if gumby was a super-hot girl, he would probably be kimberly snyder

i get a little de-motivated sometimes when i see somebody effortlessly do something that i know is crazy hard – but when i look at kimberly snyder do yoga it’s the exact opposite.  i’ve seen kimberly do yoga a few times, and i know the poses she does are crazy hard to do, but she makes them look so tranquil and smooth that it’s really inspiring and motivating.  like, it really makes me want to take time out of my day and do yoga.  most days, i get so busy and caught up in photography that my personal hygiene takes a hit, my fingernails get long and i forget to eat and blah blah… basically what i’m saying is that kimberly makes me want to find time that i don’t have and do something good for my skateboard-battered/horribly nourished body.  and speaking of nourishment, if you want to find out what kind of fuel she burns in her jet-fighter-like body, she shares her knowledge as a certified clinical nutritionalist in a health-and-beauty blog at kimberlysnyder.net.  somethin tells me that my daily dose of those extra dark “le petit ecolier” cookies (is anybody else addicted to these things like i am?) are scarce found on the pages.  but some tasty, less artery clogging options like cyan pepper immunity tea, kimberly’s raw pecan love pie, and banana soft serve with raw fudge sauce are all over that sucker.  plus there’s tips on how to keep your skin, nails, hair and pretty much your whole body healthy.  check it out.

you know when bugs bunny took a wrong turn at albuquerque and ended up in the south pole with the abominable snowman guy?  well samantha probably felt the same way.  she was brand new to the city and got lost right out of the subway.  it was pretty cold out – like 36 and raining.  it wasn’t CRAZY cold to me, but it was cold enough.  turns out that samantha is from a really warm part of australia and she had never felt weather that cold in her life (36 is 2.2 celsius, for all of you metric system people.  i wish america would get on that metric system business soon.  when i was a kid, my teachers would always tell us that we’d be using the metric system when i was an adult.  whatever happened to that jive?).  the  poor girl was freezing so we took her inside, wrapped my puffy jacket around her and sat her next to the heater.  i think she was basically freezing throughout the whole shoot, but she never complained and made freezing look pretty.

anna anna bo banna

you know how sometimes you’re like, “that girl is mega hot, but her boy’s a little duchey” almost like you’re disappointed – but in reality if her boy was as hot as her you’d be a little pissed that they’re both hot.  well anna’s boy is just as hot as her and it almost makes you throw up a little because you’re like, “come on, man – that junk ain’t fair.”  i got some shots of her boy on the choppin block.  they’ll be up soon…

krissy drier in the rain

so we’re up on the roof taking shots in the rain.  it’s cold and dreary but everything looks awesome.  after i think we got the goods and before she’s about to freeze to death in that itty bitty dress, i call it a wrap.  we head back to the door and pull it.  nope.  pull it again – notta.  that sucker was locked up tight.  so here we are on the roof, it’s cold, raining and krissy is nearly naked.  i spot some ladies smoking way over on the roof of the building next to us and i’m yelling over to them, “hey!  help!  we’re locked on the roof!!” and they don’t budge.  they yell something back, but i couldn’t hear em.  i try to get them to come over to me, but they just wave their hands and go back inside.  so i hand over my umbrella and camera and start climbing down the rusty fire escape.  i make it all the way to the bottom and go back through the front door and take the elevator back up.  but by the time i got there, the nice ladies had come to krissy’s rescue.  thanks, nice ladies.

erin

i was lurking through my archives and came across these shots of my friend erin.   erin came into town last year for a bit and we ended up shooting around my hood.  i couldn’t’ve taken a bad picture of erin if i tried.

supermodel darla baker

for the modelinia.com vid, we shot charlotte ronson’s clothes on the lovely darla baker.  here’s a sneak peek at a couple of the shots i took.  darla was crazy easy to work with.  the pictures are rad, but it wasn’t really anything i did.  ray charles on a pogo-stick could’ve taken a picture of her and it would have been friggin awesome.
