My Afternoon with David Archuleta

One of the distinct pleasures of being a professional photographer is getting to meet the most fascinating people up close. In New York, while working with photographer Sante D’Orazio, I had the privilege of working with a number of celebrities, many of whom I personally admired and was happy to get to hang out with on set.  And boy, were there many stories! I will never forget the time I found myself alone in the makeup room with Diana Ross; Or the time I took a swig from Keith Richards’ vodka after a shoot for Rolling Stone Magazine; Or the day I helped James Taylor locate his wife, who went missing in Milk Studios.  And there were more — Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, the Victoria’s Secret Girls, Mickey Rourke, Faith Hill, Jennifer Garner (with Ben Affleck in tow), the list goes on.

Anyway, just recently, I was happy to receive a call from Ivory Records, asking me to shoot David Archuleta, who was in town recording an album of OPM hits (Original Pilipino Music).  I must mention right off the bat that I am a huge fan of David’s, and remember rooting for him when he was competing in American Idol in 2008 — so imagine my excitement to actually be working with him. By the way, did you know that he got 44 percent of some 97 million votes that season? Amazing.

Happy to share photos from my afternoon with David — Two days, actually. The first was in the recording studio, and the second was on location for his album cover shoot. Enjoy!

In Loving Memory of Phyllis, David’s Twilight Angel :)

In loving memory of Phyllis, Oct 22, 1923 – Feb 29, 2012. Phyllis was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on Jan 23, 2012 and passed away Feb 29, 2012,  just seven weeks to the day of having her Twilight Wish granted by David Archuleta on Jan 11, 2012, thanks to Sunny Hilden & TWF. Phyllis was a five year breast cancer survivor as of Dec 2011, which she fought valiantly in her eighties, only to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer Jan 23, 2012.  Pancreatic cancer is an insidious disease, which is usually diagnosed at it’s advanced stage when it is too late. The disease took our sweet Phyllis from us in less than five weeks. We can change the future, together we can make a difference. Let us all “Imagine” a world with no more cancer. Thank you:)
