After viewing some of my photos from the city, a client approached me seeking a photo package of San Francisco. The images are for a travel piece in a European publication. They didn't want me to shoot a travel piece, yet go through my archives and make an edit showing the people and architecture of San Francisco, as I saw it while working as a documenatry photographer. This is what I put together.
Autumn Moon Festival, Chinatown
St. Mary's Cathedral
Dia de los Muertos, Mission District
Folsom Street Fair, SOMA District
Pillow Fight, Ferry Building
Bluegrass Festival, Golden Gate Park
Red Bull Soap Box Derby, Dolores Park
Luv Fest, Downtown
May Day, Civic Center

Went out to climb in the East Bay Sunday May 10th, 2009. Just went out to chill with my good friend Jeremy and took the camera along. He's one of the sickest climbers I have had the pleasure to witness and he's always pushing me to new limits on the wall. This summer, since I am staying in California I am going to split my time between climbing in the sierras and working weekends in the bay area. Recently I have become more focussed on shooting climbing and surfing and I think it's about time to make it happen. Nothing is better then escaping the city life to enjoy natures beauty in it's essence. It's a feeling that I have held onto since childhood and one that I will never let go of. When all else fails, go climb a rock!
