Got second place on (International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers) representing Viera Photographics where I feel more than lucky to be an associate for that uber-talented duo. I had a ton of fun with the guys in the photo. I remember the bar where this was taken was quite dark so I bounced two strobes off the ceiling to light it evenly.



I was hired to photograph for a new company called BarTab, which created a new Facebook application allowing users to send real $1 drinks to friends. Since the company launched May 15th, they had they brilliant idea of promoting themselves to the public by throwing easily the biggest group party and float during the Bay to Breakers. My job was to capture this party. Of the 300+ of us that started together, probably 30 of us ended up with the float at the end. 1 lens, 1 hour of sleep the night before, and a lot more than 1 drink for the day. The theme was “Baywatch to Breakers” and of course, yours truly had on his Sunday best:) The rest of the pics can be seen here.


My buddy Ricardo wanted some head shots for an audition yesterday, so I decided to try something new. I threw a white curtain over my dining room window, set my ringflash outside and shot through both, hoping for a really diffused light. I placed a reflector near him for a little fill. I think I will explore this setup for food photos in the future.
