So I rented some lighting equipment this weekend to practice and figure out what all the fuss about lighting was.......
I had 2 lights, 2 umbrellas and one camera and my son of course was down to be a ham. Just so you know the umbrellas set up completely opposite to what I was thinking the light flashes IN to the umbrella...they are not so the lights don't get wet.
It truly took me a good 3 solid days to get my bearings.
Now it is on to GOBO's and stuff. "No that is not an Italian dish, I know... I thought the same thing."

I met Kaile last week when we did this shoot at her home in LA.
You would think that she is your typical 15 year old girl but she is most definitely not. She is a young girl following her dreams.
Keep your ears tuned to one of the most amazing voices you have heard in a long time..... Kaile Goh is gong to be a Rock Star.

I thought these were totally unreal, straight out of Dr. Seuss right!!
"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..."

I was honored to be able to document the shoot that Malibu local Photographer John Hildebrand orchestrated this week in Los Angeles with Actor Jamie Kennedy and Model Avalon Barrie.
The Agents for Artists team were gathered at Jamie's super rad house for the shoot. His pad alone was so surreal it had all kinds of rad skulls, bold colors, fish, art, globes, and books artistically tossed about.
I can only wonder what Cece(Rock & Revolution) and Anjuli(Jamie's Creative Executive) are going to do next???????

Met up with some fellow drogues to check out the Freedom Artists Surf Contest in Malibu this Saturday. I rented that gnarly 100-400mm lens to try out. Here are a few of my favorites.
I totally invite you to check out my Phelo Photog Phriend Joe Nash's Freedom Artists post. He used the same lens and it is amazing what he captured!

So I totally rented this stocker lens from Sammy's Camera this weekend. I had essentially 3 days with it and I had to take full advantage.
So Today - Sunday - I took it with me to Santa Ynez where I grew up knowing that I would find Cows along the way. Perfect for a huge 100-400mm stocker lens because I am not sure how close I would actually want to get to one of these things.
And frankly they were not too sure how close they wanted to get to me either. So I played paparazzi with some Happy California Cows and one other beast you will get to see tomorrow.

I personally don't like wearing flowers unless it's FUNKY.
