Kennedy Meadows in Yosemite, CA

I had a little trip up to Kennedy Meadows for a family trip.  While I was there i took the opportunity to take some pictures for the folks running the resort, campground and horse excursion park.  I think they turned out fairly nice.

Now shooting at the Attic Studios in Downtown San Jose!

The scales have finally tipped.  I now have dedicated access to a very cool studio located in downtown San Jose.  The location is in the bell tower of the old B of A building, which is one of the oldest buildings in downtown.  There is over 2000 square feet of shooting potential.  I finally will have a dedicated home for all the crazy equipment I have been stockpiling.  

Bring on the medium format digital head shots!

Tate Moore Shoot

I had the pleasure of working with Tate Moore this weekend for about two hours.  Below are a couple of shots from the shoot.  We hiked down to a water reservoir we stumbled across in Campbell California.  there were these really cool islands in the middle that if we had the right equipment, would have been fantastic to shoot on.  Perhaps next time.

Quick trip to San Diego

I took a quick trip to San Diego recently.  Time i brought along an old friend, Hasselblad 500CM with a 120mm lens.  This is probably the best lens they make for this camera, so a good choice second to the standard 80mm.  I only had a few roles of film with me, so i wanted to really be particular with my shots.  With very little light, and some scouting... i was able to pull off two shots that i really liked, using people i met while traveling.  Thank you to both strangers for helping me walk away with some really great souvenirs. 


Photo Shoot with Paul Feradas

I had the pleasure of working on a shoot with my good friend Paul this weekend.   It was nice to finally put my sunbounce reflectors and sun swatter to use.  I must say the sun swatter got the most love.  It worked great as both a defuser for cutting the harsh sun as well as when placed close to a model, it bacame a really nice soft light source.  In these two shots take from my new Mamiya AFD II and Leaf Aptus 75, you can see the huge differnce in light quality placing the sun swatter between the model and the late afternoon sun.
