Congrats to Ian and Alyssa on their new business venture called Future’s Past. A media/news company, photo, video, and podcast production agency to help people and brands take off, like a spaceship.
Future’s Past hosted a family and friends event yesterday to introduce their new space located in Barrio Logan. It was a pleasure seeing two of my friends living out their dreams, great times and great vibes. Best of luck to you two!
Food Porn is less than a few weeks out and I’m getting super excited about it. I don’t have enough men in the show and I’m fortunate to have some male friends (and strangers) who are willing to volunteer to help. Unfortunately I can’t shoot them all, so I had to shoot two very close friends of mine who really wanted to be in the show too. I shot Still of Rottweiler Clothing and a member of Suav City, and also shot Gian aka Big Gee (I don’t have a teaser of Gee to show ya’ll).
Shot some Click Click photos of Stillo inside of Holy Matcha in North Park. Huge shout out to Holy Matcha by the way, they were very helpful with the food I used to shoot with. Thank you!
What’s up ya’ll!? I have the new Hanuit soft enamel pins available on the day of the show. Designed by Richie Moon, and if you like to purchase now and just pick up from me at the show to speed things up please feel free to do so. Only accepting Venmo transaction for now and cash/venmo on the day of the show will also work. See ya’ll August 2nd!
I had to get him for Food Porn Vol. 3 since I don’t have enough male model in the show. I wanted to shoot out of my comfort zone and did something a little different. Some of ya’ll have noticed my style and a dark contrast photo is something I just started to explore. Played with the lighting from the window and the shadows to create a photo with hard light and hard shadows. Come through August 2nd at 5&A Dime to see the Food Porn version of this photo.
As it get closer to the day, I’m getting nervous.
I made some veggie burgers today! I had no idea a Beyond party cost so much. $10 for two patties? Shiettt.
I finally tried Morning Glory y’all! It’s located in little Italy and I happened to go on a farmers market day. Busy but it’s okay! I found parking no problem. My luck with parking has been super great!
Shout out to my good friend Marla for waking up so early to have breakfast with me. She hates waking up early, she gets overwhelmed with crowds all the time and she tolerated all that, for me. Thansk! Lol.
I had my doubts about Morning Glory even though I know the people involved in the business but damn! They proved me wrong and I love that! I had doubts they’re Food was going to be good, thought it would be bland or tried to hard like most restaurants I’ve been to these days. But nah! Morning Glory was legit. It was about a 45 minute wait, the service was good made all the wait worth it.
We ordered the fluffy pancakes and the fancy toast with eggs and caviar. Forgot the name but I’ve never had caviar and I wanted to taste it on eggs. Eggs was cooked beautifully with a few textures to it. Creamy and flavorful, the caviar added the saltiness and with the bread it was a perfect balance. I hate pancakes cuz they’re mostly dry but the fluffy pancakes was so damn good! Cooked all the way through, with a bounce to it too!
I sat in the back of my SUV last night to catch the fire works but I failed. I couldn’t see anything. I was just at my cousin’s house where the Spring Valley fire works was just in his back yard, literally. I just didn’t want to deal with traffic so I headed home. Even though I didn’t get to see the fire works, it felt good to be at the home that I grew up in. I kept turning around to look at the house and reminisce on the times we were kids running around the yard. There I was at 35 back at the same house, hoping to raise a family and create new memories.
Anyways, I really love what I’ve done to the house, it’s sooo me.
Just some behind the scene photos of the music video shoot. They also took a boat out into the bay and jumped into the ocean, I wasn’t there for that one so you can catch a clip on their IG or wait for the video to drop.
Here’s a guy who just turned 40 and still has the energy of a 21 year old. In the club poppin bottles, a father of two, a husband, a family man, full time job, part time entrepreneur ( I can’t spell entrepreneur btw so I always have to google it lol), he can get no sleep and still function like a human being that slept for 8 hours. I don’t know how he does it! Sam Snee, my cousin and a huge supporter of my brand Hanuit, threw himself a huge all white party to celebrate his 40th birthday. I’m only 35 and I didn’t even turn up for my 35th birthday, I was in bed!
Here are some photos of Sam’s birthday party on a fucking boat taken by Stillo (Suav City) with a disposable camera. Sam even had a celebrity guest to perform at his party! Rossi Rock (Suav City) blessed the party with three tracks. Sam even dedicated the first song (That’s My Lady) to his wife Mary Knoll, cheesy but sooooo perfect. OH yeah, he even had a camera guy to film the who thing! Sam celebrated his 40th properly, I hope I have that much energy when I turn 40.
I had a whole blog post about my personal thoughts of my current situation but I deleted it all since it was just too personal. So I started over and just going to say that Dook and I went on a drive again to Mt. Laguna. It’s been a while for me, and I needed it. It was a short and and faster drive this time. We met up at a Starbucks in Lemon Grove and took the 8 east to Mt. Laguna, up to Pine Cafe and back down to the Haus.
Safe Light Labs recently hosted a show featuring all women photographers last Saturday. I missed it so I finally had the chance to stop by and check out some of the photos. Safe Light Labs is located in Downtown San Diego on 7th Ave. You can print your own photos in their dark room, develop your film, and even rent their photo studio for shoots. Check them out in Instagram!
The photos will be up till july 12th….ish. So catch it while you can!
I had lunch with my parents for Father’s day on Sunday and I had nothing to do after that. I hate being bored and unproductive so I went to Home Depot and bought some paint and spent about 6 hours painting the house with the help from my little cousin Devin.
I still need to buy more paint to finish the rest. The original plan was to spray the paint but that cost more and time to prep. I wanted to start small and paint what I can when I can. Looking good so far! I can’t wait to get home from work and paint some more!
By any means necessary.
Just wrapped up a session at my studio for Layers Project. Came all the way from LA.
Stillo rocking the new Rottweiler shirt in collaboration with YHG Pnut for this show tomorrow at Arts-Rec. I love that Snoop’s recreation there, old school.
