Telekinetic Yeti: Stoned and Feathered

  There seems to be a never-ending supply of stoner/doom/metal on YouTube these days. This afternoon I stumbled across Telekinetic Yeti from Iowa. The band has popped up a few times in my YouTube feed recently, but today I took a chance on rock and was rewarded for my effort. Apparently, the band’s first album Abominable was released through Bandcamp.com on March 17, 2017. Do yourself a favor and check it out ASAP.   It seems that the two member band idea has really struck a chord with me lately,…

Photo Story: Miniature Perspectives

Miniature models used in a music video shoot for forced perspective effects.

  Recently, I headed to Texas to shoot a couple music videos with Ashley Worhol, lead singer of the band Worhol. Fellow Houstonian Tod Waters, owner of Junker Designs was directing the videos and enlisted my services to DP the project.   One of the segments we were shooting required the use of miniature models to create forced perspectives. An old friend from the local Houston music scene, Kevin Forbes, was great help in providing and maintaining the models. It took quite a long time to line up the models…

Photo Session: We Start Wars

  There’s a new band in town! I recently had the opportunity to photograph LA band We Start Wars.

Posing 6 people at once was a challenge at times, but everything worked out great in the end.   The main promo photo was shot on a red seamless background…

The best golf clubs money can buy can’t help the short comings of the Long Beach chapter of the Mediocre Golf Association. The 2013 season was a struggle for all players, but it was at the Fore! Cinco de Mayo-ish tournament that the beer fueled mayhem got the best of the team. How many MGA tour members can ride in one golf cart? Well, all of them! Many thanks to the El Dorado Golf Course for dealing with the team. It was my job as team documentarian to shoot and edit the highlight…

Punk Rock Isn’t Dead! Face to Face – Triple Crown of Shows

Punk band Face to Face play live at the Observatory in Anaheim

That’s right, punk rock isn’t dead! Face to Face returns to the Observatory for three sold out shows. This video was a marketing piece to tie in Face to Face with Lucky 13 Apparel and ASG Guitars. The band was in the middle of doing their Triple Crown of Shows at the Observatory in Orange County. Over a couple days Todd Huber and I shot Face to Face with very much the same style we used when shooting Agnostic Front a couple months prior, leading up to the release of…
