RIP Dennis Stock

One of my favorite photographers of all time passed away. Dennis Stock made some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. Armed with a small 35mm film camera and some black and white film he continues to inspire street and music photographers around the world. Thank you for the pictures!!

Blasto from the Pasto!!


Here is a pic from the archives. Its me circa 1992 when I was rocking pretty hard at shows, being a bum and taking pictures. I've slowed down with age, but my ideals and artistic vision have remained true to the original concept. Keep it rugged, raw and real.

Stick 'em Up


The Brawling Cucarachas project is underway. It will take me the whole year to make it come to life. Here is a small example image for you to enjoy.

FUNAKI, Endorsed by Joker


Joker stopped by today to ask if I had some coffee brewing. Lucky for him I did and it was piping hot. I shot a few frames for him to endorse the studio.

Punching bag


I am working on a series of images for a pictorial from various influences. I don't want to go too much into detail so you all can check it out when the finished product is done. This is one of the first of the object portraits that will accompany the people portraits. I call it "The Punching bag"

I shot this self portrait while shooting for a personal project in a closed jail. I wore Estevan Oriol's "Bars" T-shirt for inspiration.



I have a new project in the works. I will be dealing with some interesting themes and adding a twist to street portraits. I hope to put it in a book form. Here are some of the images influencing this project.
