Here are my top ten photo shoots of 2010. The criteria? The ones that were very memorable and always bring a smile on my face. In no particular order.
10. MOOSE Magazine – My first tearsheet!! This was a shoot for Madrid-based Fashion & Art magazine MOOSE Magazine for their second issue on April 2010. I have a beyond-awesome team with top-notch models Alicia Pulver and Paula Newlands, along with makeup artist/ hairstylist Shelly Cross, stylist Arianna Barrera, and photography assistant Robert Jue.
9. Phuong My Test Shoot - I responded to a casting from a new designer in San Francisco named Phuong My. Little did I know she was going to become one of my closests and dearest friends in this industry. Phuong My has also been a very influential part in both my personal and photography life. For this shoot, I had models Anna Ochal and Jasmin Rizzo and Makeup/Hairstylist Keke. I would later on do more shoots with her, including ones with Mirela P.

8. Parluxe Catalog Shoot – This shoot was for a high-end Vietnamese retail clothing company. I had the privilege of working with models Lauren Currie (LOOK Models), Victoria Pham (who is also a famous Vietnamese beauty queen!) and Lanisa BuenaVista. I had a very fun and energetic team around me: Mike Polce and Phillip Wang as my assistants, Sarah Dean as the makeup artist, and Noelle Lynn as the hairstylist.
