Hovering over our studio yesterday.
National Pancake Day…..who knew????
Chocolate chip and blueberry by the way……..
We had a client meeting this morning at Lux in downtown Phoenix. Fun being showered with the “skin” of the coffee beans. Still finding them in my hair. Made for a cool image.
Longtime client SkyMall contacted us to shoot the Hawaiian Jellys that were used on this cover for Delta Airlines. We shot the shoes and they were dropped into this tropical background. Maybe you’ve seen it in your travels??
Camerawerks recently had the privilege of working on the 2013 Annual Report for Arizona Community Foundation. A special thanks goes out to Jane Bock at 12below design for her amazing design and The ACF Communication Team for putting us in touch with some really amazing people working in our Community. Here are a few of the images we photographed and a little info about these amazing people.
Amy and Paul Blavin established the Wave Foundation:
“Intent on encouraging foster youth to succeed and inspiring supporters to get involved, the Blavins know that youth aging out of foster care can thrive.” (pg 10-11)
Jodi Padgett,Professional Advisor:
“If variety is the spice of life, Jodi Padgett is someone who finds plenty of zest. From the vantage point of her busy office in Prescott, or her small ranch in nearby Skull Valley, Jodi maintains balance in her life with passions that include advising clients, growing grapes and devoting time to favorite causes.” (pg 14-15)
QU Scholarship Fund: Joey Thybo, Kevin Axx, Shel-Don Legarreta, Stacey Jay Cavaliere and Mike Gorman (not pictured). (pg 12-13)
“With a combination of monetary awards and mentoring, the QU Scholarship Fund promotes scholastic achievement among Arizona LGBTQ youth, and scholarships have already been awarded.”

Just got back from a trip to Hermosillo Mexico where I spent an afternoon exploring the back streets and parks. I always see a lot of stray dogs in Mexico and rarely see any that are being taken care of. I came across one of the Lucky dogs in Mexico. This puppy was best friends with a Homeless man from Hermosillo. He was very kind and allowed me to photograph his beautiful dog who gets to ride in a luxury shopping cart and eat like a King. Its always amazing to see how much we need animals and they need us. Please give some love to your animals everyday.
Continuation of my series of urban infrastructure and landscapes. This drive-in closed about 2.5 years ago. Land owners and theatre owner couldn’t come to terms on a new lease. I only went once in the 30 years I’ve lived here. Wish I could remember which movies I saw. I do remember they were still using the speakers that you hung over your car window. Will definitely head back over there soon to create more images.
One of my favorite things to do while in unfamiliar places is to photograph the streets and explore. I was recently in Hermosillo,Mexico for my TEOE show and had a couple days to just explore. I found myself walking through some back streets with some friends when we happened upon a business were Coyotas were being prepared. We were invited in and allowed to photograph the process. I am always amazed how friendly everyone is in other countries. Also these Coyotas are amazing!
The Coyotas are a popular type of Mexican sugar cookie. The first recipes for them date back to the 19th century and coyotas are frequently thought to originate in a region of Mexico known as Sinaloa. Contemporary recipes for coyotas can often be found throughout Mexico and the southwestern United States. The typical batch of coyotas yields cookies that are larger and flatter than other kinds of sugar cookies and they are traditionally flavored with brown, rather than white granulated, sugar.

I took a ride out to Goodyear to check out the old Phoenix Trotting Park. I’ve always been fascinated by this site. There are some interesting YouTube videos from crazy people who have ventured inside. Here are a couple https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cQrSrv-KKE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-C53gUXcIXw Also, check out the wikipedia page for the brief history of this unique structure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_Trotting_Park
