A friend and makeup artist here in Mexico is going through cancer treatment at the moment. She is going through this life-changing experience with tremendous grace and strength. Today, in a way to support her through this journey, a fundraising photoshoot was held here in Mexico City. While photographers paid to attend today's workshop to work with models, my main goal was to capture this moment in my friend's life, to show her courage, grace and tremendous inner strength as she goes through this emotional and physically difficult time.
The planet we live on is beautiful in so many ways, but the way we have organized this human experience is at times so unfair. Too many have too much while too many have next to nothing. How can we bring balance to this planet we call home so that nobody has to go without and suffer inhuman hardships? I am reminded to be ever grateful for all I have in my life and thankfully gave all the change I had available to this dear lady.
I am thrilled and honored to announce that I have been selected by Zeiss to have my portraiture featured on their offical photography blog:
There will be two articles posted in the coming weeks. Article one is currently live.
A huge thanks to the many collaborators I have had the good fortune to work with over the years. To the many talented models, makeup artisits, fellow photographers and studio help, I could not make the images I do without you
Let the journey begin...
Today is our day. We're off to great places! We're off and away! Oh, the places we'll go! Next stop, Dubai!
