Happy Holidays everyone! Its been a remarkable year for me, and I can't express how much I appreciate the support from everyone just comeing to my site as well as all of my clients for keeping the lights on here at the studio. I just recently got one of these cards in the mail from my friends over at L-R-G with one of my photos I shot of Rob G over in Yosemite earlier this year. It made me happy to see this, I almost forgot I even did this shoot earlier this year, time really flew by. Anyway, speaking of
L-R-G I just saw this ad that I shot
feature modern day crooner Mayer Hawthorne in Complex Magazine. It was pretty cool I was chilling in a
7-11 waiting for some friends to buy their beers, and just stumbled upon this ad in the magazine. It makes me wonder about all the photos I have shot out there that people run that I don't know about.

I recently was able to collide with the Serial Wax Killer himself Mix Master Mike to shoot some photos of a pretty exciting collaborative project that has been in the works for some time now. I haven't been this excited for a project for a while now and I am so glad to have someone like MMM to work with. if anything he's been able to push me further than anticipated for this project which is always a great feeling! More to come on this one soon!

Despite the fact that I am terrible at it skateboarding and I are two things that are never too far away from one and other, and today was one of those days that I am glad it isn't. I was pretty fortunate enough to be able to work today with Mr. Theotis Beasley. Theo is really one of the nicest skaters I have ever met, and we were able to jam out some pretty good stuff today even though we had a really short window of time to work with. We've got a couple of things coming up and probably in a months time some of that stuff should be hitting the news stands.

Here are some of my recent photos for the Triumvir Psycho Brigade project. Brandon in one interesting guy to work with, I'm glad we both respect each other, otherwise we'd probably kill each other he actually wrote some pretty funny stuff in reguards this shoot, here it is , and for sure check out the site, the 530 media lab guys did a really great job. "WEEK03 of the Shadaloo Psycho Brigade features a small storyboard we’ve put together with the help of my photographer friend Quang Le. I don’t have to imagine at all how hard it can be working with me on something
creative, but Quang can fluster my creative emotions at times… its a bit frustrating at times but a good photographer will do this to translate your imagination into imagery. Behind every concept or collection I create there’s always a deeper story line to either the character or the piece of clothing. The Psycho Brigade project is still in its early concept stage, I see nothing set in stone yet about it… I don’t want it to be. Let’s just say the Shadaloo Psycho Brigade unit, the character, the story, is still going through beta testing… its “Phase I.”"

I recently hooked up with the crew from Hypercrush, to shoot this pic of Holly Valentine that appeared in the most recent issue of Nylon Magazine. To be honest with you all I wasn't too familiar with Hypercrush and their music, in initially and I have to thank my buddy Shaun Neff, of Neff Headware for educating me. I have to say that the shoot went amazingly, and that I think there is definitely going to be future projects between myself and the crew. Super nice people, fun to work with, and on top of that, they are pretty big movie buffs, and rather knowledgeable, all things that make it alot more fun for me to work with. Here's a little video that the Skullcandy crew put together for them, a behind the scenes video should be coming up soon from this shoot.

Here is Del The Funky Homosapien and I preping for our next gig over a none other than Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles over in Long Beach. It was kinda crazy, because I wanted to meet him up in LA, but he drove all the way down because he wanted to eat at this particular one. I'm not complaning at all, I love Roscoe's I just thought it was really funny considering that. There are two spots up in LA!

Kelsey Brookes in a genius, there is really no doubt in that, his show was pretty amazing! The only thing that can really eclipse his genius is the sheer brilliance of Lion Cut the band that played at his opening. You have gotta check them out, pretty amazing.

Here is my first teaser photo from my Cleobella shoot I did earlier this year.

Greetings from Kenya! I've been posting up at the Mara Safari Club for the last couple of days and I must say it has been a blast! Kenya is really a photographers dream for sure. I never imagined how great it is out here. The wildlife here is pretty amazing. So among my many tasks as a photographer out here in the brush, I was also commissioned by non-other than Todd of Toddland to test a pair of his infamous "greatest pants in the universe" . You see, before a product gets out in the market one must go through rigorous tests to prove that it is safe for the environment and now we can safely say that The Greatest Pants in the Universe are rhino friendly. We were a bit concerned because a customer had reported to us that he had worn the pants while meeting up with some creature known as a "Spearmint Rhino" and his encounter did not seem to go that well. So we took it upon our selves to see what the problem was. I am unfortunately Todd and I are no zoologist so there was no real quick answer for this one, so I took it upon myself to see this Spearmint Rhino for myself. Searching every Zoo in the vicinity I turned up with nothing. So off to Kenya I went to discover that they did not have rhinos of spearmint either, so I took this as a sign to throw in the towel on this one, because the rhinos I did encounter didn't just seem the like the "greatest pants in the universe", they loved them!

I pretty much was just booked for a gig in South Africa, just booked as in I was confirmed today and I'll be on a plane in a week.

With any travel like this you'll need to make sure to pack all the right gear (camera, batteries, and plenty of clean under wear and socks)make sure your passport and visa is in order, and you of course need to get your shots, and in this case, I was off to get my yellow fever vaccine. I'll
admit shots and things like that don't really bother me. Another thing was, that the doctor that administered it was not only confronting to me, but was kind of a babe as well, so
that totally made things a bit easier for me as well. What made the whole process a little crazy was that I was slammed in a bunch of meetings on this day, but it was the ONLY day I could go for the shots, since I was leaving in exactly a week for the job and that I was actually scheduled to be on a flight to Miami to work with my favorite Nappy Boy recording artist for a couple of days, doing some big things! I was fortunate enough to have the assistance of a pretty awesome production crew on this one, that was able to find me a doctor in Los Angeles willing to stay open a little longer and take me in as an immediate walk in, because I had meetings to be off to. Then on top of that I had to reschedule everything to be a little closer to me just so that I could make everything on time, because I had so much going on. I was a pretty fortunate guy that day, everything seemed to fall into place.

Being that this gig was quite and unexpected surprise, I decided to celebrate a little and pick up a something for myself from L.A.'s very own piece of hipster heaven on earth, Opening Ceremony. Even though I sound like I'm mocking it, stop by it believe it's a pretty accurate description of the place and I honestly love alot of the stuff there. I've actually been eyeing this pair of Timberland boots for and while and OC recently did a collab with Timberland and this particular model, so I figured why not just nab them for the trip, a totally justifiable expense if you ask me.

So earlier this morning I had to hop on a plane to make it out to pretty much my home away from home, Park City, Utah. Most photographers are pretty much LA/NY, or if you are of the smuttier breed, they Miami for sure (which I'll actually be heading off to in a few days for some work). But no, not me, I'm LA/PC ... kind of a strange combo, but I like it. Utah is a strange strange place is sort of an Eerie Indiana sort of way, and It'll probably be the birth place of the Apocalypse, so I'll probably have a front row seat!

Anyway, this lovely Impala, was one of the reasons why I flew out for the shoot, the other is a surprise, and should be ready in a moth or so. I have to thank Chris alot for being awesome guy and driving up a crazy mountain in this car and loaning it to me for the day!

Recently LA/NY/NV/Gublerland resident MGG, or Matthew Gray Gubler, or The Gube, or what I prefer to call him Matthew put up this photo that I shot recently called "something wicked wobbles this way". How this photo came to be is quite a tale, one that I won't bore you with now. Its from this photo that he, and the other higher powers that be have granted me the title that I now don of "celebrated photographer" being bequeathed such an honor and a surprise, one thing I must say is that the nectar is so so sweet on this side.

Here's a pic of me at work while doing a couple of gigs with long time cohorts The Gym Class Heroes, I have some pretty big surprises that I am working on with Travie, more on that really soon.

So the second most horrid of all holidays is almost upon us. The first going to of course the most wicked... Valentines day, no other holiday I know of makes most people feel like crap, most being of the single variety. But doomsday isn't upon us for another 4 months. So I am of course talking about All Hallows Eve that is coming our way. I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to be doing for this holiday, but I'm sure it'll be rather interesting. I have alot of prospects out there, but I'm not really the kind of person that likes to limit ones self.

I've participated in a slew of pre All Hallows Eve events in preparation for all of the dark festivities to come and things just keep getting better and better. I just wish October was a longer month, there are way too many things I wanna do.

Its official... I'm addicted, I just recently got an Iphone so that I would be able to make my business more efficient with all the social media marketing nonsense, which worked really great for a while, until of course I found out about all of the other lovely apps out there... Especially the games.

Anyone that really knows me knows how geeky I am especially when it comes to role playing games. Unfortunately for me, I discovered Dungeon Hunter, I think I am in love. this game is awesome and yes I am addicted I serious can't stop playing it and I have already beat it once... I need to get a life
