Photo-walk Denver!

As of my last trip, I recently tried out a cool idea inspired by another photographer (Reilly) that I’ve now since taken on as a necessity in my week. I got a couple chances to hang out with my brother while in Denver – we went to this killer hipster joint called “Sputnik” that introduced me to one of the best combos I’ve ever tasted: French Fries and Sweet Habanero Jam! It’s like going from a PC to a Mac. You can never go back to ketchup…and if you do, you can only think about how much better the other one is. Needless to say, I’ll be back next visit. It’s up there with Enzo’s on Colfax.

(Hipsters really do know the best spots…)

On the way to Sputnik, I took some cool photos of random things in my bro’s place and some of the neighborhood near by. Here are a few of my favorites:

David Manning - Tim, these shots are awesome! Photo walks and photo adventures are clutch for me to keep in my schedule even when things get busy! They remind me of why I shoot photography and keep me inspired. I’m super impressed with these shots Tim! I think the image of the blue cassettes is my favorite! Or maybe the 12th fret on that electric guitar. Again, awesome job Tim, can’t wait to see more!January 8, 2010 – 5:19 pm

Sherry - Love these pics! Very creative! I can’t wait to see the pictures you took on your nature walk today!January 8, 2010 – 1:01 am

Lisa - Great photos! They really capture the cold, and how we are coping with it (or not!)January 7, 2010 – 6:03 pm


Earlier this break, I posted a status update saying that you can’t spell “Colorado” without the letters “C-O-L-D.” And that couldn’t be MORE true! The weather there was so cold that PENGUINS would wear gloves.

Despite the cold and all its frostbitten fingers – you also can’t spell “Colorado” without the word “RAD.” While I was in town, I brought my camera along to take some cool shots of the countryside, the cityside, and the family. Here are some of my favorite shots:

Fun things to do in Colorado

Mike - Fun post! Looks like a cool place to visit. Or should I say, ‘cold’ place to visit? HahaFebruary 7, 2010 – 3:05 pm

Alyssa Cruz - Great Photos Tim! Looks like fun (and cold!)January 6, 2010 – 7:52 pm

Todd McShane - Penguins wearing gloves, Tim? Now you’re just getting ridiculous.January 5, 2010 – 12:04 pm

Happy New Years!

It’s crazy to think that it’s already 2010…it seems like just YESTERDAY that people were freaking out about the end of the world and the horrendous computer problems that would be caused from “Y2K”. Unfortunately, these days, we don’t all have robot dogs and meals that come in pill form (although I highly doubt they could even compare to a burger from Rocky’s or a steak from Ruth’s Chris). But I will tell you one thing – we definitely partied like it was 1999 last night!

Cheers to the beginning of the 2nd decade of the millennium!

My work

To get you familiar with my average weekend, a large portion of the photography takes place at the best night clubs in town.  And what does that entail?

Party shots.  Club go-ers.  Crowds.  Go-go dancers.  Girls that want to be go-go dancers.  Ballers spending $5,000 in one night on alcohol.  Wannabe-ballers spending $500 on a bottle of alcohol.  Tourists.  Girls celebrating a 21st birthday.  Professional althletes hosting their birthdays as events.  Foreign exchange students “getting to know” San Diego.  Ravers dancing to their favorite house DJ.  Young professionals networking over cocktails.  Promoters trying to get you to go to their club.  Bachelor parties.  Bachellorette parties.  Celebrity appearances.  Celebrity performances.  Getting pictures of the mayor with his new hot-young secretary. Kidding about that last one.  I would never do that, but there are definitely a lot of other guys out there that in it for different reasons than I am, so I guess here would be a good place to tell you what I’m all about.

I love being creative with my camera, and being in a fun-filled environment like a night-club or hotel ultra-lounge each weekend doesn’t sound so bad for a weekend gig while I finish up my last year of school.  It’s always a blast getting to meet new people every weekend and being able to capture their nights in a stylistic way makes my job an easy thing for me to do.

So each weekend, you’ll probably see a few pics I particularly liked that seemed to best capture the highlights of San Diego events.  Or odds are, I thought some of the girls really hot and thought they deserved to be posted front and center on my blog.  Just kidding (Hi Sherry)
