Banchan a la carte has full service catering and event planning.

They catered for the HSBC grand opening in Korea Town.

They asked me to take a few pictures of their food during the event. So here are some photos of their food.

Here’s a salad.

HSBC had their grand opening [on March 4, 2010] of one of their branches in Korea Town which is located in the Solair building. This is the first branch to be opening in Korea Town.

Here is HSBC’s commitment to the environment which is located on a wall near the ATM.

PINIMAGE

My style is more photo journalistic, so I definitely like capturing candids a lot more. But I know HSBC wanted some individual photos and group photos, so I had people pose for a picture.

So here are some representatives and employees of HSBC (not just from this branch, but from other branches as well).

Now, thats enough of that ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s more of what was going on that night.

There were a few speakers at this opening, so here is everyone listening.

PINIMAGE

There were even some prizes for people who knew answers to some questions and history of HSBC.

PINIMAGE

There was media and people from the newspaper.

PINIMAGE

HSBC even gave 3 $5000 donations to the Los Angeles Conservation Corps, to Breathe LA, and to Charles H. Kim Elementary School.

PINIMAGE

There was also ribbon cutting!

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

Here are the employees of the Branch.

PINIMAGE

And branch members along with members from other branches.

PINIMAGE

Here’s their press release with my photo!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the gallery as always so you don’t have to read my ramblings.

If anyone from the event would like me to send them a picture, please let me know. I can definitely email you the photo ๐Ÿ™‚

I did Sabin Rich‘s headshots. He’s an actor here in Los Angeles.

Here are a few photos that are straight on.

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

This one includes some body.

PINIMAGE

I really like this one on the stairs. (I like doing head shots in the alley way behind my apartment complex. Not only is it convenient for me, but there are a lot of different walls to use. Normally, I don’t get to use the stairs because there’s always a homeless guy laying down next to it. But not today! So Sabin got lucky!)

PINIMAGE

This photo highlights more of his eyes. You can see some of the green in his eyes here.

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

Here’s more of a business look rather than casual.

PINIMAGE

Here’s the gallery of Sabin’s Photos.

It’s different shooting actors versus models.

With actors, you want to evoke more of a character in your photos. So during head shot sessions, I have that person think of the characters that they want to play or auditioning for.

The photos for head shots are of course more of your face. So you want to show everything through your face. I hate blank stares. As Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model would say, you have to “smize” (smile with your eyes).

With models, the body shape can be played with more. It’s more about the angles.

So that’s my little spiel on a few differences between actors and models.

Anyways, I hope you like the photos!

  • Kimi - These are excellent!

  • Jesse - Shot with the new lens? It def looks like it. Very nice.

I did a photo shoot for Jenny T. She’s an aspiring actress.

This photo shoot was for her head shots that she will be submitting them to casting agencies/agents.

I know these first two are really similar. For some reason, I really like the hair sweeping across her lip. I know she wont be able to use this one, but I still like it. And the 2nd one is where there isn’t hair flying everywhere.

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

And this picture is just vertical ๐Ÿ™‚

But again, a little bit different.

PINIMAGE

And this one is my favorite. I like how the yellow makes her pop a little bit, but not too much.

PINIMAGE

hope you liked the photos!

I did a photo shoot for Jasmine. And guess what? She’s pregnant! She’s due in May and it looks like she’s about to pop.

So here are pictures of her cute little belly.

PINIMAGE

PINIMAGE

And I guess I will include some of her face.

Jasmine’s having her baby shower in March so I’ll be there snapping away. And her baby is due in May so I’ll be there for that too ๐Ÿ™‚
