To kick off the new year, we all gathered at joe's (far right avove) house to dance and drink and wear bright colors with glitter and spandex. we took a lot of pictures and i edited them to look like pumped up cross-processed holga photos. to see the full size photos plus the rest of the photos taken that night, visit ryan burke photography and click on "NEON PARTY 2010."

Rooftops, bracelets and engagements


Yesterday I was in LA doing a quick rooftops shoot with Kasiz Szarek (above). We had never shot together and always meant to but she had gone to Smile Bright earlier and the day and was in too much pain to do much of a shoot. The pictures that we got were great but I look forward to working on something more conceptual with her in the future.

Today I photographed product for Michael David (Mishka Piaf); he designs fashion accessories - necklaces, bracelets, headbands, etc. It was a lot of fun and now I have a lot of editing work to do from both shoots to keep me busy until Saturday when I do another shoot for Micheal and Sunday when I have an engagement shoot followed by a fashion shoot up in LA.

Such a busy week! This year is off to a very productive start. :)

Tomorrow i'm in LA again. Wednesday as well - first shoot of the new year with Kasia Szarek! Thursday I have a product photography shoot with Michael David. Friday is a Neon party, Saturday, more pictures with Michael David and Sunday is reserved for a developing shoot with Jared Allred and some other friends. It's finally become a busy start to the new year and I'm looking forward to all the upcoming projects.

Welcome Baby Ryan...

I had the most fun last night photographing another Persian party. This time it was a baby shower for Jana and Heydar's incoming baby Ryan. I'm listening to the new Album Leaf and reviewing the pictures so I thought I'd share some. The girl to the right was especially pretty.
