Photo Shoot Flash Back 1

Recently I’ve been going through all my old photos and picking out photos of people that I’ve taken pictures of. Some of these people may not have received a copy of said photos so better late than never right? Anyway over the years, I’ve had lots of photo shoots and almost all of them back then were done with an assistant. That means there’s often photos taken that show the behind the scenes action. As I’m still trying to get back into the flow of updating the blog regularly, it’ll be nice to post some of these pictures and if possible show how a shot came together. So stay tuned…

First off is a shot from my Princess in the Woods project.

Busy

It’s been an extremely busy week and the blog was offline without my knowledge until just right now. This week is the GDTV Miss Bikini 2015 contest and I’ve been busy with that. Expect an update soon though. For now enjoy these:

Back… again…

Well only one day after bringing back the blog the server’s hard drive decided to call it quits. So I had to prepare a new drive to replace the dying drive and finally tonight I got everything back up again. Still need to restore some other things but everything else should be back to normal. With that said, I plan to have at least one new post up this weekend. So stay tuned!

Till next time…

Back in the Game

It’s been years but I’ve decided to restart the blog. Originally, I was going to write my own blog using Django but … well I’m lazy. But why did I take down the old blog?!¬†Well the answer is simple, I’m an idiot. At the time the server was still running a 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04 from the days when the server was running off an Intel Pentium 3 processor with a ungodly 320MB of RAM. In other words, it was very old and outdated, which meant it couldn’t utilize the new hardware it was running on.

So I decided to start from scratch, full format with a clean new install of Debian 7 and attempt to write my own blogging system in Django. Unfortunately, my brilliant self decided that I had copied everything off the old install that I would need without double checking first. You know, that thing that most intelligent people would do when doing something as destructive as this. That and actually have a backup solution in place. Anyway, long story short I fucked up and lost the old blog when I sudo rm -rf / the sucker.

I’ve taken a rather long hiatus from photography since then. It’s about time to get back into photography and enjoy doing what I love. With that the blog is back and I will be posting regularly again.

Till next time…
