I've been working with my friends over at Subtext Gallery to put together a great One Night Only photo auction and charity show this Saturday night, December 5th. The Auction will benefit The Monarch School. This is a not to be missed night of photography with just about every great San Diego photographer participating!!! Check out the details here. I hope to see you all there!

CA Roadtrip Teaser

Just got back from a week on the road in CA. So many images to go through and edit...in addition to all the Portraits from the Bioneers Conference, which I'll have to scan...So here's the teaser image with much, much, more to come.

Cowboy Star

I just did a pro bono shoot for the local Chapter of the APA for our upcoming 7th Annual Portfolio Review. The concept from the guys over at Savacool Secviar called for a butcher shop and one of their clients is Cowboy Star, the hot new place downtown. And they just happen to have a butcher shop! Worked out great. Just wanted to say a big thanks to Jon at Cowboy Star for letting us us the place and Victor for standing in for us. And thanks to Kari Pheffer for assisting on the shoot.
Here's a few vignettes from the incredible interior of the Restaurant.

Late Summer Harvest

We planted a pomegranate tree in our back yard a couple of years ago. We've always gotten a couple of fruit off the tree. This year it went nuts! It looked like it was going to fall over it had so many. So after much procrastination, I finally picked the over ripe, splitting fruit last night and got the seeds out for juicing. Looks like we'll have fresh pomegranate juice for the foreseeable future. Tasty!

Dragons FC

It's that time of year again - Soccer Season!
All the sweat and hard work in the heat of August is about to pay off!
Tomorrow marks the beginning of the 2009 campaign for the vaunted Dragons FC.
If you haven't heard about them already, you will....you will!

Frank - On the Trail

Frank got into his bike a lot this summer. Last summer it was the skateboard. This summer, the bike. We went on a few rides together. Not nearly enough. But the weather's still nice and the days are still longish. So I see some more bike rides on my horizon.

Heidi's Wedding

Heidi has been assisting me for about 3 years now. She's better today than the first time we worked together, which cannot be said for most Photo Assistants.
She's also a fantastic photographer in her own right. And I've taken a lot of joy in watching her build her Wedding and Portrait business over these 3 short years.
Check out her outstanding work:
Well, she got married a couple of weeks ago to a wonderful guy, Albert, at what has to have been one of the funnest and most picturesque weddings I've ever been to. Hands down, 2 of the best toasts, from the Bride's brother and the Groom's brother, I have ever heard at a wedding. 2 of the best!! At the same wedding!! From different families! I kid you not!!!
I shot a couple of wedding's early in my career and gave them up right away. I guess I'm just not wired to deal with shooting a wedding. But I do enjoy a good wedding and I like to bring a camera, just in case...
