Heather and Eric Engaged!

My dear friends Heather Robertson and Eric Trine just got engaged!
These are some of my most favorite people, AND they're getting married! Dang, what could be better!
Here are images I took at their engagement party.

Cheers Heather and Eric!
Watchout Grace Ormonde, Ira's gonna wanna publish this wedding and I can't see any other magazine that would be more fitting... but I won't say anything until I see blue prints for the wedding itself. Until then, enjoy some deluxe people in these fancy pictures.

The Artery @ The LAB

The show went well, I was happy with my piece, a great turnout added to the fun and I took a few fun pictures from the opening.
The show is up until the 3rd of November. Go see it @ The LAB (behind Urban Outfitters)

Alright children, enjoy your day.


Checkout the Bro Futurists on myspace. They're a great group of guys that kick out some amazing work. They work together and indepdendatly to create and be apart of a changing culture... culture formers.
"The Bro Futurists"

My piece was at the entrance...so it made me happier then I usually would have been.

Winter Weather equals more beard?

Yeah it sure does, infact its made me more productive, the ladies tend to love it (who cares if they're cougars?) keep me warm when I'm supposed to be cold, makes me look like I belong in plaid and holding an axe... its my newest accessory... may I introduce you to.... my beard!

Ira shot these of me at the Cook wedding, Rancho Las Lomas last weekend.

Is this my computer or my pillow? Wow!

I'm busy! Crazy busy, wacko busy, insane-o busy, extremely busy and maybe even too busy for real words... (Wambastically busy).
The good Lord hath blessed me w/work.
So I'm going to get right back too it once I finish this little blog update.

•working 40+ hours a week as the new Studio manager (LA branch)
•working nights editing personal jobs, favors and trying to keep a small social life(which pretty much means talking to the employees at Femima connivance store and the occasional homeless person I pass by, on the way to get energy drinks)
•Art Show this Saturday at *THE LAB* in Costa Mesa.
•Upcoming feed the Homeless ride. stay tuned.

I'm planning 2 trips right now... actually 3! Cuba, Uganda and NY (for thanksgiving with my brother)
Cuba has been the tough one...I'm trying to get a AP pass, but its harder then it looks... Trying to work with some friends at CBS and getting clues and hints how to get in. I want to document the beautiful country and really take it all in...this will be a phototrip that I've invited 3 other guys on (Wignall,Trine and Sjoberg) we'll see if they actually end up coming w/me... otherwise I'll be on my own.
Uganda in January... I need to buy these tickets too! Probably heading up the crew of 4-6 people. A two week trip to some of the most remote areas of Africa, working with invisible children, ServLife and various other non profit charities.
January 14th, after Bronson and Chelcie's wedding.

NYC thanksgiving chillen w/Ira and his new brownstone apartment in the upper westside of Manhattan.

I have a new intern.
Allison is crazy busy w/her own personal job and school, so I needed someone else to help me edit and teach the photography trade...I'm always looking for trust worthy, talented individuals that are interested in becoming photographers... I like teaching and more over, I like watching people progress and work for me for free... its a win win situation for everyone.

Thats my update!
I've been really enjoying this restaurant on 2nd st. "The Magic Lamp" go check it out. I'm really craving it right now!

10 photoshoots to post-produce.
1 more tomorrow nite.

Cheers to productive late nights huddled around the G5.

"How Am I Not Myself"

Come to the show, bring your friends, your family, your favorite celebrity, yourself dressed as a french dietitian. Just come...bring your ID if you like drinking beer (or even smelling it).
This is my best piece yet...your sure to enjoy a long stare.

Heres the shake down.

Picture of the week

I took this picture of Kristen Brockman on my patio.
She was assisting me with a shoot, as well as styling her sister for her senior pictures. This shot was taken while we were taking a break. Kristen is an amazing model, even when shes not expecting to be shot, shes still looking good in front of a camera.

Images from Kelsi's shoot to come, as well as maybe a shot from Nery and June's engagement shoot.
I'm sooo busy!!!
