So This Is a Bit Late…

So This Is a Bit Late…

One of the things I love about what I do is being able to learn about new people, things, music, etc.  Last month I was introduced to Elbow, an English band that sells out stadiums in Europe, but plays venues like the Wiltern here in the States. Guy Garvey, the lead singer, was charismatic as […] more…

Rad People: Ken Rolow

Rad People: Ken Rolow

Ken is another of the many great people working at Comics, Toons N’ Toys in Tustin.   In 2010, I wasn’t able to get to Comic-Con for the first time in 12 years and Ken was awesome enough to go out of his way to hit the Tr!ckster storefront to pick up the sketchbook they […] more…
Rad People: Drew Struzan

Rad People: Drew Struzan

  This kind of falls out of my previous style for Rad People, but this was a bucket list assignment for me.  I had the absolute pleasure of meeting and then photographing  the artist Drew Struzan, who’s mainly know for his work on movie posters.  The LA and OC Registers were doing a feature on […] more…
Rad People: John Ha

Rad People: John Ha

Another person from my favorite comic book store is John Ha. I think he has to be one of the all-around happiest people I know.  When I see him, he’s always smiling and is having fun in the store. When he’s not at Comics, Toons & Toys, he’s either at his other job (which escapes […] more…
Burgerama 2014

Burgerama 2014

I was fortunate enough to shoot Burgerama this past weekend and discover a few new bands in the process.  I think the best thing about festivals like this is the discovery.  My favorites had to be Jessica Hernandez and the Deltas and Allah-Las, but really most everyone I saw was great to shoot. Melissa Brooks […] more…
Rad People: Sara Seymour

Rad People: Sara Seymour

Sara’s had been at Comics for quite some time but now she’s working full time for the Tustin Library I believe. I think she’s also been the driving force behind the store’s VAST manga section.  I don’t know of any other comic book store (or even bookstore) that has a section this big. Through her, […] more…
Young the Giant at the Hollywood Palladium

Young the Giant at the Hollywood Palladium

I was fortunate enough to shoot the Young the Giant Show Friday night at the Hollywood Palladium for the OC Register.  Which they sold out.  If you remember, I shot one of their earliest shows at the Heritage Park Community Center a little more than nine years ago.  These guys have definitely come a long […] more…
Sometimes Turning Around and Heading Home is the Thing To Do

Sometimes Turning Around and Heading Home is the Thing To Do

I was driving to Huntington Beach to cover the Edison vs Marina High School boys soccer game when I got a call. “Hey Miguel, it’s Michele (Cardon). Are you already on your way to the soccer game? “Yeah, but I’m not that far out.” “Would you be able to shoot something in Koreatown instead for […] more…
Rad People: Michael Harper

Rad People: Michael Harper

I’ve lost track of how many times Michael Harper has steered me to a good comic.  He’s been there for several years and we seem to have similar tastes in titles. He’s also a great person to go to when I haven’t been following a title (like Captain America while Ed Brubaker was working on […] more…
I Started This Last Summer, First of ??? Rad People: Matt Powers

I Started This Last Summer, First of ??? Rad People: Matt Powers

Last summer I started shooting people I know for a personal project, I just set up some Duvetine and let people pose in front of it.   The first time I did this was for the Irvine World News’ All-City Girls Basketball years back and had so much fun, I thought I’d do it again, […] more…
I Don’t Know What to Say…

I Don’t Know What to Say…

I was at a regional volleyball playoff match when one of the other photographers there told me Paul Walker had died.   I met him at a press junked in 2003 for “2Fast2Furious” and had about 10 minutes to get some pictures of him for the OC Register.  He was pretty patient with me, I […] more…
The Opposite of Yesterday…

The Opposite of Yesterday…

This was from last Friday’s playoff game between Los Alamitos and Fullerton Union.   As much as I like shooting the joy of a team winning a game, there is something to images like this.       more…
Champions

Champions

Volleyball is probably the hardest sport for me to shoot, so shooting the CIF Championships Saturday between Sage Hill and Crean Lutheran was a bit stressful.   I’m glad there was such great jubilation at the end.   more…
Frank Romero for the Orange County Register

Frank Romero for the Orange County Register

I was asked by Kari Hall to shoot artist Frank Romero at his Lincoln Heights studio for a story on the retrospective of his work at the Muckenthaler in Fullerton (it ran this past weekend).   He was really nice and even asked me to join him for tamales at Mom’s Tamales down the street. […] more…

Something I Noticed…

I was going through photos recently and saw these shots were kind of similar graphically.   Look at the lines and hand position in relation to the racquet.  Even the tennis ball in relation to the spotlight.   more…

Shoot and Scoot

Shoot and Scoot

I had to shoot two girls tennis playoff matches in Newport Beach not too long ago.  Corona del Mar was playing against La Quinta and Newport Harbor was taking on Northwood.  The two started at the same time and fortunately they weren’t too far apart. Even with all the scrambling, I feel like I managed […] more…
