I Didn’t Wanna Leave Ya Hangin’

Been a little bit since my last post. I have been crushed at work with creating marketing messages for new product releases. I have been getting out of the office late and have had little time for myself. That sucks! But what doesn’t suck is that I have a few photo shoots scheduled for the weekend! My favorite curvy muse, Khrist, is stopping by to give me a little redemption after my last shoot. I have decided to keep this […]

What’s Old Is New Again

Geez. The things I wish I could tell 12-year old me… “Don’t let people tell you video games are a waste of time. Keep drawing. Who cares if you keep getting in trouble because your Mom finds doodles where your school work should be. It’ll work out for you later. Give up trying to be the cool kid. You’ll end up as a nerd anyways. You should have introduced yourself to that cute Filipino girl in Home Ec. class instead […]

And THIS Is Why I Don’t Plan… The Best Laid Plans

So I just posted about the lessons learned and how I needed to do a better job planning. But what happens when you make every attempt to plan and everything falls apart anyways? Well, that’s what I am dealing with right now. You know that Pokemon-themed bondage shoot I have been planning for the last month? Not happening. My models have other obligations and my shoot dropped to the bottom. Now with scheduling conflicts, I am the odd man out. […]

The Countdown Begins

My favorite event of the year is 4 weeks away and I am counting it down. Yes, the countdown to Otakon 2016 begins today! I have been attending Otakon for several years. I have never cosplayed or led a panel, but I have attended cosplay burlesque shows and the ever popular “WTF Did I Just Watch” on numerous occasions. I managed to accidentally take over a photography 101 panel a couple of years ago. My bad… Of all of the […]

Planning Is NOT My Strength… But I AM Trying

So I have a few days before my next shoot. I am planning a Pokemon-themed shoot and I have taken my experiences from my last shoot and applying them to this one. One of the things I think I really learned was that I must PLAN, PLAN, PLAN. So now I have a spiral notebook to jot all of my notes in rather than relying on my horrible A.D.D.-riddled memory. I have assembled a Pinterest board to share with the […]

I Think I May Have Dropped The Ball

One of my favorite models stopped by the DMV on her East Coast Tour and hung out with me for a day — KHRIST! Just a heads up, this is a total rambling rant. I have a lot of ideas floating around in my head… Thank you to the amazingly awesome MUA, Tia, for providing the makeup and doing some light hair work. I don’t know what I’d do without you — besides spend countless hours in Photoshop doing what […]

I Need a Portrait of This Pirate

I was browsing the interwebs a week ago, killing time while I was waiting for my family to get tired of being at my place when I ran across an image that made me get all kinds of excited (for multiple reasons…). Bandai has been doing a few gender cross figures and I must say, the ones for the anime series One Piece are amazing! This new figure is of the main character Luffy and I NEED TO SHOOT THIS! […]

Otakon 2016 Photography Pre-Thoughts

Otakon 2016 is only a month away and I am getting super anxious and super excited! Otakon is one of my favorite annual events and I have been for multiple consecutive years. This year is a bit different. I generally attend as a spectator — an American otaku spending hours upon hours in panels, Artists Alley and the Dealer’s Room. I make an occasional stop by the Game Room for grins and giggles. However, this year, I am attending as […]
