Nebby has become one of the greatest inspiration for my photography career. For this shoot, she was worried that her hair was going to be too wild. I told her nonsense and rock it. Turn out to be one of the most funnest shoot I have done with her.
I'm a little behind in sharing this but better late than never. So, Dia the Los Muertos is a holiday that is shared in the hispanic community. It's a day we remember our lost family and friends. To remember that even when all life comes to an end. We could find beauty in the most tragic of times. Taking the time to remember someone and share their stories. To my tio Jose and my abuelita Maria. To all my friends that have passed away. I still share your stories and my memories. I love you.
I can't get enough of this couple. They keep calling for a session and every time it just gets better. It all started with an engagement session. Now Im photographing them as a family of tree. I can't believe how much this family has grown.
Mac and Molly are an inseparable pair. They're roomies and definitely feed from each other energy. Trust, once you get them going. THEY WONT STOP! Still, they have always been the life of the party. Since they been living together for over 2 years. They thought it would be appropriate to take family portraits.
So, photography could some times be extremely boring. Especially when its the same style of photography over and over. Thats why I have my friends that I could use and abuse. Always surprised how welcoming and open minded they are with my idea. This set wasn't anything too extravagant. I just really wanted to do a Star Wars theme shoot.
Giving you guys a heads up. I am currently working on a underwater series. Although I have tons of material to show. I wont be submitting anything until I have my show.
So like many of you guys know. I am originally from California. It is my hometown and it's place I just can't stay way from. My hometown is La Puente, Ca and and it's a fairly small town. Well small for Southern California. It does have a horrible reputation. Lets just say it falls in the barrio of mix people. Still it is the motherland for my and many more amazing people.
It is home to some of the most talented people I know. Vanessa is one of them. Although we met in social media. Vee is one stunning gal with a lot of woman in here. With such a pleasant personality, you wouldn't of know that she is practicing boxing. So I try to stay on her good side when I visit. Still, I always make it my mission to visit her and do some shooting. Maybe next time I'll be able to photograph her in the gym.
This session was photographed with Kodak Ektar 100 and Ultrafine 400. Enjoy!
So, I'm a horrible blogger. I don't have the time or effort to just sit down and write. Sometimes I find it difficult to even get a sentence written down. It's not my forte when it comes to this. Still, I enjoy sharing my photographs and maybe some stories to go with. So today I'll be sharing photographs of an amazing gal. Mostly because it's an amazing feeling when another photographer ask you for a shoot.
Mac Coplin from Pink Rose Photography is something else. Such a diverse girl with multiples hobby's and interest. She's a killer Jiu-Jitsu champ. One of 3 host for a podcast called MissFit jiu-jitsu. Also, she is even starting her very own youtube page. Where she mostly rants about things. Still funny to watch though. Beside being drop dead gorgeous, she is an amazing photographer.
Now, I know some of you guys are wondering. Why is this photographer giving us hype for another photog. Well, to me it will not make a difference if you pick me or another photographer. All that matters is the appreciation and the results of the final product. The value and the experience we have is what matters the most. I have always told to all of my future clients. If my body of work doesn't fit your expectation. I have tons of other recommendations. Mac is one of those photographers I enjoy recommending. Anyways, enjoy the photographs!
I had the pleasure to do another set with Nebby. Such a rad girl with such a brilliant mind. Everything I talk to her, it's always about going to the library and study. Still has time to meet with me and have a relaxing session. I guess college life is a breeze for her.
This time around I took her for a hike in one of my favorite spot. I told her that after a long a day I will come here and sleep on my hammock. I actually the concept of this so much. I invited Nebby to model for me on this set. Enjoy.
Just finish an exciting shoot with this wonderful girl. Nebby was truly a pleasure in working with. Shared lots of laughs and jokes.
Sidnea has been a pleasant person to work with. Luckily when I have an itch to shoot she has been a phone call away. I can't wait to create more work with her in the future. Here are sample shots I did this previous Sunday. All photographs where taken by expired film. I used a Hasselblad 500CM with expired Fuji 160NPS expired 2008. I also used Canon EOS 3 using Kodak Portra 160 NC expired in 2005.
