Paparazzo Trial Starts Today

As many of you know, John Hildebrand and Skylar Peak were charged with battery following an incident of assault on the beach in the summer of 2008. The case has been held up in court for nearly two years now. When the incident happened in June of 2008, John and Skylar had their faces blasted all over the world as the media painted a picture of angry surfers supporting Matthew McConaughey vs. some paparazzi photographers. It was not until August when Skylar and John were charged with charged with battery for the alleged incident. Funny how the group of resident beach goers including John and Skylar, politely asking that paparazzi's to leave on more than one occasion, have a knife pulled on them and what follows is a few edited videos posted all of the world showing John and Skylar "attacking" a paparazzi. None of the videos show the event in its entirety and some news coverage mixed footage from events of the 22nd and some footage from the following week when the same group of paparazzi got in a scuffle with a different group of beach goers. This is pure nonsense and the powers that be should be embarrassed to have prosecuted Skylar and John.

The videos did not show a knife being pulled on Hildebrand prior to the physical conflict, but it did show the baton used in the scuffle. It does not show the death threats made via vm and online, cars racing across PCH, or the blatant rudeness and disregard of the law by some of the most hated cameramen that plague the planet daily by harassing celebrities and individuals across the world.
This will all come out in court now....

While the story in the media is still far from the truth, John and Skylar would really like it if you can come to their trial and support them.  Spread the word...

Model: Kelley Naylor

Model: Kelley Naylor

The  other day my friend's sister called me and said she really wanted to get into modeling but was super nervous and didn't know where to start.
She was approached by a swimsuit company that wanted her to model for their line but they wanted simple test photos of her sent to them that day.
Kelley called me and asked if I could meet with her and help her out.  We met at her house to pick out some swimsuits and talk a little about modeling.  She was super nervous because she has never done this kind of work before.  We started off just doing some really simple "polaroid" style shots to shoot the swimsuit line and also to get Kelley comfortable moving in front of the camera.

Kelley did so great and we ended up getting some really great shots, which ended up getting her the job with the swimsuit line. 
She was so easy to work with, she took direction great and loved modeling.  By the end of the shoot she wanted to keep going. She can hardly wait to shoot again. 

Kelley's look is the "full on" little California girl.  Her eyes popped in the camera and really pull you in.  She has a perfect swimsuit body.

Its fun working with new talent because they bring so much excitement  to the shoot, with a whole new kind of energy. 



More shoots to come with Kelley so stay tune as I help her build a solid print portfolio.
