Nick::: Fashion



2012-12-12_012

It's always a great feeling when someone trusts you enough to ask for your help. It's great to be able to take a position of leadership and be able to serve them. Now when the person asking is your older brother who has always had the upper-hand. It's an amazing feeling! So as you can probably imagine by now, my gorgeous brother Nick asked for some photos so he can start building a fashion portfolio. It goes without saying that we had a great time shooting, and especially a great time bossing him around a little! Haha. 
Unfortunately it started raining very early on during the shoot so we had to do almost all of it in the beautiful and unconventional Alhondiga building in Bilbao. At one point I was sitting on the ground trying to get a wide angle shot, right in front of some stairs. Suddenly hundreds of people started walking up the stairs, crowding both sides of me, and I had to just sit there holding my camera and with my eyes closed laughing and hoping for the moment to be over before I get stepped on. It was like the stampede on The Lion King. We are now still waiting for a good sunny day to take some fun outdoor shots, but for now this is what we got.

Thanks Nick for being such a great sport and letting your little sister tease you a little! ;)

Sabrina::: Anytime


2012-12-10_005

Two yankees. That's what my friend and art director friend David Barahona kept saying while we walked down the street to meet with Sabrina. It had been raining that Sunday evening which gave the sidewalks and streets that special flair and glow that I love during late evening shoots. We met up and started taking photos as she shared about how her family was originally from New York. Definitely had some funny things in common both growing up as americans in an area of Spain that knew few foreigners prior to the year 2000 or so. Quirky shots, great laughs, and en exchange of glasses is what happened. Check it!

Event::: Euskalgym 2012!!


2012-11-19_004





It was here. I had impatiently waited for a year for this day to come again. November 9th was the day that the Euskalgym, the biggest gymnastics event of the year, was to be held. Some of the best gymnasts in the world mix with beginners to show everybody beauty in motion. The environment is amazing and the moves breathtaking. Some of the girls there even won medals in London 2012. Last year I joined the photo team a little late in the game, but this year I was all in. Armed with a press pass and an assistant I sat next to the TV camera and got ready to shoot and shoot and then shoot some more. 

Special thanks to David, Roberto, and Sabrina for all your help in making this happen.

These are some of my favorites. Hope you enjoy them:
