35th Anniversary Event

When a company has been in business for 35 years, with a loyal following of customers and associates, you know they're doing something right. It was a great pleasure to photograph the 35th Anniversary Event for the David H. Fell & Company last Saturday aboard the Queen Mary of Long Beach. This precious metals refiner and manufacturer is family owned and operated, and they threw a great party for their employees and clients at one of the truly unique landmarks of Southern California.

Student Session

Last week was a very busy week for me. I completed several photo shoots for a client calendar, then on Friday had an afternoon session with a high school senior. Gina came out from New Mexico for her photo shoot. We went to a few cool locations and had a lot of fun, which included her dad doing a great job as a photographer's assistant. On the job training. There are so many great images of Gina, but I'm just going to post this one because she hasn't seen the proofs yet. I had previously photographed her sister Kate a couple of years ago for her senior portraits. Gina was determined to get enough cool shots to outnumber Kate's framed photographs at home. I think we succeeded.

Remembering 9/11/2001

I just watched a television special called "102 Minutes That Changed America" on the History Channel. It was the most spellbinding documentary I've seen about the attacks on the World Trade Center. It brought back a rush of emotions that I remember feeling on this date seven years ago, when my sons were just toddlers. I hope they never have to experience anything like that in their lifetime.

Long Service Celebrations

I hit the ground running after returning from vacation and it seems like I haven't had time to breathe. So much work! Of course, I'm grateful for every job that comes my way. So I just wanted to highlight some recent work that I shot for Huntington Hospital. They had an incredible event for their long service employees who were celebrating up to 40 years of employment, and then another reception for those who reached the 5 year plateau.
