Brenton Lee Salon – Fashion Shoot

A cutting edge Salon in Pasadena, great  stylists - and a fantastic model (Brook McKenzie) - This was a hot fashion shoot - no really, 'HOT' - (summer in California hot!) But Brook kept it cool as you can see from her poses and imagination. The pictures say it all. Looking forward to more time behind the lens with the Brenton Lee Salon 72-dpi-IMG_6480-Edit

He found his Darlyn – Spring Wedding!

Donald always liked Nicaragua - especially the beautiful landscape, beaches and  food. Then   he found another reason to like  Central America.  Her name was Darlyn! But it was 3000 miles from Managua to Cucamonga!  The answer for him and her was "I Do"!  And so a Spring wedding!  Maybe I will be able to photograph her home town when they celebrate one of their wedding anniversary dates!

TCM Film Festival – Poolside!

Each year, the TCM Classic Film Festival invades Hollywood with a 4-day festival of nothing but classic films. Saturday, I was happy to attend a poolside screening of the 1974 disaster flick EARTHQUAKE at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel as part of the festival. Legendary actor Richard Roundtree (SHAFT!) was present for a Q&A with actress Illeana Douglas. He talked about his role as the Evil Kneivel-esque daredevil in the film, but also opened up about his career and personal life--including his battle with breast cancer. It was a candid conversation in a magical setting.
