Julie & Ryan

I’m still thinking about this wedding. Julie and Ryan are one of those couples who exude togetherness. To anyone around, its quite obvious that they’re meant for each other. It’s hard to explain, but they just fit. It’s romantic and sappy perhaps, but I believe there is true love and I’ll go on the record…

Burning Man & The Great Ticket Shortage of 2012

Today, the Burning Man Organization will announce its new policies regarding tickets to this year’s event. Growth, permit concerns and an aging ticket system has taken its toll and has caused, what many burners see as a huge disaster. Many of the amazing and mind-blowing art and projects that makes Burning Man what it is…

Meant to Be – Jonathan & Charity’s Wedding

Jonathan and Charity are some of our closest and dearest friends, so you can imagine how elated we were when we found out they were getting married. These two are meant for each other. It’s not every day some of your best friends get married in a mind-blowing building built in 1929 in Santa Barbara,…

Jesse Rosten’s iPad photo shoot.

I wish I had taken this shot. Better yet, I wish I had had this idea. Jesse Rosten, one of my favorite sources of inspiration for all things camera and video, came up with the idea of lighting an entire shoot with iPads. Turns out, he broke out the meter and at ISO800 1/60, he…

Jupiter over Los Angeles (self-portrait)

I was waiting for my wife Heather to get home from Dallas when I decided to run up to Griffith Observatory to take a few shots.  As usual, the view was great, but not so usual, the view was very clear. Isn’t the universe awesome? Jupiter has been good to me this year. Canon 7D…

My 8,000 mph drive to Vegas, etc.

Its all about video today: 1. I assembled a timelapse of my drive to Rollercon 2010 in Las Vegas this year and you should watch it. Every year, my wife’s band the Pin Ups, plays a show at the Double Down in Sin City, known for its signature drink, Ass Juice. The show kicks off…

Jamie & David

Have you ever met a couple with a smiling, quiet confidence, as if they know some secret you don’t? Jamie & David have that mysterious and cool connection. We spent an afternoon with them taking photos and exploring Apollo Park. We give a free engagement session with every wedding that we book. It allows us…

Jennifer & Jason

You know, once in a while, something comes along that is just perfect. Sometimes, its a mate.  Not only are these two perfect for each other, but they were also the perfect client. Heather and I are new to weddings and could not have found a more interesting couple to shoot for our first big…

Villains

If you know me, you know I love music. I spent about 5 years as a concert promoter before I became a full-time photographer and have played many concerts in many bands. We threw hundreds of shows from the Vandals to Avenged Sevenfold and the Aquabats to the Horropops. Music makes great photography. I like…

Kill Bill Church and more faces

Heather and I have been meaning to to head out to the East side of town to explore the church where Beatrix Kiddo was (almost) murdered. If you’re a Tarantino fan like I am, you’ll recognize the place. This lovely church featured in Kill Bill pt. 1 has been on our list of locations for…

Pets and Parents

For a slideshow of these images, please click here. I’ve been trying to hone the portrait skills a lot lately. The more I learn about light, it seems the less I know. Every subject is different and its not always a simple task to record the essence of someone’s personality in 1/250th of a second….

The latest.

All images taken with EF 28-135 or EF-S 55-250 IS , Canon 7D. Things are getting a little crazy at school right now, so I haven’t been out and about as much as I normally prefer (studying for finals). The day light is also slowly retreating for a few more weeks as the sun approaces…
