Good evening from EPHQ everyone! I’m one international photographer who’s MEGA excited to share some of the fun we had Sunday night at Red O Restaurant for the Oscars Viewing Party.
As you’ve seen on Twitter & Facebook – I’m constantly running around the world photographing Portraits, Red Carpet Events, commercial photo shoots with celebrities; Boo Boo Stewart AND Brittany Curran, working on the TV program; “Picture Me – Picture You“ filmed internationally entirely on a mobile phone.
AND more recently – getting hired as the Set Photographer AND as an Actor on the award winning movie; “Skyfell (And I Can’t Get Up)” for The Toscars & photographing the John B Concert all the while kicking off the EPIC Military Discount Program, AND landing two new sponsors that I’m about to share with you soon.
WHEW! Now where was I?!? Oh yeah – the Oscars viewing party at Red O Restaurant. :-)
Last week I received an invite from uber actress Burgandi Phoenix (who I worked with on “Skyfell”) about the Oscars viewing party at Red O Restaurant. It sounded like an awesome opportunity to get a few hours away from the computer editing & I quickly said yes.
As it turned out, Kristine was able to go with me so we popped up to Hollywood Blvd. to check out all the activity brewing for the Oscars that night, grabbed a quick bite at Jameson’s Irish Pub & then “Woosh!” off to Melrose to meet up with Burgandi who was rocking a dress by celebrity designer: Shekhar Rahate & her awesome & suave boyfriend & MEGA actor: Carlos Ramirez.
The night was filled with fun on the red carpet, great eats, delicious drinks and awesome company while I was able to pop off a few photos throughout the evening. I even had the opportunity to meet previous Marine turned actor; Javier Lezama who recently completed a critically acclaimed movie about an active marine who’s gay & serving in the military. ALSO! I met Makela Marjo-Riikka from Chekhov Studio International in Los Angeles. If you’re coming up in the industry or a veteran, Chekhov Studio International is THE one & only team of professionals that can (and will) help you with your craft & career.
Thank you to Ms. Ryan Fields; Event Director at Red O Restaurant who with her army of professionals (and Jeremy our bartender) totally put together quite the event for everyone to enjoy. I am already counting the days that I can come through and enjoy another evening there.
