Pickup Artist

Saturday I shot the opening reception of "Tides of Emotion", the mother daughter exhibition at the James Coleman Gallery in Santa Monica. Katina Zinner's large format abstracts shared the space with dramatic bronze figures by her mom the famed photographer Christa Zinner.

Escape to Dance Mountain

Dance winners from the Dick Clark Productions hit show, "So You Think You Can Dance" kicked off their 2008 Tour with a celebration at Magic Mountain in Valencia. After dark the park closed except for cast and crew. Once I finished shooting PR pictures everyone was anxious to hit the coasters. Me, I passed.

Catherine Cunningham at BDPR, Inc. brought me on board to cover the opening reception of Olivier Pojzman's fine art photography series at
the James Coleman Gallery. Olivier who is known for his celebrity portraits showcased his fine art series featuring dramatic landscapes of Southern California beaches.
