Well its been WAY too long but I'm back. Lot's of travel, lots of weddings, lot's of shoots, a cross country move... all this has added up to blogging being put on the back burner. Well that's over. This will be the first post of many. So keep coming back... and tell your friends that the rumor that I disappeared isn't true. :)
This shoot is from last year and I ad always meant to blog it but for some reason or another I never did. This is my friend Edmund Prieto. He's one of the nicest and most talented guys I've ever met. He's good at literally everything he does. One of the things he does is skateboard. At one time in his life he was a sponsored, touring skater. He asked me to shoot him last year so he could finally have some good images of him doing what he loves.
I can't believe they're getting married in a few weeks! I'm so excited for them and can't wait for the wedding. I love you guys!
Here are just a few of my favorites.
Edmund is a man of many talents. He's a sponsored skater, a professional photographer, and a graphic designer among other things. He asked me if I'd shoot a lifestyle session of him and I jumped at the chance. I got the film back this afternoon and wanted to share some of it. I'll be posting some of the digital stuff later as well.
As always I prepared these using the ridiculously fast blogging actions, BlogStomp. It literally saves me hours every time I blog... and at less than $50, its a steal.
A few weeks ago a couple of friends came out to visit, Craig and Chip from Studio563 in Houston. One of the nights they were here we went out to Laguna Beach to shoot for fun. I totally forgot about these images and recently sent a bunch of film to get processed and got these back. I never get over how amazing film looks. The color and skin tones just blow my mind, and the depth of field you get shooting medium format is just incredible.
Craig and Chip also have a new product about to be release called BlogStomp. Its a super easy way to get your images branded and blog ready. It's saved me hours and hours. It's amazing. Go follow them on twitter and be the first to find out when it's released.
Here are my boys Craig and Chip!
A couple of weeks ago my friend Matt was in town and he asked if I'd take a few pictures of him for his website. I of course said yes. Well, Jeff and Jessica came along too and so I ended up shooting each of them for a bit.
This one didn't make it on the blog because I think it's a great image, its on the blog because I think it's really funny. We were in these amazing fields with really cool, tall grass and I thought it would be cool for Matt to sit down. Turns out it doesn't look too masculine. Hey, all the ideas can't be winners.
Now for Jessica
She definitely knows how to work it for the camera. :)
Then Jeff jumped in and decided he wanted a piece of the action too.
