Sneak Peak - SCPG: Ultimate Shootout 8 - US8 Magazine

Coming soon to a newsstand near you!
I couldn't resist making a GQ inspired for the Ultimate Shootout 8 since the theme of this shoot was "Commerical."

SCPG - Ultimate Shootout 7 - Salton Sea Shoot (Part 2)

Here's the final part from the early December SCPG Ultimate Shootout 7 (US7) out at the Salton Sea.  Seriously it was worth the the 2 hour drive from San Diego.
US7 was a great not just because of it's location but also because of the talented passionate people that I got a chance to work it.  The Glam Squad - Britney, Keith, Veronica, & Mariah did such a great job on the models!  The Models where amazing - Michelle, Jose, Justyn, Niki, Esmi, Aly, Victoria, and others where just a pleasure to work with and photograph.  And lastly the photographers, all of them where great to watch, learn, joke around with, and hang out with.
So check out the following slideshow to see the excitement that comes these shoots.  Enjoy! :)

Sneak Peak - Jamie + Victor - Balboa Romance

After a week filled with rain, storms, and craziness of the holidays it was pleasure to get away for a time to photograph one of my best couples.  Jamie and Victor where so much fun to work with during there late evening shoot in Balboa Park.  Balboa Park at this time of night can be a scary place but Jamie & Victor made it such a romantic and fun night of shooting.  It was so much fun that we lost track of time and by the time we knew it was past midnight.
In addition to working with Jamie and Victor, I had a great pleasure to work with Jamie's sister, Janelle and her boyfriend John.  They help make the shoot happen with Janelle and John watching out for the details and holding camera and lighting equipment for me when I needed.
Thank you guys for such a great evening of shooting.  I can't wait to work you guys again.  :)

Trash the Dress (Part 2) - What's Trash the Dress?!

Wait, what?!  Trash Wedding Dress?!  Oh NO!  But, Oh YES!  In November I had an opportunity to "Trash" some wedding dresses.  To "Trash the Dress" is not simply just to rip dresses apart but to artistically and dramatically use Wedding Dresses in ways that you wouldn't during your wedding day.  Check out the pictures below after the Jump.

Premier Catering - Project Concern International - 50th Anniversary Celebration

A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure to photograph for Premier Catering for their hosting of Project International's 50th Anniversary.  This was the second year in the row that I photographed this event for Premier.  It was Premier and my friend Michelle that gave me the opportunity to practice, learn, and grow in photography.  For that I am forever grateful to them.
