Test Shoot: Darrell

Darrell Snedeger and I shot earlier this week at the football stadium at Cal Poly University in San Luis Obispo.  We were fortunate that some workers were doing maintenance to the bleachers in the stadium, so we were able to sneak in.  Unfortunately when it came time to leave the workers had locked the exit so we had to scale a fence to get out.  Nothing like minor breaking and entering for the cause of a great location for a shoot.  

Darrell was very sweet and game for anything.  I put him to work during our shoot and he kindly accommodated.  He is moving to LA in a few weeks, so I'm glad we got a chance to work together before he heads down south to pursue a career in modeling and acting.

Good luck in LA Darrell!  Thanks for helping me over the fence! 

Test Shoot: Shelby

I finally got a moment to photograph my lovely friend Shelby Garland.  I was honored to be the first photographer to do a shoot with her.  I knew she would be a natural and I'm sure she has a bright future ahead of her if she chooses to pursue modeling.  We went down to the beach in Ventura, California and shot at the pier, Surfer's Point, and Marina Park.  The cloudy sky made for one large soft-box which is great for portraiture.  Shelby looks beautiful and I'm sure we will work together again soon!

Avila Beach Test Shoot, Part II

More images!  

I need to pick up the film this week (I shot with my Hasselblad and a Holga during the shoot), and then I will post some selections from the batch whenever I get it scanned.  

Thanks again to the team! I couldn't have done this without you!

Avila Beach Test Shoot, Part 1

I've been editing all week, and although I'm not quite finished, I thought I'd get some images up for you all to see.  The models and crew were fantasic.  I cannot thank everyone enough!  I am very pleased with what we created, and would hire you all again in the future.
