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!
To culminate a great week of Blog Posts and in honor of Halloween (whatever that means) I present...
Shot this image for the 7th Annual APA/SD Portfolio & Website Review coming up on Saturday November 7th. It was great to team up again with super talented Mike and Steve at Savacool Secviar Brand Communications. Great work guys! The posters and E-Blasts look awesome!
For a list of the must see reviewers, more info, or to sign up for the review go to the APA/SD Website.
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!

Here's a few vignettes from the incredible interior of the Restaurant.

Looks like we'll have fresh pomegranate juice for the foreseeable future. Tasty!
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...
