Today marks the 5th day I’ve been shooting in a row all day everyday.  I am very very tired. No, I am exhausted, spent, done, drained, pooped.  Recently I have spent more time with my camera than anything or anyone else.  So much as to my right wrist is getting sore, and my calves are hurting. Like whoa.

I’m not set on the title of the post, but at the moment I cannot think of a better one. I really like this collection.

This is basically a documentation of the behind-the-scenes at an Aveda salon.  This goes out to Ruth! Thank you.

This was shot on Monday, I will go in to shoot again today, and there will more of these later.

April 30, 2009 NOVO fashion show

This past Saturday was interesting, it was the day of the NOVO fashion show.  Quite frankly, I don’t know what NOVO stands for but it was a charity fashion show hosted and run by the local church community.  People donate their clothes, and then designers create clothing lines using the donated clothes.  Pretty cool concept, but I think since it was run by church my expectations weren’t high.

But I was actually very impressed, the turnout was amazing. It was a Fire Marshall’s nightmare, many people didn’t have seats to sit in.  Needless to say there were a plethora of photographers there too.   That’s what I hate about shooting fashion shows, there’s always a bunch of photographers (or people who think they’re photographers) all bunched up in the front.  In a case such as that, the taller photographers always have the upper-hand, and height isn’t something I excel in.  That’s why my photos are all to the side, I stood on a chair and tried my best to get some decent photos.  The fashion show started out with a speaker who was a movie-producer-turned-bum-turned-Christian? Don’t quote me on that, but he was there to share his experiences and stories about homelessness. I thought that was a nice touch. Oh, and it was a pleasant surprise to see a few of my friends (Slingluff, Michelle, and Eve) in it, that was unexpected but very amusing!

Just like anything though, there are the little things that I think could be better.  Since I watch America’s next top model, that makes me an expert on runway walking icon smile NOVO fashion show So many of the models don’t know how to walk properly.  A runway model should never have their hands on their waists until the very end! What a ‘noob’ mistake. I wanted to yell out “You’re doing it all wrong!”

Thanks to my wonderful friend Michelle Ngo I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot for Skinnie Magazine ( http://skinniemagazine.com/) .  So in this current Issue I have a couple of photos in a couple of pages.   I am very grateful for this opportunity because to show work in a magazine is so much cooler than photos on a website or something of the like.  And you might notice that two of the people of the photos are none other than Jeremy and Jeramee, the dynamic duo (found in the post before this.)
