Exposing Salinas

I'm pretty stoked to be a part of this photogrpahy exhibit and to have designed the flyer..

Will (at Somos Media) and I talked about doing a "Salinas" photo exhibit over a year ago, then we kinda put it on the back burner. A few months ago my buddy Mark asked Will if we've ever moved forward on the "Salinas" exhibit... We hadn't but Mark asking was enough to get the ball rolling..

I think we did a good job of gathering some photographers who will shed some light on the culture (not just agriculture) in Salinas.

Today I was saving files from my cell phone that will get erased after I update it...

So I thought I'd share some photos I've taken with the good ol HD2..

This is why I'm fat!

Body Art

Not everything I shoot is automotive related...

Every once in a while I get called on to shoot people... I'm not that good at it yet but I do enjoy it. Especially when I get to work with creative people.

I've worked with Danyelle Castro (model/hairstylist/make-up artist) a few times before and we always have a good time shooting. She seems to always have good ideas.The bottle of alcohol she brings with her might also help.

Not so long ago Danyelle asked if I would be interested in shooting her first time body painting a model. I was interested and glad I did it. We had a great time. Danyelle asked her friend Victoria to help out (she did a great job) and had Josselyn be her canvas.. Josselyn was a great sport and did a wonderful job posing..
