LVPPP (La Verne Parent Participation Preschool) is a non-profit cooperative preschool in La Verne, California. It needed a video that showcased not only the school and it’s students, but that revealed the community and culture of a mostly volunteer preschool. Parents have a large place in the school, so we wanted to show that and the love that everyone has for the children. This commercial video shows that joy.
LVPPP is a co-op preschool in La Verne and services San Dimas, Claremont, Glendora, Azusa, Pomona, Upland, Covina, and West Covina.
Here are corporate portraits done for APEX, a non-profit for Asian professionals based in Los Angeles (with some events in Orange County too). Every year I do headshots of the board. They had requested both a white background (easier for website and print usage) and a gray background. I often provide multiple lighting or backdrop settings, based on the number of portraits needed and time available. This is an example of what is delivered for an entire shoot (>300 images) and how a variety of images is captured for each individual.
This is food photography of a lobster tail main course at a French Vietnamese fusion restaurant. It is covered with a light tempura batter and a tamarind sauce, served in the lobster shell. This food photography was used in their print advertisements and social media.
ENO Brands is a company based in Orange County that specializes in jewelry and is expanding into other areas. I shoot their portraits every year and we do a combination of outdoor, natural light portraits along with indoor, studio lighting portraits on a pure white background. We also get a photo of all the employees for their yearly Christmas card.
This is a food photograph of an oyster appetizer in a sushi restaurant. It is lit using studio strobes on location in the restaurant. This gives it a clean white background, which was ideal for their menu and websites.
Here are corporate portraits I did for the APEX board in 2017. APEX is a non-profit for Asian professionals based in Los Angeles (also with events in Orange County). This year they only requested a gray background, so we went with a more narrow depth of field (softer images when seen up close) using a soft wash of light from the right. This created a more dramatic portrait than the more standard portraits usually requested. Here is an example of an entire shoot as it was delivered, which was over 200 images.
