Earlier this year we had the wonderful opportunity to photograph some custom stock photography and staff headshots for Small Potatoes Catering and Events. It was really a fun time going over there and setting up for some food shoots as well as their amazing chef at work! We love getting to go and photograph people doing what they love, that’s the power […]
In case you didn’t fly Emirates Air last month, you might not have seen the May 2013 issue of Open Skies Magazine which featured one of our photos on the cover for a piece entitled Pinball Wizards starting on page 46. As you might know if you’re a reader of our blog, we’ve been seeing pinball trending in popularity and this is yet another article supporting […]

The President gave a passionate speech which resulted in some enthusiastic crowd members to shout out “I love you” with the President responding with “I love you too”. Chris Cornell of Soundgarden was there […]
We photographed chef Aaron London of Ubuntu for the cover of Smart Meetings magazine last year and got to try out some food there as well which was a treat!

Last night we were happy to donate our services as part of our Social Photography program to the MDA of San Francisco. MDA has a camp that the kids go to that’s something they look forward to each year, and the research into Muscular Dystrophy has been an ongoing battle. To help keep this research going, and to help the kids affected by MD, it’s important for those […]
