We selected Seal Beach for Kassi’s new line of beachwear. Because, well, where else should beachwear be photographed?
We photographed Kassi’s beachwear and her headshots in the amazing Seal Beach, in southern california.

Ares Armor is operated by Combat Veterans, some who just came back from Afghanistan as some of these photos were being taken. Although lighthearted and goofy at times, Dimitri and his guys at Ares Armor are dead serious about the equipment they provide to our troops.

These guys are nothing short of amazing. Offering a lifetime warranty on their products, and if purchased face to face, will take the time to go ahead and train you on how to use the item.
Shoot with them is always a blast, the jokes are hilarious and come at a never ending rate.

Erika is a model/makeup artist/tattooist and now photographer. We shot near an abandoned shack in Long Beach. The unkempt treeline helped make for some very dramatic lighting.

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 Francis’ daily drivin’ project. A not-so-ordinary CIVIC SI. Designed to be aggressive, yet blend in- I believe he did a great job with his car. This vehicle is sponsored by Skunk2.

I LOOOVEE cars. Big ones, little ones, old ones, new ones, perfect ones, junky ones, imports, domestics, euros, so on, and so forth.
Francis’ CIVIC SI is one of few that tug at my eye muscles every time I look at it. I’m not a huge fan of over-the-top modifications on Japanese cars, but I’m in love with this thing.
From the BBS rims, to the not-so-loud but still mean exhaust, I love it. And the fully adjustable coilovers from Skunk2 gives this civic its aggressive stance.
This Civic is Francis’ baby, with over two years worth of wrench time, it looks like every turn of the socket paid off.
It’s under constant evolution, since I’ve taken its photos- it’s already undergone a wheel, brake, and suspension transplant.
Kudos on a tastefully modified car, Francis. Kudos.
Thank you very much for checking out my blog today!

A frantic drive down to Long Beach to see the most memorable sunrise ever.

On a whim, I drove down to Long Beach. It had taken a while to get the camera bag packed up, so I left the house at about 5:35am with only a bit of time before the sun went up.
The sky had gone from black to a dark orange. I wasn’t going to let the sun beat me there.
I parked at the nearest possible location for a good photo.
The sun rose. The moment it peeked over the horizon would be forever burned in my memory.
After an exhilarating morning drive, I felt a stillness. I clutched my bag and pulled out my camera…
After witnessing this, I made my over to one of my favorite shooting locations, The pier. Where I was able to observe one surfer waiting for the swell to come in. He was the only person at the beach other than me. He noticed me on the pier through a nod we both knew that it was only a matter of time before more people would come.
The waves crashed against the pier, loud and roaring like a lion. I got on the sand and walked on. I kept the camera in hand for whatever came my way.
During my walk, I met these surfers, they were still in high school, I suppose the beach seemed like a better idea than the classroom for today. It reminds me of the antics I used to do when I was their age. One of the times I did ditch, was to this location.
Before I knew it. It was 1100am and the lack of sleep had finally caught up to me. Time to go home.
