Pinhole Photography

Well, it may not be one of the best known "holidays", but today is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. A pinhole camera is one that focuses light without the use of a lens. Instead, a very small hole (pinhole) is made in a piece of material to use in place of a lens. The hole will allow light through to the film or digital sensor, creating an image. The website at encourages people to make pinhole images today and upload them to the site to share with the world.
Happy Pinhole Photography Day!

70th Birthday Party

It was a pleasure to photograph my client's 70th birthday party last Saturday in Pasadena. Surprise guest "Hillary" was forced to make a quick exit after being told by the host that she was the one and only Democrat in attendance! Everyone had a great time at this special celebration.

Lensbabies Ad

I'm pretty excited and honored that one of my images has been chosen by Lensbabies for an online ad at Steve's DigiCams. Lensbabies makes unique camera lenses that produce interesting perspectives reminiscent of Holga and Diana cameras. The ad is one of several revolving through the main page at Steve's DigiCams (a photographer's resource for news & information), so you may have to refresh the page a few times before the ad appears.

Student Portrait Session

I had the opportunity to photograph a cool high school senior recently so I chose a couple of interesting nearby locations for our photo shoot. Tyler will be graduating soon and heading off to college. He hasn't made a final decision on his school yet, but he's narrowed it down and may follow in his father's footsteps if he goes to Oral Roberts University. He's a talented musician and singer, and recently enjoyed a trip to Florida to sing with a group there. Best wishes, Tyler!

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

Last night, I saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band in concert at the Honda Center in Anaheim. I caught one of their shows in L.A. on the first leg of this tour last October, and I've now seen them on every concert tour since 1978. Quite simply, I think they are the world's best band. Yes, they're older and have slowed down from their prime playing days when a typical show lasted 4 hours and the power & passion of the music was overwhelming. But there's still something amazing about this band and the songs they play.
