Instagram :: June 2012

Expression of daily life with Instagram and iPhoneography is a never ending adventure.  I’m happy to post the monthly update for June 2012.

Wine, camping, telescopes, palaces, concerts, the Golden Gate Bridge, rusty snails and nasty hospital food all caught my attention this past month…

Expression of daily life with Instagram and iPhoneography continues. Though I’ve been less active than previous months lately, I’m happy to post the monthly update to recap April 2012.

Seattle, trains, mountains, views, record store day, a new facebook page, rooftops and art shows all caught my attention this past month…

The 12th Annual Edwardian World’s Faire | Edwardian Ball – Regency Ballroom San Francisco, CA

What a treat and what an honor it was to photograph the 12th Annual Edwardian World’s Faire through SF Station! The Edwardian World’s Faire is part of the Edwardian Ball, an event that will take you back to the turn of the century (the previous century!), and have you schmoozing and galavanting with the most well-dressed crowd you’ll ever see.   Everyone in attendance were too nice for words, and I’ll just have to let the pictures tell the story of the times we had… See you next year!

Instagram :: August 2011

Stories of peat monsters, construction, travel and music, August was a slow month for me on Instagram. My photography business has been picking up and I’m working with a real camera way more than I’m using the one in my iPhone for leisurely snapping. Kinda bummed about the lack of an IG gallery this month, but happy that the reason those little square crop images are missing from my life recently is an exciting one. It’s been years in the making, and something that I’m very proud of.

Bay Area Girls Rock Camp Band Photos | Summer 2011

Last month I took on a very exciting and rewarding personal project – photographing the 16 bands of the Bay Area Girls Rock Camp… in 8 hours.

A very musical friend of mine, Jamie Freedman, mentioned that the organizers of the BAGRC were looking for a photographer to capture portraits of the bands during their last week of camp, and I naturally jumped at the chance to work with these young talented musicians. It was a exciting and incredibly fun task of setting up 16 30-minute photo sessions over two days, and keeping the schedule on track. In the end, the 80 campers, dozens of organizers and I all had a lot of fun making these photographs come to life. Special thanks to Executive Director, Carey Faye-Horowitz, for inviting me to photograph the bands, and for graciously helping me out with scheduling and organizational logistics.

Whitney Nichole and Keeley Valentino | Pacific Northwest ‘Tour on the Edge of Glory’

Throughout the first half of July, I had the pleasure of wearing many hats on Whitney Nichole and Keely Valentino‘s aptly dubbed ‘Tour on the Edge of Glory.’ Part tour manager, part roadie, part driver, part photographer/videographer & documentarian, and altogether psyched to be on the road in the name of music for a few weeks! We covered a large swath of the Pacific Northwest, making stops in Redding, CA; Eugene, OR; Portland, OR; Tacoma, WA, Seattle, WA and Walla Walla, WA.

You can read all about our adventures on Whitney and Keeley’s blog on the edge of glory – http://whitneyandkeeley.blogspot.com/. A few images from the tour:

Whitney Nichole Performs for Google at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA

One of those really cool experiences you don’t often get to enjoy – spending the evening at the headquarters of Google.

Whitney Nichole performed with Abigail Picache and Kevin White at the Friday afternoon social last week, and it was a treat to join in on the experience. Everything at Google is really sweet. The campus (affectionately known as the Googleplex) is beautifully situated in Mountain View, CA and it’s all it’s cracked up to be. The employees are treated to a wonderful work environment all day every day, and once a month a Friday afternoon mixer and concert! Great food, great people, and of course great music.

Thanks to Googler, Jason Shafton, for inviting Whitney to perform for everyone at TGIF in Charlie’s Cafe!
