Facebook | Twitter | Youtube | Blog Last week, I expressed my opinion on subcontracting post work out. This past week has once again been slammed to the point that I wish I had someone I trusted enough to help ease the load. I’ve shot and edited for a combined time of just under 100 hours. Its now Sunday and I’m no where near finished with edits. I’m starting to think I’m going to need a new chair as my ass has most definitely made a groove in the chair. I’ve briefly considered moving my office to the other room thinking it might offer a change of scenery and maybe a little more comfort as its carpeted. However, it seemed like it would take too much time so I just let that idea fall to the cold, hard floor of my boring office. I’m shooting again Tuesday or Wednesday and then, flying out to Charlotte, NC for a shoot. How do I wish I spent the past week? Not any other way. Thank you! If I wasn’t burdened by the need for sleep and food, I'd have way more time! With the workload this week, I wasn’t able to put something elaborate together. However, I really like the image that I ended up using. Director Troy Heard has been unafraid to make ridiculous faces for me since the very first time he was in front of my camera in September of 2012. This time I was shooting promo work for a parady show titled Pawn Shop Live. A comedic take on the characters of the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop here in Las Vegas. You better know them from History Channel’s Pawn Stars. Troy is directing and, of course, that means another chance for me to capture one of his faces. I swear, he gives me 100% each time. So much so that I fear one day he’ll cramp his face and have to go to the ER! The background you see in the shot has seen more than a few composites but never saw the light of day until now. It just didn’t fit with anything I tried, until this shot. My first instinct was to “zombie” him up. But, after a little thought, I decided to not mask that face but rather to let it shine! So, thanks again, Troy, for not being afraid of the lens! I promise, one day I’ll take a photo of you that doesn’t involve facial contortions and clear views of your uvula. Moving right along, some of you know, but most of you have no idea, that I’m utterly alone in my house right now and have been for most of November and now most of December. My photo-critiquing, body-heat blast-furnace, bed-hogging, candy-stashing, seafood-hating, Bob Villa with a vagina, and less facial hair of a girlfriend, Joyce, is up north. I’ve seen her for all of 5 days in the past 6 weeks. I’m thankful for the amount of work I have because, if it wasn’t for that work, I’d probably be rocking back and forth singing Christmas songs in the corner in my pajamas. Its just too quiet here! The bed is so cold at night that when I need to get up in the morning, I simply put the alarm on the nightstand on the other side of the bed. When the alarm goes off, I have to slide over to the other side to turn it off. The other side is SO cold that I’m instantly awake. I’d say it's like laying naked on a frozen lake! Over the past 6 weeks, my eating habits have gone to shit. I just don’t have the energy to cook some big, fancy meal for just me. I think I hit an all time low the other night when I cut up a hotdog and threw it in with some canned tomato sauce. The only thing that saved the meal from being really sad was that I used tri-colored pasta. It fancied it up just enough to hold onto my self-respect! Although, my lack of culinary creativity may have hit an all time low, my brother, Cory’s, seemed to reach new heights. I’m here eating my sad meal in my cold, dark house and he sends me a message with this bull shit. I imagine him saying this in a fancy, Italian accent: "I made a ricotta-, fontina-, asiago-, and parmesan-cheese stuffed chicken breasts, wrapped in pancetta, with a savory side of garlic mashed potatoes and fresh green beans." hotdog was a Hebrew National, that should account for something. Those things aren’t cheap! He does lose points for sending me a crappy cell phone picture of his meal. Shit, he didn’t even add an instagram filter to it! Friend and photographer, Eric Ortiz, came over the other day. He walked into a frigid house, void of nearly all light. "Why is it so creepy in here?" he mutters as he goes to find a light. I’ve spent the past week in my office and only my office. I make about 2 trips to the kitchen a day and one to the bedroom to sleep. If I had a bed in my office, I’d sleep in there to save time. Okay. So now I’m making myself out to be some sort of strange hermit. It’s just been a busy week. The house is so cold because I feel it is a waste to heat it all. I use a space heater in the room I'm in and let the rest of the house find its natural balance with the exterior temperature. That just so happens to be pretty damn cold. I awoke the other morning after sleeping in full winter attire. I said to myself, “There's cold but, this is a bit ridiculous." The thermostat was buried past 50. I couldn't tell what the temp really was but I’d be willing to bet it was way below 50. I didn’t even have to refrigerate the soda that was sitting out. Frosty cold from the counter! It just makes me laugh! No matter how odd this past few weeks have been, I’ve still managed to shower and dress like a normal human being. I’m not going off the deep end just yet! Soon I’ll be off to California to spend christmas with my brother and his family. It should be a fantastic time. I may even leave my gear at home...Okay, I probably won’t but it was worth a momentary thought! Until next week...
