Today's shoot was pretty exciting. I finally get to have NFL football heroes Reggie Bush and LenDale White in front of my camera. Anthony LenDale White is the running back for the Tennessee Titans. Reggie Bush plays for the New Orleans Saints. Both of them are long time friends, and shared tailback position when they played for USC (University of Southern California). They were both aptly titled "Thunder" and "Lightning". Unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict, Reggie was pulled from the photoshoot and we were forced to reschedule, forcing LenDale White to face me alone.

Soulja Boy

Did a publicity photoshoot with Soulja Boy at the 2007 DUB Custom Auto Show. It all went down at the HUGE LA Convention Center. We shot with a Custom 2007 Chrysler 300C. It felt so weird shooting in front all a huge crowd of people. Soulja Boy was born DeAndre Cortez Way and hails from Chicago, Illinois. Soulja Boy recently performed with Kanye West during the MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas. Watch out for him!

Check out his new Music Video, "Crank That".

Now watch Travis Barker (Blink 184 / Plus 44) go nuts on the drum remix of "Crank That".

Kelvim Escobar, Anaheim Angels

The star for today is Kelvim Escobar, starting pitcher for the Anaheim Angels. The shoot went down in the hills of Santa Ana. The weather was simply perfect. The cars on site were his Bentley Continental Flying Spur, Range Rover and the most beautiful car I've EVER shot - The McLaren Mercedes SLR. Here is the official site.

This car was a work of art and deserved to be in a museum. Sitting inside the car, the seats hug you tight. There are buttons and switches all over the inside, and you feel like a fighter pilot. It goes from 0-100km/h in 3.3 secs. Any faster and you'd go back to the future. This car is every boys wet-dream. Kelvim was an awesome guy to shoot and the shots turned out amazing. A big thank you goes out to Raul of 405 Automotive. Here are some preview pics.

Daddy Yankee - Puerto Rico | Part 1

Got a cool opportunity to work with Daddy Yankee again. This time the agency called and mentioned that Daddy Yankee requested specially for me to shoot the new campaign. This was twice as awesome as I had to fly down to Puerto Rico to shoot. Oh! The hard life I lead.

The entire trip was simply just awesome. I flew down with my 2 assistants, Stephen and Luis and we all had a blast. I met many really cool people and it was cool hanging out with Daddy Yankee for 2 days just shooting and just kickin' it. I stayed in PR for a week and managed to see much of the city. I made cool new friends from the agency, Miguel Vallejo and Alexandra Cortz. Miguel drove us all around and showed us much of the city. Totally cool! Met many cool models, stylists, DJ's and just generally cool people. Check out my visual diary!

I finally gave in.... my new iPhone!

I've been battling the itch to pick up the new Apple iPhone. When I got back from Puerto Rico, I got hooked up with an customized unlocked version of the iPhone. This means I can still use it with T-mobile. I guess this means goodbye to my trusty ol' Blackberry for now.

I've become one of the masses now. Oh, the shame!

URB Magazine | Perez Hilton

Got the call from the editor of URB Magazine to shoot Perez Hilton at a huge URB Magazine Release Party at Club VICE in Hollywood. It turned out to be such a crazy night. Hung out with celebrities, models, playboy bunnies and pornstars. Oh, the insanity of Hollywood!
