Martay Music Photos in Santa Cruz

I had the pleasure of taking some new photos for Martay Music this last weekend. We had good weather, though a few clouds would have been nice. Here’s her Website:

(Apr. 16, 2014) Martay picked a photo from this session for her next album cover:

A behind the scenes shot. I like using a full studio flash on location as it helps keep up with the power of the sun as well as nice color: (Martay’s dad took the photo.)

Lacey was looking for some new edgy photos. I had a few ideas, so we went to try to do as many as we could this last Saturday.

Pete Moon Headshots

by on Oct.28, 2010, under Portrait, Blog

Local comedian Pete Moon needed a head shot for his new comedy gig. Unfortunately it was hot that day. I tried out my 4×5 with “Poloraid” film and the Petzval lens, the kind of lens used in early portraits 100+ years ago.
