PREGAMES Poster

•November 15, 2010 • 1 Comment

Now that ENDGAMES has ended, the producers needed help with a shot for their new show titled the PREGAMES.  Peter, Galen, and I worked together to put the photo together and Peter worked on the text.  Special thanks to our models Galen, Regina, Mikey, and Hannah 😉

If you look carefully you can find my phone number and a monopoly piece hidden in the poster.  Can you tell what it is?

Another Sammy Wegent Photoshoot

•October 7, 2010 • 4 Comments

Of course since I’ve been dabbling in the comedy scene within SF, I’ve gotten a chance to take some photos of some very funny comedians in here.  One very funny, talented, and very well known person in the SF comedy scene is a guy I’ve met named Sammy Wegent.  He does stand up, improv, sketch, he hosts various shows around the city, and he was one of the instructors for my improv class.  Definitely go check him out if you get a chance.  I think right now you’ll most likely see him hosting an ongoing SFCC show called the UPPERCUT!

This was a photoshoot we did back in May using multiple locations around SF.  We ended up doing another shoot about a month or two later, but I’ll post those pics at another time.

Finally some breathing room

Sorry it’s been a while!  I’ve been really busy with trying out other things in life for a while, but don’t worry, I’ve still been taking photos!  I just haven’t gotten a chance to post any…

One of the activities that’s been keeping me really busy (besides my day job) is improv.  About 10 months ago I started taking a couple of intro improv classes because my friend Peter had been doing it for almost a year and he seemed to be having a lot of fun doing it.  He was really passionate about it so I thought I’d see what all the hype was about and help support his craft.  Needless to say it was an awesome experience that has helped open my eyes to the way I view people, relationships, and the way we interact with one another.  I could talk a lot about improv, but that would probably take up another blog.  Instead, here’s a photo I took that was used for the poster promos for Peter’s new show.  A lot of you who are seeing this page right now probably came here because of a link from this show blasts.

If you’re in the SF area and you are free one of these upcoming Thursday nights, I highly recommend checking out this bay area improv competition.  It’s kind of like American Idol, but the singing can be a hell of a lot funnier!  Oh, and the winning troupe of this competition will get the stage for 4 weeks for their own show, AND a photoshoot from yours truly.  Please feel free to share this event with your friends:

My troupe was in the competition, but we just got knocked out last week =(   hence, more time to dedicate back to photography =)

Yesterday on my way to the Bruno Mars/Brown Eyed Girl/T-pain concert I saw three kids skating behind the Bill Graham over a railing they found.

No place like home

I went back to Michigan last weekend to see my sister graduate and to hear President Obama give their commencement speech.  His speech was alright, but that didn’t matter to me cuz I got to take some pix (you can check out on my facebook).  While I was home, I got to do an impromptu photoshoot with my uncle, sisters, and cousins:

New toys!

Just picked up the 5d mkii last week along w/ a 16-35 lens.  I’ve been playing around with it here and there but haven’t gotten a chance to update this blog in a while.

Here are some photos from this past weekend.  Reg and I went to the NASA Ames Research Center to check out Yuri’s Night.  It was this world wide concert/ science event to commemorate Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space.  There was a huge science fair, musical performers, air shows, and some crazy art.  Some of the performances included N.E.R.D., Common, Black Keys, DJ Q-bert, and Les Claypool.

SCIENCE!!!
