Malory is very fun, witty, smart and gorgeous. We kept making each other laugh during the shoot, so she was surprised that we had so many shots of her not cracking up. She's also a blinker, and i'm a blink-catcher, so it was funny looking through all the closed-eye shots. Ah well, in the end, we made some gorgeous images and had tons of fun.

Ashlie - Portraits of a Tall Girl

Ashlie is about 6 feet tall in heels. That is all. 

Okay, that's not all, but i always giggle when i'm photographing someone significantly taller than i am (and that's a lot of people. Most, actually). Ashlie's bringing her little guy in for portraits soon. I guarantee i'm taller than he is, even if not by much.

Event - Bent Self Video Release Party feat. Skater, Trey Wood - event photography in Scottsdale, AZ

A couple weekends ago, i shot the video release party for Bent Self's video for Liquid Concrete. It's awesome. Check it out!

The party was phenomenal. Great people, amazing skaters, fun times!

... a little jumping from the roof:

Linds handed out shark teeth. It's not a party without shark teeth party favors!

Bent Self and Trey Wood in the Studio

Before releasing Bent Self's latest video, Liquid Concrete, Dustyn (Mr. Self, himself) and pro skater, Trey Wood came into the studio for some promo shots. Trey's little brother was along with their mom and so, of course, we had to get him up on a board ;)  Check back soon for photos from the video release party. And be sure to check out the video (it's AMAZING) on Bent Self's page:

Steve is an amazing photographer with 30+ years' experience. It's always flattering and somewhat terrifying when phenomenal photographers ask me to photograph them. Steve says i have a gift, a special way of capturing people's souls. I don't know if this is true or not, but i sure love what i do.

I'm often asked how i do this or how i do that. "How do you shoot?" Well, the easiest way to see how i shoot is to let me shoot you. (Contact me for a list of private instruction options: click to email me). So, here's Sean, so he could see how i shoot. He's very easy to photograph :)

Frantic Arcade

I love discovering local bands whose music i love. While photographing a Bent Self show at Club Red a few months ago, i heard this band, Frantic Arcade. They had the perfect blend of musical voodoo to catch my attention. I talked to the singer after their set and gave him props. We connected on Facebook and...long story short: they now have cool pics. 

You should check them out! Click here for their Facebook fanpage!

The Lovely Cory

I met Cory just over a year ago at an Authority Zero show. She's gorgeous and really cool and we had tons of fun shooting. Afterward, we found out we had a lot of interesting things in common and ended up chatting for a long while after the session. It's nice making friends while doing what i love.
