So I was recently asked on Facebook,
“(I really like your photography) but one thing I have always wondered? How do you make a living at this? …are they friends and relatives? I am only asking, because they seem so comfortable in front of the camera.”
As a follow up to last week’s posting, I have received the Carry Speed and Black Rapid camera straps. Here are my thoughts… ; ;
Another behind the scenes video. Probably the most requested model in my portfolio is Beth Cruz. Reggie Rucker’s client wanted to do a New Orleans style Fat Tuesday poster for there annual event Central Valley event. I think we NAILED IT Behind the scenes of Tresetti’s Fat Tuesday Poster from Luis Alcazar on Vimeo. […]
Nice behind the scenes video of the Lucky Fest Promo I shot. We photographed everything near the event location as the creative director needed stills of the street and venue then images of various actors and models so he could composite it all afterwards. After the dawn street session we erected a white backdrop in […]

R&B Artist (and I don’t use the word loosely) Prince BlkMagic Damons has updated his website with the photos from our Spring ’10 shoot at his recording studio and home. I really enjoy taking photos of people in their environment, doing what they do best. Prince kindly agreed to let me follow him around for […]

In preparation for my recent road trip to the Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion and then Las Vegas, I toyed with the idea of bringing my studio lights. They weren’t that heavy right?

But after considering the effort, security of the places I would be staying and practicality I opted for my speedlites (4 x 580EX II) instead.
