When we heard about the benefit concert for a new documentary about domestic violence from our good friend, Stephanie Watanabe, we were ecstatic to join and help out. The bands Festizio, Johnny Hi-Fi and Lion Riding Horses. You may remember them from Asian Rock Fest ’09 and ’10, but the main reason why all three awesome bands were there was to support the up and coming documentary that’s still being made.

You can check out the video trailer below.

About the film:
Recovering Irma is a feature-length documentary film that crystallizes in the aftermath of domestic violence homicide as Sandra and her nephew Lorenzo embark upon a road trip from San Francisco to her parent’s hometown of El Paso.

We heard great things about Cafe Du Nord, but the staff was super accommodating and the food wasnt’t bad as well.

Enjoy the pictures that we captured. It was a difficult venue to shoot because of the lighting, but we are thankful for full frame power on the D700.

P.S. Dog pictures next!

Some of you may remember Jack Tung from the Asian Rock Festival back in May that we shot.

His music: electricfying. His style: casual and trend. His personality: Super friendly.

When we first heard his music at the Asian Rock Festival, we thought there was a band of musicians playing music. Instead, we saw Jack working his magic like a beautifully dance number. With such ease, he played music through his guitars while simultaneously queueing music up.

It’s an exercise just thinking about it!

We decided to have have a photoshoot with him in San Francisco. See, Jack hails from NY where he grew up most of his life, but since moving to San Francisco inspired his latest tracks.

Walking through the streets of Chinatown brings back some good memories and we had really good light and weather that day to do some awesome takes around the town.

Visit his website at www.jacktungmusic.com to listen to his latest released album: “Baba, Mama, Gege”. (Dad, Mom and Brother).
