instagram, but I’m working on making longer videos for Tumblr. Honestly not really sure where I’m going with my “Rough Cut” series, but for now, I’m focusing on the people I shoot. It’s all about growth for me. More details soon so stay tuned.
Here’s a not-so-secret secret about me when it comes to styling a model. When all else fails and I can’t think of anything, I usually just end up styling the girl like a boy. It’s pretty one-dimensional hence why I need more stylists to shoot with or need to educate myself more on styling and other shit in terms of fashion. I’m behind, but shit best believe, I aim to catch the fuck up because other photographers never wait for their peers, aka competition, to catch up to them. On a side-note, I’m still more interested in the fine art and documentary areas of photography. It’s just that fashion photography happens to help me be more organized and that benefits me in those other areas.

Who has free time to go thrifting tomorrow?
I’m shopping for two shoots I have on Sunday.
I honestly did not tell her to throw up the “West Coast” sign. This was all Caina (@ Scout/@ LA Models). This shot makes me laugh because of how serious she is throwing it up.
