Heidi Holden

Here are some portraits of Heidi Holden I made a little while ago - she's launching her own nutritionist business and needed a fresh face for a fresh biz. Nothing too fancy - just clean, simple, professional and flattering.

These are some photos from a night out at the Elbo Room and Casanova. I don't know, I kinda like them...

Oaksterdam University for Chronicle of Higher Education

I spent a day making photos at Oaksterdam University for Chronicle of Higher Education a few weeks ago. Oaksterdam University, America's first cannabis college, teaches all aspects of the cannabis industry so that students are prepared to find work in one of the hundreds of dispensaries in California or to start their own business. I'm pretty unfamiliar with this scene so it was great to get exposed to a new world, and everyone was super friendly.

Taiwanese New Year

A couple of weeks ago, my good friend Emilie took me to an annual Taiwanese New Year celebration in a downtown Oakland loft/warehouse. It was an impressive event - great food, fire dancing and a Bollywoodesque play with lots of interesting costumes - all coordinated by Jennie Chuang.

It was nice to take photos just for fun, which I haven't done in quite awhile. One camera, one lens, no deadlines... and the most beautiful tiger I've ever seen!
