Spent a day running around LA with the boys of Ojivolta for some new promos. Totally obsessed with “Game Plan”– check it out!
Carrie Lane is double threat singer/model (obviously). I had a promo shoot with this super hip/super sweet lady in Silver Lake earlier this summer, and theses are some of my faves! Check her out on Spotify, and check these photos featured on PopCrush, Yahoo!, Vanyaland, & Atwood Magazine (so far)!
Shooting with my great friend Evan’s new music project, Saint Loretto!
I recently got to shoot with this talented beauty! Sierra Sikes is an Oklahoma artist off to perform in LA.
Not only is Matt of Rebel Revive a super talented musician, but an all-around great person and friend. Check out our photo shoot in downtown LA from a few weeks ago!

I am so excited to finally announce the series that I’ve been working on for a looooong time, and the show where I will be debuting it! The theme is… wait for it…. ok, you already know- it’s zombies. Zombies meets high fashion, that is.
Brass Bell Studios will host a show opening for my conceptual editorial series, Zombies Are People Too, on Sunday, October 7th from 4:00pm- 7:00pm. Brass Bell Studio is located on the corner of NW 33rd & Villa in Oklahoma City. There is no admission cost, and the show will include a cash bar. After the opening, showings will be available by appointment during the month of October.
Check out the show website to watch the show trailer/sneak peek of one of the zombie shoots created by Andrew Sloat:
The idea was conceived years ago while doing a photo assignment for my fashion class. I made up my models to look like zombies to add some sort of creative interest in an otherwise very strait forward technical learning exercise. Since then, I’ve wanted to do an entire series, but take the time to do it right. It’s always been in the back of my mind. Last year, with the help of some awesome people, I decided to make it happen.
I’ve always been drawn to this dark aesthetic- kinda eery and creepy. I’m well-versed in B-horror movies, and Halloween is my favorite holiday. Obviously shooting weddings doesn’t really call for this style much (except of course in the case of the zombie engagement shoot), so when I have the opportunity to shoot photos with an edge, I’m very creatively motivated. I do however have an outlet in this realm when I’m working on some band promos or fashion shoots. (Now, I do want to clarify that the zombie aspect is truly meshed with fashion, so if scary movies aren’t your thing, rest assured that this will be fairly tame. Bloody/gory isn’t part of the vision in this case.)
For this series, I’ve worked with a handful of male and female models and the shoots take place in locations across Oklahoma. I couldn’t have done it without the help of Jessica Fulton, owner of Siren Beauty Lounge. She has been the makeup artist on the series, executing my vision perfectly! I’ve also worked with some fun and eager models who I’m excited to reveal at the show.
It has been a huge undertaking, but I’m extremely excited, and I think it will be the most personally important show I’ve done to date. Hope you can make it! Don’t forget to RSVP to the Facebook event!
Here’s my piece hanging on the gallery wall titled “Hitchcock Dreams”. It was purchased within the first couple hours of the weekend-long show!
Momentum artists have the awesome opportunity to include works under $30 in the Momentum Market. Of course, I included my Foliage accessories, which did quite well! The exposure to such a targeted market was great. You can find out more about Foliage accessories in this Facebook album.
For the last couple years, Momentum has been held at the OKC Farmer’s Market. It’s a beautiful building that is probably most well-known for it’s eye-catching number of white, paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling. It has a great balcony for overlooking the room, from which I snagged this pano shot:
