John Stamos text me this photo a few weeks ago. I had sent it to him decades back. I shot this when I was in High School with one of those plastic pocket 35mm film cameras. Probably had it developed at the K-Mart his mom used to go to. John would have auditions in Hollywood, and I would sometimes go along to hang out. On this particular day I remember we did not have enough money to get into Universal Studios. John Stamos and I used to like to watch the stunt show (because we were nerdy that way). At this time there was a huge ivy covered hill in front of Universal Studios (just above one of the parking lots) with a medium size chain link fence on top. Yeah you guessed it. Like most high schoolers we had a great time disrespecting authority.

As a photographer I try to surround myself with people who know more than me.

Im a drummer who used to do photography a long time ago. In the last ten years or so I have taken an interest in photography again. If you are getting back into photography, or just starting I assure you that classes and lectures will be a fun and interesting pursuit. Wonderful things happen when a room full of photographers (with varied skill sets) get together. And of course the worse photographer gets the most benefit.
