New Book Cover – The Gathering


Recently my new book cover photo for the incredible NY Times Best Selling Author, Kelley Armstrong’s “The Gathering” hit shelves.

I was very excited when HarperCollins Publishers called me up for the new trilogy by Kelley. She is an incredible talent and from what I hear a sensational person. The people I’ve rec’d her books to, have become huge fans of hers after the first chapter. HC is one of my favorite clients, they love to create visually stunning work that captivates its audience, and they are just really great people to work for. The lead character’s name is Maya and HC made sure we stayed as true as we could to the characters Native American heritage when casting our model Michelle.

Michelle is gorgeous and a total sweetheart! We had a great time on set with a killer crew.

The Art Director is none other than Hillary Zarycky, graphic designer is super star Erin Fitzsimmons. Hair by the incredible Jamal Hodges. Makeup by the sweet Jennifer Nam.

The 2nd book cover has already showed up on-line, called “The Calling.” It hits shelves in 2012.

I’m very honored to be chosen to photograph another trilogy for Kelley and HarperCollins. Can’t wait for the next 2 books to come out! Congrats Kelley and HarperCollins on another smash hit!

The Vampire Diaries Hits Shelves

Here’s my first cover for the new Vampire Diaries trilogy by author L.J. Smith. The Vampire Diaries, The Return: Nightfall, is said to be a long overdue continuation to the original novels but well worth the wait. Already on the NY Times Bestsellers List, its no wonder that the rumors are flying that the WB will be making this series into a television show starting next fall. Those rumors have been confirmed  by Perez Hilton (so it must be true 😉 ) + the trailers have already started leaking all over the internet, the publishers have confirmed the rumors of the making of a pilot to air in September.

Book Two is already finalized and and waiting for release, and book three has already been shot and will be finalized soon. Book two has my fabulous friend Pi on the cover, you might recognize him from last years Gillette commercials. He is also in another fashion spread & cover I shot hitting news stands in Mexico this April. The third cover is a gorgeous model who is just as captivating in person as they are on film.
