Tuga N˚II

Santiago, you have been so kind!

I'm not one for big cities, but Santiago's pretty cool. I've been using so much public transportation! Everyday it has been... walk 1/2 mile to the metro, then take the metro, then take the train or bus. It's exhausting, but it makes me feel like a badass. i'm lame.

The first real shoot I had in Santiago was Tuga's performance at this little circus in the city. Adam, Austin and I checked it out...

. . . it was awesome.

I want to put up more... but i can't give it all away! For more, you should ask me about buying a presale of the book and DVD that comes out April 10th. We need these presales because the school doesn't give us enough money to make our projects, so we have to raise majority of the money ourselves. Any support would be greatly appreciated!

Also, to get a taste of what the rest of the group is up to, check out the Chile Blog... I'm really excited, this group is so talented! i have a good feeling about our project :)

That's all for now, more to come soon!

do you realize...

instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
you realize that life goes fast
it's hard to make the good things last
you realize the sun doesn't go down
it's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round.

HEY! i'm in the southern hemisphere right now. . .


So i've left Valparaiso for Santiago to follow my stories. Emma, Austin, and I are working with the Federacion del Rodeo Chileno. We shoot our first rodeo this weekend!

Adam and I are also here to capture two of Tuga's performances... i can't wait! Not much shooting has gone on during the week, but the next few days are going to be intense.


so just a few...


Adam's interpritation of this italian restaraunt's rocket salad... i haven't laughed that hard in forever.

self portrait numero dos. . Valparaiso.

so happy to be here! Can't wait for what i'll discover next in Chile... hopefully a handsome cowboy? i won't hold my breath.

This is where i am.

This is one of the many murals painted around town.

This is one right outside the door to my hostel. I love it and i'm going to print it and take it and put it up next to my bed when i return to the states.

Did a short story on the elevator here. Just a taste...

Meet Carlita. She is the coolest 3-legged cat you'll ever encounter.

This is Emma and me after we ate a huge plate of fries topped with meat, onion and cheese.

I'm glad i'm a photographer, because words cannot express the way i feel.

I'm so lucky to be here.

Just a taste of Tuga...

So I met Tuga yesterday...

i like him.

a lot.
