Lindsay & Rusty at The Getty

This couple is the epitome of FUN! Lindsay and Rusty met at Disneyland and are admitted "hams" when confronted with a camera. Very playful! We had a blast during our photo session at the Getty the other day, and it's with great anticipation that I look forward to documenting their wedding day this coming September.

Father's Day

I love being a Dad and I'm fortunate to have two great boys of my own, and two very cool stepchildren. This is one of my favorite images of my sons, taken several years ago when they were about two and three years old. They were walking together ahead of me on a path in Central Park, Pasadena. If only that innocence could be bottled up and saved. . .
Happy Father's Day!

Holga Film Camera

Yes. . . film! The Holga is a cheap plastic camera that uses 120 size (medium format) film. What makes it unique is that the poor plastic lens and low-quality construction of the camera itself produce images with distorted views, blurring and vignetting. While those issues may not be desireable in most situations, they can help create very interesting images. In other words, it's a fun camera! The simplicity of the controls is a nice break from the sophistication and complexity of professional digitial gear.
