Chinelos: Seattle Seahawk Style
Chinelos are a kind of traditional costumed dancer which is popular in the Mexican state of Morelos, parts of the State of Mexico and the Federal District of Mexico City, especially the boroughs of Milpa Alta and Xochimilco. The tradition arose from the blending of indigenous and Catholic traditions, most notably Carnival. #seahawkssendoff #weare12 #chinelos #seattle #igers_seattle #gohawks

Happy 2015 everyone.
I rang the new year with a hot date with my wife! :) Before that, I got to interview and shoot the @commonkings crew; @matai45 @junyerking @uncle_lui @j_romet with the homie @pelepels.
Look out for their album in February, and my article with them on Huffington Post next week. It's a good one with some funnies, serious talk, and who they think will win this upcoming Super Bowl (ahem Seahawks).
While in Los Angeles for a gig, I was able to get out for an hour and shoot street. The Melrose District didn't disappoint. I got to meet some awesome people and there wasn't any hesitation when I asked to take their portraits. Big up LA.
Hope y'all are all well.
The Green: Ways & Means 3/3
I interviewed the award winning Hawaiian reggae band The Green @thegreen808 last weekend for Huffington Post.
If you love Hawaii, it's music, and/or The Green, you should check it out. Plus @pahliewalnuts and I shot the concert! Big thanks to @supahtroopah (pictured here) @luckyjp @kaiksbear for the chance to talk story.
The link to the article is in my profile. #TheGreen808 #Grryo #TheCollisionTour
I had the opportunity to shoot a youth boxing training session at Aztec Gym before they went out and defended their belts. There were 4 kids who had at least a belt or two. Watching theses kids talk about and be about boxing was truly interesting. In the squared circle they were gladiators. Outside they were normal 3rd and 4th graders who were interested in seeing their photos and talking about girls and talking about video games and schoolwork.
Parents, what extracurricular activities do you place your kids in? What do you see as most beneficial for them?
What up IG peoples! Hope y'all are well. Saw this beauty of a K9 and had to take it's photo. This is a Thai Ridgeback. I had one back in the day and he was one of the best dogs I've had.
What breed of dog is your fave? And why? Ready, set, go!
