rainy sunday

This weekend was spent mostly in the commercial studio trying to pound out some shots for my phase phour phinal portpholio. Here's what I've done thus far.

Glass: (meet Joey, my newest friend)

environmental still life:

I'm excited to finally get into the portrait studio and start shooting people.
I'm also excited that yesterday it was super sunny and nice outside. Today was rainy and dreary, but hey- it's not snow.

Personal Submissions...check.

Smiles abound! The second sunny day in a row in Greenfield, Mass!
It is almost spring break. I can't wait. But first, a few shots from the personal submissions for phase three.

1. a high key shoot with my favorite model, nicole.

2. a badass low key shoot of young Zack, who is really Italian.

3. And a wonderfully colorful (and color-coordinated) shoot with Desirae.

Everything is done and turned in, and now I simply wait to get on a plane and head west.
Look for some sweet Spokane shots after the break.

Another New Hampshire Weekend

Meet Shaunae.

Then we went to New Hampshire again. I didn't get any assignment shots done, but it was a good time nonetheless.


Also whilst in New Hampshire I met my new friend Diva, who is an absolute delight. Expect more photos of him.
This is how I roll.

Where did the sun go?

Studio times make shooting on cold days where nobody really wants to venture outside so much better.


It should be noted, that in Massachusetts, the sun comes out, gets everything nice and warm, melts all the snow, animals come out from hibernation, smiles come back to our faces, the world is good.
Then the next day we get ten inches of snow.


I can't wait to go back to Spokane in just over a week!

vamos a la playa

This weekend Nicole and I ventured to Salem, New Hampshire. Nothing like Salem, Oregon- and that is fact. For one thing, it's much nearer to the beach- which is exactly where we went.

It was cold at the beach. Which I suppose should be expected in February.
Eric joined us.

And along the way, we also found Des!

Who had brought Lando with her.

After we were too cold to go on, we went to Fast Eddie's Diner. Which I think is hilarious, because Fast Eddie's is a pretty trashy bar in Spokane. In any case, the food was delightful.

Plus we sat by a mirror-which you KNOW made us all happy. And naturally, we took pictures of ourselves in them.

Unfortunately, our trip was cut short because of a snowstorm. But not before we got the chance to straight up chill in sunny Salem New Hampshire.

This week I need to continue to work on my personal submissions for Phase 3. If anybody has any good ideas, shout me a holla.
