Project: Kitchen Ink

Process: As part of a national photo series on chefs with tattoos I was selected to photograph San Francisco chefs. San Francisco is a city packed with restaurants and plenty of tattooed chefs that work at them. The story consisted of seven different photo shoots at different restaurants around today.

Result: The cover photograph and a five page spread.

SF Weekly Truancy Feature: The ABC’s of Ditching School

Posted on: February 9th, 2010 by Joe No Comments

Throughout mid-January and February I had the pleasure of shooting a feature story for the San Francisco Weekly on truancy in San Francisco Schools. Written by Lauren Smiley, the story delves into the increasing truancy statistics, the attitude of the kids  and what the city and school district is doing to combat the issue. Read more here.


Thao and The Get Down Stay Down

Posted on: February 9th, 2010 by Joe No Comments

It appeared that the entire population of Valencia Street had packed into a sold-out Great American show Friday night to see San Francisco’s own Thao with the Get Down Stay Down. The group’s front woman, Thao Nguyen, pulled off equal parts cute and baddass as she tromped across the stage in her cowboy boots, headbanging her shaggy haircut like she’s possessed, while ripping it up on her enormous guitar. Thao’s on-stage charisma is contagious, and her wild, energetic style feels very San Francisco. Read more here.


Lucha Libre Wrestling

Posted on: February 1st, 2010 by Joe 1 Comment

If only the real world were like the pro-wrestling world: where divisions between good and evil are clean-cut and the good guys always win (the bad guys may appear to be winning for the majority of the match, but ultimately, good always perseveres in the end). Last night, the roughly 200 fans who showed up for Pro-Wrestling Revolution’s Lucha Libre fundraiser event for John O’Connell High School enjoyed three hours of brawling amongst the clear cut villains (which in last night’s case meant a very aggro trio of Border Patrol agents) and heroes (the mean, lean, well-preened Mexican fighting machines of Universidad de los Guapos) of the pro-wrestling world. Pro-Wrestling Revolution also held their very first women’s title event last night, which was taken by Mexico’s infamous Lady Apache after a gnarly chick fight with San Francisco’s own pro-wrestling champ, Alissa Flash (otherwise known as Cheerleader Melissa). Proceeds from the evening will help fund John O’Connell’s prom. Write up by Anna McCarthy


Cake @ SF’s Fillmore

Posted on: January 11th, 2010 by Joe No Comments

By Anna McCarthy-www.sfweekly.com
Although birthday cake was available upstairs, it was clear that last night’s sold-out crowd didn’t come to the Fillmore for the dessert — they came for Cake. The show was birthday bash for Bill Graham, San Francisco’s legendary music promoter who would have been 79 this year had he not passed away in 1991 after a tragic helicopter crash. Proceeds from the concert went to the Bill Graham Foundation, which provides grants for music, the arts, and education. Continued

Transit riders of all sorts from around the world, including those on San Francisco’s BART and Muni, took part in a “no pants subway ride” Sunday. The event first began in New York in 2002 and has now spread to 44 transit systems in 16 countries. For Sunday afternoon entertainment i hustled around the Muni and BART taking pics of scantily clad urbanites. Check out the pics below

The annual SF Bike Expo took place this week at San Francisco’s Cow Palace. A day of cyclo-cross racing, mountain bike dirt jump competition, bike fashion show and many vendors selling their wares made for quite the cycling enthusiast event.

The cyclo-cross course wound around the massive Cow Palace property, up and down hills, through mazes or dirt and even through one of the buildings to give the riders the ultimate variety of terrains.¬† The mountain bike dirt jump competition, featuring a variety of pro’s, took off from the side of a good sized hill and continued through 3 massive jumps to provide an awesome aerial spectacle.
