To all my clients, friends, and family: Jen, Zoe, Anna and I wish you a very happy holiday season and a great new year!

“Nacho Mountain” Film Premiere

We braved the snow storm on Saturday and went to the The Grand Theater in East Greenville, Pennsylvania, for the premiere of the independent feature, “Nacho Mountain.” Last year I helped out my friends on the film in the lighting department and also took a bunch of production stills. Some of the images can be seen on the back of the DVD and others can be seen at my previous Nacho Mountain Blog Post.
If you are an adult and really like fart humor, this is the film for you!


Here is an extended trailer:

“Nacho Mountain” Independent Feature Film

Last year I worked on an independent feature film in the Lehigh Valley with a bunch of my friends. I helped out on the lighting crew and also took a bunch of production stills. Most of the time I was playing with my camera trying to make the crew look as bad as possible.
It was produced, written, and directed by Mitch Csanadi of Dirt Productions.
It stars Christina Pazcoguin as Georgia Brown, Comedy Central Comedian, Jay Larson as Keefer and John Charles Hunt as the town’s mayor.
“Nacho Mountain” premieres this weekend at the Grand Theater in East Greenville, PA.
More information about the premeire and movie can be found at this Morning Call article: ‘Nacho Mountain,’ locally shot and written, premieres.
And you can learn more about the production company at: Dirt Productions
The following are some production stills and not so flattering shots of the cast and crew (click on each for a larger view):

December Lehigh Valley Tweetup at Bethelehem BrewWorks


This month’s Lehigh Valley Tweetup (Twitter Meet Up) was huge and a little different than the others.Β  Michael Andreano (@mandreano) organized a great event.Β  The Marines were there to collect Toys For Tots, we collected a ton of food for Trinity Soup Kitchen, and @LVTweetup members donated items for a charity auction and collected $380. A very successful gathering!!
I also set up a mobile portrait station and was taking head shots so people could use the images for their social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) at no charge.
This blog post is going to be huge since I took a ton of head shots along with the normal shots I usually take. Here are some images from the event:
