Urban Outfitters - Near Stampede?!

This has got to be one of the stupidest things I have seen.  I really hate waiting in line.  I hate even more, waiting in a line that has a small chance of killing me. To take the cake: this video is from Urban Outfitters.  Really?   Now I love Urban Outfitters as much as the next guy.  I've got one on my street.  It is frighteningly empty with sales signs in the window.


I don't really get the whole Black Friday wait for hours, risk hurting myself, my loved ones and others..... so that I can have the privilege of shopping. Something these stores spend millions trying to get me to do anyway. I mean people have died over the years.  10 people get a $200 TV and the rest get semi normal sales prices on old stock????

To the best of my knowledge, no one was hurt in this video.  But is anyone else reminded of the 1979 tragedy at the Who concert? Maybe, it is time for stores to think a little more about safety.  How about those Great America barricades to have a nice orderly line?! 



Thanks!

Melnaie Iglesias - MTV2 Guy Code Tonight!

I hope you watched MTV2's new episode of Guy Code tonight with the super hot Melanie Iglesias.  I thought I would post the first shot from out last shoot a week or so back.  She leaked the tiniest of previews on Twitter last week, but here a super fun shot with Melanie jumping.  Follow her on http://twitter.com/MelanieIglesias, for lots of hot photos try her Facebook Fan Page, and now her new Tumblr page.

Thank you to the good people at Canon cameras who allow us to capture such hot images and keep them forever.  For those of you who aspire to be photographers, I shot the image on a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon Speedlight 580 EXII and an 85mm F1.2 L series lens; 1/320sec, F5.6 ISO 400.  Makeup by Oz Rodriguez.

Also, for the few of you who don't know, Melanie and I have done some very cool shoots and videos.  Here is the link to ALL Melanie posts from my blog; including both Flip Book 1,2 and 3, some behind the scenes shots, twitter posts, the teaser video…everything.

Nue by Shani - Bicycle Built for Two

I want to share my new shoot with NUE by Shani.  The collection features dresses with built in body architecture that comfortably shapes and smoothes a woman's body from top to bottom creating a flawless figure.  Follow them on Facebook.


We had so much fun with the tandem bicycle.  My only regret is that when my assistant Spencer rode the bike to the shoot and someone shouted at him, "You lost your passenger!" that he didn't respond with something like "Grandma?!"





Shot with a Canon 5D Mark II and Broncolor Scoro lighting.
