November 23, 2009 Meet Andre Clark (SAF)

This is Andre Clark, a good friend of mine from college and former past Resident Advisor at UC Riverside. Holla! Then he went on to USC to do many great things in the gaming department. And now he’s working at a game developing company and starting his own new gaming business called Peanut Gallery Games . Him and his friends just started the company, and I am very excited for him and excited about the future of his growing company.

So let me explain the photos I took of Andre.  He recently bought the very popular game Modern Warfare 2, and he told me he spent about another hefty bill to get the night vision goggles. And they’re pretty legit. I tried them on a couple of times and turned off the lights and it works!  So I wanted to do a conceptual type of shoot with him with his night vision googles and this what we came up with!

Introducing !!! I have a lot of other work that I was really proud of but I didn’t want to put it on my wedding/portrait site, so I made another site so as not to clutter the sites. And I think it worked out wonderfully.

Also for my existing website , I am now using the music of the very wonderful and the very talented Clara C Music. She was this year’s JCPenny Breakout performer, and has had appearances at ICA, Be the Difference, and other great shows. She recently told me that she has booked a showing at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. She’s blowing up faster than a bag of popcorn. I am very proud of her and am very excited to see her grow (musically.)

I will also be photographing her next week as part of my ‘shoot a friend project’ and I have a couple of other shoot a friend projects this week that I will hopefully be posting up this weekend or beginning of next week. They will be bomb! I promise.
