Garsh, I love these guys. I've known them since they were in high school, was a best man at their wedding, and godfather to their eldest. And had a great shoot with them locally. What you see is what you get: fun and eccentric and loving people. See more here

Another fire not far away. The Holy Jim Fire, or Holy Fire, is in Trabuco Canyon but made its way over the hills and down onto the east side. Took a bunch of pictures (see them here
) and got covered well in The Patch. (here

Quick overall shoot at Calvary Chapel Fallbrook website. Hard to think of a place more hospitable than this. My worst mistake: Going to a church where no one knows me and asking to see the pastor because I'm there to shoot the church and needed to see him first. Pix here.

Another fun couple hours of shooting here. Follow-up headshots and some candid stuff. Fun people they are…

Never shot a family this big. Almost two dozen all on a crowded beach with crappy light. But it worked out wonderfully! The clouds moved in a bit, a giant space cleared against the rocks and the family was amazingly cooperative. Ended up being a great time. More here
27 07 18 10:57
What a wonderful shoot this turned out to be. Most are from-the-pier shots (in Oceanside). The woman were awesome. And the waves were beautiful. More here
25 07 18 12:52
Another fire here in SoCal. The Cranston fire was big and destructive as expected but this one was clearly making its own weather. These are pyrocumulus clouds. Beautiful and frightening.
14 07 18 14:35
This was a bucket of fun. Took a bunch of lighting equipment to Tovey Shultz Construction Company in Elsinore and fired away. Great bunch of people there and easy to work with! Thanks for trusting us for these shots! See more corporate head shots here
30 06 18 16:46
What another wonderful day put on in Encinitas for BroAm 2018! Sheesh! Surfing and Music and all community-based. Got to shot the whole thing. And got punished in the Patch. More pix? See here
26 06 18 16:48
Got an opportunity to shoot a local business for their website and brochure. Relatively new experience for me so had a lot of fun experimenting. Woo hoo! Thanks, Coby!
25 06 18 16:47
My goofball niece. She and my son and my sister went to Laguna for this fun. They turned out nice but makes me sad she's growing up so quickly. See more here

Sweet shoot with a sweet kid at RoseHaven the time. On her way to Calvary Chapel Bible College, Best of success, Maddie! More here

Cannot and will not deny my love for these people, these silly and loving people at Student venture. I was asked to shoot their reunion, and did. Wonderful time. Was only supposed to shoot the opening but stayed the whole time. So inspiring. See more here
05 06 18 16:46
Quick shoot for my beautiful friend, Vanessa, for new business cards. Her goofball daughter helped with the lighting. Had to photoshop her out of the picture. Sorry, sweetie.

Another beautiful pregnancy shoot. This one at Briar Rose winery with Briar. What are the odds? More here

05 05 18 15:03
Nice little shoot at Glen Arbor park before the big prom for Temecula Valley High School. Was fun shooting Carmen again (the one with the hair), but also Lilly and her bf. More here
22 04 18 08:20
Fifth time shooting this young woman. The other four times were with family. This time with unborn. Beautiful shoot at RoseHaven in Temecula with wonderful lighting and more than a little help from a fellow photographer with the lighting and ideas. More here
08 04 18 09:45
Had a chance to shoot a fellow photographer at Santa Rosa Plateau. Went very nicely. She and her daughter genuinely love each other. I think that came out. Hope so anyways!!!
06 04 18 09:44
First time here. Won't be the last time. Got stopped by a grounds getsapo. Was told to put my shade away. Why? No reason. But the lady, who I swear is a rejected HOA Nazi, also told me unprovoked that I don't look like a professional. Thanks. The rest of the day was nice and the grounds are stunning, even at $25 per person.
05 04 18 09:45
My Happy Place, the plateau is. So peaceful and even prettier when green. Just keep adding on to my Plateau collection on Flickr. Bury me here. Really. No joke. They are filed here
04 04 18 09:43
Just an excuse to get out and add to each other's portfolios. Around Old Town Temecula this time to hunt for new spots. There are many.
31 03 18 08:37
Oh sheesh, am I proud of this young woman! A former student of mine, Kailey is about to start her career as a vet. Woo hoo! Great shoot with our mutual friend Angela helping us. Thanks Briar Rose Winery for kindly allowing us to use your beautiful grounds to shoot. More here
30 03 18 09:46
Nice day at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park with my wife. Took the long lens of course so I could shoot right up the nose of some animals. Sheesh, love this lens. More here
22 03 18 20:47
Had a nice assignment from yearbook: shoot the swim meet before the yearbook deadline. OK! Here are some of the pix. Had fun with the giant 150-600. Close in on the up-close pix; water makes a wonderful design over some of the faces. They are here
18 03 18 08:59
Action-packed night at this event at Temecula Valley High. Great opportunity to try my hand at dance photos. Ain's the easiest thing in the world but the results make it worth it. Well done, kids! More here
10 03 18 08:57
Shot these young women in the rain as they won the CIF championship game at Temecula Valley High School. Way to go, girls!!!
23 02 18 08:57
Two days of wonderful speakers, wonderful fellowship, deep questions, heavy discussion and seeing old friends. I had the privilege of being the photographer for the event. Thanks, Reasons To Believe, as always for your challenges, your friendship and your love. More pix are here

Several generations for this big shoot in Murrieta. Good time had by all as we tried to beat the sun, a common angst-ridden characteristic with good light together with a load of people. See here
. And here
26 11 17 10:54
This was a pleasure - shooting my son and is girlfriend. Blesses me to see my son happy. A few more pix here soon.
25 11 17 10:54
A little edgy sort of engagement shoot starring my niece and her fiancé. Coronado in San Diego and no pain-in-the-butt permits to worry about. Love you, sweetie! Here
are some more pix.
24 11 17 10:54
Sheesh this was a weird one. Got stopped by a state park trooper in Newport who took her job very seriously. We apparently needed a permit. Why? She had no answer. Yay. So could not use any reflectors because they were "professional." (She said this as people with phones were walking by and on their way the beach to take pix.) But Michael and I made the most of it and the photographs came out pretty nicely, methinks. They are here
. Thanks, Kim for trusting us again to capture your family moments!
22 11 17 10:54
Not our style at all but we were volunteered to do a "family portrait" shoot of nearly 70 families at a Thanksgiving Eve service. Used the lights we brought. But added lights came from the parking lot. And the basketball courts. And a hot air balloon lighting up behind our "set." Interesting time.
11 11 17 09:22
This turned out to be pretty cool. I only went to the parade in Murrieta to get pix of the vets, which is always special, but turned out shooting the whole place up. And then got picked up by the local online paper who published almost everything I send them. You can see that here
. Thanks, Patch!
06 11 17 15:50
Fun shoot under cloudy, wonderfully lit, skies in Temecula for this young family. Two colleagues of mine at school and their little dolly. Another repeat performance - third time for them. Always good when that happens. Here
are some. Thanks, you guys!
04 11 17 10:29
Did a favor for a friend and shot a waterpolo CIF game in Temecula at the high school (TVHS). Was fun! And had two nice lenses to cover it. See some here
21 10 17 17:53
Yay for a new lens! Yay for a fun family! Yay for the Santa Rosa Plateau! Got to photograph this family for the 6th time. Things worked out quite nicely I must say. Thanks to my boy, Michael, for the lighting help! More pix? Go here

Fun time at Chino Airport with the wedding of the daughter of a former student. The airport was an awesome backdrop for the pictures as you can see above. Will post soon. Thanks, Charlye!!!

We got to do a shoot out at Wilson Creek Wineries today as three weddings were going on simultaneously. Just a fun shoot to add to our portfolios. Always a pleasure with Angela and Michael when we do a shoot. Light-hearted and no pressure. Go here
17 09 17 15:42
Had a great fumes-filled time in Ontario tonight with my best buddy. Old and stunning cars all over the place. You can see some here
04 09 17 12:20
Literally last-minute unplanned impromptu photo shoot with mommy and baby at my daughter's house the day before the eclipse. Such a cute "couple," I couldn't stop shooting. See some here
23 07 17 23:37
Had the great pleasure of shooting this sweet family down at Oceanside Pier. Only had to contend with a thousand people. And weird windy weather. And a bevy of other photographers. All good! Came out nicely. Michael helped of course. And the sweet baby was a doll. This was our fifth shoot with this family. Always sweet. See here
01 07 17 16:24
Talk about last minute weddings. Wait, maybe we weren't. Regardless, former student married her navy boyfriend before he shipped out. Nice, backyard wedding, short and sweet and to the point.
to see some pix.

Wonderful day at Moonlight Bay in Encinitas, CA. Switchfoot's annual BroAm was in full gear with surfing and music. Got loads of nice pix of both.
