Brewster and Nancy Cotton

August 27, 2009
Brewster and Nancy were one of the nicest couples I've met. Very easy to work with and adventurous enough to venture down to Lumahai Beach, the cliffs and crashing waves. We had their intimate ceremony at Lumahai Beach, but I noticed a nice rugged cliff with crashing waves that would make a nice image, if they agreed to join me...they did! Mahalo Charity Vazquez for the perfect reflector work that was required to make these images.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexio (Album shoot)
A few weeks ago I took my team down to Cabo and we shot Westley, who is one heck of a guitarist. His music immediately captured my attention and when they asked me to shoot their album art for his upcoming debut CD, I was honored. The disk is called "Wavedance". I'll blog it as soon as the mp3's become available online. Its not even in print yet! So we shot at sunrise and sunset for 2 days and got some amazing shots. In between the shoots, I was able to get some fishing, exploring, fish tacos and siestas! I think its been over a year since I've had a siesta. Needless to say, we had an amazing time and came away with a body of work I'm proud of. I want to thank the family for taking such good care of us and putting us up in their sweet pacific ocean view home.
