My latest photo shoot with Actor/Singer/Musician Darius McCrary

20 Nov

This was my second shoot with Darius McCrary.  Darius is currently working with music industry veteran DJ Quik on his upcoming CD.  I got a chance to hear snippets of his tracks at our shoot in Stone Canyon.  I was very impressed.  We all know he can act but wait till you hear his voice!

“Darius McCrary is best known for his role as Eddie Winslow on the long-running television series “Family Matters.” He began his career in Hollywood at the age of ten. McCrary, who is also a songwriter and music producer, is the son of Grammy-nominated gospel/jazz musician Howard McCrary and older brother of actor Donovan McCrary.”



Los Angeles Headshots – Artist Angela Robinson and wife of funnyman John Witherspoon

17 Nov

I was asked to do headshots of actress and art collector Angela Robinson, wife of comedienne John Witherspoon.  Angela is the owner of Artpeace Gallery in North Hollywood, CA

Angela Robinson has been an artist her entire life. She remembers getting out of “new math” to do the bulletin boards for her 5th grade teacher. At 19, she was an art director for CBS, and worked closely with Max Robinson and Warner Wolf. Later, she studied at Pratt Institute in New York City. “It is so much fun to teach people that you can light up a room with great art. “I put new slip-covers on my couches and great art on the wall above it, and people love my decor and rarely ask about the sofa….it’s all about the art!” Angela’s client base consists of Nicole & Eddie Murphy, and sports personality, Chris Webber, Shaquille O’Neal, Alonzo Mourning, Sharon Stone and many others.


Music Photography – Hollywood photo shoot with hip hop artist The Original StyLis

5 Nov

Born Jerohn McGregor, now The Original StyLis, McGregor is sought after by other aspiring artists and has been featured on numerous projects, including the remix of Jill Scott’s “Golden.” He has penned numerous songs for record companies and artists alike. His efforts did not go unnoticed as his talents were recognized by the producers of Diamondmine Productions. These industry veterans have expanded his repertoire to include Rock to Reggae, all the while, maintaining his delivery for pop audiences everywhere. He has skillfully honed his craft through live performance featured appearances with touring acts. StyLis is currently recording his much anticipated freshman project – “With Or Without.” This expression of experiences shares great insight into the life, love and struggles of a young man. Singles entitled, “Imagination,” “Kid Again,” and “Broken Cup!” reflect the truth he has survived.
