Check out these screen-grabs from the new MarcoSquared.com website. Marco is one of the most talented designers I know and though he mostly designs for women he has created a new line of underwear for men. You will soon be able to purchase these, but in the meantime there is a very cool slide-show teaser of what’s to come on his website.

For those of you who don’t know, Marco is the man behind the wardrobe on the shoots I’ve done with Syesha Mercado (like this one)

New Works Part II.

Posted in Baskit, Fashion, Male Models, models, New Work, Photo Essay, Toky Photography, We Are All Smith by tokyphotography on July 7, 2011

I’ve been working a lot with the awesome guys from BaskitWear for the last few months. Mostly shooting product and look book images which are always very simple and to the point. Recently they asked me to photograph their new ads/promo images in a creative setting. The basic idea was a rock-climbing trip. In came by buddy Jake who is a rock climber … and after a lot of planning … I did a great shoot with them. Just like my We Are All Smith look book shoot, I realize how much I enjoyed shooting “stories” that when seen together there is a visual thread but also each image can stand on its own as a single shot. Here’s a sneak peek of one of the shots that’s on the Baskit website now. More to come….

You can barely see it, but the flat screens around the venue were playing a slideshow of my work as well.

Rehearsals are great. All the fun and zero pressure!

Ali with the girls

Though strict policy here at the Toky Photography blog to only feature work by yours truly, some of these images are from fellow photographers David Ariaza (who I hadn’t seen in ages) and Cori Alegria (who I’m glad got to hold a camera again).

One more post from the show coming soon.

* A shout-out to Carrie from Boulevard 3 for supporting the local emerging artists and all the crew at Blvd 3 for being such gracious hosts. Also Kyle for doing such a great job hanging my work.

What a great show!

The shots nobody liked (except me) No.1

Posted in Beauty, Outtakes, Toky Photography by tokyphotography on September 29, 2009

The title says it all. Some shots everyone vetoed and ended up never being used, for anything. Yet, for some strange reason -I- love. This is one my favorites:

No one liked this No. 1

No one liked this No. 1

Now, I know this is not my style. But still….
