Stephanie Lazaro – 06/03/2016

We finally get back to the hotel, only to find out… I only have 15 min to shoot one of the models I’ve been wanting to work with since I began. But sometimes you gotta work with what you have. But seriously at this time I was exhausted… I just needed sleep. But it’s hard to sleep when you have Stephanie Lazaro around.

Ashlee Sem – 06/03/2016

After finishing my shoot with Neena, we had to rush out to the local park to meet up with Ashlee Sem to do a quick shoot before returning back to the hotel for our next photoshoot… I really just wanted to sleep at this point. I got to Angle Lake park, and the sun was starting to hit it’s “golden hour” I decided to lay on the grass… My eyes are slowly shutting… I can feel relaxation about to hit… “WAKE YOUR ASS UP! We only have 15 minutes!” – Ashlee

Anime Expo 2016 – Day 2

Make sure to check out my coverage and gallery of Anime Expo Day 2 at www.1nk5.me!

I have no clue why I do this to myself. Pack at 12AM, stay up getting all the gear ready til 3AM, stay awake for no reason til 4AM and then start the drive to Los Angeles by 5AM… Mentally exhausted, and body wanting to just shut down, I have no reserve energy. At Fanime I was able to get some sleep at least, and I was ready to go since it was one of the biggest Anime conventions in Northern California. But since I was so busy I didn’t get a chance to enjoy myself. So I told myself, “I’ll go to Anime Expo and make up for it”. I honestly didn’t know what to expect since it was first time going to one of the oldest, and most established Anime conventions in California… As I arrive to the LA convention center, I realized how big this really was… What the Shinto… What the hell did I get myself into… This is Anime Expo 2016…

Neena Rey – 06/03/2016

(The story continues…) we landed early in Seattle just so we can go downtown and do a bit of street shooting… With all our luggage… It wasn’t a really good idea, so the lovely Zoey Lee picked us up and brought us to our hotel in Federal Way. Finally time to relax. Until the front desk just told us that I couldn’t have the room… ummm wtf… It was already 2PM and our first shoot is set for 4. But luckily Zoey pulled the clutch and scored us a room near the airport. Now finally time to rest… Well not really.. cuz Neena just got to the room, and decided to stay on my bed… Fine I’l shoot… Everyone, this is Seattle’s Neena Rey.

Sallyna Bunny – 06/03/2016

I swear I gotta fire whoever plans my trips… Waking up at 4am to catch a 8am flight to Seattle was not a good idea. Running on 2 hours of sleep, and getting to a place that I have never been to was not a good idea. Well at least I can check into the hotel and get some sleep until I get my first shoot of the trip in… Or so I thought…. But let’s save that nightmare for another post! This is my set with Washington’s Sallyna Bunny!

Hot Import Nights – San Jose 2016

Check out my coverage of Hot Import Nights San Jose 2016 for Enix.me!

There was no need to travel far this time. No need to pack up and make a long trip to some place hours away. I can finally go to Hot Import Nights fully charged and ready to go!…. Or so I thought… Still tired from the Pre-Game party at Aura with the models, I get to The Santa Clara Fairgrounds late… The sun basically gone, and the cars starting to light up. The sound of the subs hitting, people chattering, photographers shooting, crowd cheering, and the sight of the models. All these mixed feelings together with my exhaustion brings everything into place. This was Hot Import Nights…
