Not Missing, Just Busy

December 12, 2010

Having been a little longer than forever since posting something to this blog and not for reasons being a lack of content. It just seems since June everything I have photographed has been Copyrighted, Content Restrictive or flat out not of interest to this blog. In the same time frame I have gained an additional terabyte of RAW images and yet still can not come up with something that is sharable for one reason or another.

Today while archiving I decided to share these outtakes of light & exposure checks, etc. From a magazine advertisement set I shot for Performance Machine Inc. about a month ago. The shoot went really well, the model had a great personality, the stylists were not bitchy and the client was gracious and I have been told that the first of these AD’s run next month, so I will damn well share those images once the client releases the AD’s for their upcoming 2011 season catalog to the printer. Having seen the comps I know the AD’s look awesome, my friend / client Andy Meadors was the art director as well as doing all the post production himself (pictured lower right).

Even in my documentary work lately there seems to be some reason as to not show the images, just last week I was in Mexico scouting a future outreach trip, yet still all of the contacts need to have a couple of meetings to decide if this is a viable project, thus the images are under wraps lest someone get excited prematurely.

BUT come Christmas Day Christi and I are in Las Vegas at Las Vegas Harley Davidson photographing The Broken Chains homeless outreach as we did last year as well and since it is a time donation, there will be no image restrictions and I can show you as many as I wish.

If it was not for my iPhone and the photos that get published to my Twitter/Facebook accounts, I would go into artistic insanity (more than usual) from lack of having an outlet. So go subscribe if you miss my images : )

Lost & Found

July 7, 2010

This image has resided on my desktop in a folder without a name for a long awhile now. Which is odd for me because every so often on a day like today my computers begin to feel claustrophobic, so I either back everything up to an auxiliary drive, toss it away or shove into a folder labeled DMZ only to be tossed away permanently soon there after anyways because when that folder appears too full it makes me claustrophobic as well.
But this one stray little untitled folder containing a single image has been granted a pardon from my draconian filing time & again. Each time I open this folder thinking “what is this untitled folder and why does it exist?!” then I look at the image and think, I like this, perhaps it should be used on the blog or the website? Then I get distracted, never use it — repeat… Today the folder leaves my desktop.

Project Ethos III — for the record…

October 5, 2008


The other day I posted about Project Ethos that yielded the comment “Just for the record this look was by me – Jen Garcia…”
So I emailed her and we talked and I sent her a contact sheet of the images from her line and asked her to pick 3 of her favorites which would be included in this post.

So for the record, I would like to introduce to you my brand new friend Jennifer, she is a clothing designer for Vim Trousseau and these images are from her Spring/Summer 2009 collection “Cosmic Girl”
Jen’s Website is here go check out her fashions and she what she looks like herself as well.

Project Ethos Fashion Show

September 29, 2008

A model friend of mine asked me to shoot a fashion show for her at the Avalon Theater in Hollywood CA this past Friday. She has moved away from modeling and is now concentrating her efforts on collaborating with the line of clothes from Street Youth Couture From Unwanted Kids (yes the acronym spells that)
There is some video that someone shot during the last portion of the show, for one second at the 10 second mark you can see me on the extreme right hand side I am the center white blob. Caution the video is R rated HERE

This is a 1700 or so frame rough edit of my night and slightly less R rated…
The occasional head you will see pop in some of the photos is a film crew that was operating directly in front of me and every so often the guy that kept pushing the trolley? back and forth would stand up from his crouching position.
