Kids, Dogs and Koreans

I just got back from a week in LA shooting for Novartis. It was quite an experience shooting small children and dogs all in the same shot. Challenging yes, but a blast, most definitely! It's pretty funny though to realize that a dog can be more easily trained and more obedient than a five year old. HA! Again, I was super lucky and got connected with the best crew EVER. Makes me want to shoot in LA more.

By some strange coincidence my entire photo/digi crew were all Korean.. so that made for some fun running jokes for the week. Lynn Campbell headed up the production and made everything seamless, Jasmine Hamed came out from SF to help out with the styling, and Erik Hillard of Running With Pixels supplied me with an awesome digi tech named John Shin. to see more behind the scenes junk check out my facebook album.

Moving Planets With Third Eye Blind

In support of Third Eye Blind's newest album titled " Ursa Major" I spent last weekend photographing like crazy.. some 14 or so different set ups in 2 days. FEW! None of which would have been possible if it wasn't for the awesome crew I was blessed to have, totally busting their asses, including but not limited to moving planets! SO THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!! My stylist buddy Claire Mack was way into getting a little nutty with the concepts.. pulling everything from antique ventriloquist dolls to bear suits, and it all really paid off. Of course the band was a blast to work with, and Stephan Jenkins had no problem performing a bunch of wacky characters for my camera. I'll feed more of those images into the blog as I work on them, and you'll be able to understand what I mean a little better.
