Today's shoot really couldn't have been better, quick, easy, great results, and on top of doing a good shoot, I managed to get myself a fresh pair of new sneakers as well. Today in studio, we had Rockstar energy drink, Nike 6.0, Skullcandy, and Oakley, ski athlete Sammy Carlson. This gig was set up by my old pal Jimbo Morgan who has been a huge advocate and it was about time that I could return the favor for him and shoot one of his athletes. There isn't too many people that are better on the slopes than Sammy, and he's got his new movie "Can't Stop" coming out soon to prove it. I'll post up the finished picks up here as soon as I can.

Since the revival of "The Crucible" I decided to bring out some early pics that I shot with the first version of this contraption. This was a shoot that my buddy James Kyson Lee had set up for me with his friend, Erin Cahill. I won't go into detail about what Erin does and who she is and all that, thats what google and wikipedia is for, internet creeping is something I know we all participate in.
Erin was a really good sport to come down all the way to the OC for this. She really made my day, as well as the shoot! There is really too much of this hurry up and wait stuff going on with shoots. Being that I have some pretty fond memories of this one, I can't believe that I never did a post on it.... sheesh, I really need to get my act together. One of these days I'll get all caught up with all of this little gems that i've shot along the way. Erin if you are reading this, sorry I am so lame, we need to kick it sometime. One of these days my trigger finger is gonna be broke, and then I'll be able to take it easy for a while.

This is one of my most favorite pieces of gear we call it "The Crucible". This little baby was out of commission for a minute, but shes back now, and you'll be able to see images in some magazines next month, well that is if you live in Japan. I'll be able to talk about this more later, after I get something back from the printer. Anyway, this guy was inspired by the incredible music director Hype Williams. Its pretty much a modified ring light to give a bit of a different effect than what one may expect from a ring light. Anyway I missed this guy, and I'm glad he's back in the arsenal, new and improved. Special thanks to Igor and Byronski_Beat for making it happen.

Here is a video of my recent photoshoot with Shady recording artist Cashis for Cakedout. I had no idea that they were putting this together, I just happened to be on there site last night and saw it. One of these days I'll start being more aware of stuff like this.

My buddies Devin and Mitch from Fremont and Endovenera just recently opened up a shop in Costa Mesa within the Lab. I would rant and rave about how much I like the shop and how you should check it out, but instead here is a list of a few of the brands they carry, fremont,chronicles of never, endovenera, corpus,erik hart,orthodox,eskell,kontorsion,morphine generation, and conference of birds. Also just to let you everything is pretty much 50 to 80 percent off. For your sake, you should come, because you'll for sure get some sweet stuff, for my sake I hope you don't because I'll for sure scoop up the gear you missed for myself. Make sure to come on Saturday, they are having a party with free booze and all that, so they can get you drunk so my make a ton of shopping decisions that you'll regret once you get your credit card statment.

Villains and Vagabonds is a brand that I have been working with for a while now and its good to see that they finally have a website up and running featuring photos shot by yours truly of course!. I've been shooting pics for them for the last few seasons, and its incredible to see how they have grown in the last year with no web presence at all.
Well, as of last weekend this has all changed. They now have a new full fledged website, for me this is actually kind of nice, considering I shoot all these photos for them and never get to see them anywhere aside from their showroom. They also have a webstore and a bunch of other cool little features. I personally would have loved to see more of the photos up, but this is really a good start for them, and I think that this is really going to be good. It was also super cool of them for putting up a little blog hit about me and the work that I have done. It good to hear it when people appreciate the work that I have put into their brands. Its also pretty cool to see all the spots that they are carried at. I mean they have some of the best accounts you can get for the kind of gear they make. Revolve, Metro Park, and Fred Segal, so good.
P.s. I also like how in the second photo, Nick from Villains put that nice little close up hit of the Hellz Bellz x Miss Wax collab ring that was given to us on loan from Miss Kylee Wax herself!
