Attended another Police Unity Tour event to raise money for Eric’s new tires for the bike ride to Washington, D.C. They must be amazing tires because this time an entire concert was held to raise money. The reality is actually summed up on the Police Unity Tour web site:
The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty.
The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum.
High time I did another pin-up themed model shoot with two of my favorite fellow artists, Karen (makeup) and Tracey (hair). Brian from Wayne’s Speed Shop was kind enough to let us use his sweet 1950 Chevrolet Deluxe coupe and he also picked out the location. Good work, Brian!
We started just as the sun dipped, which gave us a nice scene to sculpt with speedlites and a big ole softbox hooked up to my ABR800.
It was a hilarious shoot as usual with this bunch and a few of the locals came to check it out. Including some dude that claimed to be a Hell’s Angel. There is no way this guy was one of them either. You can’t go around lying about something like that, sir!
Want to schedule a shoot with me? Take a look at my photography work and contact me.

If memory serves me, I’ve never attended a jazz event. So why not go see the Orrin Evans Quartet? The musicianship of these particular jazz musicians is something worth seeing. Very creative and spontaneous things came out of them during the performance. Also, big thumbs up to Makeda’s Morrocan meatballs. Friggin’ amazing!
New Jersey offered us the tried and true overcast day. Sigh. How do you make that work? Keep things simple and think in black and white. Keely slipped and slid all over the muddy ground to get to a few of the spots. In sandals no less.
Toward the end of the session I gave Kevin my other camera and asked him to act like a creep standing behind a tree. Since we’re all friends with bizarre senses of humor, this really isn’t as weird as it sounds and it made us laugh. When ‘Lil Loria is born, the weather will be bright and cheery. This session will be a reminder in the future that even the grey days lead to a colorful one.
Natural Systems Utilities, based out of Hillsborough, New Jersey tasked me with creating a short video explaining water treatment at a facility in Battery Park City. Located in the lower west side of Manhattan, the facility inside The Visionaire features an impressive array of equipment to clean and reuse waste water. An educational fun project to be involved with for sure!
