So for christmas this year I got myself a nice SLR camera. Well let me tell you it has opened doors for me. I have been taking pictures my whole life but never like this. I have been mainly shooting my friends at Disneyland and fun stuff like that. But lately I have also got some good gigs from it. About a month back I got the pleasure of shooting a Billabong event at Greg Noll's Surf Shop. It was a great night lots of people and of course Greg Noll. But the BIG shooting gig was shooting the Billabong XXL Awards. Now this was big time I had a press pass and was rubbing elbows with Movie, TV and Surf Stars. But the big thrill was when I spent the end of the night with the band Chevy Metal. But you may know some of them from the band Foo Fighters. It was crazy to be hanging back stage not just as a photographer but as one of the crew. The night was none stop fun and just amazing. I can't even begging to explain how great of a time I had. Looking forward to shooting more and more events. Here are some of the better shots from the two events.

I took this painting home with me at the end of the night it an original 1 of 2 Greg owns the other one

That is AWESOME Troy!! Sounds like a lot of fun! I don't know much about Chevy Metal but I know I loved the Foo Fighters when I was in High School! Well, glad your talents are taking you places you never thought you'd be!
