Yeah, I know I haven’t written in a while, I suck. On a good note, I have been keeping a little busier than normal with my photography. There’s so much more I want to do, but I need time and I have to buy some things needed for some of the shoots. Since I am such a slacker in writing here, you might as well search for my photography page on Facebook. I usually put updates there.
The last two shoots I did with Mischa were quite amazing! A while back, we did this shoot which was inspired by the awesome art of Miss Van!
We did another shoot recently that was very easy and fun to set up!
That was a really awesome shoot, simply done in my shower. Mischa really used that shower curtain to create some very strange effects that looked amazing! You may see more of this set HERE.
I also had an amazing shoot with Oodie and it was my first time working with her! I had admired her work for quite a while and was excited to shoot with her. I had been wanting to do a cocoon shoot and she was all about it! I got the stuff we needed and she found an amazing location. We captured some amazing images in less than an hour and I took less than three hundred images. I was fortunate the lighting was perfect.
That was a very fun shoot. Oodie was having fun playing around in the bodyhose, especially with the clear goo. I really wanted to do a really nice cocoon shoot and she really brought it to life.
I have more shoots planned but, again, trying to set finds aside to grab the stuff I need. I’m happy my style is taking shape. My Model Mayhem portfolio is made up of images that are an example of what I want to create and I hope the willing models find me. 🙂
I am hoping that inactivity I was experiencing was just a dry patch and that I am really being productive with my photography again. That would be good. I also have some shoots planned that I am stoked about,
I am up to my eyeballs in pics from shows and also recent shoots I’ve done. Well, maybe not up to my eyeballs. But I’m backed up. I guess if you want to see what’s new, just click HERE and look at my most recent sets on Flickr! 🙂 I have had a pro-account on Flickr for a few years now and I love it, but I am kind of on the fence about their new layout. Hmm…
I did a shoot with Syd in May and it was our first time shooting! She was very fun to work with. If you look at the set we did, you’ll see it was the nature shoot concept! I hadn’t done that in a while! Click here to see that! (Gosh, I love linking stuff.)
I recently reconnected with Luckie and it had been a few years since our last shoot. It was pretty fun! Check my Flickr if you want to see some from my set with Luckie!
I recently did a shoot with Ciara and made a little collage of it. 🙂 I am really pleased with how it came out! It’s a little different than that style I usually see her in, but I love it when models can pull off different looks! 🙂
One thing I can tell you about these last three shoots I did was it was annoyingly hot outside! That is and always will be my problem with summer…I hate it and don’t like to shoot in it. 😦 I try to avoid even planning shoots during triple digit weather. I am good on that! :[
As for live music, I have still been taking more pics. There’s a bunch of folders on my desk with pics I need to resize and edit. My camera seemed to be really on point when Sacrament Ov Impurity played here! I was really happy with the pics from this night: Sacrament Ov Impurity at On the Y
Here’s a pic of Jess!
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 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:

Okay yeah…I haven’t updated on a while…I thought I’d at least post a pic from the ones I have edited today! I’ve been very backed up on editing…I have a long way to get before I get caught up, and I am STILL taking more pics these days to pile on top!
If I can at least TRY to post a pic a day with some updates…that would be something!
Anyways…here is a pic I took of Loki of Fiends At Feast! I saw them back in April when they played a local show! Click HERE to see the rest of the pics I took at this show!
