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!!

So I realize I’ve been MIA for a bit, but I’ve been slammed at work doing 10-14 venues per week and had a nice short 3.5 day vacation visiting my dad and friends all over Socal. Thao and Jacob were awesome as usual, I went to the best sports therapist/chiropractor ever in long beach, and had my Gyukaku, The Boiling Crab and my Pink Berry fix. Simply glorious!

So I managed to squeeze some time in for a shoot with Brooke. I told her I’ve been wanting to take some photos on the strip for quite some time now, since I basically pass these spots every night on the way to or from work. We managed to go to two locations, and get some decent shots. Lighting was very basic, nikon sb800 speedlight in a silver umbrella on almost all the shots, I figured there would be a lot of foot-traffic so i figured the less I brought the better.

I did realize a few things during this shoot however. I miss having prime lenses, and that I really can’t rely on my SU-800 outdoors, and its deemed useless compared to my radiopoppers. (RF>IR) The SU-800 is a great tool, its just for what I do and how much I make its really just another overlapping tool, and inconsistent (outdoors) at that! If they made an RF version of the SU-800 it’d be gold!!

I wanted to add in this black and white, I originally intended the set to be black and white but decided to go with color because it was so vivid straight out of camera. I really need to start shooting more portraits, I’ve got a lot on my plate at the moment and need to figure a lot of stuff out still. Hopefully after a quick 3-4 day in California again for my birthday will help clear my mind. I know this was a short post, hopefully I’ll be able to follow up sooner than later! Thanks!

Happy Birthday to the GROUND!!!

So, I tried to tell myself to do weekly blog updates but failed already at that!! Sometimes my weeks are slammed with dj’s or celebrities, and sometimes their just cookie-cutter nightlife stuff, these last two have just been the cookie cutter jam. The beginning of last week started with bumping into Bullet for my Valentine at Wasted Space at the Hard Rock Hotel. Cool dudes, would have been rad to see them preform!


All the tuner guy’s that follow this blog should recognize her, Corissa Furr was at Maxim’s Casting Call at Tao Beach last week.


As for the nightlife stuff goes, its photos like these that make me LOL and make it worth it!! Sometimes its really hard doing it every day, but hopefully it’ll pay off in the near future. With that said, Memorial day weekend will be nuts guaranteed!! I kind of can’t wait for it to be over! I’m about to book a flight to Seattle first weekend in July, for a small vacation/FD get-away weekend with friends! It will be my first vacation all year! I’m super stoked!

side note: I just updated my on-location bag/contents! I can’t wait to put it in good use! the wind has been kinda crazy the last few days though! don’t forget your sand bags or happy birthday to the ground!!!

Weekly tearsheets!

so I started shooting nightlife recently because it was something I’ve always been curious of shooting, and what better opportunity than here in Las Vegas right?! Between that and the full time job, I’ve had barely any sleep/time to myself however, Halloween is crazy, SEMA starts Tuesday, ahhhh…. Halloween is going to be a crazy night I guarantee! Anyways, this is a quick post, showing I’m alive and not abandoning ship!

Heres a shot that would be way too edgy for the site I’m shooting for. Tonight was Vanilla Ice’s birthday @ Studio54, and…well…he performed “ice ice baby” and “go ninja go ninja go!” from TMNT!!!! holy flash back. he’s actually really nice in person too! had a quick chat after the show. pretty effin cool!!! I’m enjoying it so far!

now off to my full time job! I can’t wait for my “in between jobs” nap!!!
