Adventures With Koen – The 1st Year

Leave a comment

Just published our book ‘Adventures With Koen: the 1st year’ on Blurb. Took me awhile to figure out how to work with the Blurb software, but it’s all good now. We’re glad to have collaborated with Coral and Scott, and have their photos from the birth and with their family. It feels good to push the Publish button after around 16 months of photography and designing the book. And – it gets me to thinking that I should be doing books of some of our other projects.

Here’s a link to the 1st 15 pages of the book¬† –¬† http://www.blurb.com/books/1444094

* Portraits of Doctors and Kids

We had a great time doing the photography for UCSF’s AIDS Research Institute’s 2008 annual report these past 5-6 weeks – some challenging photo shoots where we had 10 – 15 minutes at most to come up with a strong portrait, but it all worked out. We’ll be able to show some of the portraits once the annual report is published in June.

Last Saturday, we showed a more complete version of the ‘Bubbles in the Fishtank’ multi-media project at the Otis Elementary School’s Spring Fling fundraiser, and happy to say, it was a great success – as was the fundraiser. Here’s 4 more portraits from the project —

* A Great Night – Showing the Fundraising Multi-Media Project

Leave a comment

We’ve been meaning to start a blog for awhile now, so here it goes. Great time we had last Thursday night at our son Bryce’s Art Auction at his Otis Elementary School, in Alameda. To help raise funds for the school’s art program because of potential budget cuts, we’ve teamed up with 2 other parents, Jeannette Copperwaite and Ani Dimusheva, to create ‘Bubbles in the Fishtank’ — a multi-media presentation of Bryce’s 2nd grade classmates using our portraits and candids of them, the kids’s artwork, interviews of the kids and their teacher Mrs. Scriven, and video. It feels great to be doing a project of value to the community we live in. We’ll be showing a more in-depth presentation at another fundraiser on May 10th.

We’ve been looking to do a documentary photography project where we can shoot with b&w film, and to spend some time in the darkroom where we can produce beautiful prints. To see more of the project: go to the Client Access section on our web site, the password is: sbsh10, and then click on Gallery.
