I don’t want perfect and pretty,

I want rough and raw, 

something real.


we are delicate. 

but we are wrapped up and chained to an idea that does not really exist. 


we endlessly search for ways to break through the chains before the chains break us.

but the wheel of life does not stop turning.


sometimes the chains get so tight you find yourself gasping for air.

so breathe in and be still.

separate yourself from all you have known to be real, 

from what you have been told. 


you may be broken down, 

but the rebirth is worth it all. 

and once you realize that you control the strength of the chains, 

you may be freed from it all.

War Twins Tour

“We are War Twins. For the last five years we lived as punk rock pirates in a van and toured the US. This is the American Kids tour, a two month journey across the US to promote our new album produced by Sylvia Massy, the queen of unhinged audio. Welcome to art rock grunge pop. “


Life on the road is exhilarating , inspiring, raw, and exhausting. Much like the rock n’ roll lifestyle itself, the road is a doorway to mesmerizing and unparalleled imagery. Each day is a new city and a new opportunity to capture powerful messages through visual moments. Whether it’s the natural beauty of the southwest desert or a single moment of hotel recklessness, each photo is a memory that is not to be forgotten. In this segment, we’ll be updating you about our experiences, findings, and perceptions that are generated throughout this subversion-fueled journey across America. -Z

Floating On Water had always been a form of relaxation for me. I always felt at peace and as if I was floating above the world itself. I had always wanted to recreate the idea of floating on water through a photo shoot but add a twist. I thought a model in a swimming pool sounded really unflattering but ironically one summer day at a party I had seen a pair of ballons floating above a pool and the idea blossomed from that sight. I had held on to the idea for some time untill I felt I was ready. Months had past and after numerous photoshoots, this concept was finally ready to come to life. I grabbed my go to model, and we went to work. The end result , Floating on Water.

I only Dance in 8in Heels

Somewhere between night and day we land in this Detroit high rise apartment, pole in the middle of the room. Somewhere between playful and playboy we decide ‘Why go nude when you can have hearts for nipples? And somewhere, through the art of the dance we learn, that the 7 inch heal is practically a flat, and one should only dance in 8 in heels

Customer Relations

A photo series that depicts the effects brands may have on their customers. The set is meant to encourage thought and discussion, no formal explanations of each piece exist because with today's media each person has some sense of familiarity from product advertising/branding they can draw from to interpret what is being displayed.

Valentine's Day

Escapists tend to focus on one thing that takes up their entire world, whether it’s love, money, status, alcohol, or even travel. It can be a good thing or a bad thing. The point is to avoid living in reality and weathering the ups and downs of everyday life. The point is to have a goal and keep pushing for that goal. “This will fix everything,” you say. “This is the answer to all of my prayers.”

When We're Together

I took an adorable candid photo of these two in embrace at a local instameet and after the meet, I posted the photo on Instagram and got a message from Davina about getting together and doing a whole shoot with them as a couple. After hashing out a time and date we met up at their friends house to hang and shoot. Davina and Faith are super into each other which made all the shots amazing because it was so natural. They're both incredibly beautiful and so fun to hang with. We had a fucking blast making photos and laughing the evening away. Their love is amazing and is so infectious. I shot all these on a Minolta xg-1 with a 50mm f/1.4 Lens with a roll of kodak portra 400 and a roll of Fujifilm Superia xtra400.

Silk Voices

Deep in your own head is a place that can be all too real. In this vignette we follow a girl as she is both suffocated and liberated by the voices in her head.

Finding Home

I feel like this was at a time in my life where I was really trying to figure out exactly what I wanted from where I was. I was in San Diego at the time and it wasn't necessarily where I wanted to be, but it was closer. I was living with family sharing a bed with my eight year old cousin and commuting to LA whenever I could, and around that time I was having a lot of doubts. I moved to LA a few months later, and still am trying to figure out what I want from here, but I think there's something every place you go gives you, and San Diego was a beginning point for me and I'm very thankful for that
