SmokeOut Fest

My buddy and fellow photographer, Trevor Traynor, and I  got the privilege to go down to The Smoke Out festival in San Bernadino last weekend with the super talented duo Los Rakas, back by the homies, The Park. Below is a video that Trevor put together with our footage from the awesome show and some stills i shot in between filming.  Que viva Los Rakas!

Collie Buddz

Collie Buddz and his cute self at the Smoke Out Festival. HA His
music makes your booty shake and his smile melts your heart! I'm
a fan. This was the 3rd time I've seen him perform and as usual, he
gave a great performance. His music is so infectious and  fun. I dare
you not to dance at one of his shows. It's impossible! On top of being
a talented musician, Collie Buddz is also really nice. His dressing
room was next door to Los Rakas' at the Smoke Out Fest so i got a
chance to meet him. He was so kind and humble. It's great to see
someone who's reached his level of success be so accessible to his fans.
Go ahead Mr. Collie Buddz!

with her art work last year after seeing her solo show 
at PUEBLO NUEVO. Do yourself a favor and check 
out her work HERE and if you can, pick up a piece. 
Cause' mark my words, this lady is going to blow up!
I was fortunate enough to get to shoot Renee for the
caliLOVE series. Below is one of the photos selected 
to be shown at the somARTS show.
