This past Friday, I went to my 4th Creative Mornings event since I’ve been in LA. This time, though, was a bit different as it was the LA chapter’s 3rd birthday. Continue reading article
I’ll come right out and admit it, so far, my ideas—good or bad—often just came to me. Other times, they were the fruit of a thinking collaboration with Anka. That was the case, for example, of Faces of Geneva. No Music No Life on the other hand, just came to me. Anyway, however your ideas come to you is not important. What’s important is to have them.

WOW! This is long overdue but hey, better late than never. Right? This photo was the last I shot before moving to LA and also the last of my NO MUSIC NO LIFE series. This explains the delay in sharing it since my computer was in a container on a boat crossing the Atlantic for a few months. Anyway, I’m all settled in now and I can finally share this photo.
Aaaaah… food! Love it or hate it! I know I, for one, love it! I’m not just talking about eating, I’m talking about food, haute cuisine. The best chefs in the world spend years trying to perfect a recipe, mix ingredients for a harmony of different tastes. They spend years developing their style. Sort of like photographers. Photographing food is a tough exercise. I’ve done it a couple of times and there are many tips and tricks to make the food look good. They do say we also “eat with our eyes”. That means the presentation is as important as the taste. So when Winston submitted his guest post about food photography, I thought it was a great idea! Have fun reading it and… bon appétit! — josh
Hello from the city of angels!
It’s been just a little over two weeks we have arrived in Los Angeles and it’s already starting to feel like home. The first week we decided to play tourists a bit and explore this gigantic city. It’s a lot of fun, there are loads to see and we are fare from being done exploring! We’ll keep that for the weekends and days off.
Alexis contacted me about a month ago and immediately chose «Paparazzi» by Lady Gaga. My first idea was to get out of the Paparazzi idea and shoot a different concept but after listening to the song, I really didn’t see what else I could do. In the end I am pretty happy with the image. It works well. The castle and park are really nice and glamorous, the starlet sunbathing is nice and Alexis, although a bit uncomfortable at first played a nice stalking photographer.
When Chrystelle chose «Where Is My Mind» as a song for NO MUSIC NO LIFE, I was immediately thrown back a few years and reminded of the time I first saw Fight Club. This was before the year 2000 for the younger readers among us. Continue reading article →
Right after we shot Kristell for You’ve Got the Love, we moved out of the garage to photograph Dominique for Aaron’s U-Turn, otherwise know as Lili.
This photo was a bit different and staged a bit more. Kristell was playing Lili, a low life junkie and Dominique was there to help her step out of her fake world. Continue reading article →
