Third in our series showcasing some portraits taken on assignment at the Black Gold Club, Miami. I was actually on assignment to only do a portrait of the owner of the club. The portrait I took was so-so and I was worried that my editor wouldn’t like it, so I asked the owner if I could take pictures of the club that night and he gave me full run of the place. I spent the majority of the time in the strippers changing rooms capturing these striking portraits. It was both a very educational and an eye opening night.
Here it is! A behind the scenes look at this fantastic project in collaboration with Nick Cave and Atlantic Records. Images from the album can be seen on our website: www.modaoud.com

Footage from our recent trip to Los Angeles and the desert. Driving around the city at night seems like a whole other world from it’s sunny, disneyland daytime counterpart.
Second in our series showcasing some of our documentary work spanning 20+ years.
When I first got into photography I had no access to studios and lighting so I would capture what was around me- the people I hung out with and the environments I lived and worked in. Looking back at this body of work I still continue to shoot in the same photographic style as when I first started out. Whether it’s the seedy clubs in London back in 1990 or this years image of a homeless man walking the streets of old downtown Vegas.

And of course Kevin, Andrea, Dina and all at Nike…. the list goes on and on.

Out of the blue I get a call from Nike asking if I would like to shoot a stop motion video. Yes of course, the catch; one week to shoot in New York, Portland, Los Angeles and Tokyo ! Plus they need material shipped to the editor after each day. Actually this was crazy fun for me ! Many thanks to creative director Kevin and to all involved in the production and logistics including Milana out in Japan.
