Laura and I are in Los Angeles now for a wedding here this weekend, and we had dinner tonight with one of my oldest friends Eric and his beautiful daughter Velouria. I used to work with Eric a few years ago when we both lived in San Diego. Eric is now a celebrity/commercial photographer here in LA, and before dinner had just finished up working on a shoot with Robert Downey Jr. for Esquire magazine. It's really interesting to hear about those Hollywood photo sessions because they are so different than what I do. For one shoot, you have several assistants, a producer, a make-up artist, tons of lights, computers, etc. It's really an intense day of work, and Eric knows how to do it all. So if you're reading this and you're famous, call Eric for your next portrait.
