Cowboy of Marina Del Rey

Meet Jeffery Patterson. Actor // Producer. Cowboy of Marina Del Rey.

I had the pleasure of shooting Jeffery a few weeks back for a magazine spread. The idea was to capture this handsome dude, and embrace his country charm while set against the marina background
that is now his home. I'd say we nailed it.

From head shots to magazine spreads, product shots and music videos… Duff Images is doing it all.

Keep up with Jeffery and his latest projects here:

Carney's Hot Dogs and the Elinchrom Octabox...

I had a great time testing out my new Elinchrom Octabox light during one of my shoots last weekend. I've often rented the Elinchrom Octabox for shoots in the past, as it really helps to achieve that "Vanity Fair" cover look… but I decided to bite the bullet and get one of my very own. It's so worth it.

Check out 19 year old Dominic, a young boy a scouted and discovered while he and his dad were eating at Carney's Hot Dogs in Studio City… all good things come from Carney's. ;)

Vacation Photography
I want my vacation photographs to feel like a vacation all over again just by looking at them! Seeing the scenery is not enough. Seeing the people you were with is not enough but capturing moments of action and emotion become memorable to not only you but those who were not even there. And don't be afraid to ask someone to do something again.."Jump off that mountain again, or stick that mud back on your face..." You and they will love having that moment to look back on! I also like to capture the scenery in a slightly different way. If God made the mountain, it's your obligation to uniquely capture it with your camera!

Family Portraits

Whether its for formal purposes or just documenting your family, capturing fun, spontaneous moments in a professional way is one of the greatest gifts you can give your family or friends. Everyone loves looking at family photos but not so much getting them done :) not only do i make it fun, but it has become a yearly tradition for many of my clients (shown here with the Dodson family)

Family Photography
Photographing kids is not always easy. A well seasoned actor  or model are usually the most  comfortable and willing subjects but the 2-4 yr old boy....not so willing! But I will tell you that the results are so satisfying that I grin ear to ear looking over the proofs...always!! The Willing are great to shoot, and I have learned that the Unwilling usually end up stunning! No fair I say!! :)

Results of the Last Poll!

The latest poll asked what job have you done that gave you most flexibility to audition. Most said "Waiter/Waitress". There was a tie between Personal Assistant and working a 9-5 job (with an understanding boss) Real Estate Agent and TV/Movie Extra Work were out of luck! Check out this weeks poll and stay tuned for the results! :)
