Check it out. My year. In Photos.

December 31st, 2011

A couple weeks ago, I was on the iPad2 on some Reader App looking through Time Magazine, LIFE Magazine and some other publication’s”Year in Photos”. And it gave me an idea, I’ve had a long year, and it’s really been crazy. I haven’t had two projects that were the same, it’s all be such a great and wonderful experience. If we didn’t have calendars, I wouldn’t know where to start.

¬†Under each photo there’ll be a short story about why I picked it as my favorite photo.

los angeles corporate portrait photographerThe Dentist- She was amazing to work with, she initially wanted just a regular portrait session, but after talking for a few minutes, I was able to convince her to let me sit in and photographer her at work.

orange county wedding photography

The Last Dance, from Alex and Espy’s Wedding. I noticed this gentleman pushing his wife into the wedding venue earlier that day. She spent most of the day in her wheelchair, but when they played the last song, she whispered something to her husband and he helped her up. Alex and Espy told me that she had been battling cancer for quite some time and that their wedding was the first time she got out in a very long time.

southern california product photographyAres Armor. These guys brought me out to Oceanside to photograph their Sling. A simple design that can save a warfighter’s life on the battlefield.

june

los angeles fashion photographer

Sheree. Me and her go back all the way through high school. After I switched in during the middle of my Junior year, I didn’t know a soul. Sheree was quick to make friends with me and keep me company.

july

military family photographerPinky+Stinky 365. Communication.  A memory straight from my head. After a long day of training we were sometimes rewarded with the opportunity to write back to our loved ones. Most of the writing that occured during lights out took place under a red light to prevent others from waking up. This photo involved zero photoshop work, it was shot in a single frame.

august

apple valley weddingsMTV from Josh and Theresa’s wedding. MTV gave me a call asking if I had any younger clients who were interested in having their wedding day. I had never worked with such a large entity during a wedding with over 6 videographers and a crane operator, and it was definitely experience. This gentleman is a sound technician partaking in some red velvet cake, note the cheeky wedding attire.

september

rifle photosBOOM! The guys at Ares Armor brought me out to a private range in Southern California. I was there to take some video footage of the group for an instructional video for their sling. I’ve been around guns before, but never as a photographer, standing next to what people are shooting at.(No photographers were harmed during that day.)

october

los angeles car photographer4 car pile up. We had just gotten on the freeway, then traffic abruptly stopped. I was able to stop within inches of hitting the car in front of me, but the driver four cars behind me had no such luck. He ended up causing a chain reaction that would delay our photo session for that night.

november

los angeles wedding photosthe boot. I didn’t think it was possible, but this image marked my first year focusing on weddings primarily. I still photograph other things, but 80% of my work is wedding related.

Happy New Year!

Erika is a make up artist. A very good one at that.

One day on a shoot, her model didn’t show and that particular photographer asked her to do modeling instead. That single action opened up a new world for our friend Erika.

Erika’s currently in cosmetology school but also works in a tattoo shop in orange county. As if’ this girl isn’t busy enough, she’s decided to get a camera!

To get her to loosen up, I used my trusty model/photographer distraction tool.- My classic Polaroid Land Camera.

We shot near an abandoned shack in Long Beach. The textured background and the unkempt trees surrounding the structure made for some dramatic lighting.

This is Anjelo Baligad, a dancing force to be reckoned with. Not more than ten years old, he’s known around the world as one of the best young Bboys around.

Featured on Ellen Degeneres’ TV show twice already, this lil man deserves your attention.

His performance can be found on this link : Young Bboy on Ellen.

His portraits were shot at LAX, a place that doesn’t really allow photography much less breakdancing.

None of the staffers nor the TSA minded his show or my photography.

Joshua Santos- Tha Natural

December 19th, 2010

Joshua Santos AkA “The Natural” is an independent musician I went to High School with. We put a session together a while back.

Me and Josh go way back into High School. I remembered him being into music, but definitely not into the traditional stuff.

It’s pretty cool to see how far he took it.

Anywho, without further ado- here’s our portrait session I did with Josh a while back.
