2012 Family Equality Council Awards Dinner at Universal Studios Hollywood

14 Feb

On a beautiful spring evening in Los Angeles, I photographed the annual awards dinner for Family Equality Council.  This year’s event took place at the magnificent Globe Theater, situated on top of the hill at the Universal Studios.

The event started with a red carpet welcome, followed by a cocktail hour with live music al fresco.  The dinner and award ceremony inside the gorgeous main hall honored Todd Parr, acclaimed children’s author; Chad Griffin, the co-founder and Board President of the AMerican Foundation for Equal Rights, and Patrick Murphy, former congressman who fought to repeal the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy in the military.  Presenters of the award include Director Rob Reiner, Commander John Armantrout, and Actor Eric Stonestreet from Modern Family.

As the guests enjoyed a sumptuous meal, performances by the world-acclaimed Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and Jesse Tyler Ferguson entertained the crowd.

Headshots in Los Angeles

4 Feb

Takuya is an acclaimed actor and model from Japan who have moved to Los Angeles to pursue a film career.  Over the winter break, I shot several headshots for him with his new haircut.

Doesn’t he look familiar?  Perhaps you have seen him in a commercial or music video…?
