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.

7. LANY Handbags – One of the biggest productions I have ever dealt with: 10 models (too many to type!), 2 makeup artists (Sarah Dean and Ignacio Maciel), 2 hairstylists (Shelly Cross and Keke), 2 hotels (Parc 55 and Hotel Vitale), 1 amazing stylist named Lim Konberg, 1 photography assistant, and 1 coordinator (Melissa Villarama) and her assistant (Chris Hobson) all shot in two days.

6. Maxime Kumler (Miss Pacifica 2010) – The most beautiful girl I have ever worked with. Maxime is a natural beauty and has always made my portfolio shine. This shoot was for her Miss Pacifica promo shots with Jessica Lee as our hair and makeup artist. Mike Polce was also my photography assistant. For my old post of this event, click here

Time for bed. Will continue #5-#1 later.
