Santa brought me an early christmas gift. An awesome textured backdrop perfect for head shots. Above is a black & white version of some test shots I did with my son. I can’t wait to use it again. If you need professional headshots, you may contact me at 559-638-9545.

I enjoy shooting my kids more than they like ice cream. The only challenge is to make sure they are all happy at the same time. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Larry & Sofia’s wedding Slide Show

Weddings by Frankie Leal

I shot my first ever Halloween Wedding in Palm Desert, CA. I always dress in all black when I shoot weddings but I wish I was wearing all white on this day. It was over 100 degrees, come on, it was October, shouldn’t it be cool? It is winter LOL

Never the less I had a great time and the heat didn’t stop us from taking pictures. The whole day was great. Thank you Larry & Sofia for choosing me to shoot your special day. Hope you enjoy the slideshow.

Augies Headshots

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

Augie and I go way back, back to our high school days when p-diddy was called puff daddy. Now Augie lives in L.A. and has appeared in many music videos as a hip-hop dancer. He was in need of some fresh hip headshots for his talent agency so he hit me up. The shoot lasted about three hours but we reminisced most of the time. To see more of Augie check out his personal web site at:
