  • Event Photography: 1970s Disco Funk Party

    If I were able to pick a decade to live in, it would absolutely be the 1970s. That’s not just my mustache and afro talking. It’s also my love of 70s funk, soul, disco and of course classic rock from that era. And don’t forget the fashion. Part of being an event photographer means that […]
  • Beach Yoga Fashion Shoot

    Here’s part duex of my last blog post about my shoot with Tara by the good ol’ Cardiff Kook. Our weather in San Diego lends itself to these beach shoots without us having to worry much about the weather. We shot these photos in full sun in the early afternoon but I often wait until […]
  • Beach Lifestyle Fashion Shoot

    I live in Ocean Beach in glorious San Diego and don’t get me wrong, we have some great scenery here. But my favorite beaches for photoshoot locations are around Encinitas and La Jolla. It’s something about the sand and the people up there. Maybe one day I’ll pin-point what I love about it… One warm, […]
  • Event Photography: San Diego ASA Prop 215 Party

    The friendly folks at the San Diego chapter of Americans for Safe Access invited me to document their annual party to celebrate 19 years of patients’ legal access to medical marijuana since the passing of the California Compassionate Use Act, also known as Proposition 215. The party was at the Seedless Clothing compound in Ocean […]
  • Beach Yoga Lifestyle Photo Shoot

    I met up with Brooke one nice December afternoon at Swami’s in Encinitas. We started the photo shoot with some yoga poses in these awesome colorful pants she was wearing. Then we moved on to some portraits and bikini shots while the light was still good. And once the temperature dropped a little, she wore […]
  • Building a Green Screen Video Studio

    I consulted for a sports broadcasting company recently where I built a green screen video studio with acoustical treatments. Normally a fabric green screen is hung from a metal frame with tripod style legs. The room is fairly shallow and adequate floor space between the screen and the host is very important, so I built […]
  • Video Interviews: Formula E and Lord Paul Drayson

    Interested in electric cars? What about the global electric Formula One racing series, Formula E? Or the land speed record holder for an EV (204 mph), Lord Paul Drayson? Wireless EV charging via the Qualcomm Halo system? All this and more in the videos I shot on Friday with a British Lord and the CEO […]
  • Inspiration: Arcade Fire Gets Weird, Miley Gets Naked

    Here’s a pretty cool video from Arcade Fire. I’m not a big fan of their sound in general but I always like their dancey stuff like Reflektor and Sprawl II (another interesting interactive video by the same director, Vincent Morisset). The song was produced by LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy. David Bowie’s voice makes an appearance […]
  • Music Video: Oil & Canvas by A Mayfield Affair

    I shot, edited and directed this live music video for A Mayfield Affair, a San Diego based folk rock band. My concept was simple: showcase the band’s true, undoctored sound. No recording studio trickery, no distracting story-line, no acting. We did this video in one continuous take. View the music video on YouTube or watch […]
