2017…. it was a great year working with some awesome companies, people, and friends.  I really thank you for the support and hope to continue on in 2018.  This blog post will be highlighting some of the things I’ve done last year.

January 2017…  This was a busy month as I had a couple of car photoshoots and a trip to Japan.  Took a journey there for a week and then hung out in Los Angeles for a few days to get my Porto’s fix on.  Another exciting event was the soft opening of The Rice Box in the Heights.  A big step up for Johnp’s chinese food business…

February 2017…  Did some portrait work for an old client and soon after took some time off to travel and decided to tag along with @1013mm for a car event.  Traveling to Taipei didn’t cost much more to visit from HKG, so I went… then got back to the U.S. and shot a couple of vehicles for companies and assisting with wedding videography…
