Emy Reynolds Band in the Studio

I love my ERB girls, Piper Denney and Emy Reynolds.  They are currently in the studio in Ojai   working on their latest album, due out Spring 2015.  I got a chance to shoot them in the studio a couple of weeks ago and got an early preview of some new songs.  As always their work makes me swoon.  Here are some of my favorite shots of the girls.  They have a show at the Lobero in Santa Barbara on Nov. 15th.  If you're in the area it's definitely worth checking out!

Stephanie Barkley

I photographed production designer/artist/comedian/actress Stephanie Barkley in her home in Los Angeles in early June.  She is a lady that wears many hats, and it was a blast to photograph her for her various projects.  

If you follow her on Vine or You Tube, you know that she is very funny with dozens of characters in her back pocket to pull from.  Her puppets were my favorite!  Check Stephanie out on one of the many platforms she rocks...

Levi's Community Day 2012: San Francisco

On Thursday, May 3rd Levi's held their Community Day In-Action where Levi's employees throughout the world participated in various projects that helped benefit their communities. I had the opportunity to shoot at the Levi's headquarters in San Francisco where they were building bikes that were given to the local YMCA, sorting thousands of articles of clothing to be donated to Goodwill, and sewing canvas bike bags for kids, and many other altruistic endeavors.

Levi's CEO, Chip Bergh (pictured right) helps to build bikes for the YMCA's YBike program.

Later in the day, after the good deeds were completed, Levi's hosted a picnic lunch for the employees who volunteered to help out with the various projects. The rain rolled through, but it didn't dampen the mood of the crowd which was treated to the sounds of Bay Area band Buxter Hoot'n.
