Till then, peace!

Update: Terri Vaughn

Hey Everyone, Congrats to Barack Obama and Joe Biden for becoming the 44th President and Vice President sworn in today! History has been Made!

Anywho, the reason I'm giving you this update is to let you know about a recent shoot I did for The Humor Mill Magazine with Actress/Comedienne Terri Vaughn.

She was an ABSOLUTE sweetheart to work with. She is hysterically funny, and a great celebrity to have worked with!

My images of her will be featured on the Cover of Humor Mill Magazine in the coming weeks. Also, I will have a behind the scenes video up from her shoot on my page (

That's all for now, until next time.

Peace + Prosperity for the USA!

Hurray for January 20, 2009!

Today is a Historical Day! The Inauguration of the 44th President Barack Hussein Obama(first African American President), and Vice President Joseph Biden!

This is CHANGE for America.

As a young person in the United States of America, and being someone of "color" and being a part of a segregated section of the USA (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered) community, today marks the Dawn of a New Day and Era for the United States of America.

I am truly proud to be an American!

I know that it will not be a change overnight, and it will take the work of EVERYONE in the U.S.A. to pitch in and make a change, and help our newly appointed President execute his vision.

Take Care, and Enjoy the New Day in History. January 20, 2009!

Oh What a Day!

Well, me oh my!

It was a long and hard working day for Allen Zaki. That is for certain.

I had a photoshoot this morning (Monday 1/12/09) at 10am with model Monique Calhoun (America's Next Top Model, model) and wardrobe stylist Chris Mannor (Glam God on VH1 with Vivica A Foxx). Hair and makeup by Teal Druda.

This was the first shoot in a long time that I have had fun, been creative, and LOVED shooting fashion in a LONG time. Most of my most recent work as been celebrity/comedy work, which I love, but Fashion is where its just AWESOME!

I also started shooting more polaroids, and medium format film today, I'm trying to get back to the Old School feel of film, and really have fun with my work. There is just something about film that I can't get out of my digital work, so I just love shooting film, polaroids are my favorite. They just make it so much more fun to have something tangible when you're shooting...seeing the final product, a moment after you shot it. (Puts a Smile on my Face).

Anywho, so afer shooting 7 (seven) looks with Monique and the crew, we wrapped up at 5:30pm, and I had another shoot to do that night.

At 8pm I went to photograph "Defying Inequality" an event in West Hollywood, Ca to promote equality and civil rights (for gays and lesbians). The cast member's from the four North American companies of "WICKED" the musical performed for the benefit. I was photographing the event, taking group shots of the casts and some celebrities that were at the event. It was held at "The Factory" in WeHo.

Needless to say, I didn't get out of there until now that my day has wrapped. Good night! (or good morning) and I shall talk to you all in the near future.

Kick'n it Old School

I came across this video of The Millen Sister's who I've shot multiple times now. They are an amazing pair of girls (twins), who can sing, act, and model their way to the top.

You might have seen them in their most recent project for Got Milk?

check out their video here:

Great young ladies, whom I love to work with. Thanks Sabrina and Sonya.

Youtube Video to come

So, I recently shot for Fine Novelty Premium Denim their S/S Collection and F/W Collection. They are a new Denim line located here in Los Angeles, CA

My images are going to Launch the brand. Co-Owner and Designer Don Valenzuela was a blast to work with, and his line is absolutely amazing (looking for the right pair of jeans this spring, Fine Novelty Premium Denim). Don V is talented, and brings a simple, and clean look to the denim world.

Getting back to the title of the posting, I will soon have a new video up on my channel of my shoot with Fine Novelty, and more to come!

So, check in, and check out my older videos at:
