The Not-So-Corporate Yogi

As a marketing executive, Dana Byerlee knows the adverse effects corporate life can have on our health and wellbeing. And she wants to help change it. After making adjustments to her own lifestyle, Dana, a certified yoga instructor, plans to bring her own brand of yoga and mindful meditation right to the belly of the beast — the office. So, for this shoot, we incorporated fun murals and sculptures to showcase Dana's playful nature and love of art. Here are a few of my favorites.

Renaissance Man

Surfer, philosopher, musician, actor, artist, voracious magazine reader. Bryan Smith is seriously one of the coolest people I've ever met. And, as expected, we had a blast during his photo shoot in Santa Monica on Friday afternoon. Here's a preview. 

Introducing Rebecca Michaels' Fall 2014 Collection

The upside to fashion photography: You get to shoot some really cool stuff with really cool people. The downside to fashion photography: You can't show anyone until the designer launches the collection many months later. I shot this lookbook in February. It's finally September, and most of this collection is now available at specialty stores throughout the U.S., including CorePower YogaLuke's Locker and Yoga Works. So, without further ado, here's the latest from L.A.-based designer Rebecca Michaels. Modeled by Makaela Maran and Tiara Denise. Makeup and hair by Alfred Mercado

Sneak Peek: Rebecca Michaels' Spring 2015 Collection

Two weekends, four sunrises, one sunset, one photographer and one model. That's what it took to shoot Rebecca Michaels' spring 2015 lookbook. Unlike previous shoots, however, Rebecca modeled this collection herself — doing what she always does, in her own neighborhood (which also happens to be my neighborhood), in her own apparel. Although the collection is still under wraps, here's a sneak peek that doesn't reveal too much. Cheers!

Stark Contrast

Loving these shots of Yoga Shelter founder Eric Paskel and Rina Yoga founder Rina Jakubowicz from our August photo shoot in downtown Los Angeles. Two souls, one love. Rina's hair and makeup by Nicole Hawkyard. 

Congrats, Fabrice!

A huge congratulations to actor and model Fabrice Mougas, who just landed the lead in an international Cadillac commercial. Here are some headshots I photographed for him last year. Can't wait to see you on TV, Fabs. Vroom, vroom!

First Day of Preschool

Lucia's first day of preschool. 

Pacific Park

My weekend photo shoot with fashioner designer Rebecca Michaels brought us on a neighborhood journey to some of our favorite locales, including this fun spot at the Santa Monica Pier. I love my job. 

Summertime (and the Livin's Easy)

My daughter, Lucia, enjoying the last days of summer.

Friday Night Yoga Clubbin'

Friday Night Yoga Club debuted in Los Angeles this spring. Here's a close-up of this season's DJ-fueled festivities at Agni Yoga, One Down Dog, Black Dog Yoga and Yoga Shelter.

Introducing Violet Love Black Label Headbands

Violet Love doesn't mess around when it comes to making headbands. They're funky, functional and inspire a roarin' good time. As if these amazing headbands could get any better, Violet Love's new black label collection blends its stunning signature prints with ultra-absorbent fabric for the most active fashionistas. I don't break a sweat without one. This photo shoot of the spring and black label collections was nothing short of a party. Here's a sample of this season's catalog. Shot in December in downtown Los Angeles. Models: Eric Paskel, Laila Paskel, Dusty Facinelli-Janisch, Scotty Hsieh, Alex, Brittany, Abigail, Emma, Alexis Novak, Sochi and Emmy.

Introducing Rebecca Michaels' Spring 2014 Collection

This shoot was very near and dear to my heart. I shot this editorial lookbook for Rebecca Michaels' spring 2014 collection last July with an amazing crew of women who, among other things, were unafraid to walk the streets of downtown Los Angeles in bare feet and change clothes in the back seat of an SUV. This stunning collection is now available online and at specialty stores throughout the United States. Models: Newsha Mostafavi, Paydin LoPachin and Tiara Denise.
