Streets of Hong Kong #1: Yau Ma Tei Fruit Market

Here is part one from my series of night photo missions I conducted on a recent trip to Hong Kong. In this particular series, I visit the Yau Ma Tei fruit market. It’s a bustling hive of activity which kicks off daily at around 2am. It’s a top location for travel photographers trying to capture the essense of the city’s people at work. It was raining that night so I managed to get some wicked reflection shot in the surrounding areas as well!

Photoshoot w/Cynnie J

I’m back in Los Angeles a month today so I thought I’d share some photos from a recent shoot with my second favorite unsigned L.A. singer song writer; the wonderful Cynnie J. We shot on location in West Hollywood on the Sunset Strip at Sunset. Here are a few of my faves from that photoshoot!

NYC Collection: #54

A few shots around Times Square in NYC during a morning summer rain storm. I was tracking the storm via radar and I knew it would pass directly over the midtown area so I headed up there to intercept the storm. The sky went from light to dark very quickly creating the perfect conditions to shoot a small series of reflection shots.

A few days in Parker, Arizona.

God I love the Parker Strip so much! Here are a few shots from a recent trip there. It's a ten mile section of the Colorado river on the Arizona/California state line where you can go boating and cliff jumping. It's like an oasis in the middle of the hot desert. Beers, burgers, & boats. Good times!
