So, we can now say that we are connected to Kevin Bacon by one degree! (for those of you that are familiar with the trivia game “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.”)  We recently had the privilage of photographing his and his brothers band, The Bacon Brothers. Michael Bacon, a well known composer for film and television, and Kevin started playing together as kids and started their band about 15 years ago. With Kevin on vocals, percussion, guitar and harmonica and Michael on lead guitar and vocals, they’ve got some folk/country/rock going on. Kevin’s also got some great expressions and stellar stage presence, surely due to acting background.  We love photographing artists of any kind and are especially fond of being able to rock out and shoot at the same time.

At the show, we also learned that being the good sport that he is and putting the joke made at his expense to a practical use,  Kevin started a non-profit called Six Degrees. It’s pretty cool. It’s basically a catalog or menu for charity work.  You can look up any issue that speaks to you, and Six Degrees will connect you with NGO’s/non-profits that are working effectively on that particular issue. Check it out.

    I recently had the chance to see these guys live on the East Coast and it was unforgettable. Had no idea of what to expect and WOW! what a band. Fun, challenging, haunting, and “just gotta dance” tunes kept the sold out concert tapping their toes and swinging to the beat for near 2 hours. Highly recommend with 2 thumbs up!

One of the things we love most about shooting conventions and corporate events is that we get to see/hear the most interesting speakers.  From innovators and inventors to actors and visual artists, our camera gives us ticket to see great speakers.  Our latest gig at the San Diego Convention Center included Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters and a super cool sand artist.  A local production company, MultiImage, made some incredible sets for the show! Gotta love the ocean set with the scuba guy on the cables. Pretty awesome.

We spent a good portion of the last week photographing a conference in Anaheim for SolidWorks, a software company that makes design software for engineers. Their software is used to make anything from airplanes to 3D imaging devices to remote control cars to flying cars.  They had great events and speakers, so we thought we’d share a few shots from the week.  One of the most exciting speakers was James Cameron (director of Titanic, Terminator and Avatar). It was timely to photograph him on the day that he was nominated for 9 Academy Awards!  He shared a personal philosophy of his that has influenced his success that we thought was worth sharing…”Luck is not a factor. Hope is not a strategy. Fear is not an option.”
