Tales From The Tryst

October 28, 2010 1 comment

I did a photoshoot for XS and TRYST nightclubs for the halloween promo/flyer. It was pretty last minute request and I wasn’t completely informed of how this would turn out, so i just found out what was going on in each scene and lit and shot them appropriately. It was last minute but the photos worked out, and I had a blast, if I were to do it again, I would have done a few things differently, but overall had a great time working with everyone! The flyers were not done by me, once the photos are shot its usually up to the art director/graphic designer for the final product, which the photographer has little to zero input 90% of the time 100% of the time.

This is my edit, of a similar photo used in the Tryst flyer.

Above photo is just cleaned up of small imperfections, but the tones were pretty much straight out of camera. This was the first time i got to use my new Paul C. Buff 86″ PLM v2 Reflector.

This was definitely one of my favorite shots….its just a cool shot even though we had some “wing failure”.

The theme from both XS and TRYST was awesome. Thanks to Danny Mahoney for bringing me in on this shoot. Had a blast!! check out XS Blog here!

and we took a bunch on white as well.

These can be found all around Town Square.

Tonight is Tales from The Tryst, perfect time for the blog post (I thought). Have a safe Halloween everyone!!!

Memorial Day Weekend

May 31, 2010 1 comment

Wow, I’m actually relieved this weekend has finally come to a halt, there were way too many things going on! Grand Opening of my new favorite pool on the Vegas Strip, Encore Beach Club/Surrender Night Club, Steve Aoki, Kaskade, Erick Morillo and Deadmau5 and more all in one weekend! Thankfully I only had a few things to cover, but that plus the traffic and the shennanigans inside the clubs/casinos, it was a handful!!

Above is Ne-Yo’s live performance at Surrender Nightclub. Partying at Surrender was Paris Hilton and her entourage. Ne-Yo invited her on-stage during his song “Miss Independent”. You can kinda see her bottom left in that picture, but distortion got the best of her.

I missed the shot due to getting hit in the face with a giant video cam (knocking the glasses half way off my face). Yep……one of THOSE nights. HAH!
Anyways….If you follow my flickr account there are two photos uploaded including this one, the reasoning made me LOL!

This weekend closed for me with Erick Morillo/Morillo Madness at Tao Nightclub. Every venue I went to was packed to capacity. Time to enjoy the rest of my day off and start the routine all over again!

Oh yeah, I got a great deal on a Nikon D90+grip, so I went for that plus some much needed accessories vs the D300s, as it would have cost me substantially more for that body alone. The D90 + Nikkor 17-35 is my full-time “nightlife/pool” camera. All the images above were taken with it, the noise levels remind me of my old Canon 1d2 at ISO 1600, but without the canon blotchy-ness noise. The AF is certainly a lot worse, and the viewfinder is TINY. BUT, it works well, and I’m stoked i didn’t have to hold a gripped d700+24-70+sb800 through this mess.

I hope you guys enjoyed the read, and I’m glad everyone I know got home safely this weekend! Until next time!
