But this one, I liked. It was sweet, funny, and heartwarming. Ugh, I sound like woman.  The movie is called Passport to Love, it’s a foreign film which made me like it a little bit more. In fact, I liked it so much I uncomfortably sat during the entire movie even though I had a strong urge to pee before I even walked in. I must’ve crossed my legs in ways that I never knew I could. But it was so worth it.

Apparently the movie did really well in Vietnam, and is making its debut in America. Props to my friend Michelle Ngo, who helped put the movie together. Come to think of it, I’m not actually sure what she did, but if I were to guess it would have probably been assistant producer.  Her name flashed in the beginning of the film (when the credits sometimes roll at the beginning of movies) but the whole movie was it Vietnamese so I couldn’t really understand.

So I shot the premier of the movie which was not all that interesting to be frank.  There were a bunch of actor’s and actresses I wasn’t familiar with at all, and I’ve never seen any of them before so I couldn’t even say “oh you were wonderful in the last movie I saw you in.”  It was just a lot of pretty people walking back and forth in front of me while I just can sat in the shadows, kind of reminiscent of the I went to dances back when I was in middle school. But after seeing the movie, I felt like I knew all the actor’s and actresses like I’ve known them for my whole life.  Still, I didn’t really talk to any of them, because I don’t think many of them speak English very well.

Before I knew it I was taking photos of people with a camera that didn’t belong to me. And I had it in my hands for a really long time, no one asked for it back. Then finally one of the pretty actresses came up to me to take her camera back, she probably thought I was trying to steal it.  The only thing I manage to blurt out of my mouth was “Oh, I didn’t know whose camera this was,” before she took it out of my hands and walked hastily away from me.  Well, at least now I could say I talked to one of them icon smile I generally don't like chick flicks...

October 13, 2009 Be the Difference.

This took me what seemed like forever and a day to design, but it’s done! I’m excited to see the events hosted by my friend Jon Chang, because they’re always good icon smile Be the Difference. I will be shooting the event as well, which means it’s going to be uber awesome (for me). I’ll be seeing a few familiar faces from the line up such as Lawrence and Tony from Kaba, and Clara Chung. They’re all really good.

The event is for a good cause, and it’s free.  It’s a FREE concert, with good talent, those don’t come by very often. So I encourage everyone to go to it! I’ll see you there?

Recently, I have had the opportunity to shoot for Papaya Clothing ( , a nationally and internationally known brand that sells affordable yet chic clothing. Think Forever 21.

The images below are the ones I’ve shot for them that are already on their website, and the ones that they’ve edited so that I don’t have to edit them myself! Yay! There are only a few that I shot that are there website, but they’re still in the process of putting more up (I hope) And I’ll continue updating when those go up. If you want to see them on their website it’s the stuff under New Arrival.

The models and clothing are pretty easy to shoot, it can be very tedious sometimes. But it helps that there’s a a very talented wardrobe stylist and make up artist all working together.

I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty tired right now, but it’s also a very exciting opportunity so the feeling I feel is probably similar to drinking a Redbull-vodka. It’s a tiring/excited feeling, and it’s weird, and I don’t like it. That’s it for me tonight. Good night world!

October 13, 2009 Meet Frank (SAF)

So I have this bad habit of editing and posting up photos of stuff that I shot last, first.  And editing and posting up photos that I shot first, last. Make sense? If it doesn’t well, oh well.  So Frank’s part of the beginning of a project of mine, which he probably doesn’t know about because I might have failed to mention it to him. But I don’t think he cares.  My project is to shoot a friend a week, photographically of course which is to always keep me in the practice of shooting regularly. It’s been a lot of fun.

This is Frank, a really good friend of mine and a fellow thespian. Well I can’t say we’re that good of friends since the last time we saw each other was probably five years ago. But reuniting and hanging out now was just as good as it was five years ago. We talked about his acting career, traveling, and an old drool-on-the-pillow joke that I have no recollection of.

So these three photos I picked might not be the ones he likes, because he says he doesn’t like photos of him not smiling. I don’t care, it’s my project. I like these.
