This is turning out to be a decent month as far as shooting goes! Over the weekend I did three shoots. Friday I did headshots, Saturday I shot some portfolio shots for a hairstylist friends portfolio, and on sunday I did a location shoot for my own portfolio. Tomorrow I am photographing a burlesque show, its been a little while, and I am looking forward to it! I am still looking for a model to do a studio shoot with over the weekend. No music this weekend, but in a couple weeks I have six potential shows in a week and a half period. Its funny how that seems to happen.

This is Jay, my first victim off of ModelMayhem. I have been warned to expect models I find off of there to not show up, be horrible, and all sorts of not so good stuff, so I was pleasantly surprized when jay not only showed up on time, but he was eager to get started! Sweeeeet. Not such a terrible start.


Nothing complicated, just straight meet and great headshots.

Signals & Foot Village @ the Smell

I wasn't sure if we were going to arrive on time, it was 9:30 and we were still driving on the 5 headed towards downtown Los Angeles. The Smell rarely starts a show before 9, so if we got there at 10, we would have missed the 1st one and a half bands, which I didn't mind so much. I forgot about something though, when its after 10, good luck finding street parking in downtown. Ooops. We drove down a few streets before giving up and forking over the eight dollars for parking. Theres a new yuppy club that opened up on 2nd and main ... I guess it gave the parking lots permission to raise the parking rates three bucks. Not cool. Its almost 10:30, and I am sure we've missed the first couple of bands, as we are walking in, I greet Deseret at the door, pay my five dollars twice, once for me, and once for JoV and in we go ... I recognize the sounds from the back of the building being one of the bands I came here to see.

I couldn't be sure if Foot Village had just started, or were towards the end ...

As luck would have it, they were somewhere about the middle of the set.

Aaron Kahn met up with me to shoot some new headshots the other day, here are a few of what we got.
