Saigon Landing

Not going to type much tonight because I’m tired, it’s late and because it’s late nobody is likely to read this, but I’ll throw some photos up anyways. Food shots from Saigon Landing in Centennial and a brief portrait for Asian Avenue again. Gettin’ my grub on with Joe Nguyen, never a good day for my diet!

Enjoy ^^

And the portrait:

A special thanks to the folks who commented on my blog from last night… I’ll be replying as soon as I’m coherent and appreciate y’all taking the time to help me out.


Good Food, Good News, Good Day

Any day that involves free sushi and a phone interview leading to a flight to New Mexico for another interview is a good one in my book.

I’ll be heading down to Farmington, NM, where my brother goes to school and my friend works, to interview with The Daily Times.

As for the sushi… Got to do a fun food shoot for Asian Avenue at Taru Sushi and Grille on 120th and Sheridan in Broomfield. Who am I to complain?

Kalush, if you’re reading this, I was seriously considering titling this entry “What Brandon Eats” hahaha.

The following is simply Food Porn. Don’t look if you’re hungry, I must warn you!

(Just kidding, please look on!)


Got the opportunity today to shoot portraits of Colorado Rapids players Kosuke Kimura and Davy Armstrong at the Dick’s Sporting Good Park for the cover of Asian Avenue Magazine. The two are a class act, great folks and easy to work with, made getting a few different shots in a few different places relatively easy.

It was definitely an interesting experience, my first time just chatting with and shooting portraits of professional athletes, especially a pair who just won a national championship with the Rapids this past season.

Also had a chance to shoot with my buddy Joe’s 5D Mark II, reaffirming my love for that particular camera body. The detail it captures is utterly amazing and I love the full frame. Just an all around fun day to shoot today.

Thanks for reading and look forward to posting more in the near future!
