MJ

Last night I had the opportunity to work with a new hair stylist and make up artist, MJ. Our original model had cancelled and MJ stepped up and offered to be the model AND stylist AND makeup artist. Considering, my job was much easier. We (myself and my assistant Kathy) did the shots using three speedlights and were using the seedy alley behind MJ’s house as our setting. I love these shots!

I recently shot Fashion NOW: Spring Fashion Party at the Fine Line Music Cafe. I was working for IamMoody.com who was the event producer. Styles included Ariel Simone, The Buckle at MoA, Second Debut and more. Christopher Straub was in attendance and local favorite Auburn performed.

2nd Annual Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association Gala

Feb 24th, 2011 was the 2nd Annual Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association Gala. It was held at the Northland Inn in Brooklyn Park and had a turn out of around 200 guests. This event was designed as a fundraiser not only for the MCPA but for Special Olympics as well. It was produced by IamMoody and I think it was a fantastic event.

I attended the 7pm show, shooting for Minneapolis2Night. The show was great for a variety of reasons. The theme had a throwback kind of Elvis feel, it was pretty entertaining. The fashion themselves were all very nice, but I am kind of fashion ignorant so it’d be best to leave the reviews to writers like Sara Glassman at the Trib. In the meantime, have a look at my photos!

Wu-Tang at Epic Event Center

For those of you who may not know, I am the house photographer at Epic Event Center and I love my job like there is no tomorrow. I get to photograph amazing artists in a wide variety of genre’s as well as the fans who go out to party and have a good time. This past weekend, Wu-Tang Clan rolled through town on their Rebirth Tour. They had support from other rappers such as Mod Sun and Muja Messiah plus several others. This gallery can also be seen on Minneapolis2Night.
I also want to take a moment and do a little bit of gloating, when you visit Minneapolis2Night, you’ll see on the right hand side of the Party Pics area, that I am the #1 photographer by a landslide. This is where I toot my own horn and say that it’s numbers like those that validate how damn good I am icon wink Wu Tang at Epic Event Center
