I love snow. The pure clean white, the soft sound of it falling, how it blankets everything in winter wonder. I even like shoveling snow. Unfortunately I don't live in a place that gets good snow. So every year I quest for it. I basically drive until I find it. This seasons quest brought me to Yosemite and I was not disappointed. Everywhere I looked was like a Bob Ross painting. Amazing!!
It's my first Northern California winter and so far it's been lovely. Bitter cold here is 50° just wintery enough for some sweaters. Here are some pics from my latest shoot. This one is in Marin Headlands with Amanda. See more on my website www.jamesbueti.com
Alaska, the last frontier. It seems around every corner is a majestic a place of beauty. Here are some unpublished images from a plane ride I took over the glaciers the last time I was up there. Unbelievable!!
My job sometimes leads to the most amazing experiences. August 1 Five hired me to shoot PR images for their new restaurant specializing in modern Indian cuisine. Everyone there was so much fun to work with and the best part was sampling the fantastic dishes after the shoot. Check them out at http://www.august1five.com/
Jamie Mahood is one of the best portrait tattoo artists on the planet. I was lucky enough to have this amazing women do my work a few years back and I wouldn't hesitate to have her do more. Not only are her skills top notch but the conversations are outstanding! We talked music, podcasts, art history, sex, books, and travel just to name a few. Check out her instagram @jamiemahood and if you have the chance sit in her chair. Here's an old series I did with her about a year ago but never blogged about.
Here's a pumpkin sowing us it's best dance moves!
It's fleet week in San Francisco which means the Blue Angels fly over the city on a daily basis. These pilots are amazing!
It's been one year since I left Dallas and JCPenney. It was a great stepping stone in my career to shoot on-figure fashion and lifestyle with JCP. I learned so much from the talented people that position connected me with. Here's some shots from one of the last fall campaigns I did with them. Thank you everyone!
Instant film isn't exactly instant. Once its exposed and expelled through the rollers, spreading the caustic jelly a magical thing happens. Over the next twenty minutes an irreversible chain reaction of light and chemicals slowly turns the blank canvas into an image. Recently I rediscovered this artsy, scientific voodoo on a work road trip. I shot one packet of impossible 600polaroid film, 8 shots to tell a story. The result were muted colors and stark landscapes that mean the world to me. My inner hipster just celebrated a little with some PBR.
Some of recent work I'd like to share. Check out more on my website! www.jamesbueti.com
