So here it is, Bun B's new record with the cover photo by your's truly, I had no idea what it was going to look like or what they were going to do. The story behind how I got this photo of him was pretty funny, and sort of random. But I guess randomness is a pretty common occurrence between him and I since I met him a while ago, while playing and advanced version of Def Jam Icon as him. Kind of weird, and well a year later he is now using photos that I shot of him on his tour bus wrap, I for sure have to get some photos of that when it comes to LA.

Here is another party that I will be working at for Scion in a few weeks, I am pretty excited, I love these guys, and well now that I drive a Scion I better be good to these guys, so they can hook it up when ever I need parts. I think its' funny how they promote me on this flyer by writing some of the people I have shot for. I doubt that would help drive kids to this event, but hell, one could only hope there is a gaggle of young ladies that are coming to a party looking to get discovered by me.

There are very few people out there that make me instantly happy when I see them and Young Tui just happens to be one of them. To the right you will see an artists rendition of him on his preferred method of transportation, a dolphin sliding down a rainbow. Well, we will be celebrating his new hair doo and the day he turns a quarter of a century old!

K Fed was one lucky man, Shar Jackson is quite a dish

I always look a bit awkward in photos like this, but KT looks good, so I'll throw myself on the grenade for this one. I really have no idea how the ladies do it around Sundance, I put on as many layers as possible before I go outside, where the ladies on the other hand, go and doll themselves up and don't mind freezing as long as they look good doing it. Crazy stuff. For the first time in a long time I wasn't the designated photographer for an event, and it was awesome. The LRG Sundance party was great! I really think it was the best party at Sundance.I haven't been to a party this good for a while.

So this is Henry, no one is really sure how old he is, but they speculate that he is around 4 years old. He currently resides in Boulder Colorado. Henry loves to give kisses and jump around. At the time we met, we kept our conversation to minimum and on a more superficial plane, but while peering into his eyes I could suspect that he had much more going on than he was leading me to believe. One of these days I'll be able to reveal more about this enigma that is Henry. Oh, Timmery his roommate is in this photo as well, she's okay.

First Brand Clothing just recently launched their new website that features some black and white photos by yours truly. This was one of the more interesting shoots that I did last year. I am actually pretty interested to show off what we have instore for the next round. Charles and First Brand have some pretty big plans for this up and coming year. I'm really glad to have been able to work with the First Brand crew, I have still yet to see the look book that I did for them, but I really like this site, I kind of wish I had a new one now.

Well, it has hit all the blogs and ever every thing now, the LRG Gshock collab has been unveiled. I have been a fan of these for a while, so I was pretty excited to be able to shoot and handle this first sample for the shoot. They watch is AWESOME, I can't wait to nab one of these. If you happen to be wondering, yes we did have to reset the watch each time we took a shot of the watch for it to read 1947 on the display.

I believe this add should be out now, I'll have to go pick up the latest issue of Vapors or something like that. Triumvir has been running my ads pretty hard lately, I seriously love all those guys, even though, I think they smoke so much that I can't believe they remember my name sometimes.

I did this one A while back, but didn't get the full image to put up here till now, I shot the LRG Hayabusa for them and Suzuki, one of the crazier things that I have seen produced by Jonas and Robert, I really have no idea how they are going to top this one. See through rims, so nuts.

So I am pretty damn excited ( yes I did say damn, thats how exciting it is) about my latest photoshoot, with non other than Houston's Bun B. I can't really show to much now, everything should be hitting in April. But I am really really excited about all these pics. Hopefully I'll be doing alot more things with him in the future with him and Rap A Lot records. I got a sneak preview of his record that will be coming our later this year, and I will have to admit that I loved what I heard. I'm pretty bummed that its going to be a couple of months until I get my copy, Bun B if you are reading this, you better send me an advanced copy.

So this is my latest installment in my Series of Franco Shade ads with artist Arlo Eisenburg that should be hitting the magazines soon. This time we shot Dj's Dan Sena and GMO, who are the resident dj's every Wedsday over at the Detroit bar in Costa Mesa with their weekly party Busy Werk. Congrats to GMO for being recently added to The Skullcandy DJ crew. I don't think I have ever seen him not rocking his Skullcandy SK pro head phones, this ad included.
