Got a question? Just ask.

Throughout my career as a photographer I've been asked technical (and non technical) photography, postproduction and equipment questions. I've decided to use use my blog as a resource to answer some of your questions. This is a beta test to see if using a blog to answer questions will work.

So if you've got a question click on the comment link and leave your question. I will check back and reply.


Jason's Glass Tint

Last week I did a photo shoot for Jason's Glass tint. Jason and I have been friends for a long time so he asked me to help him shoot an ad for his glass tinting business. This is the shot we decided to run for the ad.

I was so impressed by Jason's quality work I had him tint my car. All I have to say is I'm so stoked on the job he did for me. I can't believe how fast and precise he was. If your looking to get your car tinted, go to Jason. You wont be disappointed.

Thanks Jason!

Space Man

Here is a photo I did for Analog a while back. This was such a fun shoot. The space suit was super expensive to rent because its the same suite they use for Hollywood films. We were so stoked when the suit showed up because it looked so good.

We did the photo shoot at a laundromat downtown Huntington Beach, CA. We scouted the location first and we decided it was perfect. The laundromat was still open to the public so people were there doing their laundry. We figured people would be curious or trip out because there is a space man in the laundromat.

When we walked in wearing a space suite, nobody even looked up or asked a question. It was like spacemen do laundry there all the time.

Nathan Fletcher Shoot

Here are some photos from my shoot with Nathan Fletcher. These shots are used in the Analog catalog and future ads. Nathan was great to work with. We shot this in the studio with one strobe bounced of a card as a fill light. My goal was to have no directional light.

The look we were going for was Nathan in a waiting room board in board shorts.

The last photo is Nathan surfing Pipe. After I saw this photo it reminded me of how good he really is. He broke his femur surfing Pipe last winter. He's on the mend.

Gless Ranch

I was just going through some old photos and stumbled on this shoot I did for Gless Ranch. If you like fruit, then this is the place to go. They grow the tastiest oranges ever. Here is a screen grab of their sight. I shot all the photos on film so it was a little less forgiving than digital. This shoot was done before digital cameras were readily available. I do miss shooting with film. Those were the good old days. Actually the good old days are now. I love digital too.

Here is the link to their sight, and while your there, order some fruit. (They give me kick back for every order) JK.
