Heading to Europe for the summer – Some good old news and new page in my life

Today, June 10th, 2012 i’m heading to Europe for the whole summer.

Packed with over 100 4X5 black and white sheets, 20 packs of polaroids, 50 rolls of 120mm film, couple of cloths and a camera, im ready to begin the unknown journey.

Looking forward to discover, to connect, to explore, to get lost and to create.

My main goals by going overseas this time, is to get inspired. to bring with me something new. to do more research and to develop more design in my eyes. and of course to have some fun, to study, to enjoy my beautiful girlfriend and to meet new people, networking and travel.

The past month was hectic with lots of jobs and projects. Videos and Editorials. Celebrities and Actors, Models and Artists coming into my studio non stop and blessing me with their beauty. Thank you everyone for being a part.

Article about my photography in DODHO MAGAZINE and being featured on June 2012 – issue #3.

I photographed the young singer Kiana Brown, that just signed with RCA / Sony Entertainment for her new promotion tour and her single album “Hey Chica”. she’s amazing and you can hear her voice through the images. Follow her and go to her FB page to view more images from a wonderful day with great people! Special thank to Brian Espinosa and Amy Goetz for the amazing time and the new friendship!

As well, i had great opportunity to photograph and to create a whole 2013 Calendar + Poster to the funny, charismatic, awesome actor – Texas Battle (The Bold And The Beautiful, Final Destination 3, Death Valley, Couch Carter and others..)

Texas is great character in person and it was pleasure to photograph him in different moods, scenarios and stages. And of course to capture his personality and his lifestyle.

Here is just a small teaser from what to be feature. Follow Texas on Twitter @Texas1Battle and on WhoSays.com to stay in touch with him and to see the full calendar when its out in Mid – June! Special thanks to Matt Lundin and Theresa Broadnax.
