I like to think about getting a good clean cut as renewing your confidence. And every two weeks I’m here at Main Event Barbers for a trim and a beer for breakfast. Because what I need is more confidence and beer, right?
I stopped by the day before thanksgiving and caught some of the action. Tag a friend if you see them! LINK HERE
We couldn’t have picked a better day to take photos! I’ve been wanting to shoot here for some time and love that it’s so close to home.
Rudy was a natural in front of the camera even with the occasional distraction of weirdos parousing around the bridge while we shot what quickly turned into my new favorite work.
Congrats to the Rudy and the Mendoza family. We’re all excited for Rudy walk across the stage and be a graduate of Christian Brothers Class of 2017.
It feels like a lifetime that we’ve been able to watch football. Why does this season seem so short? Blink an eye and your kid crossed the goal line, hope you didn’t miss it.
Well you won’t necessarily have to miss it. If you see a big guy with Ray-bans, a killer mustache and a camera, then make sure you stop by the galleries section of my website and treat yourself to a digital download or order a traditional print or canvas.
See you on the field!
Taking photos, I have the unique opportunity to be with people at exactly the moment where everything changes for them. It’s exciting to hear of all the opportunity knocking at their doors and they get to decide which one to walk through. Hats off to Alina for all her hard work! She’s heading to UC Santa Cruz in the fall. Here’s to many new adventures!
Go Banana Slugs!

When then weather changes and it starts getting humid around 12 pm, that means there’s lots of anxious and excited High School Seniors waiting for that last bell to ring in the beginning of June. Lots of big changes are on the horizon for them and though High School affords them the opportunity to open their minds, it really teaches them about how to network. The chapters after high school begin to define who these seniors will be. Initially I would’ve liked a Do-Over for my school days but i realize that its everything that came after that changed everything. Being in the position to take these Senior pictures is so interesting to me. Its really a beginning of a story for each one. I’m thankful for the opportunity to be invited into that for my cousin Danny. Hes got big plans and definitely a leg up on most people because hes starting off with a direction.I was too busy trying to simply Graduate let alone figure out what i was going to do next. (Speaking of which, Thank you Mrs Murphy I know I didn’t deserve to graduate. You definitely did me a solid.)
Congrats in advance to you cousin, and to all the HS seniors!
A couple weeks ago the Gurp City Affiliates Big Sammy, Eddie K along with Block Burners and Jake Uno made a pit stop at the infamous Stag Bar in Woodland CA. I was especially excited because BS was showing off a couple tracks from the Refrigerator Perry EP that we’ve been working on for the last couple years. This was the first time that ive head the tracks on a PA system. As expected between the bass rumbling and people dancing, there was probably the equivalent of a 6 pack of beer spilled on the dance floor, it happens.
The big man thoroughly did his job to the extent that he ended his set with a mic drop while he playing Brotha Lynch Hung’s “Refuse to Lose”.
And on that note….. (mic dropped)

We had a very productive week so I thought id share some stills from one of the sessions we had with Carina, a soon to be Woodland High School Graduate, GO WOLVES! As a WHS alumni myself, I was super excited for the opportunity to photograph one of the most pivotal moments in her life so far. Shes got big plans for the future and I’m glad i was there to capture the moment. Initially we started in the Historical area of Woodland but began migrating where ever we saw open spaces with lots of color. Fortunately, Downtown Woodland is filled with them so we only went a couple of blocks. After a while we decided to change things up and took a trip to a special place I’ve been scoping out. These were my favorites from the session. We had lots of really good lighting, and my subject was so easy to work with! Best of luck on your future endeavors Carina!
It was really awesome to see my hometown buzzing with activity. Thank you to Woodland Street Cruisers for organizing the Back to the Street car show. It reminded me of the Cruise Night that we used to have on Main Street. Cars, People, Parties….its just nice to see the community out like this. All we need now is for businesses to stay open later, for Main Street Shops to be open on Sundays, and of course we need someone to open a Chipotle in town. (Guaranteed to make $$$$)
Anywhoo, i was feeling kinda nostalgic so i was shooting for a vintage look and wanted to show as much detail as i could. Hope you like em. check the album HERE
