November at a Glance

November has offered some pretty fun shoots and a nice mix of news and corporate. I visited a Low rider "Pop-Off" battle in Mexicali, Mex where a two car clubs competed to see how high their cars could jump(through hydrolics) off the ground. It was a real cool cultural experience getting to hang with some old school homies who all share a love of cars and their Mexican heritage. Next up was a sad affair with a memorial to Nohemi Gonzalez, the sole American killed in the Paris terrorist attacks, who was a student at Cal State University Long Beach. She seemed to be such a sweet, promising young lady who had a wonderful and fulfilling life ahead of her. It's inconceivable to imagine how this has effected her family and friends. My heart goes out to her loved ones. Next up was some corporate work for a private high school in La Jolla. It's one of my favorite clients in that I get carte blanche to go around and just shoot cool picks. I don't have to get any names or permissions which is so refreshing and makes it so much easier to get good shots. I love seeing kids doing their thing and learning and growing. Finally, I covered and anti-Islamophobia rally at SDSU. With all the 24 hour news cycle from the Paris attacks, many in the Muslim community, are being harassed verbally and physically and these students just wanted to show they are good people who support peace and non-violence.
Happy holidays to all and thanks for stopping by.
