Had the privilege and honor to photograph Staff Sargent Juan Paredes yesterday in the studio. He is retiring from the Army after 12 years of service. Great guy to talk with and I wish him all the best. Thank you Juan for your service.
I have been shooting a fair number of executive headshots lately. Haven’t had any requests for a black & white, and as a result don’t normally view my work in this format. Jeff mentioned he would like to see a b&m version in addition to the full color finals. A few tweaks and – whalla, a pretty good rendition. I’m pleased with the results, adds a bit of sophistication, might have to find a reason to do more this way.
Thank you Jeff it was a pleasure having you at the studio and I really enjoyed talking with you.

Video collage of a shoot we did with High School Graduate Cerenthia. She was full of energy during the shoot and the results made for a memorable graduation photo shoot. We had a great time doing this shoot in our studio and around Long Beach, enjoy.
Technical geekery: Canon 5dm1 & 1dm3, various lenses, off camera lighting from reflectors and canon 580ex2 in a medium softbox on a stand.
It’s been quite awhile since my last update to the blog, the web site, twitter feed… or just about anywhere online, not even so much as ping from me in quite some time.
That’s all changed now!
We have just launched our new main web site tonight. Must be all the coffee I’m drinking these days, but I’m burning up the hours with work and it feels great!
The new site
might will have a few bugs in the system. I’ll try and get them worked out as I find them. For the most part, its all up and working (as far as I know). If you do come across a broken link, button, or find another problem please contact me and I’ll get it sorted out.
Be sure to check out:
Happy New Year to all of you. From all of us at Smash Photo Studio, Thank You for your support in 2011. We hope 2012 will be an even better year for you.
We are now ready for business as usual and are looking forward to serving as your rental studio again!
Currently in the process of returning all the phone calls and emails. Please be patient as we will get to you shortly.

Wishing all those special women we call Mom, a very happy Mother’s Day.
Now I can guilt my daughter into cleaning the house today.
WOW! Have I not updated any photos in quite some time. So I have a huge back log of images that I could be posting here and just not sure why I haven’t. So today I came across an old shoot I did with our good friend David Griffin, he supplied the models and we supplied the studio and lighting. Here are a few snaps I took, as soon as I remember everybody’s name I’ll update the post.
