sometimes I really hate RED

I got to see 2 great bands on Thursday night (6/19) at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach. The Widows and Octagrape, both from San Diego. Weekday rock shows are always difficult. After a day’s work you need to rally to go out that night. Personally, I depend on Red Bull. So, I got home from…

it was on the news, so it must be true

The other day, while surfing around on facebook, I saw a news story about the 25th anniversary of the Casbah. Of course I clicked it … And what did I see at the 1:34 mark of the story? One of my photographs! I had no idea! I was super stoked to see it. I think…

websites …

2 things I hope you’ll check out. 1. I was very surprised and excited to be asked to participate in Swimmingly’s 2013 year end round up of music and food. I can’t tell you how many times I wrote and re-wrote my answers … I tried to edit and shorten each time and I still…

top ten of 2013

I was reading a post by fellow photographer Michael Ares and he did a year end, “top ten” list of his favorite shots of 2013. After reading his post, I thought it was a great idea. A great way to look through your work throughout the year and see how your are improving or if…

sour grapes? perhaps.

Maybe I’m just a little bitter. I submitted images for an open call for photographers. The theme was music photography so I thought it would be a good opportunity to make my first attempt at submitting images for an open call … Why did I do this? I do not know. Maybe it’s because I…

out of shear laziness

i bring my camera with me everyday, everywhere I go. Usually I bring the Olympus E-P3 because its small and convenient and still takes great pictures. Lately, even though I have my E-P3, I’ve been leaving it in the bag and just bringing my iPhone. When I say “bringing” I mostly mean on dog walks…
