Anime Expo [AX] 2017

Other than the extremely long line to get badges this year and the horrible organization of the whole process, once inside, tired and out of energy, I pushed through the crowd and still managed some decent images. The cosplay this year was so so and I somewhat feel that slowly less and less people are dressing up these days. Is cosplay dying? I hope not, honestly, cosplay is the main reason I go to AX and if it were to die off I’m sure they’d lose quite a bit of attendees including myself.

From the beach to the bedroom

I can’t deny that Emily and I have created some amazing images together, we have this connection that I definitely don’t get from every model. Its nice to work with someone that knows exactly what you want before you can even say a word. Emily also seems to be a favorite amongst fans of my work…I mean..can you blame them?

Glamour & Glow

[Late Post] Original Event Date Oct. 21, 2016

Glamour & Glow is one of my favorite events here in San Diego. Dave Soko of GlamourinGlow.com has created a number of these black lit, painted model events usually held at newer venues around town. GG is a very creative fun way for local makeup, hair & body paint artist to show off their skills.

Below are just a few of my favorite BTS images of the most recent show at Trilogy Sanctuary in La Jolla, CA. Be sure to keep a lookout for the next Glamour & Glow show in SD or somewhere closer to home.

Exploring with Megan

Megan and I decided to do a little exploring/picture taking on a very cold rainy day.We headed out to Lake Hodges dam and trekked down the man made trail to the entrance.

Note: This area is very dangerous and prohibited to enter, I do not condone anyone to enter the premises.

Built in 1918 Hodges dam was built and created Lake Hodges itself which when completely full is about 115 feet deep. Unfortunately with the images below you can’t see the full extent of the dam but honestly, no image I’ve seen can show how massive this place is. Inside are multiple rounded doorways that lead to rooms upon rooms upon rooms all of which are decked out with graffiti. A walkway along the top (as seen below) lines the dam from left to right.

Although freezing, Megan killed it that day and we got some great images and even better memories!
