This is your brain on Meagan

There is a girl here in Las Vegas… her name is Meagan Taechon. She’s a model. We’ve talked for quite a while about shooting and were finally able to get together on Saturday. I am very happy she came to the studio. I am also really pleased that Conny Wissenback was able to play makeup/hair for me as well. She is one of the most talented makeup artists I have had the pleasure of working with. You don’t need to look any further... Read More

Hipstamatic and me…

So I downloaded the Hipstamatic app for my iPhone. I love it to death. In fact, I love it so much I am un-jailbreaking my iPhone just so I can buy the add-on packs. If you have an iPhone, you should buy it. Also, if you want to print the photos, go to the settings and make sure you select the hi-res option… gives you more to play with once it’s out of the camera(phone). ... Read More

Photo Bang Bang and Frankenhand

I didn’t realize how long it had been since I posted an entry… so, I have been working on getting Photo Bang Bang off the ground, as well as recovering from hand surgery. Three weeks ago to the day, I had a tumor removed from my right hand. It was a lipoma, so it was benign… I was happy to hear that news. The recovery has been a fairly steady process. It was tough to do much of anything for the first week and a half. I am right handed…... Read More

Wilkommen a Photo Bang Bang

I am opening up a studio in the Arts District in Las Vegas with my partner in crime and Sexy Photo Trip co-host, Matt Terhune and our good friend Curtis Joe Walker. It is at 224 Imperial Ave at the corner of 3rd St in downtown Las Vegas. The space doubles as a gallery for First Fridays out here. We are aiming to have our first, “First Friday” on June 4th. Should be a blast and if you are in the area, make yourself known to us. Do... Read More

Emma Emma Bo Bemma

Emma came by today… she’s a local model who needed a new headshot for her agency. I did the headshot she wanted… then as I was moving stuff around I noticed a really cool little pocket of light hitting the wall from the window up near the ceiling, so I threw on a corset and neck corset and positioned her for action (that sounds way more awesome than it is). I think I found my Julianne Moore… ... Read More

Girls, Corsets and Horses

On Thursday I had the opportunity to shoot at some horse stables in Boulder City, NV. The shoot was setup by Lisa Lorenz. Lisa is a Corset designer based in the Las Vegas area. She is awesome… I like her. I really had no idea what to expect, since I have never really been to a commercial horse stable before… all of the tenants lease space there to keep their horses. I didn’t grow up around horses and had no concept of what it would... Read More

Papa John

When I used to live in Long Island City, there was a homeless man who lived in his car directly outside my apartment. He was 73 years old at the time and lived in the neighborhood all his life. He went by the name “Papa John.” John spent his days and evenings drinking to pass the time. If you walked by him on the street he would most likely wave, smile and say hello. He was a really kind person and aside from talking too much and... Read More

Glenn

Continuing with my portrait series at work, I got a call to do a quick portrait of Glenn. Glenn has such a great face. In his own words, we captured his “wonderful jaded quality.” I am loving this whole “take pictures at work” thing I have going. It’s nice to be able to do something personally rewarding while being at work. While my job (like any) can be frustrating at times, things could be a lot worse. I will continue... Read More

Rad

Continuing with my jack + bill photo work today. I had a visit from Rad. Rad was asked to grace us with his ink for the lifestyle abstracts that we are shooting for the website. As an added bonus I got him to stick around for a couple of portraits. Rad is full of personality and always has a smile on his face(at least I usually see him with a smile). As you’ll see, Rad is… well he’s pretty rad. Do it:Share on Facebook (Opens in... Read More
