Yesterday the wonderful ladies at Urban FarmGirls opened their Bayview studio to the public to hang out and check out their works space.
Their Garage studio and office is right down the block from my home so I always see their sign on their gate and always wanted to take a closer look at what they were up to.
Bridgette gave a nice tour of their space and filled me in on what they are all about(It’s kind of a lot). Making pots, creating vertical gardens, and client urbanscaping pojects.
I also spoke with Tina, who started the whole thing. She does a lot of designing, you can see her plans in the photo.
I was able to take a few photos before my battery died.
UFG does an open studio about once a month. The next one is on June 22, and its a BBQ.
Check their site to find out more about them and FB to keep up.

For the last 2 months I have gotten to know Sarah quite well. I first knew about her as we began this semester in a journalism class together.
I approached Sarah, asking her if she would allow me to do my final photojournalism project on her. The Last 6 weeks I have been following her around and documenting her lifestyle.
With my project I want to raise awareness of the presence of visually impaired students at SFSU and those with other impairments.
I also wanted to show an individual. A person who doesher own thing and found her way into somewhere she is comfortable and challenged.
Sarah is a freshman at State. She is a BECA major, minoring in journalism. She mentors other students with visual impairment to use computer programs that help them use computers.
Sarah is from Central California. Now she lives in the East Bay, where she commutes to and from school daily.
Sarah is active in her church, where she sings in the house band, and loves to play other instruments on her spare time.
This is a glimpse of Sarah, and some photos from my project.

Today it’s a wet morning from rain last night in San Francisco, and the sun is beginning to peak out.
I am in the process of updating my website (maybe considering moving it to another platform sometime near). Hopefully the update will be mid April or sooner.
Wanted to share some of the ‘new’ photos that will be put up.
These are from a hangout shoot with Wendy Ch at Ocean beach in SF back from June last year.
Muses by Charmaine Olivia at Shooting Gallery 2.9.13
Saturday night White Walls and Shooting Gallery had their opening receptions for new works by several artists, which drew such a great turn out.
SF local artist Charmaine Olivia presented her latest paintings in the collection Muses.
I had the pleasure of visiting the new gallery space at 886 Geary, meeting Charmaine, and documenting the opening for Muses.
Jennifer from White Walls was incredibly welcoming and made sure I was having an awesome night.
The art works will be at the White Wall and Shooting Gallery til March 2nd.

Current Shows – Fall 2012
These past two weeks I’ve had two photos featured in two student shows at my school(SF State). On September 20, Animal presented by the Martin Wong gallery opened – featuring works visually themed on animals including various mediums; painting, photography, sculpture, and installation. Animal is in room 286(the Martin Wong gallery) of the Fine Arts building and closes this Friday 9/28.
The second show I have a photo featured in is the Abstract photo show in room 271 in the Fine Arts building by the Photo Guild at State which opened this past Monday 9/24 and will be up til next Friday 10/5.
Definitely check out the work in person and see the other awesome work in the shows.
Both rooms are generally open between noon-4pm, Monday-Friday.

‘Beat Bite’ solo show by Babs aka Lady Love at Nooworks.
This past Saturday I snapped photos at Nooworks for Beat Bite, a solo show for Mexican Illustration and graphic design artist Babs aka Lady Love.
Babs was super awesome and sweet.
Def check out nooworks while Bab’s art is still there and take a look at the women’s tees they printed up. There is also a rad pillow with Babs’ work on it.
See more photos from the opening night on SF Station here. Keep up with Babs on her website and Nooworks on their facebook page.
Summer – Fall Transition ’12.
This summer has ended on a high note, especially since I don’t feel it’s ended quite yet. I’m getting through the 2nd week of the Fall semester, and I already know I have tons of work soon to come. This summer has been great though, definitely. Made new friends, experienced new things, experimented with my work, hung out with friends I haven’t seen in a long time and a few firsts this summer for sure.
(I also got my first job!)
We’re working on a few new projects and other ideas are floating around, also I’m in a photo class this semester so I can’t wait to start shooting and showing new images that I come up with.
I know I need to catch up on updating the site, but for now a few new film images to quench our thirsts.
Cafes. dogs. food. girls. plants. settings. San Francisco.
