Day 59 (February 28th)

Day 2 of set up went awesome! We were getting started setting up when one of Archie's buddies came by the shop an dropped by some surf boards for him, so Jess and I started telling him that he needed to do a photo with the surfboard. We talked him into going out side and letting us through water on him for a classic surf photo.

Day 56 (February 25th)

Hung out with my pops today and went downtown. I wanted to take pictures of the stained glass windows in the down town catholic church for a while now, and today they were looking especially beautiful. I really enjoy all different types of art and its nice to see more of the Renaissance art style every once in a while.

Day 55 (February 24th)

Went on a really awesome adventure today with Lisa! We went up to Donner summit to take photos and we decided to go climb this mountain side to get to the old train tunnels in the hill. We started walking through the tunnels and I saw a thing blocking the light from the other side so we ventured further across the ice at the bottom of the tunnel, and found this really awesome frozen water fall in the middle of the tunnel. We came across 3 guys walking through the tunnel that gave me lots of history on the tunnel and the rail way! This was the origional tunnel through the hill side that was made by the Chinese immigrant workers. This tunnel was dug at 7 inches a day for however long it took to get to the other side, and where the water fall is their is a whole going to the surface where they started carving this tunnel. It was a really awesome trip.

My great grandma got out of the hospital today, so we went and visited her at her house. This is a picture of her night stand with her perfume and a picture of her husband that I unfortunately never got a chance to meet. It is just nice to see her back home and feeling better!

Day 53 (February 22nd)

This is a triple exposure of my friends Kyle and Caitlyn. They used to have a inside joke going where they would lick each others faces. I wanted to show them and their crazy face licking relationship with todays photo and it turned out pretty funny to me.

Day 49 (February 18th)

Day 3 of my climbing trip with the guys. I woke up pretty early after caping, we packed up our stuff really fast so we didn't have to pay, but the guy beat us to the car on our last load, so we gave him fake names and numbers, and went on our way. We went to this rad mountain (that I can't remember the name of), We hiked our way up through the clouds and arrived at this really sweet climbing spot! I got this shot right after we got through the cloud layer.

Day 43 (February 12th)

Went on a late night photo mission, but nothing was speaking out to me, so I went over to the 24 hour store to get a little shopping done before my camping trip this weekend. This is a shot with my fisheye camera where I stuck a tall bottle of beer over the lens.

Day 42 (February 11th)

I went out shooting with my dad today. It was a really good time hanging out shooting guns. I really wanted to get a shot like this with the bullet casing flying out of the gun as my dad shot it. This photo took us a few minutes to get but I am really happy to make it happen,

Day 41 (February 10th)

I got my buddy Kyle to do this creepy homage to Donny Darko, by putting on the bunny mask and ominously standing under this light in the middle of the field. This picture actually became creepy to make because of having to walk down a completely dark road and having a bunch of random unsettling noises happen around us.

Day 40 (February 9th)

Went to San Francisco with some friends and wile we were walking around the Mission I saw this church with the mosaic on the front and I thought it would be funny to have my friends stand under it and do something funny, but we ended up meeting this group of people and I had them jump in the picture too.

Day 37 (February 6th)

Fuck the Government, fuck Obama, fuck Republicans, fuck Democrats, we need something new. No more career politicians, we need out country to be ran by our own people, not by this elite group of people that just fight, and never get any thing done. So fuck all these people. Fuck executive order, lets reclaim our rights.

Day 35 (February 4th)

I have to give my friend Geary Silva lots of props for helping me not only get shot in the face by 4 cans of silly string, but he also helped me set up the lighting in the studio at Sierra. I am so stoked that I was finally able to make this idea possible, and I have to give lots of thanks to Geary for taking a huge one for the team! Check out Geary's 365 project he is also doing this year, he has been making some awesome photos. Geary's 365 Project Link

Day 32 (February 1st)

Today I built a pinhole camera projector. This is one of many things that I have learned how to make from studying under my good friend Chris Fraser. He is the first one to ever discover the light bulb projector. These are really marvelous innovations that you kinda have to see it in person to know whats going on, and I would love to show you if you would like to see it!
