Rachael Short in her Carmel cottage.
This week's cover story was a profile on Rachael Short recovering from a tragic car accident last October in Big Sur.
The story is really good and pretty heavy, but really shows off her amazing spirit amid this whole thing.
In the local photography scene, Rachael is top notch. Her work is amazing and she's the nicest person around and a friend of mine.
Here is a gallery of an afternoon spent with her that I shot for the paper.

Above is a quick portrait I did of my friend—and very talent artist—Natalie McKean.
Below is a quick video I shot after a cup of coffee I made. It was edited it Final Cut Express, which I finally played around with enough to learn most of it. Booya.

Last night, my friends from San Diego, The Silent Comedy, played in Monterey.
We were chatting outside before their set and my buddy Josh told me the had a new sponsor and needed a photo of them with the product somewhere on the tour. I had all my lights and camera from having a photo assignment earlier that day and so we made a photo with the band and them showing off Virginia moonshine.
Nikon D300 with a 17-55 f/2.8. (ISO 800, f/4) triggering a Nikon SB-800 through a 32" Westcott white umbrella.
I converted one to black-and-white in Photoshop for a different-looking image.

I found out that I got featured on the front page of SportsShooter.com!
This is huge for me and my work as I've been a member there for a few years and it is one of my biggest resources for me as professional photographer. SS.com is home to some of my mentors in the business and has advice on the forums from photogs in the AP, USA Today and many of the large dailies and magazines whose work I follow constantly.
Here's the full gallery of images I posted: http://www.sportsshooter.com/members.html?id=7571
I still have a ways to go, but thanks for all the support.
