Firearms Product Shoot

On Saturday September 19th I did a product shoot in San Diego with my good friend and fellow photographer, Joe Hamilton. We shot for a company named JD Machine Tech. They specialize in the making of colt m4 carbine a specialized gun. They supply military personnel, police departments and other groups in need of this specialized weapon. The pictures we took start with a block of metal that is transformed in to a gun. This was a very interesting shoot for Joe and I as we learned quite a bit on guns and how they are distributed and also how they are controlled by the government.
Since Obama has begun to enforce the non sale of ammunition and guns, JD tells us that his production has gone way up. (read more about this on this site) (on gun control)
I guess people are afraid they won't be able to get amo or guns again.

9/11 Memorial in Malibu, Pepperdine

9/11 Memorial in Malibu, Pepperdine

I have been driving these flags a couple times today and finally thought to take some photos. They've been working on the memorial for days, close to 3,000 American flags placed in a precise grid on the vast, velvety lawn of Pepperdine University in Malibu. That's one for each victim of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, the day life as we know it changed forever.

Just think about what you where doing on Setp. 11 2001.

Paddle Out - Dusty Peak

Malibu lost one of it's most revered residents, Dusty Peak. He was also my best friend, Skylar Peak's father. Dusty was loved by everyone in Malibu which was demonstrated by the paddle out we held in his honor on Point Dume. It was quite a turn out with over 300 people paddling out and showing there love for Dusty. This private beach, Dusty's surfing spot, has never seen so many people.

I wanted to share this special moment with all of you through the photos I was able to take. But the photos can not capture the emotions that were on this beach this day honoring Dusty.
We made special t-shirts for the paddle out and they are still available to purchase with all proceeds going to Heal the Bay. Dusty supported this foundation because he felt it was important to keep our waters clean.
