At the Motel with Betty Nice

I've known local model/photographer Betty Nice for quite a while now.. Even worked a 9-5 with her for a few years, but not until a few months ago did we shoot. I told her to meet me at a local motel to see what we could capture...

(here are just a few of the photos we got)

I have a lot of fun shooting at night, you never know what you'll capture or who you'll run into.

Good times..

The show began early Sunday morning.. Toshi & Shinya made sure we were up and had breakfast early so we could get to the show and begin taking more pictures and push some merchandise!
The crowd was no joke!
I was blessed to be able capture the show from up above!
I'm thankful that I had Frank, Yudai & Mira to help translate at the booth..
I had a great time at the show talking to people (via Frank, Yudai & Mira) After the show Shinya packed us all in the van and we were off to grab dinner & celebrate our accomplishments!
Monday morning we woke up to early and watched as some Nagoya bikers rode away..
We stopped by the Moon Cafe to grab lunch (just like many show goers did)
