We had the honor of shooting the Sno-ball party, one of the many joint birthday parties we’ve shot over the years (remember April Mistakes?!) and it was quite a blast. People dressed up in many ways, and we’re honored that Betabrand has decided to use a few shots on their website (above). They’ve got some [...]

…but it’s our job to make it look delightful! This was particularly the case at a recent shoot (our third) we did for American Crown catalog. The Alameda beach is located right on the edge of the San Francisco bay; with it’s sweeping views of San Francisco and the Bay Bridge it offers an ideal [...]
Photography is something that many people are passionate about (like us!) but even if you are passionate about something else, you will identify with parts of Bill Cunningham New York, the excellent film about the legendary New York Times photographer. The film takes a fascinating look at Cunningham’s life/style and the choices he’s made throughout [...]
A few pics snapped on Wednesday – The good folks over at The Bold Italic have assembled many awesome events in honor of The Haberdash: A Week of Fashion for Men. (their creation as well) Held at the Crescent Hotel’s Burritt Room, snazzy San Franciscans and friends gathered to sip cocktails and soak in the [...]
Look at that munchkin! Back in May, Natalie helped me out with a t-shirt shoot for Hyphen Magazine. The models were a great mix of staff and Hyphen readers (and future readers, give him 5 years). They’ll be updating the webstore soon with images and updated merchandise at hyphenmagazine.com.
I can’t live without pockets. I hate having limited storage options and one of the coolest things I’ve been seeing at weddings lately is pockets in dresses. My most recent wedding had the coolest pockets – integrated right into the stylish wedding gown.
“Virginia Suicide” does Courtney Love All I knew about this assignment is that there would be a gaggle of drag queens, a fashion contest in the vain of Project Runway, and it would take place at Mama Calizo’s Voice Factory down the street from our studio. I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I [...]
Here comes the fog (which is actually the most flattering light in photography, folks; don’t miss the sun too much) and here comes the bride. A beautiful ceremony in the Shakespeare Garden in our local Golden Gate Park, featuring our favorite color, brings about the union of Tamar and Brian photographed by Jake and Myleen. [...]
Poladroid is a ridiculously easy-to-use piece of software that you can download for free. You drag in any image and it spits out a Polaroid-like version in seconds. It weirdly satisfying to use because you see the image “develop” in real-time and it even sets of a satisfying click-a-churn Polaroid camera sound. It’ll add on [...]
A few selections from the party we hosted on Friday night – good times again – thanks to all who made it out!
We’ve been talking to the casting team from America’s Next Top Model and they will be doing a casting call here in San Francisco next month and will be in town next week. Here’s the details if you are under 5’7″ and interested in trying out: “Have you always wanted to model but were never [...]
Here’s an alternate take on the photo that we took that ran in this month’s Nob Hill Gazette for their Doers Profiles. I used different toning on the colors to mute the saturation more on this and liked the feel we got with that. The only regret was with the limited time we couldn’t fidget [...]
Oh, here is one more from the Gen Art Fresh Faces in Fashion after-party. He was a wee bit early for Halloween.

Here’s a little clip of our extremely popular live projection/feed that we can pair up with our photo booth photography. This was during Macy’s Passport in San Francisco last week and you can see the images being shot shown on the plasma screens pretty quickly after the shot. The files are transferred wirelessly to a [...]
Recently I have been doing some test shoots with local models. I have so much fun with these, scouting around and shooting on-location, and they tend to turn into mini adventures. Here are a couple from a recent portrait session with Gabriela, at sunset in Bernal Heights. Thanks much to Myleen for the help and [...]
This Saturday I photographed some lifestyle shots for Kris Nations Jewelry in Golden Gate Park. The Nations sisters are passionate about the craft and I love that most of their materials are recycled metals and vintage glass bits and that everything is made locally in their Oakland studio. They have some beautiful pieces and I’m [...]
Kirsty was able to steal away the couple on their wedding day for an extended portrait session. I like the fashion shoot feel and can see these printed large for hanging on the wall. I’m sure they’ll treasure these photos for many many years. [autoviewer=7,600,450]
I helped Gene out with this fun profile fashion shoot a few weeks ago. The select was just published in the Nob Hill Gazette. Since the theme was “Luxury at the Pump,” we set up shop at the ol’ San Francisco Petroleum Co. station in the Dogpatch. Cement trucks and double decker tour buses kept [...]
