Baby Grant's First Birthday Dol - Los Angeles, CA - 01.14.12

I was given the honor to photograph a very special celebration for Baby Grant's first birthday party.  A traditional celebration in the Korean culture is the Dol in which the family gathers for food and celebration (much like a regular birthday party.)  During the Dol there is a big event called the Doljabi,  and every Korean family has their baby dressed in their traditional clothing (a hanbok) sitting at the head table.  The highlight of the Doljabi is where you put a few items in front of the baby to see which they will choose.  This is suppose to foretell their future.  Items typically include a pen (scholar), money (wealth), string (long life), golf ball (athlete), etc.

Happy 1st Birthday Grant!!

Formula Drift - Round 1 - Long Beach, CA - 04.07.12

Formula Drift kicked off the 2012 season on the streets of Long Beach, CA this weekend.  Playing host to over 10,000 fans and spectators a record number of drivers (nearly 60) entered for their chance at qualifying into the weekends Top 32.  All in all, nearly 20 of these drivers were 2012 rookies and would soon test their skills between the very unforgiving concrete walls/barriers that surround the Turns 9, 10, and 11 at the infamous Grand Prix circuit.

This was also the debut of some brand new cars and drivers for the 2012 season including Ken Gushi in the highly anticipated Scion FR-S and Daigo Saito from Japan in his 1,200 HP Lexus SC430.


First Place - Justin Pawlak - Falken Tire Ford Mustang
Second Place - Daijiro Yoshihara - America's Tire / Falken Tire S13
Third Place - Daigo Saito - Achilles Tire / Bridges Racing Lexus SC430
