I just have to laugh about it now. I guess I’ll post a few things.
Click HERE to see pictures from a show last August which Rotten Funeral Headlined. Here’s an image from that…and remember to click these images to see a larger version.
Those are quite late, and I do have more from last year I still need to upload. I have some recent ones available to view from this past Friday. Click HERE to see all the pictures from Arioch and the Malefactor’s birthday show. There were a few surprises there…
I have a whole lot of pics I still need to upload, but I keep backing myself up even more.
I did a great shoot with Carma & Ciara involving different sets. Here’s a few from that…
I took some black & whites of them…Carma and I finally did our Mommie Dearest shoot we’ve planned for so long. And I did my first alt shoot with Ciara! There’s much more in due time.
I’ll post more stuff soon!
I have been needing to make a new flyer for a very long time and also change my rates, but I’d never made myself some time to update my flyer. So I whipped up something really fast to put on my Facebook page. It’s simple, and has the three models I’ve created with the most…they are amazing. (Mischa, Carma, Ciara) I always anxiously await working with them again.
The information I have on my Facebook is as follows…
$50 for up to TWO hours.
Includes a disk of all images and 10 edits.
Please be on time for our scheduled shoot and cancellations must be at least 24 hours in advance or I won’t be too eager to reschedule another shoot.PLEASE message me if you have questions.
Serious inquiries only.
*I will consider trade work with those who share creative compatibility or are willing to collaborate with me on my own projects.
As for the part about my own projects, I have been really wanting to update my portfolio to reflect the inspiration and art I’ve had bottled up in my mind for a while. To be honest, I don’t have any idea who would allow themselves to be almost complete putty in my hands, but I’m interested in knowing who that might be.
And then there’s that lovely part where I need to collect all the items needed for such shoots…
I haven’t been shooting as much as I’d like to these days, but I do have some things I need to get in order before I can concentrate on that. I was having a conversation with a friend, Digital Pulse Photography, and he convinced me to try shooting RAW. I now have a program that can open those files, so I figured I might dabble in it. I told Mischa about the idea and we threw a shoot together. Here’s one of the images!
I have some more HERE and plan to upload more soon! And how did I like shooting RAW? Well…the camera seemed a bit slower. And I still have yet to learn how all the CS6 features work. That will probably take forever. I need to experiment more…
I went to a show in Oakland Friday night. The venue is called The Other World…nice place! Check out the pics I took of The Witching Hour, Rotten Funeral, Fiends at Feast, and Lluvia:

We did four sets this day…I have more to share when I have time. I also have some pics to share from a recent shoot I did with Mischa!
I am still horribly backed up and need to catch up on a lot of things…but I do have a fire started under my ass because I want to move forward with things…
I just thought I’d add some latest additions on here instead of waiting another month or two.
For starters, I did a quick shoot with Chronaexus yesterday! We took some pictures outside, but we also came up on the option to take a few pics inside a small room with a lamp in it.
I added their logo to it! Chronaexus has written some new material since A Tempest of Reticence, which was released last year. Bret Tardiff of Minenwerfer has joined them on bass. If you live in or around Sac, there’s a show coming up that you shouldn’t miss!

Also, here are some pics from my shoot with Carma and Ciara that I finally got done working on…and I was lagging considering this was from May!!!
There are much more of these and will all be uploaded to my Facebook photography page. The concept is something Carma approached me with…Stepford Wives! Chicks that smile in your face and hate you behind your back! There were some pretty funny moments during this shoot!
When I get some free time, I will be creating a flyer that reflects the new change in my rates for modeling shoots, and also another flyer for the special project I am working on. As always, I will reserve TF shoots for my regulars, those involved in particular creations of mine, or models who I feel very compatible with on a creative level.
I know I always say I am going to post more and I have plans and ideas coming up, but I haven’t done a damn thing lately. I am ashamed to even admit how backed up I am on edits and getting pics from shows uploaded. It’s pretty ridiculous. My personal live has been very busy these days. I have just moved and haven’t really put a dent in my unpacking. I still have the other place to clean up before I am finished there. Photography has been on hold until I can commit to getting things done on time, or very close to it. My computer is finally set up, but mine doesn’t have internet on it yet.
When I get caught up, I would like to come through with some ideas I have had in mind for shooting. When the time is right, I will be able to grow more and dabble in different things. I also want to jump back into the interview things I was doing. I am tired of having mediocre gear…or lack of gear. I want to invest in lights, lenses, and even a new camera. Kind of hard when you don’t have extra hundreds of dollars laying around. I am looking forward to working with new models and even some of my regulars. Speaking of that, two of my closest models and friends will be living in the same city…and this means more shoots and more fun times! Mischa will soon be joining Carma and I here in Sacramento! I am delighted at all the opportunities she will have to work with some of my photographer friends! Carma, as well…and I know she is very busy with her family and year old daughter…but she has been oozing with great ideas just waiting to come to life! I’m looking forward to the fun times we will have since we will be living in the same area. There has even been talk about the three of us collaborating to create a shoot special, which other models can take advantage of. Both girls have great make-up, hair, and wardrobe skills, as well as assistance in posing. We can do pin-up and alternative looks. This, of course, will be in the works as soon as myself, and Mischa, are both settled in with our moving. This might take a while, but plans are brewing!
This is from the first shoot I did with both of them together! Too much fun…
I remember when we first did this shoot and uploaded these, there were some green monsters out there who reported the images on Facebook! Too bad for those envious turds! This set did ooze with sauciness!
Anyways…I guess this is all for now. Consider this a non-official hiatus until I get my priorities in order and get caught up.
