More photos will be up soon. A lot has been going on. Second term is coming to a close... I've got like 3 weeks left. Micael and I fly out to Austin the day school gets out. I really can't wait. The summer is going to bring a lot of traveling and a lot of adventure. I am ready.

Moved out of my apartment yesterday. Unfortunately it didn't turn out to be everything I expected. I'd like to get a house in Silverlake or Echo Park... We'll see I guess.

Mopeds have become a slight obsession. Basically all I wanna do is ride. haha. Went on a short ride with the Latebirds on Sunday morning. Fun stuff.

I will be back in CA on April 29th and won't leave again until June 19th (Thailand and Burma here I come =]. So, if anyone would like to book a shoot please do so between those dates. I am in dire need of money so please, book a shoot.
My friends are pretty badass.
Sometimes closure is all we need. Eric was home for a few days. He deploys in like a week. Unreal. I will miss you terribly. You are my best friend. I love you.

My oldest sister turned 27. She's a big kid now too. The party was totally ridiculous.

The first of a series of updates...

My youngest niece Kenzie turned 2. She's a big kid now.

self portraits

For Fine Art Photo we had to shoot 3 self portraits. This was an insanely hard assignment for me. Here is my final product, not too good but oh well.

For those of you interested in my trip to Burma...

We've got dates and agendas... Thailand and Burma I will see you in June. Here are some sites that will give you an idea of what we are going to be doing over there... These kids are awesome and I am incredibly lucky to be able to take part in this adventure:

a different kind of light...

So we had to shoot an assignment for my core lighting class using something to light the subject of my image that you normally wouldn't use to light a photograph. I chose to use a laptop monitor... here is the final product.

This past week has been extremely up and down… my bank account and mental state have taken a brutal beating. It’s 11:00am on Thursday though, that means, one more assignment to print, one more to redo, and 3 more to shoot. That is an extremely light load given that I can do all 3 of my shoots digitally. Thank gooooooodness for digital. Outside of school life is going pretty well. I’ve been hanging out with the girls and Micael a lot, mopeding as much as I can, and that’s basically it. I’ve had a chance to go back home twice in the past two weeks. I really miss Nuevo and Menifee, as weird as that is to say, I really do. Living in a loud, dirty city is fun and exciting but I think my heart will always be in open fields. Here are some shots from my trip with the girls back home and one of Julia in the stage at school.

today was amazing...

Exploring abandoned houses might be my favorite thing ever. Today we hit the jackpot. I've got some amazing friends. No one else can scream beatles songs like we do. Life is wonderful.
