Moto2 World Champion Stegan Bradl Testing at Laguna Seca.

On Monday, I went out to Laguna Seca on a tip that 2011 Moto2 World Champion and current MotoGP rookie Stefan Bradl was riding at the Monterey circuit.

My source was right and I chatted with him and his manager for a bit, which turned sent to the editor and turned around a story for Cycle World magazine.

Bradl is 24 and a nice guy. Really easy going and we chatted about the track and how he had only known it from a video game, but wanted to prepare for the US Grand Prix in July.

The German Bradl is currently the top rookie in seventh place in the 2012 MotoGP world championship, right behind Italy's Valentino Rossi. He will probably be rookie-of-the-year riding for LCR Honda.

On Saturday, I shot some portraits for a friend's business and here are some outtakes of my friend Howard Anderson.

Howard is a funny guy and makes for good faces.

Below was my lighting setup and background for the photos. Shot on my iPhone.

Happy Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day mom.

I always tells people, when asked about my cooking skills, where I got them from and it's from both of my parents, but things like making gnocchi from scratch and my favorite Italian cookies and such, I got from my mom.

Growing up, I got an appreciation for good teachers and reading lots of books from her and even writing.

Thanks mom for all the help.
