New Years Eve!!

December 31, 2010 Leave a comment

NYE is already here!! It felt like last week was Thanksgiving!! I can’t wait for 2011 already, I’ve got some plans!! The lower NYE flyer was another promo shoot that I did a few months back. A few flyers throughout Manufactured Superstars’ residency should be my photos as well, not that one however. The Manufactured Superstars photoshoot that I did was pretty epic I must say. Good things to come in 2011!!

Both TRYST and XS flyers were photos of mine as well, the TRYST flyer was later replaced with an ESTELLE flyer since she’ll be performing there tomorrow night (NYE!!!). Thanks again to Danny Mahoney over at XS for helping out with the shoot, some of the shots were his, some were mine, the lighting was done by me, NBD.

Heres a side profile shot that I took some time to edit. The original was pretty different, I’m glad I invested in that WACOM tablet! After all this madness is over I think a vacation is long overdue. I need to make an appointment with my sports therapist ASAP, and get my gyukaku/boiling crab fix!!

Not my favorite photo from the set, but definitely fitting for NYE and the giant blue Andy Warhol edition Dom P!!
On another note, I’m very thankful for my family and friends. I have the greatest family, and the best nephew! Everyone who knows me knows that I keep everything pretty close knit! I’ve grown close to new friends this year and closer to older ones, finding people you can trust and rely on in Las Vegas is pretty far and few between nowadays. Thank you everyone for a great year! 2010 went by a little fast, I’m still in shock its already over! See you guys’ next year, and please don’t drink and drive! Have a wonderful and safe New Year!! I’ll be at XS on the 1st shooting Manufactured Superstars, and Afrojack on Monday!!

Help-Portrait 2010

December 26, 2010 Leave a comment


Dec 4th was the Las Vegas second annual Help-Portrait event at the Shannon West Homeless Youth Center. The group shot above was remote triggered via Al Powers, @PowersImagery who pretty much ran the event this year. Here is a link to last years post for those that don’t remember. Click!

I wanted to give out a big Thank You to all the hair and make-up artists that helped out again this year, Justin Wray for supplying the step-and-repeat backdrop, TRYST nightclub for letting us use their red carpet, and everyone that came out to support the event!

It was nice going out there again, weather was great, and even saw some familiar faces from the previous year!

I like to check out what other communities are doing, some places go to senior citizen homes, hospitals, special education centers, and some people seem to do it independently as well! Its quite unreal how big this became.

If anyone wants more info or wants to know how to help out, this is a WORLD-WIDE event! This is happening once a year in your community! HELP PORTRAIT WEBSITE

XS and Tryst Toy Drive

December 9, 2010 Leave a comment

I had the opportunity to shoot this amazing event yesterday. It was XS and Tryst nightclubs’ 3rd annual toy drive with 98.5 KLUC, and donated a huge $106,297 in toys to HELP of Southern Nevada.

It was great seeing everyone so enthused and in the giving spirit! People were filling up their carts so fast!!

Everyone there was having a great time! Choosing things they felt kids would appreciate.

This was pretty much how they left Walmart’s Toy section when they were done with it!
They filled up 2 semi’s full of toys from the local Walmart, clearing out most toys and bikes in the whole store and even had a firetruck+police escorts lead the way to the drop off site.

The unloading turned into a human-conveyor belt style system

The bike collection was MASSIVE!! I don’t think one kid will be bike-less this holiday season!

The amount of toys was overwhelming!

The receipt was 100ft long! Which was basically both semi’s back to back in length!! I definitely had fun covering this event, and had a blast overall. Nothing better than being surrounded by good friends and good company supporting a great cause!!
