Update on the Doll House Dude

Looking at the Doll House Dude most people would think the man is just nuts. Doll House Dude was known for going around L.A. with a Doll House on his head. Lately there has been no doll house. Doll House Dude tells me what happened to his Doll House and his arm...

Mitchel Musso @ DLush

Actor & Singer Mitchel Musso best known for playing Oliver Oken on Hannah Montana made an appearance at D'Lush inside Hollywood & Highland much to the delight of female fans. Fans waited in the hot sun in 100 degree heat to meet the star. All they had to do was buy a Shout It Shiver drink for $5. Mitchel signed and took photos with fans before his concert at the House of Blues. Mitchel is going to be an even bigger star. Good Luck to Musso!

Wonder Pets Wins Another Emmy

Last night I touched an Emmy and I liked it. I met Jeffrey Lesser Executive Producer of Wonder Pets and another composer for the show. Mr. Lesser was walking down the street holding an Emmy. So I asked him who he was and he shared the good news. Wonder Woman started jumping up and down and told him that she is a big fan of the show because her 3 year old nephew loves it. It was a definite highlight of the evening.

Another DWTS Exclusive Debi Mazar & Maksim

Dancing With The Stars is a show that I love to shoot. Here is another couple that will be fun to watch Debi Mazar & Maksim. Both were kind enough to let me chat with them while they were taking a break from rehearsal. Look for a sizzling Samba inspired by Cyd Charisse.

This Shot Blew My Mind Baby Face & Tracey Edmonds

Guess who came to Lunch at the Ivy? Baby Face & Tracey Edmonds. This was a little bit of a pleasant shocker. And of course Brett Ratner was thrown in for good measure.

Brett Ratner & I are Having an Affair....

A very strange psychic affair is happening between Director Brett Ratner and myself. I said it on my twitter page last week, Ratner and I keep bumping into each other in Beverly Hills, in Hollywood, on Robertson.
So it was a running joke to me to see him on Friday having a passionate conversation on his cell phone. I was actually waiting for Ciara who was late. So I amused myself by pacing. And there Brett was.

Ciara Back Again To Robertson

Last week Ciara performed a staged shoot at Chanel. Rumor had it her last album didn't get the numbers so like all intelligent stars, her PR people are making sure she is out and about. While at Chanel the word came from Paige Jeans, for Ciara's people to know they were giving her an invitation to come over. So on Friday afternoon, Ciara showed up late to get some publicity.

Hopefully the stunts will work.

Kathy Lee Gifford Looking Great

Kathy Lee Gifford was out and about Friday. She was leaving the Ivy after having lunch with her daughter Cassidy. Kathy Lee & Cassidy were in high spirits because Cassidy was in town for acting meetings and things according to Kathy Lee were going well. Best of luck to Cassidy with her career.

Bob Saget, Vince Vaughn and a little Justin Bateman

Everything was going groovey till my camera strap got stuck...

Last Interview with Legendary Actor James Whitmore

Late last year after November election, I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. James Whitmore and his wonderful wife Norren Nash. James & Noreen were a lovely couple. I had a tragedy with loosing a ton of files on another computer and I was heartbroken when I thought this one of the interviews lost. I found it yesterday. James was a wonderful surprise that day and he had this to say about Obama and Proposition 8...

DWTS' Edyta Śliwińska - Get Her Name Right

Besides being beautiful, sexy and legs for days Edyta from DWTS is a woman that is hard to forget . Recently when a pap from POP TV (who happened to be using some of my pictures of Karina Smirnoff & Aaron Carter w/o permission or payment) repeatedly called her by the wrong name, this is what went down...

More To Ashley Hamilton than his Daddy

Having a famous parent can be a blessing and a curse. On one hand you have opportunities and doors opened that most only dream about. On the other hand, you are either always compared or expected to be something you are not. With a father named George Hamilton and a Godfather named Rod Stewart, Ashley Hamilton currently on DWTS, is working on making a name for himself. I chatted with Ashley earlier today and I learned some interesting things. Hamilton is a singer/songwriter and has wrote hit songs for Robbie Williams and Hillary Duff. He also performs comedy 5 times a week. But one thing about Ashley that is obvious is that he is very tall, attractive and always has a joke. So ladies if you like funny, good looking guys who seem genuinely sweet, Ashley Hamilton is your man. It seems Ashley is getting his bad boy image under control by living sober.

Aaron Carter Pulls Up 2 My Bumper

A few days ago, I was waiting on a star and after 2 hours in the hot sun, I found out she was long gone. Dehydrated and dejected I went to a gas station because I was about to run out of gas and when I left my car I heard a beep beep beep. Aaron Carter pulled up to my bumper so my day was saved. Here is just one of the pix.

Shorts Director Robert Rodriguez

Director Robert Rodriguez has come a long way since shooting El Mariachi in 1992. Those were the days that he had to do everything. Robert was a one man wrecking crew. Rodriguez also sold his body for medical experiments to fund his movie projects.
I respect that. Rodriquez wrote, produced, directed, shot, finaced and edited his first movie. All that hard work paid off because he is one of the top directors who has a special niche not only in kid flicks such as SPY KIDS & SHORTS but in Ultra Slick/Violent adult movies like Sin City & Grind House. His book, Rebel without a Crew: Or How a 23-Year-Old Filmmaker With $7000 Became a Hollywood Player, is one of my favorites on film making and is an enjoyable read.

Til Schweiger Ingenious Bastard

If you haven't heard the uber hot Til Schweiger is in Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds. Unfortunately I didn't see Schweiger at the Hollywood Premiere of IB but I did have the good fortune to photograph Til Schweiger while he was shooting a TV Show for Germany called Mission Hollywood. As I said in previous posts, I love a well dressed man. A well dressed man that speaks several languages is hot too. And a Well Dressed Man that is super creative, I hear that Til is a director, an editor and he is a designer of SHOES. He has his own shoe label by Footprints. A Modern Renaissance Man who takes a mean picture. Anyway, I love taking photographs of men like Til. And many of my shots sold in Germany magazines: NeuBlatt, BZZeiting,, FrauImSp, Ok!Germany, WeltDerF and Berlinr. So thanks Til Schwieger I hope to photograph you again and again. Danke schön! Tausend Dank!

DWTS' Maksim Asked About Marriage

DWTS' Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani Bringing Sexy Back

There is something about these two Maksim Chmerkovskiy & Tony Dovolani that I think is incredibly sexy. Maybe because they are MEN that can dance, maybe because their in great shape, maybe because the walk around in sweaty T-shirts and still smell nice. Oh and they are very nice...

Chelsie Hightower is the FAME Silohuette

There is a fantastic billboard on Sunset Blvd. & there is another one on Fairfax of a dancer doing a jazz leap. I've seen it numerous times and thought it would make an excellent poster and/or T-shirt. A few days ago we found out whose great body is on the billboard...

Although the Dancing With The Stars partners will be officially announced tomorrow, here is a first look of one of the cutest pairings is with Chelsie Hightower & Louie Vito. I'm only posting one picture now. I shot tons of pictures.

Ciara Stages A Chanel Photo Shoot

Times are tough not only for regular smucks like me but for businesses like Chanel and for singers like Ciara. The lackluster economy, has decreased consumers impulse buying. Record sales and luxury purchases are down. So it is a perfect opportunity for Ciara and Chanel to join forces for a staged photo shoot to generate buzz for both.

Melissa Joan Hart: Can Ms. Sweet Harts Dance?

A little good news my photo of Melissa Joan Hart is running in PEOPLE Magazine this week page 26. Here is the original photo.
People Magazine cropped the photo a little bit smaller than this one
The photo was shot in Melissa Joan Hart's Candy Store called "Sweet Harts" on Ventura. It is a beautiful place for lovers of sweets. Frozen yogurt, gelato and candy abound. I wish Melissa the best on DWTS this season. Her fans are very excited.

Actress Lynn Collins Gets Her Hair Done

Wolverine's love interest in the movie, Lynn Collins is doing very well with lots of big things in her future. I caught up with the actress at a hair salon in Beverly Hills...

Ms. Complicated Denise Richards

While I waited outside a hair salon that will remain nameless, I heard several people while they were either leaving or having a conversation near the front door, that were the kind of things that if you heard about yourself you would be hurt. Lets face it, we all say things that are cruel. I was kind of shocked at the viciousness that was being laid down. One called her ugly, another called her a slutt. The male went on to say that he saw her at the beach in a dress with no underwear and Charlie was smart to get rid of her. All this while I was sitting in my car trying to rest from the heat. Anyway, I was kind of shocked all this venom for Denise Richards steps from the salon were she goes to get her hair done...

Brittany Curran: Sweet & Talented

When I meet all these talented teenagers starring in films and having such a great time doing it, I'm in awe. Brittany Curran seems to be having a ball doing it ...

KAT Meets Jermaine Jackson

I talk to people every day about MJ, sometimes it is hard to say his name. One of my friends and I were having a conversation and I said let me tape what your saying because it was so true and he declined. He was expressing his frustration over the unmarked grave of Michael Jackson and why there wasn't a shrine.
When I met Jermaine Jackson several days ago, I didn't remember the murder investigation, the controversy over Jackson's burial, or even how to hold my camera at all times while shooting. All I could do was to speak my truth regarding the fallen pop star...

Christina Aguilera...An Angel Hits Hollywood The Longer Version

I posted a shorter version last month of Christina Aguilera singing "Beautiful". That version got several positive responses. I edited a longer version of the footage that I shot during Aguilera's filming of her PSA (Public Service Announcement) for World Hunger directed by Phil Joanou. A few people didn't know what a PSA was nor did they understand that there were several "takes" (several versions of the same movement" that were shot of Christina. This video gives an intimate look. Hope you enjoy...

Vanessa Hudgens

The starlet of the moment, Vanessa Hudgens is in possibly "contrived" controversy when some more nude photos of her under age are leaked right before her new movie. Why anyone shoots nude pix of themselves and then expects them to remain private with the overwhelming intrusive tentacles of technology is beyond me. Anyone who shouts "FOUL" after taking & uploading naked pictures on their phone or computer is either very naive and or very stupid. Possibly both?! Vanessa is a very talented young lady and who knows who is behind the nude pictures leak but it has increase Ms. Hudgens ranking in the Internet searches for the week. So as publicity goes, it is a win/win for Disney. But a loss for people against underage nudity and pedophilia. Here is Vanessa Hudgens leaving Jimmy Kimmel Show. My camera was having difficulty focusing with the minimal light but eventually locked on...
